Walking Dead Season 3… thunderdome?

Here’s the trailer for Walking Dead Season 3 that shows a bit of a Thunderdome moment as two sides go to war. You’d think with all those zombies out there, humanity would have more things to worry about than power grabs between rival survivor camps… but never overestimate the human race, I guess.

Da Vinci’s Demons… TV does Renaissance-punk.

Here’s an interesting looking TV series from the creators of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Da Vinci’s Demons, which recasts Leonardo da Vinci in Wild Wild West mode – superhero/inventor/demon hunter. It’s certainly the first time some proper Renaissance-punk has got air-time on a major TV channel (if you discount the BBC’s CBBC kids series, Leonardo, […]

Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection by Don Roff and illustrated by Chris Lane (book review))

If you were faced with almost certain death, would you make the time to record it and leave it for future generations to learn from? I probably wouldn’t, I’d be too busy running away, screaming like a little girl and looking for somewhere to hole up while the Calvary comes. Part-diary, part-Blair Witch Project, ‘Zombies’ […]

Can You Survive The Zombie Apocalypse? by Max Brallier (book review)

If you like zombies and pick-your-own-adventures, keep on the following page. If you don’t, go back to the home page. It’s been about 20 years since I read a pick-your-own-adventure book. I remember as a young man, hiding under the covers with a torch, reading an ‘Indiana Jones’ adventure and being constantly devastated when I […]
