The Walking Dead

walking dead

The comic series The Walking Dead is one of the best things I've ever read. It's unrelentingly bleak and heartbreakingly painful, and I can't get enough.

When AMC announced they were doing a TV series based on the comic, I was curious. When they started releasing promo shots of their gruesome zombie makeup, I wondered if it was on the right path? After all, the series is very much a human drama that just coincidentally has zombies in the background.

But seeing the first trailer has made me pretty hopeful. It seems to have the somber tone and tension of the books, so I'm pretty excited to see what they do with it.
