‘The Walking Dead’ Creator Discusses Changes From Book to Screen
From top to bottom, everyone knows that AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ is a zombie of a different color compared to its monochromatic book-bound counterpart. Sure, they may keep most of the same characters, and even hit a few of the same signposts, but the hit AMC TV show certainly takes its own liberties with the material. Season 2 made some pretty radical changes to ‘The Walking Dead’ landscape, so what does series creator Robert Kirkman have to say on the road ahead?
‘The Walking Dead’ season 2 will shamble its way onto Blu-Ray and DVD on August 28, well in advance of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 3 premiere on October 14, and fans of the Image Comics series that started it all remain ever curious how closely the new stories will fit in with what they’ve seen on the page. Sure we’ve got Michonne, The Governor and the prison, but will season 3 take drastic departures?
“The Ink is Alive” indeed, as season 2 of ‘The Walking Dead’ saw a number of moments ripped straight from the pages of the book, while a few character deaths sent things spiraling in very different directions. In the below video from the special features of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 2 Blu-Ray, series creator Robert Kirkman discusses some of the bigger diversions and similarities, from page to screen, including the wildest change of all (Spoiler alert!) killing off Dale Horvath long before his comic counterpart!
All ‘Walking Dead’ news is good news as we wait for season 3, so have a look at the video below, and tell us what changes get you talking in the comments below!
