Zombie film legend, George A. Romero was interviewed at the Lund International Fantastic Film Festival in Sweden by Twitchfilm, where he mentioned a little tid-bit about writing a secret book for Marvel Comics. Apparently the book does not involve any of their superheroes, so “Marvel Zombies” is off the list, but he promises it will involve zombies. He refused to comment any more on the project, but you can bet we’ll be digging.

These are the only quotes he’d give on the project:

ROMERO – I am also writing a comic for Marvel. I’m writing it now, but it’s plot is a secret.

TWITCH – Awww c’mon George, just a little nibble? A tid bit?

ROMERO – Well I can tell you it won’t involve any of their on-going characters, there will be no superheroes. But it will involve zombies!

I’m not usually a comic reader, well…unless they’re horror comics, but this is definitely something I’ll have to check out. I can only imagine the freedom he’d have in the comic format as opposed to having to deal with producers telling him what he can and can’t do. Exciting!
