“When a 9mm rings, an angel gets his wings.”

Show of hands. Who can’t wait for zombiemania to bite the dust? That’s what I thought. In the meantime, let’s bring out Mr. Meta Humor himself, the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool and run him through his paces during a zombie apocalypse.

Credit Cullen Bunn and Ramon Rosanas for making this work as well as it does. Deadpool has woken up from a food coma after binging on Mexican food and finds that he’s the only hero (work with me here) left. Bunn musters just enough of an original take on zombies, ample dollops of humor and pathos (you read that right) to make this a recommended read.

Note: I would pay top dollar to see him and the Deadpool Scouts eliminate Rick and re-set the Walking Dead.

Anne I wonder what will be the next trendy monster?
Vampires, werewolves, fairies, angels, and demons have all been done.


Jeff I think we're gonna see a sudden surge in incubus/succubus stuff. Or mummies.


Anne Mummies! Yes...
The succubus thing was big several years ago. I remember several series that featured these kinds of folks.
Of course, there aren't many species that the Paranormal romance genre hasn't latched onto.

Hudson This really caught my eye....my guess is djinni's. Or genies?


Anne OMG! Check this one out, Hudson...
Forced Mate

Hudson Oh God. Honestly Anne? Ever since I learned that there was genre in writing called monster porn, nothing surprises me anymore.
I love this question though. What is the next thing that will at first be cool and then be ruined by Hollywood?
PS I read a book recently that had a succubus in it. Her name was Lilith of course!


Anne Lilith has popped up in quite a few books I've read, along with Cain (of the Cain & Abel duo).
If they manage to make mummies sexy, I won't be surprised. I've read so many Zombie Romances that it's not funny.
So genies and mummies...anything else?


message 8: by Kuroi (new)

Kuroi Mermaids has already been done...


Jeff Maybe some sort of aquatic monster like The Creature from the Black Lagoon.


message 10: by Mike (new) - rated it 4 stars

Mike I think it'll be radical humans - and if Citizens United stands, the liberal variety. We've done radical Muslims to death (I hope), and government conspiracies still seem to be part of the collective (or maybe I'm reading too much socialist propaganda).


Jeff Androids. Nazi Androids.


message 12: by Hudson (new)

Hudson Wonder of they'll ever remake Creature from Black Lagoon? I would definitely check that out.


Kelly (and the Book Boar) I think we haven't seen the last of fallen angels (which makes me totally ready for the ACTUAL zombie apocalypse)


message 14: by Forrest (new)

Forrest Octopuses. One day, they will rule all. I'm not joking. They have nine brains, can camouflage themselves, large ones can make their way through very small apertures, and they can live and move outside of the water for significant amounts of time. The day they evolve lungs is the day we're all done for.

Unless we eat lots of sushi. Now.


message 15: by Anne (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anne I second Forrest. We need to get on top of that sushi thing now!
For the future of the human race!


message 16: by Forrest (new)

Forrest Oh, and I forgot to add: When a tentacle is cut off, the tentacle keeps hunting for food. I kid you not. Octopuses are terrifying . . .


message 17: by Anne (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anne Jesus! We need to eat them! Hurry, to the Japanese Steakhouse!


message 18: by Hudson (new)

Hudson Also, don't octopi get so filled with rage they actually turn color? Thought I might have read that somewhere.....so add malevolent temper to your list of horrors!
