The Walking Dead television show premiered on our tv screens in 2010 and is finishing up the series nearly 12 years later. To celebrate the historic show, AMC is partnering with the Museum of Moving Images (MoMI) to bring you Living With The Walking Dead.
The latest MoMI exhibit opened on June 25 and will run till January 1, 2023 at their Queens, New York museum.
Living With The Walking Dead addresses the origins, production, fandom, and impact of The Walking Dead. The exhibit explores the television series, the comic book by Robert Kirkman that started it all, and the unique innovations it has contributed to depictions of the zombie apocalypse. You can expect to see original costumes and props, concept art, storyboards, scripts, and a wealth of prosthetic makeup used to transform cast members into vividly realized undead walkers.
The Walking Dead is one of the most watched television programs and has spun out a number of other series such as Fear The Walking Dead, and The World Beyond. New TWD programing including Isle of the Dead, Tales of the Walking Dead, and a yet-to-be titled series starring Daryl will all air over the next few years.
Kirkman’s 193-run comic book at Image Comics was the bases for all these tv shows. The first issue released in 2003 and had an abrupt, but planned, ending during the summer of 2019. Other titles such as Negan Lives, Walking Dead: Alien, and Skybound X’s Rick Grimes 2000 released over the past few years.
Clementine, a graphic novel by Eisner award winning Tillie Walden, released in June 2022 and has another two books planned.
Living With The Walking Dead gives TWD fans the ability to relive the comic and television series all over again. Expect this exhibit to be an experience you won’t want to miss.
Reservations for the exhibit are required and can be made via the MoMI website. Look for our review of the exhibit following our visit this August.
