Stern Pinball Brings The Walking Dead To Life

Stern Pinball, Inc., the world’s oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball games, announced today the availability of its Pro and Limited Edition models of AMC’s The Walking Dead pinball machine. As a big pinball fan, I couldn’t be more excited to see this beautiful machine.

AMC’s The Walking Dead, the most watched series among Adults 18-49, is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The drama tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse. Stern’s The Walking Dead pinball features everything fans would want in a flesh-eating pinball world. Players fight to survive the zombie apocalypse alongside series icon, Sheriff Rick Grimes, by battling zombies and completing various game missions. The game includes multiple zombie toys for adrenalin-filled zombie battles at familiar locations from the show such as the Prison and Cell Block C. A brilliant high-definition zombie-filled art package heightens the player’s excitement.

The Limited Edition (LE) version of the game offers unique special effects such as a fish tank with illuminated sculpted zombie heads and a motorized crossbow assembly that allows players to launch the ball anywhere in the game. The LE mirrored back glass with exclusive art adds to the dynamic pinball experience.

The limited edition model has a MSRP of $8,595, while the pro model has a MSRP of $5,995.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

the bunker 6 coverWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Pick of the Week: The Bunker #6 (Oni Press) – He came from the future to save the world, but, is the only way to save it to destroy it? Young and Old Grady meet, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Joshua Hale Fialkov and Joe Infurnari’s series will be at the top of numerous “best of” lists when this year is up.

Archer & Armstrong #24 (Valiant) – Valiant has the best universe out there, and what they’ve put together has been amazing, what a cohesive comic universe should be. Archer & Armstrong is an awesome example of their series, mixing humor and action with every issue.

Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers #2 (Dynamite) – Joe Casey and Nathan Fox are continuing their run on one of Jack Kirby‘s greatest creations, Captain Victory! The first issue exceeded my expectations, to the point we wanted to see what happened next. Bring on issue two!

Copperhead #1 (Image) – Westerns are a genre that are hit and miss in comics (and in general). This new series mixes in some sci-fi, in an extra long first issue for the regular price.

Death of Wolverine #2 (Marvel) – The first issue blew us away. Our cynicism was prepared for a cash in, but the writing of Charles Soule and art of Steve McNiven is an amazing combo for this fitting send-off.

Edge of Spider-Verse #1 (Marvel) – A Spider-Man centric event brings together wall crawlers from around the multiverse to deal with a killer who is hunting them down.

Prometheus: Fire and Stone #1 (Dark Horse) – Dark Horse is relaunching the Alien/Predator/Prometheus universe in comics. This series promises to bridge the cap between Prometheus and Alien, and hopefully right some of the wrongs from the movie. No matter, we want more Alien!

Stumptown Vol. 3 #1 (Oni Press) – Greg Rucka‘s fan favorite private eye is back, and now it’s an ongoing series! If you haven’t read the first two volumes of the series, you’re still good to pick up this one. The detective Dex has to get to the bottom of some violence before a heated rivalry transforms into war.

Wild’s End #1 (BOOM! Studios) – When a rural English community of the 1930s is the victim of an alien invasion, the residents’ lives are upended by the harsh realities of life-and-death violence. Led by the town’s outsider and retired war veteran, they will have to rally together to uncover the secret of their invaders and ultimately fight back. Writer Dan Abnett does War of the Worlds!

The Walking Dead #131 (Skybound/Image) – Did you read the last issue!? That ending alone is the reason this issue winds up on the list. What the hell is going to happen next?

The Walking Dead Companion Series Gets Pilot Order

WalkingDeadSeason3Poster-610x903Deadline has reported that The Walking Dead companion series has gotten a pilot green light. This is a good first step, but the series isn’t 100% guarantee since it isn’t a straight-to-series pickup, like the original The Walking Dead was. Calling the first episode a “pilot” is a good sign though.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert from The Walking Dead are also executive producers of the new show and it is being produced by AMC Studios. Dave Erickson, who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, will serve as an executive producer and showrunner. The show will go into production later this year.

The series will explore what’s going on in other parts of the world during the zombie apocalypse.

The fifth season of The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 12.

Winter is setting in. Time to find food and shelter is running out. And with a newborn infant to sustain, walkers are a greater threat than ever.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

united states of muder inc 4 coverWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Pick of the Week: United States of Murder Inc. #4 (Marvel/Icon) – Valentine and Jagger are on the run as the five families meet to decide the fate of the United States of Murder Inc. The alternate world story where the mob controls large parts of the United States has been a fun, and gripping read.

Armor Hunters #3 (Valiant Entertainment) –  Valiant has one of the best universes out there, and their current Armor Hunters storyline has been fantastic. It’s still not too late to get in on a great comic company.

Doberman #2 (Darby Pop Publishing/IDW Publishing) – 80s cheesy cop movies come to comics. Hilarious, and nostalgic at the same time.

The F1rst Hero #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – A new series from Action Lab has a world where people with super powers just begin to emerge. The first issue is fantastic, both as an introduction to this world, and also a one and done comic.

Genius #2 (Top Cow Productions) – I liked the first issue when I read it four years ago, and have been waiting for the second issue to hit. A nice spin on the idea of gangs in America.

Skullkickers #30 (Image Comics) – A stand alone issue before the next arc begins. Skullkickers is entertaining fantasy, and every issue is fantastic.

Starlight #5 (Image Comics) – Mark Millar’s Flash Gordon homage has been damn near perfect with each issue. Fun, entertaining, and pays tribute to classic pulp fun.

Transformers: Primacy #1 (IDW Publishing) – Some more Transformers history filling in the gaps of the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. The story is solid and art beautiful to look at.

The Walking Dead #130 (Skybound) – If you caught the end of last issue, how can you not want to read this one!?

Wolverine #11 (Marvel) – Marvel has big plans coming for Wolverine, and this is leading up to all of that.
