THE WALKING DEAD GETS SECOND TV SERIES

AMC has announced that the network is in the initial stages of developing a companion series to its original drama series The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are on board as executive producers, with AMC Studios set to produce. The companion series has a target on-air date of 2015.

“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”

“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” Kirkman said. “The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

Season 4 of The Walking Dead premieres Oct. 13 on AMC.

WHITE’S TIGER: The CW has unveiled the first look at Michael Jai White as Bronze Tiger in Arrow. The character will first appear in the season’s second episode.

As a country we still remember the heroes we lost in Pennsylvania and New York.

God bless the victims and survivors you’re always are never far from our memories.


SUPER NIGHT:

PBS has announced that Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle will now air as a three-hour block on Tuesday, Oct. 15. The film from Emmy Award-winning producer/director Michael Kantor will premiere at 8 p.m. (ET) and include interviews from Stan Lee, Adam West, Lynda Carter,

Jeph Loeb, Geoff Johns, Michael Chabon and Jules Feiffer.

Here’s how the movie is described:

“Narrated and hosted by Liev Schreiber, Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle is the first documentary to examine the dawn of the comic book genre and its powerful legacy, as well as the evolution of the characters who leapt from the pages over the last 75 years and their ongoing worldwide cultural impact. It chronicles how these ‘disposable diversions’ were subject to intense government scrutiny for their influence on American children and how they were created, in large part, by the children of immigrants whose fierce loyalty to a new homeland laid the foundation for a multi-billion-dollar industry that is now an influential part of our national identity.”ALL-NEW MARVEL NOW                      

Marvel Comics’ Marvel NOW publishing initiative will get a second tour with All-New Marvel NOW~ in December.

Avengers #24.NOW will be written by Jonathan Hickman, with art by Esad Ribic and sees Captain America and Iron Man recruiting a new team to stop a runaway planet that is hurtling toward Earth.

Batman #23.2 Riddler

Publisher: DC Comics

Honestly, this whole villains month experiment is probably going to be a bust for DC Comics. It is probably one of the worst ideas they have had since starting the new 52.  However,  if there was one rogue I really wanted Batman-scribe Scott Snyder to tackle it was Riddler.

Deadpool #16

Publisher: Marvel Comics

I am really excited about this new arc. Deadpool, Wolverine, and Captain America decide to take out the Weapons Plus program for good. The first issue was especially good. Watching Deadpool be Deadpool but also hang out with Wolvie and Cap like a regular character, rather than a punchline that they are constantly rolling their eyes at, is always fun. Its part of what made Remender’s Uncanny X-Force so damn good.
