Good comic....... if you like comics that rip off the movie 28 days later.


What a joke.


The only similarity really is that the main protagonist woke up in a hospital bed and the zombie apocalypse was upon him. Other than that it's only similar in the way all zombie stories are similar with each other. Besides, Kirkman was writing the first issue of this book and I believe it was even in the printing stage when 28 Days Later came out. He was surprised too.

By: MrDisgusting

Close your windows, lock your doors and clear your schedules. Come this Halloween, you'll have more to fear than trick-or-treaters. AMC has announced that its newest original series, The Walking Dead, will premiere on Halloween night, Sunday, Oct. 31 at 10PM | 9C!! The Sunday night series will debut with a 90-minute premiere episode directed by Frank Darabont (The Mist). Subsequent episodes will be one-hour long presentations. If that isn't enough to whet your undead appetites, perhaps footage from the series will: The official four and a half-minute trailer first screened at Comic-Con is now available online in full-screen HD! Watch it and then tell us, what are you really doing on Halloween...

Don't you have a PVR? I don't know if it's airing here in Canada on that date. I may have to download it b/c I won't want to wait.

well apparently my cable company decided to move a giant chunk of channels to digital, including AMC and TBS, so now i can't watch TWD OR Conan unless I upgrade, which I will NOT do. looks like i'll have to watch online.

comcast, they are upgrading everything to x-finity digital. all digital channels disappear from their basic cable lineup, so as more and more channels go digital us basic customers get less and less to watch. it's probably a good thing, since I'm in my final semester of my masters while working full time, and it's going to be pretty intense, especially with watching hockey (which will be online now). After my masters ill be moving back to the pacific northwest from chicago, and will probably get a better cable package at that time. I'm not going to upgrade now.

I'm so sad.

This is going to be hard to watch for me, too. I get AMC HD on 281 and it says I need to subscribe. So, now I have to pay more.

And I get even sadder when I find out that it premieres on Halloween. And no, I don't have PVR.

I think I'll be watching it on my computer rather than my nice big TV.

:( wah.

The Walking Dead Wins Season Two
…Before the first one even airs


The story of Frank Darabont's attempt to bring Robert Kirkman's beloved zombie comic The Walking Dead to TV screens has, in the last year or so, been filled largely with good news. It got picked up by US network AMC (and FX over here), went quickly from pilot to first series commission (AMC's usual six episode kick-off), and has been building some healthy buzz, particularly after the trailer was shown at Comic-Con and arrived online. Now there's another milestone passed as the show has won a second season before a frame of the first has even aired.

Fangoria reports that the show has been officially renewed, with filming set to start in February next year. And in keeping with AMC's usual schedule, the next season will be 13 episodes.

While the first season took place in the blazing Atlanta heat, it's possible that the next set of stories could take a cue from Volume 2 of the comics and be set during a different season. "It would be great not just to get out of the heat, but to present a different idea to the audience visually and tonally by having it be winter," Darabont tells Comic Book Movie. There's some really cool stuff that Kirkman did, where they find the one zombie that's frozen to the ground. I'd never seen that before and that's really cool."

And given that he and Kirkman have been playing with the narrative and shifting stories and characters around a little (though the overall plot will be largely faithful to the comic), he might just get the chance to introduce his favourite character from the books: Michonne. "When she shows up – and boy, is she a character I can't wait to get to – when she comes striding out of the wasteland like a Clint Eastwood f***ing spaghetti Western character cross-melded with some samurai movie, like the Baby Cart character with the f***ing sword, and there's just a little drift of snow in the air. I would love to put that on film."

So if you were excited to see the show already, now you don't have to worry about it being cancelled immediately should you end up loving it, and then having to go through years of therapy to get over it like we did to get over My So-Called Life and Firefly. Er. Ahem.

The first episode, written and directed by Darabont, will air on October 31 in the US and arrives over here shortly afterwards. There will be plenty more on the show in a future issue of Empire.

I love zombie movies/tv shows hope they play this in the UK or I'll have to wath it online. I'd like to see more movies deal with the breakout as it happens can't think of any that do it well anyone know of one?

We had a Zombie tv show over here once called Dead Set can't remember how good it was but thought maybe someone on this would like to see it, should be able to find it online somewhere. Was Kinda cool how it was set on the big brother show and it followed the inmates through the zombie infestation.

AMC is a great channel. This new show just proves it.

Network TV really has nothing to offer anymore except reality shows.

THE WALKING DEAD "Opening Titles" by Daniel Kanemoto

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7qwEl-_hVs

Here is a link to the original post:
Daniel Kanemoto has said -
"I wondered what the opening titles to this terrifying new television show might look like... so I animated a spec title sequence using artwork ripped from the pages of the comic, originally illustrated by Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore.

Just so there's no confusion, I'm not affiliated with the production in any way -- I'm simply a huge fan of both Frank Darabont and Robert Kirkman, and this is my attempt at creating a cinematic introduction to one of the all time great "continuing stories of survival horror."

Animated by Daniel M. Kanemoto
"The Walking Dead" Artwork by Charlie Adlard & Tony Moore
"Fresh Blood" Written & Performed by eels

I love zombie movies. They are the only horror movies I enjoy watching. Zombie games such as Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 are a lot of fun for me. Now they have a zombie t.v. series, this is going to be good. Too bad I don't have the channel but good thing with the internet, there is a means of watching nearly anything.
