How could we possibly end the NY Comic Con without finding our last day leading us right into the breakout hit of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”. The zombie apocalypse series will premiere its fifth season first episode tonight. Check out the poster and then we can banter a tad.
So is anyone hungry out there let me hear you!!!! Oh I am not speaking to you readers but instead any of the living dead zombified Metal legions that might have dropped by to see what we were up to with the website. That’s right it’s time to get yer chomp on because “The Walking Dead” has returned for Season 4. Once again this show will begin its run on the Sunday that ended the NY Comic Con.
I haven’t really done one of these “Comic Book Milestone” posts after only a ten year span of publication but with the breakout hit that “The Walking Dead” became this was very necessary to do. Published ten years ago this month by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” #1 was written and created by Robert Kirkman and featured art by Tony Moore. The series was set around a group of several individuals, primarily Police Officer Rick Grimes who after recovering from a life threatening gunshot wound awakens in an empty hospital and finds the world around him being slowly overrun by the living dead. The series is printed in black and white and while I don’t personally like those methods I feel that the level of gore is better delivered by not showing us so much vivid red. As a lifelong comic’s fan I am really surprised that I missed out on this when it first was released but then again I was much more into the superhero stuff to let it bother me all that much. My first glimpse of the actual comic was when I got a first issue reprint at the Book Expo back in 2011. I loved it and planned on ordering the trade paperbacks before cash got a little thin so I decided to wait until the compendiums were next on sale. Clearly this is one popular title and if you see anyone getting rid of single issues at a garage sale for cheap do yourself a favor and stock up on them (provided they are not the reprints of said originals).

So how have you been holding up since the mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” that left us hanging on by a vein so to speak back in December 2012? Are you still alright and functioning normal with no mysterious bites or scratches that might find you “changing” on us? Okay well then let’s continue and as I said when I decided to post a broadcast narrative for season three, I suggest anyone who has not yet managed to enjoy the goings on of the first half of S3 should stop reading now, and close this website tab because I want to bring some stuff up.
