Enjoy this very cool interview with Ian McCulloch, star of Lucio Fulci’s Zombie (aka Zombie Flesh Eaters, Zombie 2, et al) and Zombie Holocaust. (News & Star)

The Marvel zombies keep on coming, and this April Marvel Zombies 5, from writer Fred Van Lente and artist Kano, becomes the latest in the series. (Marvel)

File this under “almost certainly BS,” but ZombieZoneNews says Dawn of the Dead 2 is in the works, citing a Richard Rubinstein quote to Fangoria (unlinked…) and a Zack Snyder quote to SciFi Wire (also unlinked…). Somehow I doubt that every other zombie site on the web would overlook an announcement of this magnitude on two very popular sites, but I guess anything is possible. Can anyone provide a link to either of those supposed articles? I can’t find them myself. In the meantime, barring an official announcement from a reputable outlet, I wouldn’t hold my breath… (ZombieZoneNews)

A group of pop-culture scholars take on the eternal debate: fast zombies vs. slow zombies. (Proofrok)

A movie blogger for some small-market paper declares zombies a winner for the ’00s. I heartily agree, but must point out this is not news to us zombie fans. (The Sentinel)

Zombie site Zombiephiles is going user-generated, meaning people like you get to write the content, he gets to collect the advertising dollars. (Zombiephiles)

How’s your Korean? If you answered “Awesome” (or even “halfway decent”), then Neighbor Zombie, a new episodic zombie fiction, could be interesting to you. Its lack of subtitles serve as an effective barrier to my entry, however. (Quiet Earth)
