The new Walking Dead paperback is out NOW, a week and a half before it should be. Act on this news immediately.
i need to get my act together and read the previous two, shit was just getting serious
the issues in collection 8 really put the series back on the interesting/exciting path again
i started buying the hardcover editions. so this is not good news.
good news though, is that Kirkman has hired himself an editor, so it should get back onto a regular schedule.

but this is too much
Dare I risk losing any shred of respect the people in my office may have had for me?
but then i also had a copy of World War Z in my desk for about eight months...
world war z? i liked it. that is all.
did you get it in FP? i'm hoping everywhere has it, as all i can check today is Mega City.
book ten has a release date as well according to wikipedia, august 29th - "the road ahead" :D
I got it in FP for the inflated price of £10.99. Could be in Mega City too though I suppose.
Although I'm only to the end of the hardcover book 3 - so I make that book 6. The releases are so staggered I'm trying to savour it, especially now I no longer have The Wire in my life.
I told people at work that I bought my girlfriend a hardcover comic about zombies for Christmas and they think I go out with a goth now
Anyone seen the interview with Max Brooks in the latest edition of Vice? It's dead good. I didn't realise that he's been doing seminars on zombie defence to auidences of up to a thousand! That's fantastic.
Also, the producer of Babylon 5 is directing the film apparently. And the graphic novel is on the way too.
The graphic novel is of the recorded cases in The Zombie Survival Guide, because World War Z had already been optioned and so producing a graphic novel would be a legal no-no. Should still be cool though.
I think Brooks has been doing those seminars since TZSG. Wish he'd do some over here!
He was saying in the interview about he was really nervous before the first one about how it'd be, but from the start it was 100% serious questions. That's fantastic, it'd be horrible if it was just full of people there for laughs. The forthcoming undead apolcalypse is no laughing matter, we need to be prepared.
Yeah I got that wrong about the grpahic novel, my mistake.
Also, I can't spell audiences it seems.
lovely nuggets of information. incredible.
the zombie survival guide is funnn, i love the blank parts at the back for writing outbreak reports etc.
what is everybody's plan for when the dead rise?
i think i would head for the co-op round the corner.
too many people / buildings / unending town sprawl.
however i did realise recently that the area of east london around is surrounded by canals on all three sides. hello safe haven in the middle of infested london!
but it also has easy access to the river thames!
J M Straczynski, who created and wrote most of Babylon 5, has written the script for the film. marc forster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Forster) is signed on to direct currently.
although apparently Brooks himself isn't involved at all.
My plan when the dead rise? Run. Like. Hell. Probably to Greenland, so I'll have the cold on my side + lack of other people. Of course there are gaping holes in my plan, but basically it involves leaving east London quick-smart
you've read world war z, THINK ABOUT ICELAND!
but where else am I going to go?! Maybe rent a submarine or something. and avoid Russia in general.
an old cold war radar station and air force base that b52's used as a holding point in case they needed to nuke russia
anyway, it's still there and it's so isolated that it has enough supplies and facilities to be more or less self-sufficient and staff by soldiers, medical staff, engineers and all that.
it'd definitely be humanities last bastion following any kind of apocalyptic pandemic
here's another good reason to try and stick it out in Greenland

and i will definitely pick this up.
i totally have book 9. going to read it after dinner :D
but no spoilers when your done
it's pretty bleak (kirkman is SO horrible to his characters) but it gets pretty much straight to work on setting up a new story arc that looks vvvvvvvvvvv promising indeed.
the prison arc kind of ran itself into a bit of a dead end
the other day which are the only ones I have. I really need to buy 7-9 as I'd nearly forgotten how enjoyable it is.
