Bill Jemas is publishing comics based on George Romero's zombie flicks

The Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote a sugarcoated article about the resurfacing of Jemas, the man who crippled Marvel through weird betrayal, and the Night of the Living Dead adaptations he's releasing through the branch of a game designing company he works for now:
Bill Jemas, the former president of Marvel Comics, and the force behind the creation of Marvel's Ultimate Universe, at dipping into the comic pool again with a new series set in George Romero's zombie world of "Night of the Living Dead."

Jemas heads Double Take (2T), the graphic imprint of Take 2 Interactive (which produces the Grand Theft Auto video games among others). He said he will release the first issues of 10 series in the "Ultimate Night of the Living Dead" universe on September 16.
So now he's working for a company whose most notorious video game is one where you take up the role of a criminal! And this isn't the first time outside his prior job at Marvel he's led to controversy. Earlier, he wrote a children's book with a profane title. It didn't do well, and he was asking for failure.

This news probably tells quite a bit about Jemas' personal character, and why he was such a bad fit for Marvel. Some could argue it might've been better had they gone bankrupt, since there's always a chance they would've been bought out by companies with more respect for their properties than even Disney's shown, and maybe Joe Quesada wouldn't have been hired as EIC. What Jemas did in his time only sealed the long term fate of Marvel's publishing arm.

Did that guy even watch Night of the Living Dead before he started writing the plot?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
