If you cannot get enough of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead, and can't wait for the premiere of the AMC television series based on the successful graphic novel, then you are definitely in luck. Robert Kirkman will be returning to give his fans a taste of 'walking dead' in the upcoming anthology The Living Dead 2, edited by John Joseph Adams. The collection will feature both original and reprinted zombie stories from a variety of writers including Kirkman.
