We’re still about 2 months shy of the return of The Walking Dead; Season 8 of AMC’s mega hit premieres on October 22nd. To pass the time and scratch that particular itch, it seems like the perfect time to delve into some of the lesser known aspects of the show as it relates to the comic book series created by Robert Kirkman. While the TV series has been harrowing and shocking, it pales in many ways to the unbridled brutality of the comic.
AMC definitely gets away with more than a network channel shackled by the puritanical restrictions of the FCC. Still, they draw the line at nudity and acts of extreme violence. The comic book, on the other hand, does not. To illustrate this point, YouTuber Predatoure has assembled the video essay below: 5 Crazy The Walking Dead Comic Moments That Never Made It To TV. For those unfamiliar with the source material, what’s revealed may be extremely disturbing.
