Well, the PlayStation Network might be undergoing some problems these days, but that doesn’t mean they’re not pumping out great games. Dead Block is a defense building game where you’re constructing a barrier against the undead. Check out the trailer after the break. (PlayStation LifeSyle)

Emma Bell, the beloved sister from The Walking Dead that… well the one that didn’t make it, (seriously, if you haven’t seen the show by now, what are you doing here?) gives a pretty nice interview about her time on the show. (Den of Geek)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman delivers another slam dunk interview that’s amazing and chock full of spoilers for those of you that haven’t come around to reading the comics yet. (AV Club)

Infinite Kung-Fu is a comic about zombies and Kung-Fu. It’s also 464 pages. However you can read 250 of those pages for free, right now! (io9)

This review of Dylan Dog goes beyond the movie itself to discuss the similarities, and what was left out, from its Italian comic book counterpart. There’s a lot of spoilers as well so beware. (Fangoria)

After the break, check out the trailer and preview episode for Lego Zombie Invasion, a stop motion series that was created by a fifteen year old kid. (Buy Zombie)

Saving the best news for last, I just want to inform everyone that on June 3 there will be a “zombie furry convention” in Quebec. That is all. (Buy Zombie)

After losing Ryan Reynolds and Zach Galifianakis, it looks like they’re turning to Jeff “The Dude” Bridges to play a main role in the upcoming movie R.I.P.D. about zombie cops. (Bloody Disgusting)

Okay, this is a total puff piece from AMC where they show forum reader speculation about the CDC from The Walking Dead. However, the fact they’ve made it an article might be a teaser that they’ll play a bigger, non comic related part in season two. (AMC)

I’m a huge comic book nerd, and Goldilocks in Zombie Land looks really entertaining. It’s about one of the many alternate universe fantasy lands, much like the one Shrek inhabits, that is infected with a zombie plague. You can check out the free preview if you’re interested. (Buy Zombie)
