Supernatural horror is all the rage these days, and Robert Kirkman’s Cinemax Outcast has a bit of work ahead to distinguish itself from the similar aesthetic of AMC’s Preacher. Thankfully, the latest trailer offers a bit more visual flair amid the scares, as does a brand new poster.

The Walking Dead has borrowed somewhat more liberally from its source material than adaptations like Game of Thrones, though there always remains a possibility of the AMC drama catching up to, even overtaking Robert Kirkman’s work. The live-action Walking Dead has covered roughly 2/3 of the comics over six seasons, so is Kirkman worried about catching up?
The Walking Dead Season 7 has already begun production, kicking off a new round of fan investigation to fill the void of Game of Thrones‘’ latest twist, and giving producers one hell of a challenge to keep Negan’s victim under wraps. That said, creator Robert Kirkman isn’t done defending the controversial cliffhanger, likening it to the best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and wanting fans to hope, not grieve.
Despite some notable diversions and (controversial) attempts to spin its source material in different ways, The Walking Dead has tended more and more to follow its comic inspiration. AMC’s rendition remains significantly behind Robert Kirkman’s canon, but a new one-shot The Alien twist for the Grimes family could open up a vast new world by the time AMC’s Walking Dead catches up.
And lo, The Walking Dead has come to yet another end, closing out Season 6 with at least someone’s “Last Day on Earth,” though it’s safe to say fan reactions to Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s introduction as Negan proved … divisive. Now, showrunner Scott Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman open up on the big twist, possible backlash, and what it means for Season 7.
The dead will surely walk for Robert Kirkman this coming weekend, but may do much worse by the time Cinemax’s Outcast premieres. A new trailer for the exorcism horror series puts the emphasis on evil in town, pulling out every scary camera trick in the book.
Fans of The Walking Dead are gearing up for a long-awaited debut with next week’s finale, but may have missed that Sunday’s blood-spattered “East” dropped a significant hint toward Season 7, potentially setting up comic community “The Kingdom,” and its leader Ezekiel.
The Walking Dead fans know in their bones the Season 6 finale will prove a skull-crusher, what with Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan finally making his anticipated appearance. Fans have driven themselves batty trying to figure out who might suffer the fate in line with Negan’s first comic appearance, but a leaked finale report claims we might not learn at all.
Comic adaptations from write Robert Kirkman have something of a pedigree already, to the point that Cinemax is already doubling down on exorcism thriller Outcast. Not only does the comic drama have an official June premiere, but already second season ordered months before a premiere.
As The Walking Dead increasingly embraces its comic roots, fans both count down to and dread the arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, a larger-than-life villain whose ilk we’ve not yet seen. One at least wonders how the foul-mouthed foe will express himself under AMC standards, and it seems showrunners have filmed alternate takes to accommodate his sinful swearing.
