AMC announced today the renewal of “The Walking Dead” for a third season. Season two continues to deliver the strongest telecasts for any drama in basic cable history against Adults 18-49 shattering a basic cable record set nearly 10 years ago for a single drama telecast (“The Dead Zone”). “The Walking Dead” is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. Glen Mazzara serves as series’ showrunner. Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Frank Darabont are executive producers. Greg Nicotero is a co-executive producer.
With Halloween just around the corner, and The Walking Dead tearing it up on the small screen, it makes sense that Comic Twart is going all undead. Andy Kuhn serves up his take on the zombie menace, and it looks great.

Robert Kirkman¹s first in a three book series with Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin¹s Press will hit shelves nationwide October 11th and is now available for pre-sale on Amazon.com.

According to TV Guide, viewers may get to see several flashback episodes in the second season of Walking Dead on AMC. In the quick blurb, fans of the series will see how Lori and Shane hooked up during the crazed time of the zombie uprising>
This shouldn’t be a big surprise as there was at least one flashback sequence in the Image Comics series where Kirkman showed the same thing.
The more surprising news is that Robert Kirkman is working on a Volume Zero that tells the same tale in more detail. While I’m all for more Walking Dead (providing the story moves forward), when a series starts telling tales of what happened before, it does send up a signal to me that “someone” is trying to stretch the series for as long as possible.
Walking Dead #86 made it to the 52nd spot on the June 2011 Top 300 list.
