Last July, the folks at Image Comics hit their long-time readers of “The Walking Dead” with a baseball bat as they revealed on the day of release that issue #193 would be the final issue of the long-running series. We discussed that shocking news HERE for those who might just be joining us here on the website, and this leads us to some awesome news about a special edition one-shot coming this July.
The Press Release:
The New York Times bestselling, award winning creative team behind The Walking Dead phenomenon—Robert Kirkman (Fire Power, Oblivion Song) and Charlie Adlard (Vampire State Building)—returns to the beloved series for a surprise one-shot story, “Negan Lives” #1, which will arrive in stores this July.
It wasn’t too long ago that we shared the first information about a soon to come third installment in “The Walking Dead” franchise. Back then the series had no official name and it seemed to be focused on the younger generation. With the Official Comic Book “The Walking Dead” endeding (discussed HERE), the time has come to reveal the shows title, and a teaser clip. Behold “The Walking Dead: World Beyond”.
Synopsis: The series, set ten years after the apocalypse, will feature two young female protagonists and focus on “the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.” Continue reading AMC Presents: “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” Teaser Trailer→
As you read this television premiere announcement, we are still entrenched deep within the Halls of Javits for the fourth and final day of the New York Comic Con. It’s been a massive event for sure with so many sights and colorful costumes to enjoy and as has been the case for many years now, every single badge features one or more of the characters from “The Walking Dead”. The end of the 9th season left most of us awestruck with what happened and just in case you are slow to catch up on things, I will not say anything more than it was a very dismal set of circumstances. Tonight the show premieres for its 10th season and the poster, Season 9 Recap and ensemble casting are listed below.
Season 9 Recap: Eighteen months after Negan’s downfall, Rick proposes building a bridge to ease trading, but this leads to more resentment. Rick is seemingly killed when he destroys the bridge to prevent an invasion of walkers. Six years later, his absence triggers discourse between the communities, and a new walker-controlling threat named the Whisperers demand the survivors do not trespass their territory. Their leader, Alpha, has acquired a large horde of walkers that she will unleash if they do so. After her daughter Lydia abandons her mother’s group for the Kingdom’s, Alpha disowns her and massacres many residents during a fair.

Speaking of reveals, though we are all getting anxious for tomorrow’s premiere of “The Walking Dead” which will be premiering it’s 10th season tomorrow night on AMC; an as-yet untitled spinoff series was revealed today at New York Comic Con and I’ve embedded the trailer for you down below. Take a look.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I will be honest and say that I don’t know what to think about this trailer. It seems to have a younger cast who all seem far too “innocent” for the kind of world this has become and offhand hit me like “Dawson’s Creek” meets “The Walking Dead” proper series. For me this fell flat, but who knows. Let’s see what the title becomes and where in the timeline this is taking place. I did at first detest “Fear The Walking Dead” but ended up getting very into it once a whole bunch of characters I hated bit the dust. I might still be a season behind but that is the glory of a DVR. What did you readers think of this new series trailer? Did you like it, or did you hate it? Chime in down below and know that as more information is revealed about the show and when its hitting the network I will be on point with it for our Pop Culture focused area.
Back in July, I shared the nominees for the 45th Annual Saturn Awards and you actually don’t need to refer to that post since I’ve decided to not only list the winning names with this kind of narrative but also those who each honoree went head to head against. I think that it makes this kind of post a little more interesting and since this is a lengthy read, I will get right on down to business. Take a look at who won and who didn’t and know that I shall return at the close with some additional editorial viewpoints. Remember that this is an event curated by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Enjoy.
