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?
T-Dog did an interview during a segment for the NFL (Hines Ward is going to be on the Walking Dead) where he was sporting a grey T-shirt that says "W Al Ke R" in letters that look like periodic table elements. I haven't found a link to purchase that yet.
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.
The first issue features nine covers, including one on newsstands featuring Danai Gurira as Michonne and eight cool variant covers by Dead artist Charlie Adlard and colorist Cliff Rathburn.
Says Dead overlord Robert Kirkman, “We’ll be talking about what’s coming up on the TV show, we’ll fill you in on what to expect from the comic and you’ll hear from all the talented people who work on all the various Walking Dead projects.”
From The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman revealing what's to come on the series to how the shocking events of issue #100 of The Walking Dead Comic will affect Rick and our favorite survivors, there's so much awesome content that fans can dive into! It's a great companion to our favorite Sunday night show!
There's also an exclusive interview with Danai Gurira, who plays the iconic character "Michonne", an exclusive prologue to the new Walking Dead book, The Road to Woodbury (about the rise of Philip aka The Governor written by Jay Bonansinga and Robert Kirkman), plus, all the latest news, revelations and tips for fans of the entire The Walking Dead universe.
