Walking Dead to head to AMC

Robert Kirkman’s comic series Walking Dead is going to be a television show, with Frank Darabont on board. Darabont directed The Mist, which I thought was a great adaptation of Stephen King’s short story. Darabont also worked on the screenpaly for Saving Private Ryan. In other words, the man has street cred.

Walking Dead is a great series and Robert Kirkman‘s exploration of how people survive and what they are willing to do is amazing. Oh, and there are a bunch of zombies! I loved Tony Moore‘s work on this series and Charlie Adlard has been doing a damn fine job since Moore left the book. it’s a book I will not miss.

I really hope this all works out because it could be a great show.
