This book is a must for all fans of the series. It's like the bonus material on a DVD but in book form.

The Walking Dead Chronicles: The Official Companion Book is the only authorized, behind-the-scenes guide to Season One of the white-hot new AMC television series, The Walking Dead, which tells the story of a sheriff’s deputy leading a band of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead.

Focusing on the making of the first season of the Golden Globe–nominated TV show, as well as the creation of the New York Times bestselling comic book on which the series is based, The Walking Dead Chronicles is lav­ishly illustrated with never-before-seen unit photography, storyboards, set designs, makeup and visual effects shots, and page-to-screen comparisons of the comic and TV show. Featuring new interviews with series creator Robert Kirkman and executive producer Frank Darabont, as well as the cast and crew, the book also includes sidebars that serve as a detailed episode guide, reproducing excerpts from early drafts and final scripts, and revealing new direc­tions for the second season and beyond.

Romero turned down The Walking Dead

Posted: October 17, 2011, 09:13:14

Zap2it had a chat with Romero where we told them he turned down working on an episode of The Walking Dead and hasn't even seen any of the episodes.


George Romero, who pretty much put movie zombies on the map, says he doesn't really get the hype about the super-trendy creatures. And, in fact, he's never watched one episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead," although he's hosting the network's "FearFest" which kicks off Sunday, Oct. 16, with the show's season 2 premiere.

"I haven't seen any of the episodes," Romero tells Zap2it.

And not only has he not watched the show, he tells us he turned down an offer to work on an episode.

"Frank [Darabont] and [Greg] Nicotero were calling me and asking me to do one of these," he says. "I don't have any desire to do one because it's not -- my zombies live in sort of my universe and they're political and they're different from whatever that is."

He continues: "I'm not trying to capitalize on a trend. When I want to write about something, I try to use zombies to do it because it's easier than trying to write a piece about citizen journalism. It's easier to put zombies in it and make fun of it."

Is he just sick of zombies in general?

"I'm not really a fan of the fact that they've become as popular as they've become because I used to think that I had them in my pocket somewhere," says Romero. "And now they're sort of all over the place and I'm not thrilled."

Judging from the success of The Walking Dead and the not so big success of Romero's last Zombie movie maybe it was a mistake to not work on The Walking Dead? What do you think? Comment on facebook.
