Sneak Peek: AMC’s Walking Dead Series

Published on June 2nd, 2010

Did you ever read Robert Kirkman’s comic, ‘The Walking Dead’? Did you ever want to know what the zombies in the comic would look like if they were in a TV show based on the comic book? Well thanks to AMC, we can now see the first look at one of the thousands of zombies from the upcoming ‘The Walking Dead’ show. It is directed by three-time Academy Award nominee; Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile).

Production for the show begins today in Atlanta. The show doesn’t hit your TV screens until October though. Also, the kind people at AMC have posted an exclusive first look image of “The Walkers”. Along with a gallery and a cool behind the scenes video with Frank Darabont.

The photos look great, I just hope they kept the show in black and white, since it is a big part of what makes this comic so great. It also looks like they kept coming back to a lot of Tony Moore’s designs from early issues of the comic. I love how the zombies look very much like Romero’s zombies.
