AMC is planning a series based on the Walking Dead comic books. I’ve only just started reading them and they’re pretty good.

It’s really about how the writer portrays people and their reactions to life in a world gone mad. In that regard, the authors do a pretty good job.
As part of of promotional effort, AMC is animating the first issue (at least) of the comic. This takes you through about half of the first issue. Check it out:
