This is the colour version of the Captain Britain and MI13 #6 Zombie variant.

Not sure who did the colours on this variant cover, but the lineart is by me, after Bryan Hitch.

Lineart version is here:

My shop only had the Hitch cover :crying: I would have loved to have this one. Ah well, I'll just add it to my :+fav:s. Nice work!

Yeah 1:10 variant ratio sucks. I'm lucky my retailer held some of the variants I forgot to order.

There were some on eBay last I checked, but, depending where you are, you may have to buy a couple of things to make shipping worth your while.

I hope it gets collected somewhere. I think they did it before with the first Marvel Zombies since they were doing crazy number of printings.

I love Romero and his concept but this serie totally suxor for me : gratuitouse ultra violence, just, gratuitouse ultra violence here...

Yeah, this Zombie thing Marvel is doing is not for everyone; the gore is gratuitous, but it's meant to be overboard, and zanily absurd.

Zanily absurd ? Kill Bill is like that (lot of blood, awesome dialogues) but on this serie...

Spider man eat his mother and his girl friend ("lol."), Captain America without the top of his head, the head of She Hulk explosed (by the way, sicked by the details... No niple or sex on Marvel : only brains and guts...).

The fans like to see their heroes like that ?!

Well...

Anyway, sorry for the flood, David Yardin. It's just my point of view.

Have a good day,
Olivier (37 yo).

Funnily enough, I hated Kill Bill and turned it off halfway through. :laughing: I used to like Tarantino, but in my opinion, Kill Bill was boring, unoriginal, had unnecessary violence (I don't mind violence if it has a use, but I don't think it helped the storytelling in anyway), and I didn't really think much of the dialogue. Each to there own I guess. :shrug:

"Spider man eat his mother and his girl friend ("lol."), Captain America without the top of his head, the head of She Hulk explosed (by the way, sicked by the details... No niple or sex on Marvel : only brains and guts...)."


I have not actually read any of the Marvel Zombies series (I've only done a couple of variant covers; that was more than enough for me), but yes that does sound zany and absurd to me. I personally think this excessive amount of cartoon gore is not shocking at all, and actually has the reverse effect, it's so overboard to the point of making it silly.

And yes Americans are funny in that they don't have a problem showing violence/gore, but cringe at the sight of a nipple. They'd probably have a heart attack if they were to print some of the stuff in your gallery. :laughing: I've only had to redraw three things in my career, and unsurprisingly, two of them were deemed to be too sexual in nature.

"[...]And yes Americans are funny in that they don't have a problem showing violence/gore, but cringe at the sight of a nipple".

Poor Janet Jackson during the super bowl :) For the gore, I'm afraid by the new comics and films : SAW, Alien vs Predator 2 (little boy disemboweled and pregnant women killed). I hope the usa'll be more cool in the futur (the europe "copy and past" the usa...).

"[...]they'd probably have a heart attack if they were to print some of the stuff in your gallery".

Lol ! :)

"[...]I've only had to redraw three things in my career, and unsurprisingly, two of them were deemed to be too sexual in nature".

Sigh... Nipple ? ^^

Have a good day !

Looks, damn good David! I noticed the Hitch influence... is this a direction you're going to be pursuing?

Nice work! When you compare it next to the standard edition cover for #6 it really is like holding up a dark horror mirror to it.

Looks like this'll be the second month running I go and get both covers...

Thanks. Yeah I saw that image you of the two covers side by side on your blog. Can't wait to see them on the shelves.

I wonder if this is still rated T+, or whatever Marvel's ratings are?
thelearningcurv's avatar
thats a really good question.... I think anything Zombie is T+

Thanks Dan. Wish I knew who coloured it. The Marvel log is where the sig's are... that's if the colourist added theirs too.
