And for those that missed it, they also announced a new Walking Dead game last week.  It's an FPS based on the show, revolving around the Dixon brothers making their way toward Atlanta.  Due out sometime next year.

I wonder if the Dixon brothers will speak during the game, and if so, I wonder if Merle will utter racial epithets?

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!  He will be missed if that's true...

Guess that's okay since I won't see the next season until it's on dvd.  Anybody at SDCC wanna take a pic of yourself with Michonne and one of her pets?

They are at least 3-4 seasons ahead of where the show is by now, so nothing is happening to anyone anytime soon. Then again, the two are not mirror images and have diverged significantly up to now, and I expect will continue to do so. So who knows?  ;)

yeah I had to console a few 'Gleggie - Glen-Maggie' fans about that reminding them the tv show is so far behind the comics, they could go another 2 -3 years/seasons before reaching the same point as the 100th issue. I still think after watching the marathon last weekend the reason they stayed so long on the Farm was due to the changes they made, keeping shane around when he died earlier in the comics and by having Sophia getting lost and ending up a walker, she's still alive in the comics as well as Dale. I also think they felt a need to balance the dysfunctional rick-lori-shane triangle (since shane was still around) by developing the Maggie-glenn story; plus throw in Daryl who isn't even IN the comics at all and THREE episodes dealing with Randal before the zombie attack on the farm.

Not sure where you are in the comic series, but Dale died a while ago.  He was killed in the "Hunters" storyline...

Sad news about G, but I knew they were going to get rid of someone big.  Kirkman has said this is "Rick's story," so you know it isn't him.  Andrea's too interesting/useful and Michonne is too big a fan favorite.  That doesn't leave them with too many other big names, so G was a pretty likely choice.  I'm always a little bummed when a good character dies in WD, but it is a Zombie story and they have to keep it high stakes to keep it interesting.

well I've pretty much read through all the trade paperbacks at B&N since I'm outta work so I just read them while I'm there; I must have missed where Dale got killed. So eventhough the comic and tv series are going in slightly different directions, it still follows the same overall path. I'm looking forward to season 3 to see how they portray all the brutality on the show that's in the comics.

A full video walkthru runthru of the Walking Dead Escape that was run at Petco Park during ComicCon has been posted. You run thru multiple obsticle courses while dodging zombies. It's about a half hour.

FINALLY got Comcast hooked up and now have access to AMC!  Does anyone know if they reply Walking Dead episodes?  I missed all of Season 2 and want to get caught up.  I know they had a marathon a few weeks back - anyone know if they have another on the way?  I thought someone said Comcast had this On Demand as well, but I don't see it under TV series.

not really sure, but I would hope AMC at least runs another marathon in Oct before season 3 starts Oct 24. Season 1 dvd is out now and season 2 comes out in early/mid Oct as well.

Season 2 DVD is set to release August 28th.  If AMC sticks to their usual patterns with their other series, they should run a marathon before Season 3 starts back up.

Thanks!  I was hoping to catch up sooner, but I guess I've waited this long...

Along those lines, does anyone know if there will be a combo Season 1 and 2 box set?

no idea on either of those questions, best thing to do is check each retailer's website for specific details.  And rejoice for they have finished the first half finale recently; soon to begin on the second half of season 3.
