The Zombie Apocalypse... coming. Are you prepared?

Seems that AMC has acquired the rights to "The Walking Dead", a cult-fave comic book series about a group of survivors dealing with life and the shambling dead.  AMC is gonna turn it into a series and since they haven't screwed up any of their other shows yet ("Mad Men", "Breaking Bad", etc...) my hopes are high.  And Frank Darabont is involved with the project.  That has to be a good thing.

I haven't read any of the comics yet, but my heterosexual life-partner Slyde drools over it like the zombie fanboy that he is.  In fact, I'm shocked he hasn't posted about this recent development yet.  Maybe the zombies got him.  I understand they consider nancy-boy flesh to be a delicacy.

See what I did there?  I affirmed his manhood in the first sentence of that paragraph (kinda) and then sullied it in the last.  I'm like tap water from indoor plumbing, bitches.  I fucking run hot and cold!


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the dead kids are doing it.

This is excellent news. What an amazing series it is - pick up the first trade and see what you think.

Heff said...

This show will HAVE TO BE extremely low budget to pull off the correct vibe. Big production ruins Zombie films.

Yeah, see there . . . that is why i come here.... the way you duck and weave while simultaneously insulting and affirming the manhood of your life partner Slyde.

BTW, sorry I missed the commitment ceremony last month. I heard it was beautiful.

Avitable - Slyde has been pestering me for a while to read it. I'll get to it one of these days.

Heff - Well, AMC does a great job with everything they do. I'm sure they will give it the respect it deserves.

Holly - He's been even meaner to me than normal in these here comments lately. I think I'm breaking up with him. ;)
