Do you read the comic?
There's a few pics from the show on a few sites. Looks awesome!
No, I'm not a horror fan. Love the creators though, Robert Kirkman writes an excellent book called Invincible
and Tony Moore drew a lot of a book called Fear Agent
, which was amazing; so being familiar with their work and knowing how critically acclaimed this book is I'd say zombie lovers are in for a treat. From what I gather it's gory as hell but really, really character based, so all the losses and stuff feel tragic. Also, any of the cast could become Zombies at any time in any season, and if your following characters on a TV show that's always gonna have more impact than a movie.
I'm hoping this is a hit because so many comics are better suited to TV adaptations as opposed to movies. It's the episodic, long form storytelling.
That last photo also confirmed what I already suspected: there is not a single photo
of Robert Kirkman
that is not inherently hilarious
