Andrew Lincoln talks about King writing for The Walking Dead. Hear more here.

And I can’t resist post this photo. It’s of a truck driving around San Diego during Comic-Con last week and it’s about the coolest thing I have ever seen. AMC is really doing a good jobb promoting the new season of The Walking Dead don't you agree?

The sad thing about The Walking Dead though is that AMC's senior vice president of original programming Joel Stillerman has officially confirm that Darabont is no longer the man in charge of the series and that "The Shield" alum Glen Mazzara would be taking over.

Stillerman praised Darabont's work, saying, "His fingerprints are all over the adaptation of Robert Kirkman's source material." But he couldn't clarify exactly why Darabont is out of the top job - I don't have much to add to the circumstances of it," he said - what (if anything) his role might be going forward, why the timing was so strange (days earlier, Darabont had been an enthusiastic part of the show's panel at Comic-Con), or any of the rest of it.
