The second season of AMC’s version of “The Walking Dead” started three weeks ago and, so far, the show continues the same quality as the first season….
At the risk of sounding like a fanboy, I can’t resist delivering one more brief pitch for “The Walking Dead.”
Yes, I know, I already raved about the first two episodes of the second season. But the third hour premiering this Sunday is an absolute stunner — featuring a terrific performance by Jon Bernthal — and the fourth isn’t much worse, with a scene that’s simultaneously revolting and downright hysterical.
Bear McCreary falls victim to the zombie apocalypse, not once but twice this fall. AMC has airing the second season of the acclaimed series The Walking Dead and BuySoundtrax Records has announced the November 2nd release of his original songs and score forChillerama: Zom-B-Movie. To celebrate these two events, McCreary has launched a new version of his very popular website and blog www.bearmccreary.com.

NYCC: Robert Kirkman Spotlight
Did you know, Robert Kirkman partially based Axel from “The Walking Dead” on the writer’s one-time Marvel Comics editor Axel Alonso? According to Kirkman, Alonso would pepper their conversations with “You follow me?” a saying that gave Kirkman such a kick, he bestowed the catchphrase upon the grizzled prisoner. Facts and stories like this flowed from the writer during his New York Comic Con spotlight panel, much to the enjoyment of assembled con-goers.
After a whirlwind of a weekend thanks to non-stop appearances and signings, Kirkman was openly tired during the panel, but that didn’t stop the charismatic creator from entertaining the huge room of fans. Sitting onstage along with “Walking Dead” editor Sina Grace, Kirkman ran through a slideshow that had been previously shown at the Skybound panel before jumping directly into a Q&A session that hit the obvious questions about his influences, delved into some meatier territory and ended with one unpopular fan’s spoiling of the previous weekend’s “Breaking Bad” season finale.
'Walking Dead' writer Robert Kirkman talks last night's episode: 'Bloodletting'
“Bloodletting” is a title you could give to pretty much any episode of AMC’s gore-drenched, zombie-filled Walking Dead. But it was a particularly apt one for Sunday night’s show, which found the stricken Carl (Chandler Riggs) being given transfusions of the red stuff from his father Rick (Andrew Lincoln) following the young ‘un’s shooting at the end of the season premiere. Said transfusions took place on a farm belonging to new character Hershel (Scott Wilson), a venue that seems likely to be the characters’ base for the next few episodes (at least those who can get there alive. IronE Singleton’s T-Dog was looking rather peaky by end of the show and heaven knows what’s happened to Madison Lintz’s Sophia).
Here’s an interview with Robert Kirkman about The Rise of the Governor…
“The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor,” the new novel from comic book creator and show executive producer Robert Kirkman and co-author Jay Bonansinga, is grotesque. This is a good thing, mind you; when it comes to the realm of flesh-hungry creatures of the undead, guts and gore are par for the course.
