Yep, despite what you see there, the official name of the book is Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol. Why didn't Marvel put that title on the book? To fool folks into thinking this was yet another go-round with half-head Captain America Zombie or Iron Zombie or Spider-Zombie or She-Thing-Zombie? Me, I like to think it was because over at Marvel...they just didn't care.
How much did Marvel Comics care about Marvel Zombie Christmas Carol? So much that they cover-dated issue #1 as August 2011...and issue #2 as July 2011.
My conclusion? They just didn't care.
Now, there were many fine creators working on Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol, and I'm not pointing any fingers at any of 'em. I'm just cocking my head suspiciously at Marvel, trying to milk one last buck out of an overdone franchise. 'Coz, you see...they just didn't care.
