For all your zombie purchasing, here is a thread where we can share links.
AMC has set up an official Walking Dead store on the AMC website: http://www.amctv.com...lking-dead/shop
It has links to T-Shirts, DVDs, the Walking Dead Board Game, Rick/Daryl/Michone figurines, trading cards and music.
I spotted an interesting looking book called The Walking Dead and Philosophy, by Wayne Yuen. I read in the foreword where he says there are lots of spoilers within, so fair warning:
Guns, chainsaws, and machetes are not enough for survival: humans also need agreement on rules of conduct. Can equality or fairness have any polace in the post-apocalyptic world? Do theft or even assault and murder become okay under desperate circumstances? Who should be recognized as having political authority? What about eating human flesh? Should survivors have children?
AMC also has the Walking Dead Game on Facebook.
Also, the trailer for World War Z with Brad Pitt recently came out, the book it is based on is often a point of comparison to the Walking Dead.
There are real life events you can take part in. Most people have heard of (and some here have participated in) Run For Your Lives (COMPANY HAS GONE BANKRUPT), a zombie themed outdoor 5k obstacle course where you can be a runner or a zombie. Typically costs between $60 & $100.
A newer event is called The Walking Dead: Escape, which situates you in a large arena, and you have to find your way to safety. Robert Kirkman seems to be affiliated with this, as he set up the first Walking Dead: Escape in San Diego at this year's Comicon. Cost seems to be $78, and since it is newer they haven't added many cities yet.
And just a few weeks ago, Kirkman announced the release of an official Walking Dead Magazine to stores and digital formats.
