“Justified, Bates Motel, The Walking Dead. The best show of the year is The Americans. I don’t watch Mad Men. I think it’s basically soap opera, and if I want soap opera, I watch Revenge. That show is crazy, but they have great clothes.”
– Novelist Stephen King reveals what he’s watching (and what he prefers not to watch) on television these days.
Official Press Release
The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman, his Skybound imprint at Image Comics, andTheWalkingDead.com are thrilled to share that you can vote for The Walking Dead Michonne and Her Pet Zombies Mini Figures as Best Media Tie-In at the Designer Toy Awards. You can vote once a day at the Designer Toy Awards to show your love for Rick Grimes and company, especially our favorite katana-wielding badass, Michonne. Robert Kirkman states, “We’re very proud of the Michonne and pets figures we created in collaboration with October Toys, and it’s great to see them getting this recognition.” Michonne and her Pet Zombies were sculpted by George Gaspar of October Toys and created exclusively for Skybound last fall. Only a limited quantity are still available at TheWalkingDead.com . Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series and graphic novels are the bestselling graphic novels since 2011.
The name Merle Dixon brings up some strong feelings for any “Walking Dead” fan. Played by Michael Rooker, Merle is the older and for more crude brother of fan favorite Daryl Dixon. College Times had the opportunity to speak with Rooker before his visit about being Merle, playing a zombie and his time on the show.
College Times: How are you going to spend your time at Comicon?
Michael Rooker:I am going to do nothing. Absolutely nothing. Nah, I am going to have a lot of fun, meet a lot of fans. Comicons are basically meet and greets, signing autographs and taking photos. You get to meet the grassroots fan base. It’s a lot of fun. You get to meet people you normally wouldn’t, plus they are fans of yours.
