Back in February Marvel put out a teaser "Of The Dead". It looks they might have been referring to the upcoming "Empire of the Dead" written by the famous horror filmmaker George Romero with art by Alex Maleev.
The book is described as such:
Welcome to New York City years after the plague has hit. But just because the Big Apple has been quarantined doesn’t mean that everyone inside is safe! Flesh-eating zombies roam within the confines of Manhattan…but they’re not the only predator that’s poised and ready to strike! Who or what is this new menace?
In addition to the announcement of the book, Romero himself will be making an appearance at New York Comic Con at the Cup O' Joe panel on October 12 at 4:00pm, and also signing at the Marvel booth before that from 1:30-3:30pm. Empire of Dead mini posters will be available at the signing.
Empire of the Dead will creep onto shelves in January 2014 (not Fall 2013)
