The Walking Dead: Updates!

In an interview with Assignment X, writer/producer/creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman said that season 3 is “going to be awesome” – real shocker there. Showrunner Glen Mazzara tweeted that Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) has been upgraded to a regular character on the show! This by no means ensures her survival, but we’ll see how valuable she is to the group. Lord knows they need some chicks in the group who are worth a damn. And I bet Steven Yeun is happy…

New York Magazine recently asked the question which AMC drama’s kid has the worst parents? When evaluating Carl Grimes, they said this: “The minute there’s not enough attention paid to Carl, someone ends up dead.”  We have said this in many different reviews of ours. We’ve begged the questions “Where the hell are his parents? Does Carl even have a room? Why won’t Carl stop stealing guns and taunting walkers?” I think that it is safe to say, Lori and Rick are not parents of the year. [Editor's Note - I gotta throw a vote for Betty Draper in there for worst mother...]

In the final bit of news, USA Today gives us a sneak peek at The Walking Dead comic’s 100th issue cover! On the cover, the milestone issue will display all of the dead bodies of prominent characters we’ve lost from past issues. Ominous…

“You can’t see it, but (hero cop) Rick is actually holding a birthday cake in his hand. Or, I guess, his only hand,” creator Robert Kirkman says of the cover to Walking Dead issue 100, out July 11 from Skybound/Image Comics.

Boosted by the success of the AMC television adaptation, The Walking Dead is the highest-selling trade-paperback and hardcover series in comics — last month, it took all 10 spots on Amazon’s top 10 list of graphic novels.

So Kirkman wanted the 100th cover to be worthy enough for a landmark not many indie comics obtain. The image, by series artist Charlie Adlard, features a pile of corpses, including every prominent character who’s died in the series, from the evil Governor to Lori, wife of cop Rick Grimes.

That’s what we got for now. More to come for sure…
