You Can't Stop The Zombie Invasion

It's official... zombies are the new vampires. Zombies were everywhere at this year's New York Comic Con. And not just nerds in makeup walking around the convention floor.

Earlier this year, AMC announced that it would be adapting the graphic novel The Walking Dead into a series event directed by Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Mist, Shawshank Redemption).

Video games get in on the undead action with Dead Rising 2 and a zombified spin off of the awesome Red Dead Redemption. In the pages of comic books, zombies will infest the worlds of Transformers, Star Trek and Ghostbusters. (Begs the question, what does a zombiefied Transformer eat? Car engines?)

The weirdest zombie sighting, however, had to be over at the Animal Planet booth, where inexplicably they have a pseudo-documentary show featuring the undead. Not sure how that fits with their brand, but I guess when in Rome... or when at Comic Con...

Personally, I think The Walking Dead looks pretty badass. But with the prevalence of zombies in pop culture, it's only a matter of time before we see a story where a sensitive zombie falls in love with a plucky human. Oh yeah, he'll probably sparkle while he's munching on brains.
