Exhuming "The Walking Dead" With Charlie Adlard
Artist Charlie Adlard discusses his and Robert Kirkman's creative synergy, celebrating "The Walking Dead's" 100th issue, seeing his characters translated to television, the role of gore in the series and more.
Full article here.
I just cannot get into his art at all. I thought Tony Moores fit much better. I could actually see a background and distinguish characters. Adlards art is just too scratchy. Oh well.
Read Comics. Be Happy.
Charlie and Robert have done such an amazing job on Walking Dead! It's so good to see #100 over the horizon! Huge congratulations to both creators! :-)
Moore's work was too cartoony for the series IMO. His art on Exterminators was suited for him. Adlard is a much better fit. I didn't like him at first, but like fishbonex said he's had around 92 issues to grow on me. It's his book now. He's great and he's earned it.

Which means I won't be back till awhile after the compendium 2 releases. Peace folks.
well, they're talking about issue 100. if I was that far behind I'd have stayed away. there'b be nothing of relevance to me in the article, being at around issue 24 or so.
the spoiler in question is also four or five years old.
however, on the flip side, a spoiler notice wouldn't have been a bad thing to include at the top of the article.
Sits on the shelf!
Hell, I had it spoiled for me the year it happened. Wizard big splash page - GORIEST MOMENT OF THE YEAR! Didn't start reading the book until 2012 but I knew that was going to happen. You got off light.

Spoiler Warning....don't read further if you haven't read the latest issue.
I yelled out again when they offed Abraham. That was out of nowhere! At the end of the last ish, I thought they would have had some sort of confrontation. That caught me off guard. Good job!
