Today in Things We Can’t Not Post, artist Ali Graham is currently running a Tumblr where he takes a Beyonce lyric and interprets it in the context of a zombie apocalypse where the singer is a scourge of the undead hordes.
We approve, and so, I think, would Michonne, Buffy, Alice, Ellie, Riley, and Clementine.
The most recent episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead (recap here!) introduced several new characters. Not ones invented for the show, but transplants from Robert Kirkman’s comic book. It also touched heavily on a topic we made fun of not too long ago with The Walking Dead memes. We’re talking of course about Beth’s diary. Hear what one of the new recruits and the actress who plays Beth had to say about their recent apocalypse activities.
Everyone’s favorite ginger (right? If not, he should be) Conan O’Brien is pretty hilarious, so it should come as no surprise that when he did a cold open for an episode featuring the cast of The Walking Dead, it was hilarious. Also, he makes a pretty great zombie.
I stopped watching The Walking Dead at the end of season three, but I’m still invested in Glenn not biting the dust, because he’s an adorable butterfly and I love him. Unfortunately, things don’t look so great for him in this series of promo pics put out by Entertainment Weekly. Not that that’s particularly surprising. Back when I was watching everything on The Walking Dead was death and pain and death. Now, from what I know, it’s death and pain and dead and potentially dead babies.
AMC’s The Walking Dead returns with the second half of Season 4 on February 9. But how’s Michonne doing these days after, well, you know? Here what Danai Gurira has to offer up about the second half of the season.
The Last of Us‘ first story DLC, “Left Behind,” is doing something that the mainstream video games industry (not to mention a lot of science fiction and fantasy storytelling intended for the mainstream) is still vary wary of: telling a story about teenage girls. That is, one that isn’t purposefully exaggerated, contains elements of parody, or intends the main character to at least partially be a focal point for the male gaze. The zombie game genre has seen fast zombies, slow zombies, zombies on vacation, has let us kill them as a team, with crazily improvised weapons, and in space. But it’s the presence of a calmly and realistically girl that really sets The Last of Us and The Walking Dead apart.
