I wrote a 441-word essay in a past post about The Walking Dead, of which I am an avid fan, but all the reasons I cannot get enough of the TV adaptation of this great story I found in no more than fourteen words, a quote from the synopsis on the back of one of the later volumes of the comic book created by Robert Kirkman and illustrated first by Tony Moore (issues 1-6) and later by Charlie Adlard (from issue 7 onward). Irony, indeed, is a great source of fiction as well as a great way to see our facts more clearly.

Let me share this quote with you. With hope, you can draw from it enough strength to get your ass off the couch when you’re feeling like you can live out your life in front of a TV screen, even if what’s on it is a lifetime’s worth of such a great made-for-TV film as The Walking Dead.

“In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start  living.”
