Whether you think of Robert Kirkman's comic book series or the AMC TV show when you think of The Walking Dead, there's no denying that the franchise was integral in bringing the living dead and their insatiable appetites into the 21st century, giving the Corpse Club co-hosts a lot to talk about on a new episode of Daily Dead's podcast.
Since the first issue hit shelves in October of 2003 and the first episode premiered on AMC on Halloween night of 2010, The Walking Dead has been an influential force in the horror genre, showing time and time again that the human survivors in the post-apocalypse can be just as deadly and cold-blooded as the ravenous living dead. With the ninth season of The Walking Dead TV series nearing its conclusion, Corpse Club co-hosts Tamika Jones, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James reflect on nearly one full decade of the AMC series, including its groundbreaking gore, storytelling highs and lows, favorite villains, and most memorable walkers. In this spoiler-filled discussion, the trio also talks about the differences between the TV show and Robert Kirkman's comic book series, the twists and turns of Fear The Walking Dead, and the future of The Walking Dead franchise. So, after you’ve made sure that you haven't been bitten, kick back, relax, and enjoy a new episode of Corpse Club!
