Marvel Monday : Empire Of The Dead by Romero & Maeev

This is one of those books that make me glad I gave the Trade Paperback a chance after not really enjoying the first issue.

This story takes place in a world that has fallen due to the Zombie Apocalypse. Humanity pretty much has the same desires: Food, Drink, Entertainment. The Mayor of the city gives it to them. And in return the citizens bleed for the Mayor and his cronies. Literally. The rulers of the city are Vampires and the sate them selves on the population.

It's an arrangement that must remain secret. A lone scientist that is trying to study the zombies comes across one with rudimentary intelligence and a young boy that knows the secrets of the desolated parts of the city.

I really loved the plot elements and the vibrant art. As a Zombie fan there were many things to love in this book. I suggest potential readers follow the trade format since the story can drag in some places.
