Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
It's October, so that means it's time to peek into the spookier corners of comics, ones that star ghosts and goblins, devils and vampires, and that other one. That "Z" one. So this week we're taking a look at The Walking Dead, the smash multi-media sensation from Image Comics by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. Find out what other zombie franchise was originally behind this comic, the lie that got the whole thing started, and the creepiest pieces of merchandise money can buy, as well as several other equally interesting facts.
As often as death visits The Walking Dead outright, the AMC horror smash has frequently maimed or mutilated others. The comics tend to go even more gruesome, to the point AMC’s rendition has specifically held back on a few occasions, but is one main character due to lose a significant body part in Season 6?
Whatever your take on Fear The Walking Dead, it at least offers some intrigue that AMC will air snippets of a one-off special during The Walking Dead Season 6, one character of which will join the “companion series” in Season 2. Now, AMC has firmed up details of the Flight 462 special, also providing our first photo. Is the new character hidden somewhere within?
Much of the focus going into The Walking Dead Season 6 has honed in on new faces among the cast, rather than the downfall of Alexandria outright. It can’t be long before walkers breach the gates, but what about the latest trailer suggests a decidedly more human invasion within the walls?
Just last week, Walking Dead Season 6 set photos overwhelmingly pointed to the arrival of comic favorite Paul ‘Jesus’ Monroe, though few could identify the actor under under a beard and beanie. Now, AMC has confirmed that Luck star Tom Payne will portray the Robert Kirkman figure, bringing about some eye-opening changes with him.
Faithful fans of The Walking Dead well-know that the AMC series has only time before casting its next biggest big bad since The Governor, and that day may finally be upon us. A recent casting call unmistakably alludes to one of Rick Grimes’ most frightful enemies, and a hell of a finale to Season 6.
The Walking Dead Season 6 has made no secret of its likelihood to adapt a few of the Robert Kirkman comic’s biggest stories, including some of its most memorable characters yet. We may yet have a line on one, as exclusive set photos from Season 6 reveal Rick, Daryl, Abraham, and one (figuratively) dead ringer for Paul “Jesus” Monroe!
Fear The Walking Dead has helped remind fans of the AMC horror-smash what its titular corpses looked like early on, a point well contrasted with early looks at The Walking Dead Season 6's ever-increasing rot. S6 may well mark a turning point however, as producer Greg Nicotero has reached a point of requiring digital effects to continue the gruesome decay of The Walking Dead.
Overdue for a new trailer though we are, The Walking Dead Season 6 teased plenty by its first footage at Comic-Con 2015, and the subsequent weeks. Now, with production deep into Season 6, new rumors suggest that The Walking Dead has already begun filming with a new major comic character, while casting calls suggest the next big bad will make an appearance before long.
By now, many of you have at least heard about the Walking Dead Escape, a traveling obstacle course of sorts themed around The Walking Dead. It's been regularly occurring in San Diego since 2012, with a few other adventures in Philadelphia, New York and Atlanta sprinkled in over the past few years. The Escape has been one of the big draws every year at San Diego Comic-Con for people looking to live out their wildest zombie apocalypse dreams. With it, fans can either participate as survivors hoping to make it out alive or be transformed into the undead by make-up veterans from the show, who then chase around the survivors.
Now, the Escape is part of Walker Stalker Con, itself a crowdfunded convention that allows fans to meet and greet some of the stars from The Walking Dead (and other horror properties) all over the globe. This year alone, there will be Walker Stalker Cons in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, London and the Bahamas, to name a few. No longer content with just one zombie apocalypse interactive scenario for fans, Walker Stalker Con is kickstarting an all-new interactive experience to premiere at the "home" show in Atlanta this October.
