With Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead coming to a surprise end this week, Marvel has announced that it will be filling the zombie void this October with a brand new Marvel Zombies series to rival DC Comics and its DCeased event. The announcement came with a cover image from Inhyuk Lee featuring zombie-fied versions of Captain America, Deadpool and Wolverine.

And even if they do, can they hope to protect Earth from the infestation that has already claimed half of the known universe?
