The Walking Dead: A Decade of Dead

In honor of the ten year anniversary of Robert Kirkman & Charlie Adlard‘s epic series THE WALKING DEAD (congrats!) the folks at Skybound Entertainment and Hyundai put together a great 22 minute documentary with interviews by some great industry folks and fans of the book. This saw a debut at New York Comic Con last weekend and now it’s up on YouTube for everyone to enjoy!

And among the folks interviewed is yours truly, sporting my favorite purple suit. The producers were great to work with and we had a lot of fun talking about crazy Robert Kirkman stories like this one.

Check out the event invitation for the world premiere of this documentary from NYCC. The eagle-eyed among you will notice it contains zombie versions of everyone in the film, drawn by series artist Charlie Adlard. That’s me down on the bottom right hand side. Considering my secret appearance in the Tony Moore drawn volume one, it’s quite an honor to have been zombified by *both* of THE WALKING DEAD artists!

(sigh) I wish more zombies wore ties, don’t you?

The Formula for The Best Halloween Ever?

San Francisco loves Halloween and so do we. And you’d better believe if we’re doing up Halloween, were going to do it in the highest of styles!

This year the Isotope is teaming up with our pod and videocasting amigos at iFanboy to bring you an All-Hallow’s Eve bash you will never forget. Kicking off with a screening of the most anticipated show of the year, AMC’s The Walking Dead… and thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we’re proud to be bringing you an East Coast feed at 8pm… the first showing anywhere on the West Coast!

From there it’s a one block walk down to our official Halloween bash to get our collective booty shaking on with SF’s sexed-up glitter glamrock gods Triple Cobra at the Rickshaw Stop with DJ Omar of Pop Science fame and the electronic tunes of The Laptop Hero and Phoenix from Wave Not Wave. Dress your best, once again we’re doing our annual $250 costume contest.

The Walking Dead plus Triple Cobra plus iFanboy plus all our favorite Isotope amigos? I think this mad scientist may have unlocked the formula for the best Halloween ever!

Misfits – Halloween

New Walking Dead Story by Kirkman

Heads-up Walking Dead fans!

You know how incredible the comic and the trailer for the TV show are already, and we know Robert Kirkman can write one heck of a great comic book… but can he write prose as well? Oh, you bet he can!

You won’t want to miss an exclusive Walking Dead story by Kirkman, alongside other original stories by zombie fiction legends like Max Brooks and David Wellington, in the new brain-eating anthology The Living Dead 2.

This is the first time Kirkman’s prose writing has ever been published and I wanted to make sure no one was missing out on it. So we got ahold of our friends at Night Shade Books and are giving you an exclusive Isotope sneak peek to wet your appetite!

Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

In celebration, every copy of The Living Dead 2 here at the Isotope comes with an absolutely free copy of another great Night Shade zombie book, Amelia Beamer‘s San Francisco flavored slacker zombie/comedy/romance The Loving Dead. We’re spoiling you with a cornucopia of tasty undead treats!

Folks outside of the Bay Area don’t have to feel left out, you can join in on the celebration and get a free book too, just order from the Night Shade Books website, enter “Isotope” in the Coupon Code box and we’ll get you a free Amelia Beamer hook-up too. Here’s the link:

The Walking Dead Trailer is Alive @ AMC

Break out your shotgun, the Walking Dead trailer is alive @ AMC!

After years of waiting, months of anticipation, and more time than we care to admit of outright obsessing about AMC’s adaptation of one of my favorite comic series of all, Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn, and Tony Moore‘s jaw-dropping zombie series The Walking Dead (did you know that you can find me in a pile of dead bodies in volume one? It’s true!)… the trailer is finally on-line.

And oh, it’s so good!

This show is being made by the fine folks behind two of the best shows to ever grace a tv set, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. And adapted for the small screen by The Shawshank Redemption director. I gotta say, we fans have a lot to get excited about!

Run, don’t walk, to the AMC site right now to get the first peek at what will no doubt be one of our favorite things shambling into 2010. Check out the trailer for yourself:
