The Walking Dead on AMC aired on October 30th. It was enjoyable. Compared to the comic book there was a bit more characterization and I thoroughly enjoyed the additions/changes for television. Check out both the TV show and the comic book, by Robert Kirkman.
Also, check out the young adult book Zombies vs Unicorns edited by Justine Larbalestier and Holly Black. The book is a series of short stories alternating between Unicorns and Zombies. At the beginning of each story Justine, the advocate for Zombies, or Holly, the lover of all things Unicorns, explain why their particular creature is better than the other. Personally, I am ready for some zombie unicorns. (Published by Simon & Schuster)
