Hey gang! Brian here! You may have noticed a new name on the site this week. Yes, that’s right, I have hired a replacement for Lizzy. He has some big shoes to fill. Literally—Lizzy has GIANT feet (just kidding Lizzy!). Johnny is a Cavs fan but I’m trying really hard not to hold that against him, and he pretends like it doesn’t hurt every time I make fun of LeBron, but I can see his soul die a little bit every time I do and it’s glorious. He’s on Twitter if you want to follow him! And remember, if you see any typos or errors on the site or Twitter/Facebook, it’s probably Johnny’s fault. Welcome, Johnny! Take it away!
This was definitely the week of the…wait for it…TEASER.
Due to all the Comic-Con mayhem this is technically the last week and A HALF of TWD news. So, you’re welcome.
Here’s what went down:
WE NOW HAVE A FULL LENGTH TRAILER FOR SEASON 6 OF THE WALKING DEAD! (premiering October 12th at 9PM)! Just when you thought trees were safe, there are now walkers ATTACHED to them. This might be the most intense season yet.
Norman Reedus and other cast members got to FINALLY meet Lucille. Don’t know who Lucille is? Great, enjoy these next few months of not having an irrational fear of baseball bats.
The cover of TWD Issue #147 was revealed! Seems like Carl and Lydia are hitting the road again. What do you think their playlist should be? (other than The Grateful Dead).
Can’t stop watching the trailer we mentioned earlier? Well, they say if you look at something a lot you should take a picture. THANKFULLY, these NEW SEASON 6 CHARACTER POSTERS should do the trick!
The new Fear the Walking Dead poster was unveiled, showing a walker approaching kids playing basketball in the street. It was arguably the scariest basketball moment since Kevin Love got injured in the NBA playoffs against the Celtics (no bias).
Kid Cudi teamed up with Scott Aukerman from Comedy Bang! Bang! to hilariously parody TWD. Let’s be honest with ourselves, supply runs RARELY go well.
Walkers haven’t always been disgusting and frightening, sometimes they were just frightening! Check out the side-by-side comparison of TWD walkers with FTWD walkers. Whom would YOU rather swipe right on?
Michonne graced the cover of the 13th issue of Walking Dead: The Official Magazine! Check the link to see character bios and get the scoop on Season 6!
What’s that? You want another trailer? BOOM, you got it. FEAR THE WALKING DEAD premiered their new full length trailer and it is GLORIOUS. (Side note: LA being taken over by walkers MIGHT help solve our drought problem. Just saying).
Stay tuned to TheWalkingDead.com next week because there’s a WHOLE lot more horrifying excitement coming at you.
Quite a lot of tags down there, but this week had a good amount of events. Since I’m The Walking Dead Encyclopedia (Comic Edition), I was all happy for Issue #147’s cover. Season 6’s trailer had me in awe, and Fear The Walking Dead’s trailer made me all excited! Can’t wait!
Welcome Johnny! 😀
From 1 Fan’s Perspective:
Welcome to The Site, Johnny! Looking forward to what you’ll bring! And Brian’s a good guy… really… honestly… no, for real!!
SDCC… such excitement (although I pined away pathetically about going, I did manage to go to my first comic con here at home & had a lot of fun)!! I loved the Merch Spotlight posts! I was already sold on Michonne & the necklace, but now I’m pretty sure I’ll have to pick up a pack of those PVC figures also! I’m relieved that we were given a date as to when we’ll have the op to purchase some of this loot, as I was all bent out of shape with refreshing pages, eyeballing the Twitter feed, & suffocating in a neglected work pile. Now I can take my plastic out of my pocket & not worry about it possibly getting eaten by the washing machine or dryer.
I have been successfully avoiding quite a bit of Season 6 material, for fear of TMI. It’s not an easy thing to do but it’s gonna have a big payoff, I just know it! I did take in the SDCC Season 6 trailer, which was, of course, awesome! But the prize actually goes to FEAR THE WALKING DEAD for totally surprising me and flipping my skepticism! I can now say “Can’t wait!” The walkers of THE WALKING DEAD win, tho. Nicotero is not slacking off at all!!
Issue 144… all my buddies are digital fiends… needless to say, I ended up purchasing the digital version (and that’s a good thing, since my print was delivered more than a week later… I would’ve been in a padded room by that time). That’s just how crazy it got! No regrets! Kirkman is THE MAN!! Again, if you aren’t reading, you are missing out!!!
Sidenote: That DEADPOOL trailer… OMG, whoa!! I hope someone showed it to Kirkman!
Welcome home johnny and another solid week from everyone at twd.com, i couldnt be happier! Keep killing it like this and i know ill probably survive untill october…probably
Welcome Johnny 🙂 It’s a good time to join, no way could you be held responsible for the deaths in #144. (#150 IS coming though)
Does anyone know what day fear starts? Is it going to be on Sundays?
