The Walking Dead Comic Will Be Re-Released in Color
Though many of its characters are morally gray, The Walking Dead has always been a black and white affair…at least in terms of the paper it’s printed on. Now, that’s set to change.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Walking Dead will return this October as The Walking Dead Deluxe. Creator Robert Kirkman’s studio Skybound Entertainment will be re-releasing each of the series’ 193 issues with some added features. For the first time ever, The Walking Dead will be printed in color, with colorist Dave McCaig joining the project to add color to illustrator Charlie Adlard’s art.

The Walking Dead Star Admits The Show’s Version Of Jesus Was A Letdown

The Walking Dead Star Admits The Show’s Version Of Jesus Was A Letdown
Tom Payne served on The Walking Dead for longer than most, starring as Paul “Jesus” Rovia on the post-apocalyptic drama from seasons 6-9, but the actor still thinks his character was a “letdown” to the fans. As he’s admitted before, the British performer elected to leave the series after he’d grown tired of Jesus always drawing the short straw. And in a new interview with Skybound’s Talk Dead To Me podcast, Payne has now elaborated on how he feels his role didn’t live up to the potential.

Payne recalled that he worked hard on his martial arts training, as per Jesus’ skillset, even though he ultimately never got to show it off much on screen. Given how the character is more prominent in the comic books, the star kept hoping that he would get more of a chance to shine, but ultimately decided that he didn

The Walking Dead Star Thinks Abraham And Glenn’s Deaths Went Too Far

The Walking Dead Star Thinks Abraham And Glenn’s Deaths Went Too Far
With its regular bursts of brutal violence, The Walking Dead has never been short of controversial moments. One of the most lingering though, the untimely deaths of Glenn and Abraham in season 7 premiere “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” has now even been stated to have been too much by one of those involved.

If you recall (like you’ve somehow forgotten), the main characters ended season 6 being herded into a trap by the Saviors’ sheer force of numbers, their leader Negan revealing himself for the first time after several of his minions previously claimed the identity, and selecting one of the group for death in retaliation for the number of his soldiers they had killed in confrontations, the identity of whom was not revealed until the series returned in the fall.

The Walking Dead Comic Returns with ‘Negan Lives’

The Walking Dead Comic Returns with ‘Negan Lives’
What part of “The Walking Dead” didn’t you understand, America?

A little under a year after The Walking Dead comic series concluded with issue 193, writer Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard are bringing their project back from the dead for a single-issue story called “Negan Lives.”

Negan Lives #1 will ship to comic book shops in July and is aimed at helping stores recover from the economic damage caused by Covid-19. To that end, no digital copies of Negan Lives #1 will be made available for purchase. Additionally, Skybound Entertainment will be taking care of freight costs for shipments of the book, leaving local retailers without any financial burden to stock the issue. The book is expected to be available for release at comic shops across the country on Wednesday, July 1.

The Walking Dead Actor Didn’t Think Those Gruesome Season 5 Episodes Would Air

The Walking Dead Actor Didn’t Think Those Gruesome Season 5 Episodes Would Air
The Walking Dead has never shied away from gore, and season 5 has to be one of its grisliest ever years. If you need a reminder, that season saw Rick Grimes and company encounter the Terminus gang, nicknamed “Termites,” who turned out to be vicious cannibalistic monsters. Things got very bloody on both sides, as Rick’s lot repaid the Terminus group in kind by brutally wiping them out once they got free.

Things were so brutal, in fact, that Andrew J. West, who played Terminus leader Gareth, wondered whether the episodes he was in would even be allowed to air as shot. While speaking on Skybound’s Talk Dead To Me podcast, West recalled filming some of the horrific scenes from the season premiere, including when Gareth and his men slit a stray survivor’s throat, which led him to question whether any of this visceral footage could be used.

The Walking Dead Rick Grimes Movie Details Teased by Scott Gimple

Joseph Baxter Jan 6, 2020

Andrew Lincoln’s return as Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead movie will be “bigger” in scale, teases showrunner Scott Gimple.

AMC’s The Walking Dead famously ushered an explosive epic exit for its main character, Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes, only to surprisingly tease a return for said character in a planned film trilogy. Yet, well over a year after that event – with the series preparing to premiere the second part of Season 10, with Season 11 already confirmed – we still know next to nothing about Rick’s movie medium crossover. Thankfully, the franchise’s appointed maestro, Scott M. Gimple, has provided a much-needed update on the features.

In an interview with EW, Gimple teases a bolder (and bigger) new direction for the continuing story of Rick Grimes, which is confirmed to premiere at theaters. Yet, despite the length of time since the October 2018 trilogy announcement, Gimple also
