Watch The SDCC@Home Panel For George Romero’s ‘The Living Dead’

Prior to his passing horror royalty George Romero was working on a novel. While known as a filmmaker – the man was also an amazing writer. After his passing, George’s widow – Suzanne Desrocher-Romero – approached bestselling author Daniel Kraus to finish what George had started and bring The Living Dead to the fans.

The book will be released on Aug. 4th and at this weekends SDCC, a virtual panel was held to discuss and promote the release.

Here is the breakdown of the panel via the SDCC page:

“George A. Romero invented the modern zombie with Night of the Living Dead, creating a monster that has become a key part of pop culture. Unfortunately, when he died, his last, epic story was incomplete. Enter Daniel Kraus, co-author, with Guillermo del Toro, of the New York Times bestseller The Shape of Water (based on the Academy Award-winning movie) and many other works of horror and suspense. A lifelong Romero fan, Kraus was honored to be asked by y Romero’s widow Suzanne Desrocher-Romero, to complete The Living Dead. The Living Dead will be released from Tor in August, but come join Kraus, Desrocher-Romero, and moderator Richard Newby (The Hollywood Reporter) for a sneak peak, as they discuss the book and the legacy of George A. Romero. Visit… for a special poster when you preorder the book.”

The panel is about 45 minutes long and it’s fascinating – grab a cup of coffee and check this out!

Again – the book comes out on Aug. 4th.
