Earlier, I did an article where I talked about comic covers that homage famous movie posters. While writing that aricle I decided to hold back a few entries in anticipation of this article.

So, in honor of my Halloween zombie theme this year, here are some comic covers that specifically homage famous zombie movies of the past.

Marvel’s third Zombies mini-series (I covered the Marvel Zombies comic franchise earlier this month) featured covers that mimic old zombie posters.  Let’s take a look at those four covers.

Shaun of the Dead Marvel Zombies 3 #4

Another Marvel series that homaged famous movie posters was Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth.  It homaged a lot of famous posters like Jaws, Silence of the Lambs, The Graduate, Scarface and even Pretty Woman.  See them here on Comic Vine.  Only issue #3 homages a zombie movie.

  1. Hey, Pax! Just wanted to touch base with you, and compliment you on your style and knowledge. Due to our relative ages, you lean heavily on a time period in which I was completely uninvolved in this sort of material, and yet because of the way it’s presented, I find it interesting to read, and always come away feeling like I know something I didn’t know before. Well done!

    I mostly wanted to let you know that I’ve finally reorganized my links page, and CofA figures prominently. I hope it brings you some new traffic. People who haven’t seen this need to try it, and I’m guessing your stuff would be new to most of my audience.

    Take care, and keep it coming!
