Today, the zombies from George A. Romero's classic 1960s horror film rise once again in ten separate first issues of Double Take's Ultimate Night of the Living Dead comic book series.

The Kent seaside resort is not sure whether the Mary Portas pilot for its high street will be good for business

Precisely what's going on with Mary Portas and Margate? It began with £100,000 from Grant Shapps, part of a regeneration pot worth £1.2m, to be shared with 11 other ''Portas pilots'' high streets. It doesn't sound like very much. "I'd call that a lick of paint, more than a regeneration," said Mathew Holter, who works in the Turner gallery.
