The Thing and The Walking Dead



I had never read any of The Walking Dead, but I had heard great things about it.  So, when the Walking Dead series came on the air, I figured I would give it a look, and I loved it.  I thought it was very well done and was left really wanting more since only six episodes were aired.  They have been making new ones and they will begin again in October, I think.  It looks like the success of the Walking Dead TV series is influencing other programs as well.  I watched a few episodes of Falling Skies, and it seemed very derivative - a ragtag group of people trying to survive in a world dominated by aliens instead of zombies.  And now I see promos for Terra Nova, which appears to be about a ragtag group of people trying to survive in a world dominated by dinosaurs.  I'm not sure if I will be following either of those series, but I definitely will be tuning into The Walking Dead when it returns!

Dave sez,

Cool cover!

I picked up the first trade for The Walking Dead when the series premiered on AMC - we'd shut off our satellite service for six month to save a few bucks. The trade was discounted 25%. Can't beat that deal.

It was an awesome read!...and I'm not much of a zombie fan.

I'm hoping to pick up the next few volumes soon...

I hate zombies, yet I was strangely compelled to check out AMC's The Walking Dead. Great show, but I don't think Rick is going to survive a battle with Zombie Thing!

Ross-the comic is absolutely FANTASTIC, just like just about everything Robert Kirkman does. You should definately check it out. His other big book, Invincible, is the best superhero book on the market period. Based on everything I've seen on your blog you would dig both of these books.
