    George A. Romero works to keep the zombie genre he created fresh and interesting by creating "aware" undead and skillfully adding in a vampire element. It doesn't feel forced or contrived. I was let down that Alex Maleev didn't pick up the pencils for Act Two and feel the series suffers a bit for it though Dalibor Talajic's art does work well here. Read Full Review

    Empire of the Dead is not a great comic but I can't deny that I really like it. Maybe it's just that we've had so many zombie stories lately about the brutal dark nature of man (IE the most boring focus for a zombie story) that zombie fiction straying away from that focus just seems infinitely better by comparison (hence why I tend to dislike The Last of Us but praise the World War Z movie.) I realize though that I'm not the majority in this taste and there's a chance you'll see this as not nearly dark enough for you palette and even so I have to concede there are problems with repeating past themes and the very poorly implemented vampires which just feel like lazy symbolic shorthand. Overall though like I said I liked Empire of the Dead and there's a good chance you will too, I recommend it. Read Full Review
