  1. Archie is the man.

    By the way lads, for the record, i don’t *hate* zombie comics; i just hate that there’s so many gimmicky zombie comics. Most of them are crap. Saying that, The Walking Dead is fantastic; one of the best comics out there. Raise the Dead was a really good zombie comic too.


  2. thecomiccast Says:

    ‘Hate’ was the exact word you used in your off-the-record conversation with us . . . only kiddin, we love you. The Walking Dead is beast. Outside of the comic world we’re also loving E4’s Big Brother/Zombie mini-series Deat Set (

  3. Yeah, that was great. Written by Charlie Brooker who does Screenwipe. Watch that while yer at it.

    Good one guys! I’m probably gonna embarass myself right now but who does that song at the end? Sounds really familiar…

  5. Stephen Mooney Says:

    Now wait just one second, hold on… ‘The Walking Dead is Beast’. I’m sorry, what? ‘Beast’? What, ‘Awesome’ just doesn’t cut it any more? What the hell does beast mean? I swear, you kids…
    “I used to be with ‘it’, but then they changed what ‘it’ was. Now what I’m with isn’t ‘it’ anymore and what’s ‘it’ seems weird and scary.”

  6. thecomiccast Says:

    The track is from Silent Hill 3. As for “Beast”, Craig likes to come up with his own catchphrases. He also enjoys talking about himself in the third person.

  7. Luke F Says:

    Is Neil Gaiman`s name really pronounced Neil Gay-man?!

  8. thecomiccast Says:

    Yeah it definitely is. I saw it in an FAQ on his site.

  9. Coming up with your own catch-phrases is totally fetch.
