Last week we brought to your attention the vastly important and difficult job of inking with Tony Akins and Stefano Gaudiano. But what happens after the penciling and inking? You all probably whispered to yourselves after last week’s interview. Well, we’ve got news for you: it’s coloring!

“The thing about smart mother fuckers is that sometimes, they sound like crazy mother fuckers to stupid mother fuckers...”
Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead, Vol. 9: Here We Remain

“The second we put a bullet in the head of one of those undead monsters -- the moment one of us drove a hammer into one of their faces -- or cut a head off. We became what we are! And that's just it. THAT's what it comes down to. You people don't know what we are.

We're surrounded by the DEAD. We're among them -- and when we finally give up we become them! We're living on borrowed time here. Every minute of our life is a minute we steal from them! You see them out there. You KNOW that when we die -- we become them. You think we hide behind walls to protect us from the walking dead?

Don't you get it? We ARE the walking dead! WE are the walking dead.”
Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead, Vol. 5: The Best Defense

“In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.”
Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye
