The first clip of The Walking Dead season 3 is here, and it just happens to feature the first real look at Michonne in action (and not, you know, off camera or obscured by a hood) and by action I mean cutting off a lot of zombies’ heads in order to get some aspirin. You know, as much as WD picked up in the second half of the second season — admittedly after showrunner Frank Darabont was shitcanned — I’m really looking forward to season 3. The fact that zombie deaths by katana are going to go up 100% is just icing on the cake. (Via Uproxx)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
