Would young Carl Grimes be less traumatized by the undead apocalypse featured in the Walking Dead comics if he could play with compact, zombie-themed toys? Alas, we’ll probably never know. But we do know that Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman‘s Skybound comics imprint and Diamond Select Toys have announced that Series 3 of their Walking Dead Minimates will hit stores this spring. The series will feature characters from the franchise’s prison storyline including Rick, Tyreese, and Hershel (all of which you can see below). READ FULL STORY

Today’s most popular videogames often come in two flavors: The standard $60 edition or, for super-fans willing to plunk down some extra coin, the special, collector’s, or limited edition. The latter category certainly isn’t for everyone. In fact, their higher price points and penchant for including everything from art books to action figures is something casual fans might find superfluous, and generally limits their appeal to only the geekiest of gamers. However, for that select group of passionate players, there’s nothing cooler than going beyond the gamepad—be it through a behind-the-scenes DVD or mini space marine statue–to become a bit more immersed in their virtual world of choice. For those folks, we offer the following look at the season’s best bonus-brimming, swag-packed, universe-expanding editions.

The Walking Dead: The Game won five trophies at Spike TV’s 10th annual Video Game Awards, including the top prize of Game of the Year. The downloadable game, based on the hit comic-book series, also earned Telltale Games Studio of the Year. Borderlands 2 won four awards, including Best Shooter, and Journey won three awards, including Best Independent Game.
For the fourth time, Samuel L. Jackson hosted the live event, which also featured appearances from Jack Black and Tenacious D, cast members from the actual Walking Dead, Jessica Alba, and Star Trek‘s Zoë Saldana. Jackson set the tone early, warning the audience and the show’s producers, “Whoever’s in charge of the bleep button, keep your finger ready.” He delivered on his promise, dealing expletives like he had snakes in his carry-on at 30,000 feet.
In between handing out awards, the show was full of first looks and trailers for next year’s biggest games. The first video for South Park: The Stick of Truth debuted, with Cartman assaulting a hobbit. “I’m the wizard, and you’re the dwarf, and you will respect my authority,” he screamed.

This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Downton Abbey‘s imminent return to television in the States. Yes, Jan. 6 is still a few weeks away, but I can’t wait to see whether Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Mary (Michelle Dockery) actually walk down the aisle — they really need to, I couldn’t take another breakup — and what brand of American sass Shirley MacLaine brings with her across the pond. Plus, on a more sappy note, the series spawned a regular Sunday night Masterpiece viewing/wine-drinking party with a group of friends that is priceless to me.
I’ve also polled my EW colleagues to ask what they are most grateful for pop culture wise this turkey day. See what they said below!

Have you ever wondered why you keep watching The Walking Dead, even when nothing ever seems to happen? Well, thanks to this colorful graph from the good people over at Blame It On The Voices, now we know and — spoiler alert! — it’s because all the episodes follow basically the same pattern. Check it out below (NSFW):
So let’s say you watch The Walking Dead every Sunday on AMC, and you read the new issue of The Walking Dead every month, and you just finished reading the Dead spin-off novel Rise of the Governor, and you named your firstborn son Carl and insist that he wears a cowboy hat at all times. And yet, you still want more Walking Dead in your life. If that’s the case, you might be interested in The Walking Dead: The Official Magazine, a new Dead-centric periodical that hits newsstands and digital platforms tomorrow. The first issue features nine covers, including one on newsstands featuring Danai Gurira as Michonne and eight cool variant covers by Dead artist Charlie Adlard and colorist Cliff Rathburn.
Says Dead overlord Robert Kirkman, “We’ll be talking about what’s coming up on the TV show, we’ll fill you in on what to expect from the comic and you’ll hear from all the talented people who work on all the various Walking Dead projects.”
The magazine is available on iPad, Nook, and Kindle Fire, but check out the first cover below, and click forward for a look at all nine!
