Increased interest in zombie properties is nothing new with The Walking Dead in its sixth season, as we saw in May with news that George Romero comic Empire of the Dead had entered TV development. Now, one of the artists claims that The Walking Dead’s own home AMC has won rights to the zombie-vampire hybrid thriller.
Empire of the Dead
Marvel has published its fair share of zombie comics over the years, but now it can claim to have a one written by the father of the modern zombie genre, none other than Night of the Living Dead director George A. Romero.
The Romeo-penned Empire of the Dead, which will feature art by Alex Maleev and a variant by Arthur Suydam, who also provided covers for the various Marvel Zombies mini-series, will debut in 2014.
