What would you say are the differences between the show and the comic?
KIRKMAN: I would say the show is definitely an expansion of what happens in the comic. The comic book focuses almost exclusively on Kyle Barnes and Rev. Anderson and some side characters here and there. But largely it focuses on those two characters. When it comes to the show, what we’re doing is expanding that world quite a bit, giving the characters much more to do and definitely rounding out the town of Rome, West Virginia, a little more — taking what’s in the comic and adding to it in some really cool and interesting ways. It’s not like The Walking Dead, where we do completely different things. There are some big differences to what we’re doing with Kyle and Anderson, but mostly it’s expanding and building around what exists in the comic series.
