Robert Kirkman‘s latest foray in turning one of his comic books, Outcast by Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, into a television series has its first trailer debut today at NYCC15. Outcast will air on Cinemax, as the channel increases its original programming series in an effort to get away from its soft core porn after 9PM beginnings. Outcast is a tale of horror and supernatural happenings starring Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous, Gone Girl) as Kyle Barnes. (more…)
I don’t know about you, but as soon as I saw our group of survivors reach the walled town of Alexandria I began to wonder when one of the coolest characters from The Walking Dead comic book series would make the transition from the comic book page to the small screen. Who might that character be? Why, Jesus of course! The kung-fu flying kick badass that helps Rick and company in some very tricky situations. (more…)
We’re a little more than a month away from the premiere of the sixth season of The Walking Dead, and while Fear The Walking Dead is offering some comfort in these torturous Daryl-free times, we decided to comb through the bloody past of the main series to pull out some of the most badass death scenes.
Warning, if you’re not caught up with The Walking Dead, there will be spoilers ahead, so you might want to close this tab and open one up one for Netflix so you can catch your ass up.
And now, without further ado, here are the gruesome end moments from old favorites and a few characters you may not remember. Because, in case you also forgot, there have been a ton of deaths on The Walking Dead. (more…)
With the season six premiere only a couple of months away (October 11th) for AMC‘s The Walking Dead, fans are wondering what’s in store for our hardy band of survivors. They’ve found some relative safety in the walled section of Alexandria, and been reunited with Morgan, but things aren’t all roses. We all know that bad things are headed their way. One of the baddest of the bad and one of the comic book series favorite villain is a guy called Negan. Everyone wants to know when he’s going to make the transition from the comic book page to the small screen. Showrunner Scott Gimple has a few things to say about Negan and Season Six. (more…)
While people may be talking about The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman has another contender coming out of the gate. Outcast, a title out of Skybound/Image comics, is Kirkman and artist Paul Azteca’s excorcism-themed project; centered around protagonist Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher with personal demons of his own, Kyle embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost. (more…)
While there is still a few months until the August premiere of Robert Kirkman and AMC‘s The Walking Dead spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, it’s just about time for the marketing blitz to kick off. First up is the standard teaser trailer embedded below. (more…)
I love a good zombie story. The emphasis in that sentence, however, is definitely the word GOOD. There are – pardon my very scientific term here – a crap-ton of movies, books, and comics that all revolve around reanimated monsters of one form or another; some are smart, some talk, some run, and some just don’t make any damn sense. I guess what I’m saying is: the genre feels very near to its tipping point (some would argue it’s already been reached). However, TV is one of the truly under-explored vistas for the living dead, and the folks behind AMC’s mega-smash The Walking Dead are hoping to double-down and hit big twice with the show’s spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead, coming later this summer to a small screen near you.

Contrary to popular belief, the first four Transformers movies had scripts. I know, I know, sounds unlikely. It’s like ancient aliens, Nessie and an honest politician, a rumor too impossible to be believed. However, with the notably exception of Revenge of the Fallen, which was mostly plotted through pre-visualization thanks to the 2007-08 Writers Strike, every Transformers movie has begun with a script. Well now they’re going to begin with a team of writers deciding on a story for that script. As per recent reporting, Paramount Pictures has put Akiva Goldsman in charge to oversee a writers room for all upcoming Transformers movies, and some familiar names are amongst the first roster of Transformers’ writing staff.

Considering that there’s so much uncertainty in the TV business in these days, it’s nice to see that there’s still such a thing as patience. Of course, when you’re the spin-off series to one of the biggest hits on cable, it could be argued that you’ve earned a little good will, which means good news for The Walking Dead‘s as-yet-untitled spin-off. The series will likely feed America’s insatiable appetite for zombie material, and like its mothership series, it will get at least two seasons to convince viewers that there’s a still a lot of fun and adventures to be had in the dessicated remains of the Earth filled with carnivorous cadavers.

Well, I loved this episode of The Walking Dead. I just had to get that right out there first thing, because I’m sure that there will be a ton of commenters across the Internet bemoaning that The Distance was just another filler episode. People, there is no such thing as a filler episode. That is an Internet myth created by people who don’t really want character development, just guns, guts, and explosions. What this whole episode boiled down to was trust. Who could you trust, when could you trust them, and how do you build that trust. (more…)
