Is Marvel's 'Of The Dead' Their Long-Awaited George Romero Project?

Last Friday we showed you Marvel's "Of The Dead" teaser, speculating if it could be another "Marvel Zombies" book.  But Bloody Disgusting unearthed an interview zombie-meister George Romero did with Twitchfilm last year -- and while we have no confirmation, it seems likely "Of The Dead" might have something to do with this unnamed Romero comic. From Twitchfilm:

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!

No superheroes, huh? Could this be Marvel's own "Walking Dead"? Or might this relate to one of Romero's own zombie movie projects?

And what does it mean, if anything, regarding  Avatar's own "Night of the Living Dead" comics?

"Of The Dead" is slated for a Fall 2013 release date.
