AMC Developing ‘Walking Dead’ Companion Series!

the-walking-dead-11

Hello kids!  Chubtoad here with exciting news!

AMC and Robert Kirkman have agreed with fans that there can never be enough Walking Dead and have started developing a new spin off series!  AMC announced the project Monday stating that the comics creator Robert Kirkman along with executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert will be the driving force behind this  new series targeted to air in 2015.

This will be AMC’s third foray into the world of the Walking Dead as a companion to the original from AMC studios and the talk show ‘Talking Dead’ with Nerdist host Chris Hardwick.  “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” AMC president and GM Charlie Collier said. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”

“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” Kirkman said. “The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

The world of the walking dead is a huge one and to have other stories with brand new characters is exciting!  In the original series we have met many interesting people along the way.  It might be possible that we see some of those characters again.  This will be Kirkman’s latest small-screen project in development, joining AMC’s adaptation of his newest comic, Thief of Thieves, and Clone, which is set up at Universal Television.

I wonder what they are going to name this thing?

Season four of The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Oct. 13.

A preview look at New 52 Detective Comics #1

Chubtoad here…

I am excited!  This week releases the all new Detective Comics from DCU’s new 52!

USA Today is the latest recipient of a DC New 52 Preview. He tells Brian Truitt that “his Detective Comics will emphasize the “detective” part, with high-tech, CSI-style mysteries to solve.”

“It allows me to do some edgier stories,” he says. “We’re concentrating on serial killers and real bad guys in Gotham City— the scum of the earth — so I get to have a really good film-noir vibe going on with the character: dark, gritty, intense story lines that wouldn’t have felt right with the more superhero-y Batman comic.”

We hear about the Dollmaker, an all-new villain created by Daniel who turns his victims into hodge-podge trophy dolls that are sold to the highest bidder.

“His goal is to take some of Gotham’s elite and turn them into collectables,” says Daniel, who has surrounded the Dollmaker with a crazy (and crazy-looking) “family” of accomplices that Batman will meet next month in the second Detective Comics issue. One is reminiscent of a human Jack in the Box, another looks like a monkey with cymbals that bangs on people’s heads or cuts them open, and he even has a giant robot.

Marvel teases the return of the Human Torch

Hello true believers!  Chubtoad here!

If you look on page 113 of the Marvel Previews for October releases you will see three blacked out poster offerings marked “Classified”.  One is a Fantastic Four poster by Joe Quesada.  Today Marvel releases the above image which this nerd guesses is that image.  I will also take a stab in the dark and say this is most likely the cover to ‘Fantastic Four’ issue #600.

Flame on!
