One minute tacos, the next minute… DEAD!
Deadpool awakes from a food coma to find New York City overrun with half-sentient zombies! And they don’t much like the whole starving-for-live-flesh thing. Can the Merc with a Mouth avoid becoming the Merc in their mouths?! Thrill to the sight of a hideous, rotting-fleshed monster shambling about the landscape… and don’t forget all the zombies that he’s fighting! (Get it? That first one referred to Deadpool. Who says zombie horror comics can’t have a little humor?) Cullen Bunn, writer of the fan-favorite Deadpool Killogy, brings us one of Deadpool’s darkest tales ever… and we’re not just saying that because it’s in black and white (and red)! You’ve been warned, my friends! So ring the dinner bell and nail shut the door as Deadpool takes on the ambulatory undead!
Girls, guns or zombies? Deadpool, guns and zombies!
My thoughts… Night of the Living Deadpool delivers a cool twist on the zombie apocalypse sub-genre by “tossing Deadpool into the mix.” It’s that simple – according to Cullen Bunn (in his story pitch included as an extra). He’s right. Night of the Living Deadpool, which probably should’ve been titled The Walking Deadpool [but, thankfully, wasn’t], is funny, gory and satisfying for fans of both zombies and Deadpool! I particularly love the artwork which is colored (mostly) in B&W and red! I loved that noir-ish style in recent Harley Quinn fan film Harley, but this comic’s style is more Romero-esque like another recent Harley Quinn fan film Harley Quinn vs Zombies! I love the ending, too!
