The new Walking Dead AMC TV series premieres on Halloween, October 31. As Halloween approaches, there are some great new videos going around for us to watch in anticipation.

AMC just put out a new “behind the scenes” look at the show:

And one of the most celebrated fan-made opening titles is going around. We love the use of the original art from the books.

For older bonus viewing, check out the official trailer for the series:

Also, here’s a video that gives some background on “Zombie School”, where the directors of the show trained their hordes of zombies extras.

If you haven’t read the books yet, I definitely recommend them. Although I have high hopes for this TV series, the books are a character-driven glimpse into a bleak human/zombie future, masterfully told in comic art. But if you love zombies and comics, you probably already know what I’m talking about.

the Waking Dead zombie TV series

As a fan of the post-apocalyptic zombie comic book series, The Walking Dead, I’m psyched for the new AMC TV series based on the books! The show premieres this October.

Among the the latest Walking Dead news, the show’s zombie makeup mastermind, Greg Nicotero, gave an interview on AMC’s blog last week that reveals some of the details of his work. I’m happy to see he draws primarily on the fresh zombie art from the comic books for visual style. Here’s a preview of some of his work:
