    for those who don't know, The Walking Dead is a brilliant zombie apocalypse comic. But instead of focusing on BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD and zombies and stuff it follows a group of survivors in a post zombie apocalypse world. yes there is a lot of violence, and gore, and sex, and situations where the 3 are mixed together, but that's not the primary focus of the series. it's about survival and how far people would go to do so in a world that is so drastically different.

    I personally think this would make an excellent TV show, on HBO or something. But I like AMC enough (they did give us Mad Men and Breaking Bad) to give them the benefit of the doubt

    well most zombie fiction that seems to come out usually just focus on shock death.

    also the big major difference is that zombie movies usually take place over like a day or a week. this is telling a continuous story. no suicide pacts, no riding off into the sunset, no cures or answers or military. just people and zombies

    Hopefully this gets picked up. Even without anyone hearing of the comic, the recent boom of interest in zombie stuff and AMC's own reputation for putting out series should get this made into a series.

    Walking Dead could be part of AMC's October "fearfest" or is that not enough time?

    Read to the part where they decide to move all those campers after being outside the city for months, pretty good. I'll pick it back up one of these days.

    Looking forward to seeing the series.

    Holy shit, honestly surprised a quality zombie show hasn't popped up yet. I wonder how faithful they will be to the comics though, they could fuck up the whole flow by changing small things.

    Looks amazing. Hopefully they will find a way to put lots of sex and gore in an AMC program. :kaga

    It's coming out in October.

    If you wanna do a search and look for those threads be my guest, because I did and I couldn't find them so I made a new one.

    Besides it's coming out in 3 months so I thought I would start a fresh one.

    This is one of the few American comics that I keep up with. Kirkman seems enthusiastic about the show in interviews so I'm excited to see how it turns out.

    Can't wait. The series is probably the best zombie story I've ever read( including the over hyped High School of the dead). The show has the potential to be a huge hit.
    I'd kill over if they added the Governer/Prison saga to the series. He's in my top 10 favorite villains. Just epic shit.

    The trailer looks great. I'm really excited about seeing this. And, for some reason it isn't that good (god forbid), I will probably still watch it just for the zombies.

    I searched but didn't see a thread on this.

    Maybe I didn't search well enough but w/e.

    The trailer makes it look like its gonna be really cool and I can't wait. I

    ts directed by Frank Darabont from the amazing Shawshank Redemption :33

    The trailer kind of reminded me of 28 days later though.
