Robert Kirkman Gets Psyched in ‘The Walking Dead’ Featurette [Video]

Whether you like it or not (and we all like it), the zombie apocalypse is almost here as “The Walking Dead” is just 30 short days away from its Halloween debut on AMC. Over the past weeks and months, we’ve seen video clip after video clip promoting the series, which always seem to balance new footage with comic creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman saying something awesome. AMC’s latest featurette is definitely no exception.The latest video promoting the Frank Darabont-directed series is called “Inside ‘The Walking Dead’: From Comic Book to TV,” and it’s essentially the origin story of how Darabont first came into contact with Robert Kirkman’s zombie epic and how both of them decided to partner up on the series. Beyond that story, there’s not a ton of new footage to be found in the video, though there’s plenty of screen time for that one zombie they keep showing over and over again. Yeah, you know the one I’m talking about.

Kirkman, too, gets some extended face time in this video, discussing the similarities between comic books and television, both generally speaking and as they relate to “Walking Dead” specifically. Indeed, the whole video is worth watching if only for Kirkman’s final assessment of how the series is going: “I honestly couldn’t be happier with the way this has turned out. If Jesus came down and said, ‘From now on, you can fly,’ I think that’s the only thing that would top this year.”

Yep, I’ll take that endorsement!
