CBR TV: Romero Discusses Zombie Culture, “Empire of the Dead”

There are few directors better known for their influence on the horror film genre than George Romero. Starting with “Night of the Living Dead,” Romero invented the concept of the modern zombie: the flesh-eating, reanimated corpses that rise from the grave. While his “Dead” saga has spawned a plethora of films, the director had more recently debuted a story in comics, writing Marvel’s “Empire of the Dead” with art by Alex Maleev.

CBR’s executive producer Jonah Weiland sat down with Romero during New York Comic Con 2013, discussing his seminal horror classic “Night of the Living Dead” as well as the story behind the “Empire of the Dead” comic.
