For the Love Of Comics – NEGAN!!!

negan-bw-style_1024x1024For this particular piece I feel as though I should change the name of the column to “For the Love of Negan” because, well, today I want to talk about how much I LOVE Negan’s character in The Walking Dead.

Spoilers: Some spoilers for the comic continuity lay ahead so if you’re not caught up stop and come back later. Also, I am NOT talking about the show here. I don’t watch the show and feel fairly certain – perhaps unjustly but oh well – that the neutered portrayal on AMC’s show is only going to frustrate me (as a rule I have avoided watching the show since its third season but my girlfriend is a huge a fan and I will most likely see some of the episodes this season. Wonderful what we sacrifice for love, eh?).

Thee Comic Column #146: Descent of the Dead

DoDI’ve said it before, I’ll say it again; zombies are overdone. We’ve reached the  saturation point and most of what we see from here on out is recycled in some way or another.

Most.

It takes something really special in the, ahem, Zombie ‘genre’ to get on my good side because at this point not only has almost everything conceivable been done with Zombies: comedies, Romcoms, adventure/sci fi takes, big budget, low budget. Has there been an Elmo meets the Living Dead? Oops. Too soon?

Thee Comic Column #8: Harvest

Since Robert Kirkman became a partner with Image Comics circa 2008 the imprint has taken on a number of mini series that showcase indie talent. Take for example Witch Doctor or The Strange Talent of Luther Strode to name but a couple off the top of my head. With the overwhelming crossover success of Kirkman’s The Walking Dead he has helped the company find and bring to light a lot of great indie stories, and this past weekend I discovered yet another one.
