The Battle Continues in Romero's 'Empire of the Dead #2'

This February, Marvel along with Zombie King George A. Romero and artist Alex Maleev are bringing fans the second issue of their comic "Empire of the Dead." The story takes place in quarantine zone NYC, years after a horrific outbreak spreads across the nation. Though locked away, the inhabitants of the city are far from safe, for lurking amongst the masses are blood sucking vampires and brain eating zombies!

A press release reveals, "Something is rotten in the big apple. And it’s not just the rotten flesh of the Zombies overrunning Manhattan! Deep in the pit of the bloody Circus Maximus – the undead battle for the amusement of the living. But not all here is as it seems. Amid the fury of the arena, vampires roam New York City, hiding in plain sight! What menacing secrets lie in the dark corners of the once bustling metropolis? And when the zombies and vampires prowl – where does that leave the humans? Find out in George Romero's 'Empire of the Dead #2!'"

Be sure to shamble on in to your local comic book shop on February 26 and snag your own copy.
