Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comic and Executive Producer of the series, explains what it’s like to bring his story to life and witness the end of the world (or at least the end of Atlanta) in the process. The interview can be found at AMC, while inside you’ll find a short bit on what’s different with the live-action adaptations starring Jon Bernthal, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, Chandler Riggs, Linds Edwards, Jim Coleman, Emma Bell, and IronE Singleton.
On what director Frank Darabont is bringing to the tale:
“Everyone is really trying to do good by the comic, and there are scenes that are straight out of it,” Kirkman tells AMC, “I think that fans are just going to be thrilled. But at the same time, [Frank Darabont] is vastly improving the material. And there are things here and there that along the way I should have caught, but didn’t. There’s some amazing stuff he added for Morgan’s character in the Pilot episode that’s just not in the comic. It was back story, but he handles it in a way that just really brings it to the forefront. It’s like, Morgan, that guy is an awesome character!”
