It’s interesting that this comes up today because I was just writing an article (out tomorrow) that sort of touches on this. While we wait for Season 3 of AMC’s “The Walking Dead“ to return in 2013, comic creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman is talking about something we’ll never see on the show, and that’s the beginning of the outbreak. That whole “zombies taking over the world” part that Rick missed when he was in a coma.
Kirkman told TV Guide, “I don’t find that to be interesting at all. In zombie fiction, you see the outbreak, you see the first days and the craziness in almost every other story told in this realm. I’m very proud of the fact that, for the most part, The Walking Dead has skipped over that part.”
What’s a close approximation of what such a thing may have looked like in the “Walking Dead” universe? ““Go watch Zach Snyder’s ‘Dawn of the Dead’ movie to see the early days of this, or ‘Shaun of the Dead’ does it really well.” Given the grim tone of the show, I’m guessing it’s closer to the former film.
I didn’t miss seeing this. Are you happy that they chose to skip this step?
