MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
There have been several images released from Marvel’s Thor movie that show off the costumes the Norse gods will be wearing.  While more time has been spent talking about Wonder Woman’s costume change, one has to wonder if the Thor costume design will play a role in audiences liking or ignoring the film

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is centered on Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer from Cynthiana, Kentucky, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse.

    I saw this great show on Space Tv about our facination with zombies and why we love zombie apocalypses. They made the point that zombies are walking ebola, that zombie movies are very “simple” settings us Vs. them and how Romero zombies were inspired by the movie “I am Legend”(before they were Voodoo type zombies), George Romero’s movies political messages were discused (Night of the Living dead: the living humans are the real monsters, Dawn of the living dead: we are all prisonners of the comsummer society, Day of the living dead: un-ethical medical testing, Land of the dead: hadn’t come out yet). They even discused the actual “zombies” bokors create with blowfish poison, you appear dead after being poisoned and suffer brain damage leaving you “zombified”.

    The most interesting part was why we read books on what to do in case of zombies, or why we prepare for zomby invasions = to feel as if we have control of our lives, we can<t prepare for plane crashes, cancer or terrorist atacks so getting ready for a highly unlikely scenario is our way to escape our powerlessness and feel "safe".

      It’s odd that I have no fear of flying and will usually fall asleep even during the worst of flights, yet the threat of the walking dead causes me night terrors…

        You are not alone, I’ve been eaten alive ny the undead in more then a couple nightmares, oddly enough I never wake up when killed/in pain and the dreams continue once zombified.

        We actually had a couple “in case of zombies/end of civilisation” discussions with the whole family, what is edible, where to run and hide (further north so they freeze), heck all except my mom own and know how to use a sword.

    90 seconds? Sorry if my review was a little too long, but I had a page of notes to cover. Oops.

      no worries…that limit is for going forward, as I hope we have a ton of comments on the MSP Hotline.

    What Stephen neglected to mention is that the alien bit in #75 is non-canon. Kirkman promised a long time ago he’d put aliens into issue 75, so he did.

      Well spoil it for everyone, why dontcha ;) Next time give us a Russell alert or something ;)
      Actually, when the review was written it was an advance review, and I didn’t want to spoil that cool moment in the book.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
