The Walking Dead returns October 14, 2012 (today!), and you either love it or hate it. As a fan of the graphic novels prior to its premiere in 2010, I was a bit skeptical of how well they would handle the entire scale of the story told within the pages. Would they keep the characters exactly the same or make them nuanced for more “interesting” television programming? Would they add characters in that weren’t in the graphic novels and if so, would they be important or get killed off in some fantastically gruesome way that would make it okay that they were shoved into the story? How would I go about deciding the best Walking Dead memes when there are so many to choose from?
Well, they have done all of those things. However, as an overzealous fan of anything having to do with zombies, I’ve been quite pleased with how the show has progressed…even if it doesn’t stay on point with the written series. Now, it may be a biased opinion being a zombie “fanboy” as it were, but I like the character development the show has given us. I like that I’m not constantly bombarded with walkers (the term used for zombies in the series). I find that it gives the show a bit of tension by not constantly showing the undead and opting to give the viewer the sense that they are out there and no one knows exactly where.
Also, as a fan of the Internet and all of its memes (hence the reason for this site), I’m incredibly pleased with memes and comics created by fans all over the world. I’ve decided to honor the beginning of season 3 today with 26 of the best Walking Dead memes. From Carl constantly running off somewhere like an idiot, to Lori being a giant slut-bag, the Internet is rife with some of the best Walking Dead memes. Hell, there are even some great ones for Daryl Dixon, that lone huntsman and his unsavory necklace. Shane? Got those here too. It doesn’t matter who you love or hate, there’s going to be something in here for you to have a laugh at before the season premiere begins tonight!
So without further ado, I present to you:
