Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comics might be coming to a television screen near you! AMC now has the rights, which means a potential series is in the works. The Oscar-nominated writer-director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption) is at the helm and will also executive produce.
The Walking Dead, which recently made the #1 position in ICv2’s Top Genre Properties list for Q2, focuses on a group of small-town survivors of a widespread zombie outbreak. As the characters struggle to eke out an existence in the face of worldwide zombie domination, some prevail–and some fall.
If you want to catch up on The Walking Dead before the series comes out, make sure to check out The Walking Dead Compendium. It contains the first 48 issues–four years of story–and you can get it for 20% off if you purchase it by the end of the month–$47.99, or about a buck an issue!
