‘Walking Dead’ Creator Robert Kirkman Explains Why There Aren’t Any Animal Zombies #TheWalkingDead #TWDUpdate
Robert Kirkman, the creator of “The Walking Dead” comic books that were adapted into AMC’s hit drama, stopped by “Conan” Thursday night, and answered a big question that might bother faithful fans of the series: why aren’t there any zombie animals on the TV show?
“The artist that draws the comic book loves drawing people, loves drawing zombies, does not enjoy drawing animals so much,” Kirkman replied.
So, there you have it: the lack of “Walking Dead” animal zombies is all illustrator’s Charlie Adlard’s fault.
Conan also asked Kirkman about products he gets pitched now that the show is so huge. He revealed he’s been pitched “Walking Dead” perfume and a “Walking Dead” energy drink. “You’re either gonna smell like a dead body or a sweaty survivor, which doesn’t sound good to me either way,” Kirkman joked about the perfume..
As for what’s to come on the show, Kirkman recently told EW to expected more character deaths before the end of this season. And despite the show’s showrunner changes, Kirkman seems confident with how things will move forward.
