Halloween is right around the corner and fittingly enough we learn about a new zombies tale being penned for Marvel Comics by George A. Romero.

The horror legend behind classics such as Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead and Dawn of the Dead let it be known that he is writing a new comic book for Marvel that will feature zombies.

"I am also writing a comic for Marvel. I'm writing it now, but it's plot is a secret," Romero told TwitchFilm. "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!"

The first Marvel Zombies series was launched back in 2005 with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman onboard as writer. Throughout the years there have been more than a few Marvel Zombies series, with the latest being Marvel Zombies Halloween by writer Fred Van Lente, who heads over to Dynamite to pen his own zombie comic book.

The Marvel Zombies series saw a virus reach earth turning the Marvel superheroes into zombies, eating other, heroes and villains as well. The virus also made its way into space, effecting the cosmic characters, as well as went multi-dimensional.

It is unknown if Romero's zombie story will fit into that same universe or be something different entirely.
