'The Walking Dead' walks on Google Maps
As much as I’ve always loved the utility of Google maps, I never pegged it as a service applicable to pop culture. But, apparently, it is. See: this fantastic and spoiler-filled Google map geared entirely around The Walking Dead, also known as the coolest thing I’ve seen all day.
Jason McDonald created the completely annotated map, which chronicles the births, deaths, appearances, and other events and locations from the 78 issues of The Walking Dead comic book series. It’s certainly made me want to delve further into Robert Kirkman’s world — I find it pretty cool to see a comic-turned-TV series that’s so rooted in fantasy (zombies!) through a lens of something so familiar to my everyday existence. I’ve loved the Walking In Holden Caulfield’s Footsteps map, but this map takes it to the next level. Which other shows, books, or movies would you like to see get the Google map treatment?
Those of you who’ve read all The Walking Dead books, give it a look and sound off below as to the accuracy of the map, and those of you who are looking to avoid spoilers, check the map — and read the comments — with caution.
