Robert Kirkman Going “George Lucas” on “Walking Dead”?

And the award for the most unfortunate choice of words when discussing a genre property goes to, drumroll please, Robert Kirkman, for this quote:

“…it’s fun for me to look at it as a do-over. I can fiddle with things. I can play George Lucas, if you will, and I can think, ‘Well, what would happen if Shane had lived? How would that change things?'”

OK, OK, we know he’s not going to have a zombie shoot first or anything. But we do find it pretty funny that “George Lucas” is so synonymous with “mucking around with past installments of your plot” that even respected creators can say it. And, just in case the first season wasn’t a big hint, yeah, don’t get too attached to any of the characters. Although it’s not really a surprise the show won’t go to the hugely dark places the comic does; I don’t think HBO would be willing to go as dark as that.
