AMC Has Done It Again

In 2003, Image Comics began publishing the eerie, yet typically comedic black and white zombie comic, The Walking Dead. American Movie Classics, better known as AMC, announced last August that they had bought the rights to make a television adaptation of the comic. Filming began on May 15, and the series is scheduled to debut in October.

The comic revolves around Kentucky-based Rick Grimes, a police officer, and his family, along with many other characters that are introduced throughout the volumes. The synopsis pretty much consists of what you would assume - a group of townspeople learning to work together while struggling to maintain their sanity and survive a zombie apocalypse. Goody goody gumdrops! Sounds pretty fun, huh?

I'm hypothesizing the TV show to be a great hit, especially if it's filmed and produced with the same degree of tact and entertainment that AMC's current original series' are, such as Breaking Bad and Mad Men.

There are currently 12 volumes; I have read the first six and am greatly anticipating the TV series premiere.
