In what may simply be a loving tribute to one of the most popular shows on TV or a very subtle commentary on Jay Leno's last episode as host of The Tonight Show, Conan O'Brien got in full zombie makeup Thursday night to commemorate the premiere of the second half The Walking Dead's fourth season on AMC.
Check out the Conan video, which led into an interview with TWD cast members including Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun and Melissa McBride, after the jump.
Most creators would probably consider a con to be successful if they had one big project announced. This weekend at NYCC, Fred Van Lente, who's already had a big year with G.I.

Brian Wood's scripting the latest relaunch of Robert E. Howard's Conan character, this time in a series called Conan the Barbarian. The DMZ and The Massive writer is using Howard's short story "Queen of the Black Coast" as a springboard for new stories featuring the barbarian. Wood's telling a classic
There are several few cool shots from The Amazing Spider-Man movie that hone in on the Webslinger's acrobatic feats in slow motion, but Conan O'Brien has come up with an even better use of the technology to showcase Spidey's less... superheroic... feats. Inspired by the use of high-def slow-mo capturing cameras at the 2012 London Olympics, Conan put
