All we want to do is eat your brains….
We’re not unreasonable, I mean on one’s gonna eat your eyes.

The fine folks at Diamond Select Toys, Toy Biz and Dig Deep Entertainment have given us a KILLER subset of figures in the direct market Marvel Select Line- Marvel Zombies have come to feast. These figures were based on the 2005 five-issue miniseries was written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Sean Phillips , with painted covers by Arthur Suydam .
The Zombies (which we now know to have originated in Earth-2149) have appeared in several Marvel books and are currently appearing Marvel Zombies 2
Currently there are 3.5 figures in the series: Spiderman, Colonel America, The Hulk, and if you connect all 3 bases… what is LEFT of the Silver Surfer.
Digger and the gang at Dig Deep Entertainment have pulled out all the stops to bring these gruesome versions of Marvel Heroes to life… or death… or? They did a great job capturing the emaciated, disintegrating bodies and their creepy glowing eyes.
Zombie Spiderman features a detachable leg as seen in the comic. It’s not detachable in the comic, he just looses it. He holds it easily in his hand and balances nicely if you wedge his good leg within the power cosmic pouring out of the Silver Surfer parts on the base.
