The Walking Dead Shamble Over to AMC

"The Walking Dead" has to be one of my all time favorite zombie stories out there. The fact that it's still going in comic book form (I just wait for the TPB) is fantastic. Hollywood has taken note of Robert Kirkman's intricate and painfully brutal story and a network that could do it justice has taken interest. AMC, home of "Mad Men", wants to put Frank Darabont (The Mist, Shawshank Redemption) in charge of raising the dead . . . on TV. AICN, the place where this miracle of news found me, has a link over to Variety where you can read more about the deal. I personally can't wait to see this.

If you also want to get a bit encyclopedic, head on over to this wiki page for some knowledge.

Omfg that is cool. I read the first few TPBs. I've always wanted to go back through and read them all, but I just recently got hooked on Y: The Last Man. I'm gonna have to see that thing through to the end before committing to another mag.

Y The Last Man has a terrific and touching ending. I've got all TPB's of that in my collection. The Wife loves Preacher. That's her favorite collection of TPB's.

Sick! Someone just recommended Preacher to me. Now I'll definitely have to check it out.
