If you’re visiting for the first time from the Onion AV Club, welcome. I hope you find all your zombie related needs fulfilled here. Drop me a line telling me what you’d like to see if you don’t.

Zombies are hitting the boob tube, via the show Medium. The plan is to do a mashup that inserts lead Patricia Arquette’s character into George A. Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead. Nicely played, Medium producers. Now I have to watch at least one episode of your show. (The Live Feed)

Need another peek at REC 2? The third teaser trailer is embedded after the break and it looks … okay. The final trailer for I Sell the Dead (it’s coming August 7) looks charming and can also be found after the break. (Dread Central)

Just because Left 4 Dead 2 is on its way doesn’t mean that Left 4 Dead is, uh, dead. Nope, it has some sweet, new downloadable content called “Crash Course” coming in September. This new one, set between the “No Mercy” and “Death Toll” campaigns, is aimed primarily at Versus mode players, but has stuff for all. (Kotaku)

As a music writer (that’s my main gig, folks) who is zombie obsessed, I cannot help but be a little intrigued by Paul is Undead, a book that asks, “What if John Lennon had become a zombie before forming the Beatles.” What if, indeed. (io9)

Sit down for a lengthy chat with the stars and creative team of Zombieland. (

If you wanted to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but thought, “Nah, too many words, not enough pictures,” your day has nearly arrived. The graphic novel version has been announced. (Publishers Weekly)

Well, that’s the big stuff from the last few days. See you all tomorrow with more news and content!

    Wow, that Medium episode does sound kind of cool, I’ll have to keep my eye out for that.

    Can’t wait to hear what you thought of I Sell The Dead. I saw it again last week in Montreal and it was just as entertaining the second time around.

    I’m seeing REC 2 in Mid-Sept, so I’ll let you know how it is.
