George A. Romero's Empire of the Dead Gets Suydam Big Apple Variant


Why take a bite out of the Big Apple when you can take several bites out of her millions of inhabitants? That's the existential question offered up by zombie artist Arthur Suydam, whose Big Apple variant for George A. Romero's just-released Empire of the Dead has just been revealed by Marvel Comics. "George A. Romero singlehandedly created the zombie genre that's captured the public imagination for decades," said Marvel Editor In Chief Axel Alonso.  "Now, his unique vision for the silver screen comes to life on the comic book page – a chilling rumination on human nature and man's place in the food chain, served with a terrifying twist." 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? All will be revealed when George A. Romero himself comes to New York Comic Con for Saturday's fan-favorite Cup O' Joe panel (4pm in Room 1E). Before the panel, George A. Romero will be signing in-person at the Marvel Booth (Booth #1354) from 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.! Marvel will also be handing out an exclusive signed Empire of the Dead mini-poster (while supplies last).
