The Walking Dead Delivers Three More Ominous Finale Posters

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadSeason four of AMC’s hit zombie-apocalypse drama The Walking Dead wraps up tomorrow after 16 surprisingly good installments. This year, especially the second half of the season, the episodes have been consistent and strong, especially considering that has been a huge issue, and right now The Walking Dead is as good as it has ever been. Building up to the finale, the network has released a series of ominous character posters, and they’re back with three more that still seem to indicate gloom and doom on the horizon, if and when the survivors reach the mysterious Terminus.

After the events at the prison that finished up the first half of the season, the group of survivors was forced to split up and find their own way through the walker infested Georgia wilderness. Like the episodes, these posters check in with one splinter at a time, and first up we have Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman). Wounded, worried about his sister, and playing guardian to two young girls and a newborn, he’s had some stuff to deal with. And then factor in the brutal, heart-breaking situation that he and Carol (Melissa McBride) had to deal with in “The Grove” a few weeks ago, and he’s carrying an almost unbearable emotional weight with him as he approaches Terminus, which may or may not provide a safe haven.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: The Grove

fb share tweet share

Well, that was one hell of a bummer of an episode, even for a show a notoriously bleak as The Walking Dead. If you thought Andrea’s death at the end of season three stung, Rick shooting zombie Sophia in the head in season two, or the debacle at the prison a few weeks ago were bad, you’re in for a hard slap of reality with tonight’s episode, “The Grove.” It’s like the writers went out of their way to say fuck you, here’s how bad shit can really get. So sit back, strap in, and get ready to get ready to have your day ruined a little bit.

The Walking DeadSince The Walking Dead returned from its mid-season break, with the group of survivors in ruins, the show has taken to telling smaller, more contained stories. “The Grove” sticks with this program, and follows the splinter that includes Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman), Carol (Melissa McBride), and the kids Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino), Miki (Kyla Kenedy), and baby Judith, who as we learned a couple weeks ago, is still alive.

Afterlife With Archie Comic May Bring Riverdale’s Zombies To TV Or Film

I used to read a lot of Archie series when I was younger, and there seemed to be a million or so, including the digests, each with their own different names. Archie Comics, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, has spent the last five years or so taking the Riverdale gang to places they’ve never been before, and giving the entire brand a modern facelift. The latest and greatest evolution came late last year with the quasi-horror comic Afterlife With Archie, in which zombies enter the storyline, something usually reserved for dating and high school life. And there’s a decent chance you’ll be able to see this series’ shambling characters come to life as a TV series or a feature film. It might be the handful of random pills I swallowed an hour ago, but this sounds like the greatest thing that could ever happen to TV or cinema.

Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa — who is a lifelong Archie fan as well as being a Marvel writer, a playwright and a screenwriter — was appointed the comic company’s first ever chief creative officer, as co-CEO Jon Goldwater wants to take the franchise into places it’s never gone before. There was talk last summer of an Archie movie in the works, and both Goldwater and Aguirre-Sacasa shined a little more light on that in a recenter interview with Comic Book Resources, which is well worth a full read.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Still

fb share tweet share

Last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “Claimed,” was all about looking towards the future. We were introduced to a trio of new characters—Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene—who will continue shape the show for the foreseeable future and beyond. At the same time, we learned that they were on a mission to get to Washington DC, and could possibly hold the key to ending the walker apocalypse once and for all. “Still,” tonight’s installment of the hit zombie drama, however, looks into the past, specifically into the earlier life of fan-favorite Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus).

Zombeavers Stills Give You Something To Bite Down On

zombeaversIf you’ve gotten completely sick of films and TV shows about zombies, it’s an understandable feeling. The zeitgeist has really taken to the undead and brainless creatures in a way that…OH WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? Oh, never mind. It’s just a mostly harmless beaver smiling at me. So as I was saying, the pop culture stratosphere is completely…HOLY SHIT, THAT BEAVER IS COVERED IN BLOOD AND CURRENTLY BITING ME! This must be one of those Zombeavers we’ve been hearing about so much recently. I’ll be sure and find this little guy a good home as soon as…I’M BLEEDING OUT!

Zombeavers director Jordan Rubin met up with Entertainment Weekly to reveal a few set photos to the world, and to give some insight as to how he and co-screenwriters Al and Jon Kaplan arrived at such a silly premise. (Albeit one that I still would never want to find myself in the middle of.) I don’t do well with animals whose tails pack more of a punch than my own fists. Plus, I’m not big on dying outdoors.

Walking Dead Images Introduce Eugene And Show Michonne And Carl At Ease

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadAt the very end of last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Inmates,” the hit zombie drama gave us our first onscreen look at some highly-anticipated new characters. Fans of Robert Kirkman’s comics have been waiting for the arrival of Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), and Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt) since we first heard they were on their way. In anticipation of tomorrow’s episode, “Claimed,” AMC has released some new photos. The other day we got our first good look at Rosita, and these pics give us a closer look at McDermitt’s Eugene, as well as some other, more familiar folks.

“Inmates” doesn’t do much aside from show us the new additions, but this week promises to give us a proper introduction. Eugene may have gross, greasy mullet, but that rough exterior hides something much deeper and more cunning. I won’t go into the details from the comics, but, if the show sticks close to the source material, he should be an interesting character to watch. In any way, all three will have a huge impact on the narrative moving forward.
