Just because comic book adaptations are plentiful doesn't mean that the buzz on them can't still go completely through the roof. The excitement surrounding the premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead," based on Robert Kirkman's acclaimed comic book series, is such that the panel for the series at the New York Comic Con was standing room only...and that's if you could even get in the room in the first place. (We couldn't.) If you're one of those who was left standing in the hallway, we have good news: Bullz-Eye was invited to participate in a series of roundtable interviews with members of the cast and and creative team, who provided us with a great deal of insight into a show which will undoubtedly be sitting atop more than a few best-of lists come the end of 2010.

Frank Darabont and Robert KirkmanFrank Darabont and Robert Kirkman
Director and Graphic Novel Author | October 29, 2010

Frank Darabont: My perception of the main task here is really to hew to the intention of what Robert (Kirkman) has done here, which is to tell these stories in the most unflinching and adult character-driven fashion possible.

Andrew Lincoln: I read the pilot (for 'The Walking Dead') and didn't expect it to be so witty and moving. That combination of emotions just makes for compelling storytelling.

Norman Reedus: I'm not in the comic book, so I don't know where I'm headed. I'm kind of spiraling out into the universe right now. There's a lot of creative energy flying around this.

I'm one of those people who, on airplanes, it's, like, 'Okay, who's this weird woman sitting next to me and reading a comic book?' They're reading Nobel Prize-winning literature, and I'm reading a comic book.
