If your eyes were glued to the TV this past Sunday at 9pm, it’s safe to say that you were probably watching AMC’s newest undead series, Fear The Walking Dead. We’re assuming this because an astounding 10.1 million people were watching the new show, good for the all-time record in cable history. The massive series premiere was nearly double that of its predecessor, The Walking Dead, which totaled 5.35 million viewers.
Read on to find out what we thought about the disease-ridden pilot episode of AMC’s latest series, Fear The Walking Dead. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the new show in the comments section below. We want to know!

Issue #1 of Outcast— the newest comic by Walking Deadsuperstarwriter Robert Kirkman — hit shelves this week, and if it’s anything like his zombie epic, we’re in for one hell of a ride.
Kirkman, in addition to being a writer, is one of five partners at Image Comics, one of the leading indie comic publishers in the industry. Despite being the only partner who’s not a co-founder, it hasn’t stopped him from becoming something of a poster child for the company—his flagship comic series is on its whopping 129th issue and has spawned one of the highest rated cable TV dramas. It’s kind of tough to top that.
But Image has been changing the comics industry long before Walking Dead was ever a thing.
