NEW YORK, NY – September 24, 2010 – During New York Comic Con, AMC will premiere the first full scenes from the network’s highly anticipated series, “The Walking Dead.” In addition to the exclusive preview, the stars and producers of the drama, based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman, will be present for a panel scheduled for Sunday, October 10 at 2:15pm in the IGN Theater. The event will include series stars Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually), Jon Bernthal (“The Pacific”), Sarah Wayne Callies (“Prison Break”), Laurie Holden (The Mist), and Steven Yeun (“The Big Bang Theory”). Joining the cast are writer, director, executive producer and three-time Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and executive producers, Robert Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon). “The Walking Dead” will premiere on Halloween at 10pm EST on AMC.

The panel will be followed by a Q&A session with attendees.

About “The Walking Dead”
“The Walking Dead” tells the story of the weeks and months that follow after a zombie apocalypse.  County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Lincoln) travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty.  As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.

You know, a year has past and I still don't care about The Walking Dead. Maybe I'm way over zombies unless I am able to kill them (and even then, I feel pretty jaded about it), but by the time The Walking Dead was announced, I feel like the genre was at the end of the fad.

Has anyone gotten into the series? Would you like to see more anime with zombies? Personally, I've been digging High School of the Dead (Anime; 12 episodes) but as every anime seems to go, it turned into a harem anime pretty quickly. Can't say much for the manga.
