    Looks great

    For those that never read the comic, it's not a zombie story. It's a post-apocalyptic story. The zombies have very little to do with the day to day events that happen to the survivors. The comic is a bit contrived in the first few volumes, but gets more realistic later on. One thing I like about Kirkman, the writer, is that he's never afraid to kill off his chars, even if people love them. People will die left and right with little buildup, making the world more depressing.

    Awesome. This is one of my favorite comics and just won the Eisner Award for best series. I might have to go back and read the original issues since the story is so far along.

    I cannot wait for this show. I have been waiting for it for months now, almost a year even.

    This is going to be great. I just got caught up with the comic, and it's easily become one of my all time favorites. I am going to be glued to the TV while this is on.

    I read the entire series over the course of a couple days. I cannot wait for this.

    If it isn't strictly zombies I may watch, I just can't do this post-apocalyptic zombies all over the place eating brains stuff.

    Yes, but she arrives much later.

    I am beyond stoked for this tv series, I may have to pick up a hardbound edition of the comic series as well. It seems right up my ally.

    Boy, AMC certainly is getting bold. This seems like a rather unlikely -- and expensive -- choice of a next series. If it's NOT all zombies, I'll give it a shot.

    I think you'll be surprised. There's certainly pleanty of zombie stuff, if only to appease those who enjoy that genre, but some of the more disturbing moments are carried out by regular people. The whole premise is about how a huge event can change people. If you've ever seen The Road, you could easily make some comparisons to this story. Supposedly, the author never read/watched The Road in order to avoid any similarities, but you could still find a couple parallels.
