Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard, is underway. While the survivors grapple with the apocalypse and each other, ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who gets stomped into a pile of meat.
Last week: the flu continued to wreak havoc in the prison, an away team went on a quest for antibiotics, and Carol proved that she's willing to do whatever it takes to keep her people safe. Also, George Romero took a giant, steaming dump on Robert Kirkman's childhood dreams. This week, Rick and Carol go for a drive, everybody is consumed with something, and there's a lot of talking. It's pretty emo.
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.
Given his cinematic prominence, it wouldn't be out of turn to say that everyone writing zombie comics today owes a huge chunk of their mythology to the ideas in George Romero's horror films. That's why it should be interesting to see what kind of science the filmmaker drops his own zombie guide, "The Living Dead" in July of 2010
