The Walking Dead writer (who debuted the series with artist Tony Moore) Robert Kirkman has taken one more step toward multimedia domination.
His company, Skybound Entertainment, announced that it has hired Jon Goldman the former CEO of the video game company Foundation 9 Entertainment, to serve as a managing partner in charge of digital offerings and live events. The studios under the Foundation 9 umbrella have worked on a number of licensed titles, including Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, and the Wreck-It Ralph game.
While McFarlane Toys is usually quick to supply retailers with computer generated renders and prototype images of its The Walking Dead action figures, fans should be pleased to see that a slew of official photos for the TV series line's fifth wave have finally been released. Coming in February will be new action figure versions of Glenn, Maggie and Tyreese, plus an undead Merle Dixon and a Charred Walker.
After all the acclaim and attention Telltale Games got for the first season of its The Walking Dead video game, it'd be perfectly understandable for the developers and writing team to simply stay the course. To their credit, they haven't done that with the first episode of the game's second season, titled "All That Remains." The interface and art style are slightly different, the characters have developed and grown, and, most noticeably, the tone has changed somewhat.
But while I'm all for keeping things fresh, I'm not sure the changes are entirely positive.
Humans are back, baby!... at least in Series 5 of The Walking Dead Minimates line from Art Asylum and Diamond Select Toys. No, the tide isn't really turning in the war between humans and zombines in the TWD narrative in comics or on AMC's TV adaptation, but the latest Minimate two-packs at least focus primarily on the living. Seven survivors and just one zombie are coming in June -- and it's just a "Geek Zombie." Glenn, Maggie, Tyreese, Michonne, Morgan and Martinez should have no trouble surviving his attacks. What's he going to do? Talk to them about continuity errors to death (like we would)?
