@Marvel Announced New Zombie Series Empire of the Dead by @OfficialRomero

So you have to ask yourself is there such a thing as too many Zombie books. Well of course the answer is no, and it's hell no if George A Romero (Night of the Living Dead) is involved. Marvel has announced a new series written by the famed director titled Empire of the Dead which will feature art by Alex Maleev.

The title was hinted by Romero in 2012, but will be on-hand for Marvel's Cup ‘O Joe panel at New York Comic Con. Romero says this new series promises a "new predator" in addition to zombies a post-plague New York. The setting is a departure for Romero, who set and shot all of his zombie films in and around Pennsylvania.

Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said this about the new series:

"George A. Romero singlehandedly created the zombie genre that’s captured the public imagination for decades. Now, his unique vision for the silver screen comes to life on the comic book page – a chilling rumination on human nature and man’s place in the food chain, served with a terrifying twist."

Empire of the Dead arrives in January.
