Meet the Walking Food of the Walking Dead



Man, I can’t believe I was actually worried about what I’d cover during the week before SDCC. I always forget that plenty of people jump the gun and release pics and news early, hoping to get in front of the barrage of nerd news, and a little more atteniton. Case in point: This pic of the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead, in character. Live for Films has a great side-by-side comparison of the actors to their comic characters; good enough that I don’t feel I ought to steal it, but just direct you to it over here. I think they look pretty good, but I’m woefully behind on my Walking Dead comic reading, so there’s zero need to pay attention to what I say. As per usual.
