Walking Dead News
USA Today ran an interview with Kirkman about the comic book series as well as the television spin-off. When asked about how long he expected a television series to go, Kirkman had high hopes:
I’m hoping we blow past M*A*S*H. M*A*S*H, The Simpsons, Bonanza— I want 27 years of The Walking Dead!” However, as much as producers offer him cameos as a zombie in the show, there will be no shambling in his future.
The series sees it’s 74th issue hit comic shelves this month. If you look at each arc being a season you’re looking at 14 or so seasons worth of material.
JoBlo.com brought the news that Michelle MacLaren, former X-Files producer and director of several Breaking Bad episodes, is going to direct an episode of the comic-turned-series from a script by show creator Frank Darabont.
AMC continues their fantastic behind the scenes updates, this time with an interview with production designer Greg Melton. It’s a very interesting read as to how Melton used the comic series as a jumping off point to guide some of the direction and some subtle differences between the two.
