The Walking Dead TV Universe May Exist Longer Without Rick Than With Him

Because at this point, The Walking Dead is far bigger as a pop culture entity now than it was when the TV show first started. As Frank Darabont and comic co-creator Robert Kirkman were working together on the AMC adaptation, The Walking Dead was merely a bestselling zombie book that comic fans loved to talk about, and there were no guarantees about how successful it might be in other formats. But thanks in part to Andrew Lincoln’s portrayal of Rick Grimes, on top of all the other qualities that make the TV series stand out, The Walking Dead is now a global phenomenon that produces video games, board games, clothing, toys, tie-in novels, glassware, and everything else in the marketing spectrum.
