Spoilers After The Break: The Walking Dead: The Alien

the-walking-dead-the-alien-brian-k-vaughan-marcos-martin-one-shot

Have you heard of Panel Syndicate?  I’m thinking there is a good chance you haven’t.  Panel Syndicate is the brainchild of Marcos Martin whose name you may not recognize but he has illustrated a lot of super hero funny books over the years including Batman and Spider-Man.  His usual partner in crime is one of our favorite writers here at Gabbing Geek, Brian K. Vaughan.  Vaughan’s credits are vast but notably include Y: The Last Man, Saga and of course working on Ryan favorite, Lost.

The concept behind Panel Syndicate is simple.  These talented folks create comics for free and post them on the site for anyone to download.  The “catch” is, you pay what you want for it.  Could be nothing, or $5 or $500.  Whatever you want to contribute.

One of the posted series caught the eye of Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman who is also one of the biggest wigs over at Image Comics.  He wanted to do a print version of the Panel Syndicate series The Private Eye.  Vaughan and Martin agreed to a print version if Kirkman allowed them to write a story in the Walking Dead universe.  Kirman agreed, and The Walking Dead: The Alien was born.  More on this one-shot, complete with spoilers, after the break.

Spoilers After The Break: The Walking Dead #153 Review

Is it any coincidence that three days after Negan makes his long awaited debut on The Walking Dead TV show that he gets his groove back in The Walking Dead #153?  Possibly.  But knowing how meticulous Robert Kirkman is with his fingers in so many pies, I doubt it.  Some thoughts and spoilers about this issue after the break.

He’s here.

So my least favorite event from the entire run of The Walking Dead comic finally made its way to the small screen with the season finale of season six of the show.  Some comments, speculation and of course spoilers for the show and the comic after the break.

The Punisher Problem

The second season of Daredevil dropped today.  I’m not one for binge watching, personally, so I have no idea how long it will take me to watch the show, but as of this typing I’ve watched the first episode and liked what I saw.

But the promised appearance of the Punisher had me reflecting that, no matter how popular a character he is, he is a weird anomaly in the Marvel pantheon of a character with little discernible personality and few memorable appearances.

Awesome Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 Poster

amc-fear-the-walking-dead-key-art-1

I was a little underwhelmed with the first season of Fear The Walking Dead.  Ryan seemed to like it a lot more than I did, and I think a big difference between us is that Ryan doesn’t watch The Walking Dead.  Besides the fact that that is a sign he is clinically insane, it gives me a much different perspective.  I just found the best of Fear would only be a mediocre episode of TWD.

That’s not to say I’m not looking forward to season 2, and you know I’ll be watching.  Exactly how much time are they going to spend on that yacht anyway?  And where are they going?  An interview with showrunner Dave Erickson by Variety gives some insight if you are interested.  It is very, very light on potential spoilers.

“I’m all smiles now, but I’m about to bring all types of hell down on Rick and company.”

I think they call this “counter programming”.  With Sunday being Valentine’s Day, the most invented romantic day of the year, the big entertainment events this weekend are the debut of the R-rated Deadpool movie and the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead, for which you can watch the first 4 minutes of after the cut.

Fear The Walking Dead Season Two Premiere Date Announced

I’m on a boat!

It’s the zombie apocalypse and you’re on a boat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  You should be safe enough, zombies can’t swim right?  Looks like season two of Fear The Walking Dead is going to be pretty boring.  Unless this guy shows up:

Seriously though, tune in to AMC on Sunday April 10th for the continuing adventures of our West Coast survivors.  This time around, expect 15 episodes (up from 6 and split over Spring and “later in 2016”) and installments of Talking Dead after all episodes.
