Triumph of the Walking Dead

Todd Jepperson

A little while ago, we got some information about a collection of essays about Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead both the comic and the screen adaptation. So far, what we have is a list of contributors and a release date. I dug around a bit and found a pre-order page on for those of you who are really anxious.
