McFarlane toys recently unveiled the first series of their Walking Dead toy line based on the tv show rather than the comic book. I’ve got to say so far I’m liking them more than the comic book line released earlier this year. (Bloody Disgusting)

In local news (if you live in Scotland) the Dundee city council said, after prodding by a local resident, that unlike other cities recently mentioned in the news, if the threat of a zombie or vampire attack becomes a possible circumstance, the city would draft official plans to combat the problem.

While it’s mainly an interview about his latest masterpiece Super Dinosaur, Robert Kirkman also talks about The Walking Dead and how his children play into that story in this interview. (Wired)

We might have a long wait, but at least it’s official that Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges will be bringing us R.I.P.D. (based on the comic book series) in 2013. (Dread Central)

It looks like Greene’s farm is finally fully stocked as it was announced earlier that actors (with good science fiction backgrounds) have been cast to play Hershel Greene and his daughter Maggie (who will be a love interest for our favorite little courier Glenn) on season two of The Walking Dead.

After the break, check out the first five minutes of the latest zombie flick Dead Genesis, which looks pretty good, with a dark sadness that we fell in love with during the Dead Island trailer. (Bloody Disgusting)
