No one doubts the capacity of the creators of The Walking Dead to create real drama and tension as we watch a group of survivors struggle through a zombie-filled dystopia where the most dangerous thing walking is not the endless horde of undead cannibals. But when season six ended with the seminal moment where the villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) arrived and marked his territory by bludgeoning one of our heroes to death, there was a twist: we saw the bludgeoning from the perspective of the bludgeoned. Fans were outraged! But don’t worry because Robert Kirkman says it will never happen again. (more…)
The season finale of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ had everyone buzzing for a couple of reasons. First, we finally saw the long-awaited appearance of Negan (portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Secondly, and what generated the most chatter, was its cliffhanger where fans were left to wonder just which character met their fate at the hands of this new bad guy, and his barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat Lucille. Time for Robert Kirkman to have some fun! (more…)
There’s just a month to go until the June 3rd debut of Robert Kirkman‘s new Cinemax horror series based on the comic book of the same name Outcast hits. Kirkman is hoping to tap into the Horror vein with even half the success of The Walking Dead. Cinemax is a good home for Outcast as the horror elements might have been too much for many main stream television channels. There’s a new trailer out that sets the tone of the series and what horrors one might expect to see. (more…)
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.
