Walking Dead S06E16

Walking Dead proved once again they have no respect for their audience. They don’t know how to pace a show & just drawing it out & pretend it’s a cliffhanger. It’s “Glen’s Dead! Wink wink!” all over again. For one, this episode didn’t need to be 90 minutes long. It could have easily fit in 60 minutes, and still amp up the drama from what we saw. And if this episode was truly about Rick’s downfall, as Kirkman & Gimple are claiming now, and not about who died, they could have done it much better without leaving us with the crappy ending we got. Instead, they’re blatantly screwing with viewers, and not even delivering on their goals very well.

So I decided to rewrite the episode. After the jump!

My Walking Dead Prediction

Prediction for what might end up being spoilers! Definitely spoilers for the comic.

Maggie meets Lucille. This keeps in the spirit of the comic, and still ups the ante. Walking Dead has proven they don’t know what to do with a baby storyline with Rick’s kid, so they’ll deal with Maggie before adding another kid to the mix.

Although Maggie was already grabbing her belly in pain? Maybe that story ends up with a miscarriage resulting in a walker fetus? Perhaps a bit too far for TV. But then Glen can fulfill his comic destiny. Or they replace Glen with Michonne because she hasn’t done anything all season other than be happy, and people can’t be allowed to be happy in the zombie apocalypse.

Seattle Center Viewmaster

I just bought a collection of old Seattle Center Viewmaster slides off of eBay. I liked this shot because it shows the Space Needle’s original Galaxy Gold top, which I wish they kept. I love it.

#4ColorRemix Panels Sent, More Available!

Links to panels have been sent out to everyone who’s requested one. I picked a short, two page story this time, since we’ve only got a handful of people participating so far. There’s still 6 panels up for grabs, so if you get one done and want to do another just ask!

Send me a message on twitter to participate (@agdtinman), and use the #4ColorRemix hashtag.

Deets:

  • The image above is a sample of what I’d send you to remix in your own style.
  • In order to combine them all back together, you’ll have to stick with the dimensions of the original.
  • Either reincorporate speech bubbles with a similar font size, or leave enough space so I can re-add the text myself (if you don’t want to deal with fonts & bubbles.)
  • There’s no current time constraints, it all depends on how many people are interested.
  • Have fun!

4 Color Remix

Time for a new project! In the vein of the Covered blog, which artists redo comic covers, I want to put together a whole story based on a classic 40′s pulp sci-fi comic. The idea is that each person who participates would get one random panel to recreate in whatever way they would like (sketch, doodle, photographs, LEGO, paint, etc.), as long as it fits the same size/dimensions as the original. Then I’ll combine them all back together to recreate the story.

You don’t have to be a good artist to participate. It’ll be awesome just to see everyone’s different styles and takes on the panels! I have no idea if it will still be readable, or understandable, but there’s no doubt it will be awesome!
