The Walking Dead shamble into novel territory

From DHD – The zombies are taking over. Not only has Robert Kirkman’s bestselling comic series The Walking Dead invaded television (the show premieres this Halloween on AMC), now they’re taking over publishing. A trilogy of original novels willl be published by Thomas Dunne books, an imprint of St. Martins Press, starting in 2011. The books’ plots will take place in the world and context established by Kirkman’s comic series, which is currently in its 77th issue and has sold approximately three million copies worldwide.

The books will be conceptualized and outlined by Kirkman before being developed by horror novelist Jay Bonansinga (Perfect Victim).

All they need now is a video game…
