Tonight: “Robert Kirkman’s Secret History Of Comics” On AMC (11/12/2017)

While I am sure that you know is name from his being the creator of “The Walking Dead”, it seems as though Robert Kirkman is a bit of a comic book historian as well and thanks to the folks at AMC, is delivering a mini-series called “Robert Kirkman’s Secret History Of Comics”. It airs tonight at 11PM EST (which means its post “The Walking Dead”, “Talking Dead” and “Comic Book Men”) but check your local listings unless you are programming it. Take a look at the premise and poster and then I’ll return with some closing editorial.

About The Show: “The Walking Dead” comic book creator Robert Kirkman stars in this documentary series that takes a deeper look into the stories, people and events that have transformed the world of comic books. It also features interviews with icons such as Stan Lee, Patty Jenkins, Lynda Carter, Kevin Smith, Famke Janssen, J.K. Simmons, Michelle Rodriguez, and Todd McFarlane, among many others.

Episodes:
1. The Mighty Misfits Who Made Marvel
2. The Truth About Wonder Woman
3. The Trials Of Superman
4. City Of Heroes
5. The Color Of Comics
6. Image Comics: Declaration Of Independents

PiercingMetal Thoughts: We long been showcasing our appreciation of the comic book medium here on the website, so any documentary series that gives us a look into a few assorted topics is right up on my radar of things to watch. There are only six episodes in full so you should be able to easily program your DVR or VCR (if such things still even exist) and watch at your leisure. I am also going to venture to guess that the AMC website will permit you to watch episodes online and then there is that On Demand stuff that is the talk of the town. As the episodes air, I will list their names up above for easier reference. I find it better to watch such a feature in sequential order just like a comic book series. The trailers for this in terms of the commercials and stuff I’ve read online make this look really interesting. What do you think? Will you be giving it a chance? Six hours isn’t a lot of time to devote nowadays. You can even binge it 🙂 Let me know what you think down in the comments section below.

Tonight: “The Walking Dead” on AMC (10/22/2017)

Hopefully the trailer that was released during the Comic Con International: San Diego got you all geared up for the new season because the moment is finally here. If you missed the trailer just click on THIS LINK to catch up and then sit down at 9pm (depending on your location) and tune into AMC as “The Walking Dead” returns for Season 8. I’ve added some S7 premise below the intense poster and will close out with some brief thoughts after the casting is recanted.

Season 7 Overview: This season adapts material from issues #100–114 of the comic book series and focuses on the oppressive group of survivors known as the Saviors, led by the vindictive Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Negan uses numbers, power and lethal brutality to coerce Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), his group of survivors, and the Alexandria Safe-Zone to make regular offerings of supplies and weapons for the Saviors. Eventually, Rick and his group seek allies to help them confront Negan, including members of the survivor communities of the Hilltop, the Kingdom, Oceanside, and the Scavengers, who have had their own dealings with Negan and the Saviors.

Here’s “The Walking Dead” Season 8 Official Comic-Con Trailer

I guess its safe to assume that a season trailer that attendees of the Comic Con International: San Diego are always looking forward to is the one for “The Walking Dead”. The show is beyond mega-popular at this point and is the source of a lot of peoples frustrations with Facebook since the spoiler folks love to say that something happened on their feed the second after it happens. I view that as a d–k move for sure but have learned to stay off the social network until I get to watch it since I was running out of people to unfriend after ruining it for me. With that said here is the recently revealed Season “8” trailer. Enjoy.

About The Show: After “7” seasons I am not really sure that I need to cite what the show is about but if you have just arrived to our planet or are waking from a lengthy coma as our principle character Rick Grimes did some years ago now, “The Walking Dead” is about life in a world besieged by the dead. Sadly, sometimes the zombies are not the worst thing that our survivors have to deal with and there you go.

Watch AMC’s “Preacher” (Season Two) Official Trailer

Hey there my serial television loving readers, I wondered if you ever gave the small screen adaptation of the hit Vertigo series “Preacher” a chance when it ran during its first season a few months ago. Did you like it? I watched it and have to admit that I was left for want with it despite liking the work that Cooper and Gilgun did. Anyway, a second season is coming and here is the full official trailer for what lies ahead. This might sound like a bit of a deja vu and it is of course since the same words apply. Here we go.
