George A. Romero Marvel comic shambling forward?

Last October we reported on a Twitchfilm interview with modern zombie maker George A. Romero, where the legend admitted he was working on a non-super hero zombie comic. He was pretty tight-lipped about the book, and that was that -- until now.

Recently Marvel released this blood-spattered promo with the company logo and the Romero-esque "Of the Dead" tagline on it, promising a Fall 2013 release.

What's the take away? Well, it sure looks like George is returning to the funny books again (the first time was his DC Comics' "Toe Tags" miniseries).

Personally, anything that George is creating is a bonus in my opinion, and I think comics might really suit the kind of story telling he wants to pursue. 

Stay tuned...
