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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted earlier today, I’ve only actually read a couple of the compendium editions myself as I was too late to catch up on the individual issues for an affordable price when it came to the earliest ones. I learned this was ending via the grapevine and made sure to purchase a copy at my local shop when I learned that some where still available once I finished seeing “Spider-Man: Far From Home”. This truly came out of nowhere and will cause the fanatics some heartache as they seek a first printing of the mega-popular series. Did you readers snag one or are you stuck waiting on the second printing that will be available on Monday. Chime in down below.
Shortly before I had to get myself into the matinee to see “Spider-Man: Far From Home”, the email came that announced that today the blockbuster comic book series “The Walking Dead” was ending with issue #163. Check out the press release and some statements down below.
The Press Release:
Image/Skybound’s long-running series THE WALKING DEAD by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard has come to its conclusion with today’s #193 issue. This final chapter in the pop culture phenomenon was hinted at by the events of issue THE WALKING DEAD #192 and, according to Kirkman’s farewell letter at the end of the issue, has been planned and a longtime coming.
“I’ll say it again, I love (loved… oh, god, I’m not ready for past tense) writing this series. I really don’t want it to end. In fact, I’ve been… kind of unsettled since I wrote the script for this issue. The whole thing just feels… weird,” Kirkman wrote in the letter. “In a way, killing this series has been a lot like killing a major character. Much, much harder… but the same feeling. I don’t WANT to do it. I’d rather keep going… but the story is telling me what it wants and what it needs. This needs to happen. Whether I want it or not.” Continue reading Released Today: Image Comics “The Walking Dead” #193 – The Final Issue!!!→
