Walking Dead Creator Settles Debate Over Zombie Death
The Walking Dead fans have long debated whether the zombies in the series retain any of their former intelligence. However, in issue of The Walking Dead Deluxe, writer Robert Kirkman definitively answered the question, stating that zombies are mindless and lack any perception of the world. Kirkman dismissed the idea of an issue centering on the perspective of the zombies as "lame" and confirmed that there would be no unforeseen evolution in the zombie condition that could lead to resurrection. This interpretation is a slight stipulation on the common trope of zombies retaining some corroded semblance of their faculties in related genre fiction.
