Hey look, it’s Norman Reedus aka Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead hanging out with the Green Ranger. Let’s make that clear, it’s not a guy cosplaying as the Green Ranger, but the actual Green Ranger, Jason David Frank. Whatever amazing photo op you think you have planned for this year’s con season can’t possibly compare to this slice of awesome.

These adorable drawings are the work of DeviantArtist María Pérez Pacheco who has drawn watercolor versions of nerdy characters that would look right at home in a children’s book. She’s covered most of the major fandoms, including Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and even Frozen, but the best one may be The Walking Dead. It’s got the cast from the television show, but the zombies they’re fighting are straight out of the game Plants vs. Zombies.

Television shows gain a fair amount of freedom when they air on cable channels instead of broadcast, and one of those freedoms is showing lots of violence. The Walking Dead goes all out and is packed with guts and gore, but that’s not stopping MyNetworkTV from editing the series to make it broadcast television friendly.

MyNet has recently acquired syndication rights. They channel is owned by Fox, and they’re excited to add The Walking Dead to their line-up. I’m guessing they’ve seen the series, but I can’t imagine how they came to the conclusion that they could make it more family friendly without cutting out huge chunks of material. Needless to say, I’m skeptical about the final product. The only way I can picture it going well is if they own the silliness of trying to edit the series and place giant floating cartoon heads over all the violence.

custom michonne barbie

Flickr’s Peewee Parker likes to make custom dolls and, as you can see, does some pretty kickass work. This custom Michonne looks like she’d take Barbie out in about two seconds.

She’d probably keep Ken as one of her “pets” while she was at it.

Screen Junkies usually sticks to films for their series of Honest Trailers, but The Walking Dead proved to be too appealing. They point out all the big flaws including the inconsistencies and contradictions and the fact that everyone seems to be trying real hard not to use the word “zombie”. Given the show’s gigantic ratings, most viewers must not mind the mistakes.

This should go without saying, but if you haven’t watched the series and don’t want to be spoiled for the first three seasons, don’t watch.

Everyone else can go ahead and check out the honest trailer after the break…

The Walking Dead fans at NYCC got a rare chance to see incredible art and actual props from the series at a special gallery show celebrating the tenth anniversary of the comic. A Decade of Dead was just a few blocks away from the convention in the Pillars 37 art gallery, and they even had the Hyundi Veloster Zombie Survival Machine that debuted at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year.

The walls were full of original artwork and tables held some of the most famous props from the series. Rick’s hat was there along with his well-worn Sheriff’s bag. It sat right next to Daryl Dixon’s crossbow, which would come in handy for shooting the zombies hanging out on the opposite wall.

There were busts of zombies on one table as well as full-size zombies including both of Michonne’s pets with their missing jaws. They all looked very nearly as disgusting in person as they do on the screen and it was hard to turn your back on them and walk away for fear they’d sneak up and take a bite out of you.

Santa Fe ZSM_Final_Upload

Hyundai kicked off New York Comic Con by unveiling the Hyundai Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine. It was selected from 82,500 vehicles that were created with The Walking Dead Chop Shop app that let fans create the vehicle they thought would be best to drive during the zombie apocalypse. Winner Anson Kuo’s modified Santa Fe was chosen as the best design and then brought to life with the help of Galpin Auto Sports (GAS).

“My main design goal was to make the vehicle as stealthy and spacious as possible,” said Kuo. “I knew knives and blades would be the best bet for weaponry – they could slice and dice the zombies without releasing any ammunition. Basing the design on the Santa Fe allows space for extra passengers as well as weapons, supplies and all the other necessary items needed during a real zombie apocalypse.”

GAS took that idea to heart and the vehicle sports knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and even a silencer for the muffler. Fans attending NYCC will be able to see the car and even take a seat behind the wheel.

If you’re at the con, head to booth #542 to see it for yourself. If you’re sitting at home, no worries, Nerd Approved is at New York Comic Con and we’ll have plenty of news and photographs to make you feel like you’re at the show, too.
