AMC’s highly anticipated new show The Walking Dead is set to premiere on Halloween night. The show is based on Robert Kirkman’s graphic novels of the same name and follows a group of survivors in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. Kirkman is now working on an original trilogy of novels that take place in the same universe as the graphic novels.
According to Deadline , “the books will be conceptualized and outlined by Kirkman before being developed by horror novelist Jay Bonansinga (Perfect Victim). Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press, will publish The Walking Dead novels beginning in 2011.
