Image Comics to create their own comic book convention: Image Expo coming in 2012

Posted on 23 November 2011 by Christian

It was announced today that Image comics, the house of Spawn and The Walking Dead, will create their very own comic book convention: Image Expo to launch in February of 2012…the company that shook the comic book industry is at it again.

Back in 1992, 7 comic book creators Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Whilce Portacio left Marvel Comics in an ongoing dispute over creator controls and royalties. Thus Image Comics was created and went on to creat characters such as Spawn, The Maxx, Savage Dragon and The Walking Dead. Image Comics succeeded in shaking up the Comic Book industry and opening it up for independent companies to thrive. Now, Image is at it again. The company just announced that they will be launching their own Comic Book/Creator convention in California to launch in February 2012. With the recent success of The Walking Dead as one of cable television’s highest rated shows and the up coming movie projects for Spawn and Youngblood, image seems to be capitalizing on the growing business of conventions around the country. Will this then limit the big guns (McFarlane, Kirkman) from appearing at other conventions. Will Image now hold their major announcements for their own convention? Does anybody really care?

Read the full press release from Image comics with upcoming guests, convention schedule and where to sign up to attend and exhibit…click the pick below.

The Poster Wall: The Walking Dead Season 2

Posted on 14 September 2011 by TH3 No08

While you wait with baited breath to see if season 2 is going to be a total disaster without Frank Darabont you can check out this cool poster from the upcoming season. It features what looks to be Rick Grimes running with gun in hand toward Hershel’s farm. Here’s some advice to the new show runner, stick with the comic. Everything good about last season was from the comic, it only started to suck when you went rogue. Just keep that in mind and you’ll do fine.
Check out the show when the second season premieres next month on AMC.

Posted on 01 September 2011 by TH3 No08

AMC has announced that The Walking Dead’s season two premiere will be a ninety minute episode just as the series premiere was. I look forward to seeing where the story is headed and whether or not they will stick to the comic or continue to drift away from the great story line set for in the comic series.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 Spoilers!

Posted on 30 June 2011 by Christian

And who should we thank for this major spoiler? The culprit is Frank Darabont. The producer, and sometimes director of the outstanding zombie show for AMC lets a few juicy tidbits slip out. See what he gives away…

While chatting with AMC Frank Darabont talks about what’s in store for the second season of The Walking Dead.

What follows is an excerpt from the interview:

“I don’t know if we’re giving anything away, but something as simple in the comic books as ‘Lori gets pregnant’ winds up being sort of a fantastic complication on screen. In the story we’re telling, it’s just not that simple as it was in the comic book because you have those opportunities to really spin the story out in many different layers,” said Darabont.

The showrunner for AMC’s Golden Globe and Saturn Award winning zombie apocalypse drama also revealed that he jumped in to direct an action scene involving one of the ‘new’ characters. “I jumped in and directed a sequence involving T-Dog trying to elude a zombie in a big snarl of abandoned cars on a deserted highway. It’s a bit of cat-and-mouse in all the dead traffic, and it was terrific fun to shoot.”

Be sure to check out the link below for more information about the next season of AMC’s new hit series, which is set to return later this fall.

Andrew Lincoln Says The Walking Dead Season 2 Will Be “More Emotional”

Posted on 18 March 2011 by Christian

Lincoln recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about season two of The Walking Dead

Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes on the hit AMC show The Walking Dead, chatted a little with Entertainment Weekly about season two.

“I think the second season is going to be even more emotionally charged and dig even deeper into these survivors handling surviving Why them? Where do they go? What do they do now,” he said. “The CDC was their big hope and that’s gone so the future is bleak, but humans also have a strong survival instinct.”

The Walking Dead is set to resume later this year.

How They Trained The Zombies Of The Walking Dead!

Posted on 16 November 2010 by Christian

Check out this interesting video interview with makeup effects supervisor Greg Nicotero to learn how they trained the numerous actors and extras to convincingly play the critically acclaimed shows creepy zombies…

“One thing I learned from George Romero years ago was, if you ever demonstrate something to a group of people, all 50 people will do the exact same thing. We were very specific about not demonstrating zombie walks to them, but we lined up groups of 20 and said, ‘Let’s see what your zombie walk looks like.’ They would shamble across the room, and we would say, ‘Okay, that looks pretty good

The Walking Dead

Posted on 08 November 2010 by Christian

Until recently, most Americans probably knew British actor Andrew Lincoln best as the bloke who wooed Keira Knightley with cue cards in the 2003 romantic comedy Love Actually. Now, though, he’s Rick Grimes, the southern-American, zombie-killing hero of AMC’s new smash hit The Walking Dead. We spoke with Lincoln recently about getting the role, the pressure of following AMC’s other protagonists, and that gross, gut-spilling scene in last night’s episode.

So how did you get the part on The Walking Dead?
Due to the birth of my son happening a lot earlier than anticipated, I had to withdraw from a film I was doing. So I wasn
