Well I’m back from vacation and well rested so naturally I want to talk about undead fiends and the San Diego Comic Con which contained them. Bear with me because I’m going to try and catch up on all the key news from last week. So let’s get to it!

Let’s start off by diving into the MASSIVE pile of The Walking Dead news from Comic Con.

Carlos Gallardo, the producer of El Mariachi, and Kevin Eastman, the co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, have paired up to bring us Zombie Apocalypse, a working title comic book and potential screen play that looks pretty slick. (What Culture)

Speaking of comic books, it looks like the popular build a weapon zombie killing franchise Dead Rising is set to receive the comic treatment courtesy of IDW. (Gamepro)

Last Blood, the graphic novel about the war between zombies and vampires for control of the last of the human population in the post apocalyptic wastelands, is set to receive the film treatment with none other than Simon Hunter, director of The Mutant Chronicles at it’s helm. (The Film Stage)

In sadder news, Ruben Fleisher, director of last years fan favorite Zombieland, gave the bad news that Zombieland 2 is most likely a no-go due to scheduling conflicts and an unfinished script. (I Am Rogue)

The judge in the Jenna Jameson lawsuit recalled his victory ruling against her after she was a no-show in court and now it looks like a settlement may be in the cards. Who would have thought we’d have this much legal drama over Zombie Strippers? (Woodridge Patch)

Another nice little surprise at Comic Con was the trailer for the short film Stitched, about a group of soldiers who combat a deadly undead enemy in the Middle East, and written by none other than comic book legend Garth Ennis. Check it out after the break. (io9)

After the break, check out the game play trailer for Zombie Gunship, the iOS game where you command a flying assault plane trying to mow down the horde of undead scum who are aiming to take down a group of human survivors. It actually looks really good. (148apps.com)

Undead Labs spoke up and gave some more information about their upcoming zombie MMO Xbox Live exclusive games Class3 and Class4. (Gamasutra)

Issac Marion, the writer of Warm Bodies, the zombie romance that hopefully won’t be another Twilight, recently gave an interview about the film and the book. (USA Today)
