The Walking Dead TV SeriesSo, you don’t get AMC on your television?  Sadly, the home of such shows as Mad Men and Rubicon doesn’t air their episodes online… that is until now (and just this once). AMC’s has posted the pilot episode for its newest show The Walking Dead (based on the best ongoing comic currently on the market) online!

The series follows a Sheriff’s deputy, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) who is injured in the line of duty and is put into a coma. When he wakes up, he finds that the world has been overrun by zombies and his family is missing. That is all that I’m going to say, the series is really good. If you have AMC and just missed that episode, than you should watch it online.  If you don’t get AMC I feel your pain, but watch the pilot online and then find a friend that gets AMC. You have to know someone that gets it. Anyhow, you can watch the pilot episode here. The episode will be available online until 9pm pst on November 23rd, 2010. Also, you can head over here to check out the first volume of the graphic novel adapted into a motion comic. I have no idea how they do this, but it is truly outstanding.

The best ongoing comic series on the market, The Walking Dead, is making the leap to television next weekend!  AMC and writer/director Frank Darabont, along with the comic’s creator Robert Kirkman, are bringing the series’ black and white pages to life.  I must admit, the casting is pretty spot on and the trailers have given me a lot of hope.  Also taking into account AMC’s great track record (including one of my favorite current shows and three time Emmy winning best drama Mad Men), us fans should not really be nervous about the series.

Here are three new pictures from the series’ first couple of episodes:

Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead is easily my favorite ongoing comic series on the market today.  It is leaps and bounds better than anything Marvel or DC are putting out. It is consistently equal parts engaging and entertaining, with interesting characters and inventive situations and stories.  Thanks to Newsarama, you can read the first issue online for free.  Click here to give it a look.

If you like the issue, you can grabs the trades for the series on Amazon. They make a great gift and will be featured on the Geektastic Wishlist.

The best ongoing comic series currently on the market, Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead, could be making the jump to television screens from Frank Darabont and AMC.  In the series, a young police officer and family man, Rick Grimes, wakes up from a coma in a hospital to discover that the world has been overrun by zombies.  Not knowing how long he was out cold, he must regain his strength and fight through hordes of the undead to find and protect his family.

As I mentioned above, The Walking Dead is easily the best ongoing comic series. It is the one book that I wait for and it is the first thing I read every Wednesday that it hits stores. And as a huge fan, I have to say that I see no need for this to make the jump to TV. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see a zombie TV series (and I’m even producing my own Zombie Webseries), but The Walking Dead is perfect as it is. Being adapted into television will not add anything new or expand the universe in any way. I just don’t see a need for it.

With 5 years and 57 issues under its belt, The Walking Dead is as strong as ever. Not only is it one of the best ongoing comics on the market, but it is completely engaging and constantly leaves me on the edge of my seat with my jaw on the ground.

Created by Robert Kirkman, the series follows a small town cop, Rick Grimmes, who struggles to survive in a world over run by zombies. Kirkman originally pitched the series to Image Comics as a print version of Night of the Living Dead that would never end. While it became its own original story, Kirkman has kept true to the “never end” part of the pitch and he has said time and again that as long as he is allowed to publish the book, than he will continue to. Well, as long as he publishes the book, I shall be reading it.

Newsarama has an indepth interview with Robert Kirkman on the series and its March to issue #60, which is less than 3 months away.

“…everything that’s happening in the book is still part of the larger “Road to Washington” arc that’s going on in the book. They’ll be on that road for a while—and there are a lot of things that will happen to them along the way…but it’s all leading to them, or at least some of them, arriving in Washington D.C and what happens after that—and oh, boy—let’s just say I’ve never been more excited about this series.”
