To be fair, the series started before the Zombie bust of '06, when it officially became passe.

...

If anyone wants to start digging into this series from the beginning, there will be a huge paperback collection coming out sometime this year that collects about the first fifty issues. Good place to start for cheap.

I love The Walking Dead and although all of my friends say that Zombies are played out, I still have a soft spot in my heart for the flesh eaters

Sounds like you need to trade up.

Yeah, it's sad but I kind of saw it coming with the nod to NotLD and all.  Just finished Issue 59.

Interesting news.  From Variety:

AMC is venturing into zombie-drama territory with multi-hyphenate Frank Darabont.

Cabler is close to finalizing one of the richest development deals ever with Darabont to write and direct a series adaptation of the Image Comics graphic novel series "The Walking Dead," penned by Robert Kirkman. Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Motion Pictures and David Alpert of Circle of Confusion are also on board to exec produce.

Project is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live. Numerous editions of the "Walking Dead" graphic novels have been published since 2003.

Joel Stillerman, AMC's senior veep of programming, production and original content, said the project appealed to the cabler because of "the quality of the storytelling" in Kirkman's work. The series will stay faithful to the tone of the original novels, he said.

"This is not about zombies popping out of closets," Stillerman said. "This is a story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to survive under these circumstances. The world (in 'Walking Dead') is portrayed in a smart, sophisticated way."

Stillerman noted that the cabler's annual "Fear Fest" movie showcase around Halloween is one of AMC's most popular programming events of the year.

"We've got an audience that loves this kind of material," he said.

Darabont and Hurd pitched the project to AMC and several other outlets. There is no studio attached yet. The duo's involvement made the project a must-have for the cabler, Stillerman said.

"These are two world-class filmmakers who are also brilliant storytellers with experience in the fantasy genre," he said.

At least it's a series, rather than an abridged, overstuffed movie.

I know it's me being a brat, but I wish this were in development with a premium channel.

I know where you're coming from, but AMC have done Mad Men and Breaking Bad recently. Both really good, mature series.
