Lifelike The Walking Dead Booth At SDCC, 2011 via Comic Book Movie

The booth is a lifelike recreation of Merle Dixon handcuffed to the roof of the department store and struggling to free himself while hordes of walkers enter the building. In the third picture, you can actually see the walkers trying to force their way onto the roof. All that was left of Merle at the end of the first season was his chopped of hand but i am sure the rest of him will surface again in the second season.

Robert Kirkman Gets Goofy on The Walking Dead Season 2 Set via The HD Room

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is no stranger to the set of AMC’s show based on his comic book. To give you an idea of what the season 2 shoot is like, Kirkman takes a cameraman onto the live sets for a sneak peek and some questionable humor.

As a producer on The Walking Dead, Kirkman is never required to be on camera. You’d think that the title of producer would garner him immunity from being shushed by the filmmakers. Think again.

‘The Walking Dead’ Game’s First Screenshot Looks Promising via MTV News

[A]t Comic-Con in San Diego, TellTale gave us our very first look at the visuals of “The Walking Dead” game, thanks to the gorgeous screenshot.

I can’t say I’ve ever found TellTale’s visuals all that amazing. That’s not to say that they don’t carry a signature aesthetic through most of their titles, it’s just that graphics have not played a huge role in TellTale games. The company has always focused more on the story, which I’m actually fine with, since they are largely a traditional adventure-game developer.

Now that we have that out of the way, let me just say: wow. This in-game screenshot totally took me by surprise.
