The creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, sat down with Hyundai (whose cars often appear in The Walking Dead TV Show) to design the “Ultimate Zombie Killing Machine.” It’s a pretty ridiculous concept, but I’m sure they know that. While a Hyundai isn’t my first choice as a zombie apocalypse survival vehicle, The cool additions and the Issue #100 wrap-around paint job is pretty awesome. The Walking Dead is expected to be displaying the concept vehicle during SDCC. I will fight through the crowds to get pictures of this.

The Walking Dead has been, hands down, one of the best dramas on television in the last few years. Fans of the comics have fell in love with the way Robert Kirkman alters the storyline for television, making it impossible to predict further plot developments, but still letting us feel like we have the upper hand over people who have not read the books.
Merle is a character that has never appeared in the comics, throwing a wrench into the way things would have gone. When he exited in Season 1, many (including myself) thought he would eventually return as The Governor, a horrible tyrant in the comics. When AMC revealed that the Governor would be played by British actor David Morrissey, it became unclear what Merle’s role would be in Season 3. All we can safely say is that he will NOT be happy with the crew that left him, and we will get to see how he interacts with his brother and fan favorite, Daryl, played by Boondock Saints’ Norman Reedus.
Let us know below what kind of role you think Merle will play in the upcoming season!
For those of you following The Walking Dead comic book series, the 100th issue is quickly approaching. Robert Kirkman and the folks at Image Comics are going all out, releasing eight different covers for the milestone issue. I’ve already ordered mine from I Want More Comics. With issue one-hundred dropping right before San Diego Comic Con, it’s a good bet that you’ll need to pre-order them or know the right person in order to get your hands on it, or risk paying obscene amounts on eBay.
More interesting than the covers is the storyline. Issue #99 comes out Wednesday. I can’t wait to see what happens!
