AMC has announced that Emmy Award-winning make-up effects artist Greg Nicotero has been named a co-executive producer of The Walking Dead.

Nicotero has also signed a first-look deal with the network, which gives him the opportunity to bring his own projects to AMC. At Saturday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Nicotero won Best Prosthetic Make-up for The Walking Dead. Nicotero also directed a series of webisodes this season and is set to direct an episode of the show.

"Greg's talent extends well beyond the word of special fx makeup," said Joel Stillerman, AMC's SVP of original programming, production and digital content. "He is also a truly talented director, and has an incredibly comprehensive understanding and appreciation for great storytelling. His knowledge and respect for the genre is unparalleled, and we are looking forward to expanding our relationship with him with an eye towards developing more great original series."

Nicotero, who co-owns KNB Efx Group, premiered his film The United Mosnter Talent Agency on AMC's Fearfest last Halloween. He began his career on Day of the Dead in 1985 and as of this year has been involved in nearly 800 feature films.

The six-episode web series begins on Oct. 3. Produced by Generate, and conceived and directed by Nicotero and written by John Esposito, the webisodes tell an "origin" story of a woman's struggle to survive and to protect her family as the world begins to fall apart. Viewers will have the opportunity to explore the back story of one of the most celebrated "walkers" last season. It focuses on "Bicycle Girl," the infamous zombie from season one, who was shot by Rick Grimes in the pilot episode.

Nicotero said, "Working on The Walking Dead with such a fantastic cast and crew has been an amazing opportunity, and to have our contribution to the show celebrated is a tremendous compliment. I have always felt like the show had a cinematic feel and everyone involved is dedicated to making this show something special. To be able to branch out and to develop not only the web series but also genre material is something I have always wanted to do; given the people I have had the pleasure of working with over the last 23 years."


Image Comics has announced a Dec. 12 release for The Last Battle, an 80-page graphic novel from writer Tito Faraci and artist Dan Brereton.

Here's how Image describes the book:

"The Last Battle, set in 52 BCE Gaul, begins as CaesarŐs forces lay siege to the barbarian stronghold of Alesia in a battle which would forever change history; while the rebel Cammius, who once fought for Rome, leads a second barbarian army to attack the combined Legions of Rome from behind. Caesar dispatches his favorite general, Caius Rodius, to track through the untamed countryside, and bring back the rebelŐs head. Who better to hunt Cammius, than the man who taught him the very skills he now uses to defy Rome? Tasked by a power-hungry leader he no longer trusts, to murder the man he raised as a son, Rodius questions whether the Roman 'road of stone and blood' is a path he still wants to follow.

"The Last Battle has been translated in many languages, and found great success in Italy, Germany, Spain, Brazil and more, but has not yet been available in English. Image Comics is now proud to introduce The Last Battle to American readers."

"The 'peplum' or 'sword and sandals' genre was very popular in Italy, mostly in the seventies," Faraci said. "As a child my imagination was formed by the gladiators, centurions, slaves, rebels and charming maidservants of those films. As a student, I studied, learning how the ancient world truly was... and found it fascinating. In The Last Battle, I tried to transmit the 'peplum' emotions of my youth with a correct, trustworthy historical approach."

"This project required me to be as well-versed in Roman and Celtic history as I could be to create the visual authenticity required for Tito's script," Brereton said. "An added layer of truth in Tito's script spurred my research and made the story that much more exciting to illustrate for me, and I believe readers will become as immersed in this ancient world as I was painting it."
