Official Press Release

Marvel is proud to announce that fan favorite artist, David Baldeon (Young Allies), will be joining red hot writer Jim McCann for the walking dead tale that has fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation – Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol #1 (of 5)! Guaranteed to make you even more afraid of things that go bump in the night, Marvel’s twist on the acclaimed Charles Dickens tale will send chills down your spine! As the Hungry Death consumes the land, Ebeneezer Scrooge must be sent back to Christmases past with his undead friend Jacob Marley to learn the origin of this vicious scourge.

"When we started working on this idea, I was amazed at how well the original text worked in with the concept of the undead. We've taken a way to introduce 'zombies' in a Victorian manner, keeping with the chilling tale Dickens crafted in the 1800s,” said writer Jim McCann. “I think that David's amazing designs show you how well it will look. We aren't going for campiness or shoving zombies into a popular story, but for true Victorian horror...and a small glimmer of hope that lies in one man's cold heart: Scrooge!"

Artist David Baldeon adds, “This book is not about drawing zombies just because they're fun. It's about the characters, the horror, and a fresh yet horrifying look at Victorian terror while following along the lines of Jim's great script. It's about giving this book its own atmosphere and feel and making it look like no other version of Christmas Carol ever has.”

Can Scrooge, a man who has never known happiness, make it back from Christmas Past in time to see what the Hungry Death has done to the present and future? Find out this May when Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol #1 (of 5) hits comics shops everywhere. God help us, every one!
