No one knows better than our readers over at Good Girls Gone Geek how hard the summer months have been for Bex and I, with a seemingly endless hiatus for our favorite show, The Walking Dead. We mourn those we lost during season 2, but more to the point we mourn the lack of Rick and Daryl in our lives every week. Oh, and the rest of them of course…but mostly Rick and Daryl.
Suffice it to say, along with millions of other Walking Dead fans, we are constantly on the look-out for ways to get a fix of our favorite zombie-apocalypse show during our long period of withdrawal. This week, Entertainment Weekly has answered our collective psychic cries with not one, but four covers dedicated to the Walking Dead and a feature story giving fans a “sneak peek” at season three, about which Kirkman is quoted as saying, “This season really is about setting up these two worlds and watching them come to a head and collide, and you know that there are going to be some pretty explosive encounters between Rick and the Governor. This season is going to be about getting to know these two characters, and then waiting for their eventual confrontation that could destroy everything.”
The covers feature Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), The Governor (David Morrissey) and Michone (Danai Gurira) on their own; Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) shares a cover with long lost brother Merle (Michael Rooker) in what is sure to be Bex’s favorite cover.
