USA Today is reporting that George Romero is teaming with Marvel Comics to put out Empire of the Dead. It is set to be a 15-issue series debuting in January 2014.
“These zombies are starting to show sparks of real care and concern for each other,” Romero says. “I’m not going to go all the way to Omega Man where they take over the world, but I’m having a lot of fun with it. We’ve got some new rules and new characters, and we’re taking it in a completely different direction.”
