Parody of Machine Man #1
. I thought it was originally a parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey #8
, Machine Man's first appearance and an arguably similar cover, but Proto Man set me right.
Did you know that Marvel did a spin-off of 2001: A Space Odyssey
? That it was written and illustrated by the great Jack Kirby? That Machine Man, one of the stars of the new Marvel Zombies sequel, was introduced in its pages? Because I did not. I had no idea!
Shit, I didn't even know that there were going to be any Suydam covers for this sequel! And these aren't actually the "main" covers, these are only variant covers. But still! I'm so damn glad.
Remember: It's not really Marvel Zombies without Arthur Suydam covers.
