Ok, So VERY Good News For Us Zombie Comic Book Fans!!!

How fucking cool is this?!?!

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – In its biggest development deal to date, cable network AMC has acquired the rights to Robert Kirkman's popular comic book "The Walking Dead" for a potential series.
Frank Darabont ("The Shawshank Redemption") is on board to write, direct and executive produce the project.
"Dead" chronicles the months and years after a zombie apocalypse, when a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, travel in search of a safe, secure home. The comic explores the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies. Over time, they grow willing to do anything to survive, and interpersonal conflicts sometimes present a greater danger to their survival than the zombies who roam the country.
"Walking Dead," a monthly black-and-white comic book, has been a hotly sought-after property since it was published in 2003 by Image Comics. Darabont originally developed the project several years ago under his deal at NBC. It landed at AMC after a healthy bidding war.
