Somewhere in the first half season two of The Walking Dead, I tapped out. This was a zombie show that had a severe lack of zombies popping out to actually kill people. Instead, there were a lot of people whining and bitching at each other, while accomplishing a whole lot of nothing.

I returned for season three, but more importantly, I took the time to read volume one of the comic on which the show is based, where creator Robert Kirkman writes:
“…I want to explore how people deal with extreme situations and how events CHANGE them. […] You guys are going to get to see Rick change and mature to a point that when you look back on [issue #1], you won’t even recognize him. […] This book is more about watching Rick survive than it is about watching zombies pop around the corner and scare you.”
Oops. For someone who claims to love character development, I definitely wasn’t appreciating the show for what it truly was: a “survivalist adventure.”

WHAT IS THIS?

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
