Take a Bite Out of This Preview of George A. Romero's Empire of the DeadGeorge A. Romero and Marvel Comics are getting ready to take a bite out of the Big Apple in their new comic Empire of the Dead, and we now have a preview of the goods for you flesh-eaters right here! Read on!

Take your first look at Empire of the Dead #1 below. The issue is slated for release in January.

When the dead fight the dead – where does that leave the living? Marvel is pleased to present your very first look at Empire of the Dead #1 – from zombie godfather and horror visionary George Romero and Eisner Award winning artist Alex Maleev!

Welcome to New York City years after a horrifying plague has swept the nation. The Big Apple is a quarantine zone – but that doesn’t guarantee safety inside! Flesh-eating zombies roam within the remains of Manhattan – and they are not alone. Vampires lurk in the shadows as well, feasting on the living and the undead alike – and no one is safe!

“Like a surgeon, George Romero is once again using the horror genre as a scalpel, cutting through the surface of everyday life to expose society’s undercurrents,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “One could say that the vampires are the Haves and the zombies are the Have-Nots. And us poor humans? We’re the ones getting caught in the crossfire of their escalating war. It’s a violent clash indeed, and Alex Maleev is bringing this undead battle to horrifying – but beautiful – life!”

What happens when the undead invade the city that never sleeps? Find out when Empire of the Dead #1 shambles into a comic shop near you this January!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  1. Funny how the originator of the modern Zombie is now trying to follow in the footsteps of TWD now that his creation has gone mainstream .I grew up on Romero he helped mold me into the sick fiend i am today I saw Dawn, Day & CREEPSHOW’S in theater found the Dark Half to be brilliant but the man has not produced anything really memorable for decades & after he dissed TWD i could give a shit about what he has to say but he’s entitled to his opinion like anybody else .If anything TWD is a total homage to what he created and his vision it’s inspiration .There are so many Zombie comics in the market hope this actually has some substance & integrity and isn’t just a cash grabber .
