    Really. No one else took the bait? I am disappoint.

    They’ve made the Jennifer comic into live action, I think more than once, but here’s one. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0643108/

    Matt- Id say that what makes The Walking Dead different is not that “it keeps going” but rather that the book isn’t a traditional zombie book at all. When Rick wakes up in the hospital at the beginning, he’s essentially slept through most zombie films. The scary part is over. The dead came back. They are not going anywhere. What next? how do you keep living after the zombie movie ends? how do you find water? how do you find food? the scariest parts of The Walking Dead have nothing to do with zombies at all. The people, and how they live, and the lengths they go to to keep living is what drives the horror of the series. The title of the book doesn’t refer to the dead. The title refers to the living.
