As a relative newbie to the show, I honestly had avoided the series even though it was extremely popular, I've never been a big Zombie fan, but due to being asked to join in on this project with HCG and AMC I found myself renting season one, watching it in 5 days, then renting season 2 and watching it over a weekend... I am hooked!
What I loved so much about the story is that it is about the people, their characters and relationships, dealing with a reality that the World as they know it has pretty much come to an end...
I knew then how I wanted to tackle this piece... focusing on the Heroes, the people.
I recalled Drew Struzan creating a Zombie heavy SDCC poster for Season 1... I saw that and thought, well, thats what our heroes are facing right there...
How about we show the zombies point of view in this one...
