Walt Flanagan wears a lot of hats. He's the manager of a comic book store, a comic book artist (having drawn everything from the epic classic monster mash-up "War of the Undead" to Batman) the star of AMC's "Comic Book Men", and a co-host of the popular, multiple award winning podcast "Tell 'Em Steve Dave". This October, Flanagan (along with writer and co-creator Bryan Johnson) brings us "Cryptozoic Man".

"The Walking Dead" season 3 is about to begin! Check out 50 hi-res images from the new season, and don't forget to check out AMC'S zombie epic starting October 14th.

AMC revealed to the world the new poster for The Walking Dead Season 2 today. It keeps the color scheme & shot perspective from the first season poster. Both seasons had a 3rd person, over the shoulder perspective of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln); although while in Season One, it had him riding calmly, opposite the outgoing, chaotic (and now dead) traffic. Here, we see him running towards a mysterious farmhouse, gun drawn. Does it imply the build up of panic? Or convey the vast emptiness that is now their world?

A fistfull of clips from the upcoming second season of "The Walking Dead" have hit the tubes and before you go getting all excited I should tell you that all of them are about ten seconds long. Not that you can't do some really good stuff in ten seconds. Sometimes ten seconds is all you need if something is really good. Ten seconds can completely please a woman... or viewer. Whatever. What were we talking about?

Showtime looks to be working on a new series titled "The Damned" which is based on the graphic novel of the same name. For those of you who think reading is stupid even if there's a bunch of pictures the story focuses on 3 demon families who run an underground soul trafficking circuit during prohibition. Not drinking ruins everything.

Regina Hall, Anthony Anderson and Kevin Hart are rumored to all be on board for the 2012 release of "Scary movie 5". Because we all demanded there be more "Scary Movie" films. Of course now we regret it. Man Harvey Wallbangers can really mess up an evening am I right? They can also cause people to think "Scary Movie 5" is a good idea.

Lily Rabe has squinty eyes and 20 credits on her IMDB, none of which I have seen, and now she's been confirmed for the cast of FX's new wack job series "American Horror Story". The new show will focus on a family that moves into a new creepy home in the aftermath of the fathers infidelity. Then they all put on rubber suits or something. I don't know the promo frightens me.

Like many of you, I enjoyed the hell out of AMC's new series "The Walking Dead" last season. I was extremely surprised they managed a gritty, gory tale of the zombie apocalypse that was paired with great acting and characters with personality. Most can agree that this is also a series that isn't just for die hard zombie or horror fans - the true drama is about human survival during the end of the known world, and the stories of the survivors can appeal to almost anyone.

The website for the Guillermo del Toro co-written frightfest "Don't Be Afraid Of the Dark" has hit the tubes for your time wasting enjoyment. Normally I wouldn't give a crap about a website launch but this one is actually pretty cool. Spooky voices that whisper your name and some hot webcam action make it all kinds of fun. Although it's probably going to be a giant let down after I built it up with promises of "hot webcam action".

All kind of news around "The Walking Dead" seems to be flying out of Comic-Con and probably the most exciting is that season 2 now officially has a premiere date of Sunday, October 16. The second most exciting thing is that a trailer for the upcoming season has been released. Third most exciting is a bunch of stills. Fourth most exciting is that to date I have not been notified that I won't be signed on to the cast for season 3.

AMC has officially announced a four part mini-series based on Stephan King's "Bag of Bones", a story that focuses on a man haunted by the loss of his wife. Pierce Brosnan and Anabeth Gish are both confirmed for the project which begins filming next month. Proof once again that if you wait long enough every book will be turned into moving pictures. The point here is reading is dumb.

The first trailer for the live action role playing kiddnapping succubus flick (seriously) "Knights of Badassdom" has hit the net thanks to all things Comic-Con and it looks hella good, son. Do people still say hella good? Ya know, like that No Doubt song? Is No Doubt still popular? They broke up?! Oh god.

Liam Neeson is teaming up again with is "A-Team" director Joe Carnahan in "The Grey". Neeson seems to have a new found love for the horror genre, can he pull it off once again in this man vs. wolf thriller?

Bill Moseley seems like a natural fit for Charles Manson, so it's good to hear that Susanna Lo has cast him in her upcoming flick, "Manson Girls". Manson is pretty much a love child between Chop Top and Otis, so why not?

The first season of AMC's "The Walking Dead" was a rousing success and you'll be able to buy it for yourself in March. Start saving your pennies, the Blu-ray will run you $49, the DVD will go for $39.99.

Our first big awards show of 2011 has come and gone with last night's airing of The People's Choice Awards. This year the fans didn't give much love to the horror genre at all despite the addition of a 'Favorite Horror Movie' category. The first winner of this prestigious category? "A Nightmare on Elm Street". At least "Dexter" won for favorite TV obsession.

Sydney Prescott, author of a self help book is finishing up her book tour in her home town of Woodsboro when the Ghostface murders start up again. Such is the leaked plot synopsis included in the first round of "Scream 4" test screening invitations.

Be still my beating heart! Leonardo DiCaprio is confirmed to star in "The Devil in the White City", a new film based on H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer. This will mark the first time I've ever had a man crush on a murderer. Mark this down.

Good news and bad news for fans of "The Walking Dead". The good news is the AMC series had a big ass premier with 5.3 million viewers. The bad news, that means instead of going out, getting drunk and going home with some random person you probably sat at home and watched TV. I've never been so proud and disappointed of you in my whole life.

I love every thing that comes out of Norway. Vikings, those weird ass black metal kids and that band that sang "Barbie Girl". Well add the new film "Inside a Whore", which has a new trailer online, to the list. I don't even know what it's about, I got so excited about the title I blacked out for a solid twenty minutes.

Still got "Let Me In" fever? Take a number kids! So here's a deleted clip from the film to keep your chops moist. Just to be clear though, if you're taking a number I think only 17 people went to see the movie so the line might not be too long. 17 people counting the five of us on the podcast. And no, we won't be in the line.
