Shane Walsh: The Walking Dead. Let’s be honest you love him, you hate him, you love to hate him.
It’s just one of the things that most zombie shows need. They need a jerk. They need somebody who’s going to create a problem so that eventually all the zombies can come in and kill the humans. After all if all the humans worked happily together and cooperated then the zombies would never have a chance…. That would be boring.
So you need Shane Walsh, every zombie movie, tv show, or zombie comic needs a Shane to keep the carnage going.
I thought about this when making my zombie comic. Who was going to be “The Jerk?” Then I realized that all my characters were jerks… I like to think of them as lovable jerks though.
