§ Walking Dead week continues as creator Robert Kirkman receives the ULTIMATE ACCOLADE: a big profile in his hometown newspaper!
“Day to day, I try not to think about it,” he said during a recent phone interview. “Most of the time when I’m in my studio writing comics, it will occur to me that I’ve got a TV show that will be on the air in a two or three weeks: ‘That’s weird.’ I try not to focus on it because maybe it will give me some weird sense of accomplishment and I’ll never get anything done.”

I know I should be all conciliatory, but that’s never been my way. If I’m in your home and I lose at Scrabble, you’ll be finding tiles in the oddest places for months to come, that is, if you even still have a non-burnt-down home. So, obviously, this loss makes me furious, and not in that adorable “Furious George” way or that high-pitched weird Ford whistle way. I spent a lot of my hard-earned dollars, and those of my largest donor, Gary’s Fried Chicken, home of the delicious Triple Threat: two fried filets of chicken with another fried filet in the middle because “the chicken is so good you don’t even need to slip bacon and cheese in there, idiot.”
