More Zombies!

Yes, just what the world needs. More fucking zombies to pour on top of an already-overflowing bath of the undead. For example, today I noticed in a shop, today’s new releases featured a title called War Zombies Versus Something Irrelevant & Pointless. I may have exaggerated somewhat on this title, but it had military zombies in it, I shit you not!

Thankfully, at least commissioned for a pilot on American station AMC, is The Walking Dead, the long running comic created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore on Image Comics. Those that know me are pretty fed up of how amazing I find this series, and secretly wish to touch me in a platonic way as a way of thanks for recommending it to them as they’ve gone on to check it out themselves and loved every page they’ve read. Yet, there’s no denying that one of the most intelligent comics to be released in years is deserving of the show format. The story relies more on it’s characters, than it’s undead threat. Survival is a necessity, and how they obtain it whilst retaining morals and sanity is what I’d watch on a daily basis with no questions asked.

Frank Darabont‘s at the helm, as he’s another person who, according to reports, “gets it“. One can only hope so. The big wonder is how some of the series’ more graphic scenes (and I assure you, if you’ve not read it, they’re…graphic…) will be handled on television. Ah screw it, no it’s not a worry at all. Get this damn pilot going already, pick it up, entertain me, and don’t you ever dare cancel it. And don’t let Jay Leno on it either.

    God, DON’T let Leno on it. The zombies could feast on that chin for decades..
