A to Z Challenge: My Favorite Storytellers-- K

OK, I've officially done too many novelists in a row and need to pay homage to storytellers from other media. And so, K is for...

Robert Kirman

Any of you who follow me on Facebook know that I am a fanatical lover of The Walking Dead. And Robert Kirkman is its super brilliant creator. Now, I adore the show for several reasons:

1. Zombies
2. Really good acting
3. Amazing characterization

And Kirkman is the mastermind behind the comics the inspired the show.

Any of you that read my blog on Max Brook's World War Z (you can read it here), you know I love seeing something as cool as a zombie elevated to high art. Brooks and Kirkman are birds of a feather when it comes to creating such amazing stories.

My hats off to him. Any other lovers of The Walking Dead?


  1. The only bad thing about the Walking Dead...its not again FOREVER! Agh! And I'm so glad you're paying attention to different kinds of writers!Lady Bluestocking@3500WordsPerPound

  2. My favorite author (K or other) is Korman as in Gorden Korman. Okay, I know he writes kidlit, but he's really funny! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. No, zombies aren't my thing, although there is an annual Zombie Walk through downtown Vancouver,BC.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Me! Me! Me! The Walking Dead is my #1 favorite show on TV. Can't wait for the next season to start.
