    The Walking Dead

    Holy shit.

    AMC, yes, AMC... is adapting Robert Kirkman's THE WALKING DEAD into a new series.

    Wait for it.

    Written, directed, produced by Frank Darabont.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    I think you'll love it.

    I swear it's the only great zombie comic book series I've ever read. I have every issue, but haven't read the last ten or so yet because I've been trying to stretch them out as much as possible. I'm reading a few "humorous" zombie tales now, but this one is simply the best zombie series ever.

    My only complaint in the beginning was that the main male characters looked so much alike I had trouble telling them apart, but that is no longer the case.

    I went out and bought all four books. Cost me $120. Love them all.

    Has anyone else read through all of the comics?

    yep. one of the greatest zombie stories in any medium, if not the greatest. the last half dozen or so issues have been particularly great.

    That's a great pick. I think Tracie Thoms could work as Michonne.

    First I couldn't believe they actually did that. I had to re-read that section to make sure.

    I'm gonna see if I can get on that shoot.

    In preparation, I bought the first six paperback "volumes" of The Walking Dead, and I just read through the first one, and I really hope the other five are better, cause so far it's melodramatic, obvious story that's done nothing clever with the zombieism. It's reading like a greatest hits from better zombie "texts" like World War Z and Dawn of the Dead.

    robert kirkman is not really a good writer

    the first arc has the best art too

    The appeal of The Walking Dead has never been that it's new or original. It's that it's supposedly neverending. You don't get the bleak end ala Romero's stuff or a cure or anything like that. It's just a rotating set of characters where they die, they get new ones, they go to a different place—over and over and over again like an endless hell.
