Comic fans know all about this great series from Robert Kirkman.  Now, the rest of the world can experience the story when it is adapted for television.

Here is the official description.

Police officer Rick Grimes wakes from a coma to find the world ravaged by a zombie apocalypse. Nearby, a small group struggles to stay alive as 'the dead' stalk them. Can Rick and the group survive the zombies and each other in this horrific new reality? The Walking Dead is a survival adventure series from the director of The Shawshank Redemption and the producer of The Terminator.

I think this has the possibility to be the next big critical hit at next year's Emmies and hope it isn't hurt by the subject matter (like BSG and Buffy were).

The Trailer for the show is below:

The first episode airs this Halloween at 10pm EST.  Grab your candy, dim the lights and see if you can figure who the title really refers to.  You can even pledge to watch the show here.

If you are interested in the comic, we did the first volume as part of our Comics Experience Book Club (along with Mr. Kirkman, himself).  A description of the event can be found here.

If you want to buy the books, they are available in trade (softcover), hardcover, and omnibus sizes.  I linked the 13 available trades (since they are the cheapest) below.
