The Walking Dead is an epic drama where personal trials are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival. As a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions sweeps the globe, the dead are rising to feed on the living. The living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally begin living.
While Dynamite Entertainment has the Zorro license in the US, it looks like the character is getting a different treatment in Australia thanks to Silver Fox Comics. The new series has Zorro taking on drugs, samurais, the supernatural world, gypsies, and zombies.
It’s a lot for one hero to tackle I’m sure, and if you are wondering what it all looks like, take a look at the teaser trailer released by the company.
The good news is the zombies are on the outside. The bad news is the citizens of The Community are in the inside.
It may be a little late for this holiday season, but Marvel is set to release Jim McCann’s take on Dickens’ Christmas Carol featuring zombies… because everyone still loves zombies.
Thanks to The Walking Dead television series on AMC, zombies continue to be a big deal to our culture. If you have someone in your life that is obsessed with the shuffling dead, get them a Zombie hoodie for the holidays.
This hoodie features the battle scars you earned in your fight with the zombie hordes. Clearly, you’ve had better days. There are bloody handprints near the pockets and slashes across the chest. There’s a deep slash across the back that reveals your exposed spine. There’s a bandage on your left wrist revealing bite marks. There’s a chunk of missing skull on the back of the hood, which is lined in brains. We’d say you ought to get that looked at, except there’s a pretty massive blood spatter on the front of the hood around the area where your mouth would be. Which implies that you ain’t one of us any more. But you put up a valiant fight, and for that we salute you. But we’re not taking the helmet off, no how, no way.
For $60 the charcoal gray 100% cotton hoodie can be sitting under the tree Christmas morn.
According to an insider at Deadline, Frank Darabont, the executive producer/director/writer of AMC’s Walking Dead has let the season one writing staff go. Darabont wrote two episodes of the first season, and re-worked the other four, which brings into question if Darabont had to have a conversation with himself on why he had to fire…himself? While it isn’t unusual to let writing staff members go as you move into new seasons – and really, The Simpsons was never the same after Conan left – it might be troubling to some to hear this news as The Walking Dead is the hot, hot show on cable right now.
Fear not zombie fans, Darabont might be looking at freelancers for the next 13 episodes, but if you look closely at the writing credits from the last couple of aired episodes, you’ll see Robert Kirkman and Glen Mazzara appear. So will next season’s writing team consist of Darabont, Kirkman, and Mazzara? Signs point to Yes.
Spandex, the world’s first all-gay superhero team and stars of their own award-nominated comic, are back! And in the brand new issue, things take an unexpected turn, when the team face a whole horde of …celebrity gay zombies!
According to Comic Vault, the following commercial for their story was turned down by AMC to air during The Walking Dead.
Welcome to Comic Vault commercial that couldn’t be aired on AMC. This is an epic Zombie battle and we had so much fun making it. Thank you to everyone that make this possible! Keep on the look out for more crazy Comic Vault films (chicagocomicvault.com). Low Carb Comedy produced this film, give them some love as well by going to lowcarbcomedy.com. Take care and see you next time.
Now why would the commercial get the boot? Once might blame all the violence (a good excuse), but I have never seen a 1:42 commercial get approved. Trim it down and cut some of the violence and I’m sure there would be no problem getting the spot to air. Of course with all the publicity this store and video are getting around the Intardwebz, the spot has probably done the job it set out to do without spending extra for a national cable channel spot…
