Empire of the Dead #2 is scheduled for release February 26, 2014 and all the spectacular variant covers will be done by award winning Zombie King Arthur Suydam, with script by George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, The Crazies, Creepshow) and interior art by Alex Maleev (Daredevil, Spider-Woman, , Moon Knight, Scarlet).
