There are certain authors who could write a phone book and I would run off to read it. Robert Krikman
is one of them. As the go to gal for graphic novels in my library, you know damn well I made sure to get The Walking Dead series
as part of my collection. I also make sure to read as much of the collection as I can. I got sucked into this series from word one. Cue the fangirlish screaming when I hear a television show
is being made!
And of course the "please don't fuck this up" prayers.
I consider my prayers answered! I am so happy with where this show is going, I can scarcely believe it! I've seen a lot of zombie movies (it was one of the cravings I had when I was pregnant... Don't ask.) and while I may be biased since I'm a fan of the comic, The Walking Dead gives me so much more than just "zomg, don't eat me." If I want that I can watch Resident Evil
AND I'll get to stare at Michelle Rodriguez
. Walking Dead is not really about the zombies, it's about the survivors and how this effects them. People love to sit and wonder "Gee, I wonder how I'd fair in the zombie apocalypse?" And here, you get a likely answer. You would scrape for any normalcy you could get all the while being stripped of your sanity and civility.
As for my plan? I plan to be the most epic zombie ever. Me and my zombie kid shall roam together a la this book
, until my hillbilly husband puts a bullet in my head. XD I harbor no illusions as to my physical prowess. I'd be infected and roaming the countryside in a week.
As for my little experiment, I've gotten one story complete so far and I'm close to another one getting finished in a day or so depending on where it goes. I'm also sketching again (hell froze over and Dad
is pissed) so I plan to open a Zazzle shop with some of my little doodles
on them. Anything to make the money, baby!
