I had an absolute blast reading this book, because it’s such a perfect evocation of that action movie spirit.  The dialogue had me grinning all the way through – “I’m just a dead man with a shotgun.  And I have more rounds than you have monsters.”  “That’ll teach him to bring a spear to a gunfight.”  “Strictly a scientific question, but are you fireproof?”  It’s impossible not to hear Rutger Hauer or Lance Henriksen in your head when you read Walker’s dialogue.  It’s really rare to see this type of homage done so well in comics, and Dead Walker just nails that tone.  I mean, it’s a comic that features a chainsaw vs. scythe fight between two reanimated dead guys.  It’s pure, over-the-top fun.
