"My favorite "exclusive" from this year's Comic-Con was a beautiful painting by legendary artist Drew Struzan, featuring a horde of zombies from THE WALKING DEAD. Frank Darabont is adapting the apocalyptic Image Comics book created by Robert Kirkman, and man, it looks really, really great.
As I was admiring Struzan's work of art, I wondered what the opening titles to this terrifying new television show might look like... so I animated a spec title sequence using artwork ripped from the pages of the comic, originally illustrated by Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore.
Just so there's no confusion, I'm not affiliated with the production in any way -- I'm simply a huge fan of both Frank Darabont and Robert Kirkman, and this is my attempt at creating a cinematic introduction to one of the all time great "continuing stories of survival horror."
Not sure if it belongs in this thread or the Youtube thread, it's awesome enough for both though. Looking forward to the show.
Anyone watch the second episode of The Event? What'd you think? I haven't seen it yet but I'm going to watch it soon.
I watched it and all I can say is meh. It was better than the premier and I'm still a little intrigued on how they resolve some things, but I've kind of got it on a short leash at this point. The characters seem mostly one dimensional too (so far), which is something that I think Lost did significantly better in the early episodes (not sure, its been awhile).
Lone Star was AWWWWWWWWFUL from the first episode! How could anyone like it!
No Ordinary Family didn't record on my stupid DVR. Here is to hoping it's on abc.com tomorrow :(
edit: The thing I like about The Event is that they are answering some questions at least. FlashForward didn't really answer any major ones, and Persons Unknown was the worst.. they didn't answer ANYTHING.
Yeah sure you were, you jerk. On another note, you should really watch Supernatural, because it gets increasingly better each season with a very good serialized plot as it goes on. Plus, it's dark and awesome.
