Buy my collection of ‘The Walking Dead’ comics

Last night I posted what’s left of my The Walking Dead comic collection on eBay. I’ve sold a few key issues as individual listing, but I decided to sell the remaining 44 issues in one, big lot. I’ll probably get less money this way than if I sold each issue separately, but selling them in one lot spares me the hassle of trying to auction off each comic separately.

Why wasn’t Scott Wilson from ‘The Walking Dead’ nominated for an Emmy?

The 2014 Emmy nominations were announced yesterday. Missing (again) from the list was AMC’s The Walking Dead. What I find almost offensive is that actor Scott Wilson wasn’t nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his work as Herschel. I don’t see how anyone could watch his performance on The Walking Dead and not find it worthy of an Emmy, let alone a nomination.

Since when are teenage girls into Tom Waits?

BethTVfaceLast night’s episode of The Walking Dead ended with Beth Greene, the 17-year-old daughter of Hershel and sister of Maggie, singing an impromptu, a cappella version of Tom Waits’ 1999 song Hold On. How many teenage girls can sing 14-year-old Tom Waits songs word-for-word? It’s one thing to believe the world has been devastated by a plague that caused the dead to rise and then feed on the living like it’s Friday night at the Hagerstown Golden Corral, it’s quit another to believe that a shy, religious girl like Beth can belt out a Tom Waits song without missing a single word.
