the great leveler

In terms of equal opportunities, the undead are about as unprejudiced as you can get. Age, disability, gender, race, religion, sexuality, size, social status, wealth – these things are all irrelevant to a walker with a hankering for fresh brains. The living, sadly, often feel otherwise, and prejudice and discrimination still abound in modern society. But how do these carry over to the fictional world of our favorite comic book and TV series? Is there room for such things when survival is the most important thing? This issue, we take a look at one section of that, examining the representation of the LGBTQ community in the series, asking whether the zombie apocalypse is really the greatest leveler of them all. Actor Ross Marquand also joins us to talk about Aaron, one…

pieces of eight

Season eight of AMC’s The Walking Dead explodes onto TV screens on October 22 (US) and 23 (UK), and it’s going to turn fans upside down, inside out, and every which way but loose, according to several of the show’s leading lights. In an exclusive interview with TWDM, co-executive producer and regular director Greg Nicotero revealed how The Walking Dead’s eighth year – which kicks off with the Nicotero-directed 100th episode, a monumental milestone for any show – would be very different from anything we have seen so far. “We constantly want to redefine the show,” Nicotero explained. “We have an obligation to the fans not to deliver the same thing over and over again. I can be very confident in saying the theme and tone of this season is quite different…

talking points

It’s official – AMC’s The Walking Dead isn’t just one of the most watched TV shows in the world. It’s one of the most talked about, too. Indeed, it’s the most talked about according to Nielsen’s Social Contact Ratings for the 2016-17 TV season. Over the course of its seventh season, the show generated more than 2 million interactions per episode on Twitter and Facebook. That is a lot of tweeting and Facebook posts. It convincingly beat second-placed Empire (with 860,000 mentions per episode), and The Bachelor taking the third placed spot (with 453,000). To gather the data the team at Nielsen scoured social media for TV show-related activity three hours before and three hours after shows aired (as well as during). We always knew The Walking Dead had the most engaged fans…

may the force be with you

If you weren’t able to make this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and you are prone to the occasional fit of jealous rage, then we suggest you don’t read on. Why? Because, as it has become custom, our favorite multi-platform entertainment company, Skybound, unleashed some tantalizing new The Walking Dead goodies at this year’s convention – some of which were exclusive to the 2017 con. With only 1,000 copies in existence, the most sought-after offering was undoubtedly the exclusive The Walking Dead – Shiva Force Action Figure Set. Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s comic book, this, ahem, roar-some 1980s-themed collection included five-inch figures of Rick, Michonne, Ezekiel and – in her action figure debut – Shiva. As mentioned above, these amazing gift sets (which were priced at $100 and came in a regular color version…

Are you a Negan fan? Then have we a treat for you. The ever-brilliant Image Comics is releasing the character’s backstory in a gorgeous hardcover edition this October (October 4 in comic book retailers, October 10 in other stores). Retailing at $19.99 and titled Here’s Negan! (in what’s surely an ode to another charming psychopath from pop culture), the tome collects in its entirety the 16 individual chapters that were serialized between April 27, 2016 onwards. Totaling 72 pages, all in gorgeous black and white, with the exception of Charlie Adlard and Dave Stewart’s superb cover, the book reveals who Negan was before the apocalypse and how he first met Lucille. The answer may surprise you. In other comic news, issue 171 of The Walking Dead is out in early September, introducing…
