When I first got this press release from Marvel for George Romero’s Empire of the Dead #2, I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on this issue and this series. I’m a little behind on my comics. My backlog struggle is real. I tell you what, I will be catching up on Empire of the Dead ASAP. Here’s our first look from the second issue.
This February, Zombie Godfather George Romero’s next undead epic continues in EMPIRE OF THE DEAD #2 – written by George Romero and drawn by critically acclaimed artist Alex Maleev! 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!
