the walking dead season 3 poster 'The Walking Dead' releases first Season 3 poster ahead of Comic ConApparently there are three things you need to know about Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” and their names are Rick Grimes, Michonne and The Governor. At least if the newly-released first poster for the new season is any indication.

The poster, hitting the Interwebs just in time for Comic-Con and AMC’s “Walking Dead” marathon weekend, features a haggard (yet hot) Andrew Lincoln front-and-center, flanked by new characters Michonne (Danai Gurira) and The Governor (David Morrissey).

As for the vibe, showrunner Glen Mazzara paints this picture for EW:

“The entire landscape has fallen to zombies. The entire world has collapsed, the apocalypse has taken over, the zombies have taken over, there’s no safe place. And I think in the past our characters thought they could find some safe harbor, and now there’s just no good hiding place at all.”

So, you know, things are looking up.
