“Empire of the Dead” artist Arthur Suydam was interviewed recently at the Louisville Wizard World Comic Con where he announced that the Marvel comic, which is written by zombie king George A. Romero, is going to be an AMC program.
“This just got signed to AMC. The new big zombie series on AMC is expected to be this one right here,” Suydam told WHAS11.
We reported that the comic was coming to the small screen back in May. Back then it was announced that the, “…series will be written by Romero and longtime partner Peter Grunwald, and executive produced by Romero and Grunwald with Demarest’s Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson.”
The comic series not only focused on the zombie plague but also introduced vampires into the mix. It took place mainly in New York City.
The mini-series took place over 15 issues, which were released starting in January 2014 and ended in August of this year.
