Zombies of Various Flavors

I've been checking out a series of graphic novels called The Walking Dead. The creator is paying homage to all those cool zombie movies, his premise is following one character through his journey (as opposed to a movie, where at the end you're left wondering "But what happened next?") As with all the good zombie movies, the real focus is on interpersonal relationships and how people and society breaks down...kinda like MTV's The Real World, "What happens when people stop being nice and start being real." Just add zombies.

I also checked out a limited series called Marvel Zombies, which is friggin' hilarious. This is an alternate world where the Marvel heroes are super-powered, flesh-eating undead. So basically in each issue they're up against one hero who's still human (in issue #1 it's Magneto), who they slowly wear down until it turns into a feeding frenzy.
