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.

According to the official plot synopsis distributed by publisher Marvel Comics:

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.”

“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, in a Marvel press release. “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!”

“Empire of the Dead #2” hits comic stores everywhere on February 26th.
