The Walking Dead.
Just in time for Halloween, on Halloween in fact, AMC is premiering a new series called The Walking Dead. The show is adapted from Robert Kirkman’s ongoing comic book series, with Kirkman as an executive producer.
I’m really excited about this show. The comic has been one of my favorites for a while now and with the author on board, it will hopefully be a faithful adaptation. When I’m asked what the comic is about, I say that it’s a zombie story that’s not really about the zombies. It’s a story of survival and of the relationships between the characters that just so happens to include zombies, and as you may have guessed, I like zombies.
Even if zombie movies aren’t really your thing, you should give this show a try. When the comic first came out, many people who don’t normally like horror comics found themselves liking it for the well written stories and characters.
Here’s a few links to check out regarding the show.
