The Walking Dead Season 3 Prison Is Making Creator Robert Kirkman UncomfortableBy: Chris Crum - September 11, 2012
The Walking Dead Season 3 is debuting on October 14, and AMC is having a blast keeping fans salivating in anticipation of the hit show’s return. Last week, we saw the release of a new poster for the season, and an even better poster celebrating the show’s ten million Facebook fan milestone, paying tribute to the film The Social Network.
Now, AMC is sharing a video tour of the prison, where much of the third season will take place. If you’re familiar with the comics, you’ll know the prison well. The tour is led by none other than Robert Kirkman, the writer and creator of the comics.
“It’s really blowing me away…I never imagined that I would be here standing in this prison,” says Kirkman. “It’s really strange to think about all of the pages coming in from Charlie Adlard – you know, seven, eight years ago – when we were doing the prison storyline in the comic book, and watching the way he drew the prison cells, and all the little nuances and stuff that we put into the comic book prison, and then to see people looking at those comics and taking inspiration from that, and then constructing it in real life, and being able to actually go onto second levels, and walk upstairs, and go in cells and stuff, it is absolutely just completely bizarre.”
“Things that are in comics should never exist in real life,” he adds. “I feel really uncomfortable here.”
