NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — ‘The Walking Dead’ returns Sunday night.

Television’s creepiest hit promises to take our tired and tortured band of not-so-merry survivors into a much darker place.

Robert Kirkman created the comic book the series is based on, and is a writer and producer on the show. He’s also the biggest name in comics right now.

He took a break from New York Comic Con to join us on The Couch on Friday.
