INTERVIEW BY EVAN O. ALBERT
MC juggernaught The Walking Dead isn’t set to return til October, but Kentucky fans are set to celebrate native son, and Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman, on Aug. 6. Who died in the Season 6 finale, ‘Last Day on Earth’? In the comic books, it’s Glenn who meets the business end of archvillain Negan’s bat. On AMC? It’s anybody’s guess. But what was it about growing up in Kentucky that inspired Kirkman to create this apocalyptic survival fiction?
Kirkman says, “I grew up in a pretty rural area in Kentucky so I was often left to my own devices, watching horror movies, reading comic books and crafting my own stories and things like that. Just because, well you know, I like to say I didn’t have a lot of friends. Being left on my own out in the wilderness allowed me to be able to think about survival and things like that. Maybe that led to it. Kentucky is a beautiful, wonderful place and in no way inspired the zombie apocalypse, but I think there must be certain aspects about the way I grew up that made me think about those things.”
Kentucky might not have inspired the zombie apocalypse, but he agrees it does inform the distinct southern culture of both the comic and the series. “You see a lot of stories set out in Los Angeles and New York,” he says. “I thought it would be a lot more interesting to tell a story about Middle Americans. People that lives their lives. I’m fighting to try not to say ‘normal people’ but just average everyday people like I am. Firefighters, lawyers or whatever it’s a lot more interesting. The cast of The Walking Dead is from places like Kentucky and Georgia and places like that. They are very much more trying to survive than solve the problem. I think that made the story that much more interesting.” With the comic more than a decade old, and the series headed into its seventh season, fans of both know that The Walking Dead is all about the long game.

“Kentucky is a beautiful, wonderful place and in no way inspired the zombie apocalypse, but I think there must be certain aspects about the way I grew up that made me think about those things.” ROBERT KIRKMAN WALKING DEAD CREATOR Kirkman acknowledges, “It is a tremendous amount of work to keep it all straight. To know the backstories you’ve already told and bits of information about the characters that have already been revealed. Keeping track of that over the course of a story that in the comic book form has been told for nearly a decade now is somewhat of an arduous project. I will say that all the benefits to me greatly outweigh that. Being able to tell a long, involved story that unfolds over the course of many years and to be able to lay the groundwork for stories that will pay off years down the line is the most fun way of telling a story for me. I really enjoy being able to plan things out and to be able to set characters out and be able to build to huge impactful moments over the course of many years many issues and many episodes. It is so fulfilling to me that all of the work ends up being worth it.” Fans of both the show and the page also know that the paths of the two sometimes diverge, in a process not always solely controlled by the author.
He says, “I am in the writer’s room with a writing staff. We are all creative individuals and the fact that I worked on the
comic doesn’t give me any special treatment. We are adapting the comic book like any television show would adapt the source material. And when you are sitting there with a bunch of talented individuals and they are coming up with good ideas, I am wholeheartedly encouraging that kind of stuff. I am in the writer’s room essentially telling my story for the second time. Anytime there is something new that can get me excited about it, I feel like those changes are going to make the die hard fans of the comic book just as excited as it does me.” Kirkman is a tireless advocate for independent writers and creators rights.
He says, “This day and age is a time where creators in comics have fought for decades and decades to create a system that allows them to own their creations and profit from their creations in a way that in the ‘30s through the ‘70s just was not really possible. I think there is a tremendous amount of opportunity for creators to steer their own destiny. I think that’s what it’s really all about: being able to write your own stories freely and being able to control your own stories and have them benefit you, as opposed to have them benefit a larger corporation is something that I think is somewhat unique to comics. There is certainly not a television network owned by people who create TV shows; that kind of thing is unprecedented in the entertainment industry. I really like that more and more creators of things are taking advantage of that in comics.” Keeping pace with the demands of a hit series – and its West Coast-set spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead – is admittedly a juggling act for Kirkman, one he says is made easier by the fact that his career and his passions converge.
“I like to say that I have a job and that I have hobbies, and my hobbies are the exact same thing that I do as my job. The time normal people would spend doing work and then doing things that they enjoy and having fun, I just cram all those hours together and that’s my work. While I do work more than 40 hours a week and that does sometimes get a little taxing, I absolutely love everything that I am doing. When I

Hopefully, the last season cliffhanger won’t make the mural obsolete. have free time, the thing that I most of the time want to do is work on stuff.” The Walking Dead was nearly must-see TV for the peacock network, but they passed.
Kirkman recalls how it all began. “The famous film director, Frank Darabont who did The Shawshank Redemption, discovered The Walking Dead at some point in 2005 and thought that it would be good for a television show. He got NBC interested and ended up writing a pilot script for them, which they eventually passed on. Frank and I from that point on started talking to different networks here and there from time to time over the course over a number of years trying to get the project greenlit. We were turned away by pretty much every network in existence until at some point in 2009 Gale Ann Hurd became aware of the project and wanted to turn it into a TV show. She teamed up with Frank and I and brought AMC on board… and from there it was a hop skip and a jump to being on the air.”
WALKING DEAD DAY AUGUST 6 The Walking Dead Day will be celebrated Aug. 6, 2016 in Cynthiana, honoring one of Cynthiana’s favorite native sons, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

So, how long would Kirkman last in a zombie apocalypse, and what would his weapon of choice be?
His answer might surprise fans. He’s no katana-toting Michonne. “My weapon of choice would be a high building I would jump off of, just because the thought of hanging around and fighting zombies the rest of my life is completely unappealing to me. It would be terrifying and nerve wracking and I probably wouldn’t survive long and it would end up with me being eaten. I would probably check out pretty quickly. Before I did that I would probably use a baseball bat; it’s pretty simple. A sword sounds nice but I don’t really know how to use a sword … I’ve used a baseball bat before and I think that would be pretty deadly.”

Goat cheese cheesecake with blackberry basil coulis
It’s the perfect time for blackberries B
lackberry picking was a noble chore on our family farm in western Kentucky. During those blistering hot midsummer days, there were blackberries to be had and someone had to pick them. It was a rough and tumble business. You see, we didn’t grow blackberries on our old Kentucky farm. They simply arrived. Our blackberries grew in places my father’s bush hog couldn’t reach or mow. The tangled prickly brambles twisted through overgrown barbed wire fence rows, corner thickets, rugged ravines, crumbling abandoned farm buildings, and camouﬂaged critter camps. I was the fetcher of the blackberries. Ever mindful to leave the top berries for the birds while rustling up enough noise to ward off snakes, I was the hunter and gatherer of the summer ﬁeld berries. Outﬁtted in long sleeved ﬂannel shirts, heavy socks, and rolled up dungarees for protection, my pretend armor was a suffocating ruse. After every expedition, without fail, I hobbled home with ankle-high cockelburs, chiggers, deep scratches, bloody hands, and blackberries. A big win for an adventurous farm boy. During the weeks of blackberry season, the fruits of my labor brought on summer cobblers, pies, mufﬁns, pancake syrups, and macerated ice cream sauces. For those few ﬂeeting weeks, I felt like the noble prince of summer. Nowadays, I leave the picking to our hard working farmers. See you later snakes, thorns, chiggers, and bloody heat. Hello, sweet plump summer blackberries. Ripe for the picking at our local farmers’ markets. Goat Cheese Cheesecake With Blackberry Basil Coulis Any fruit or berry would pair beautifully with goat cheese cheesecake. Right now, blackberries are having their moment in the sun.
Coulis I tumbled 1 pint Pulaski County blackberries into a saucepan, added 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice, a pinch ground white pepper, and 3 whole fresh basil leaves. After cranking the heat to medium high to melt the sugar, I reduced the heat to a simmer and let it rip until the berries collapsed from the heat. When the blackberries released their juices and disintegrated into the sauce, I pulled the coulis from the heat, strained it through a ﬁne mesh strainer, discarded the basil-ﬂecked pulp, and set the coulis aside to cool. Crust. To add a subtle savory bent, I crushed 3 tablespoons shelled pistachios in a food processor before tossing them with 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs and 3 tablespoons melted butter. After buttering 8 individual 4 ounce ramekins, I spooned the crumb mixture into each ramekin, tamped the buttered crumbs ﬁrmly into the edges, slid the ramekins into a 325 degree oven for 8 minutes, and pulled them from the oven to cool. Filling. A fun little ride on the wild side. After bringing 11 ounces cream cheese and 4 ounces goat cheese to room temperature, I tossed both into a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, I beat the cheeses together for 2 to 3 minutes before adding 2 Elmwood Stock Farm eggs (one at a time until incorporated), 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons sour cream, and a pinch of salt. To ensure maximum creaminess, I beat the ﬁlling on medium speed for 10 full minutes before carefully ﬁlling each buttered cup. After placing the ramekins into a hot water bath, I carefully slid them into a preheated 300 degree oven for 24 minutes, pulled them from the oven, let the cheesecakes rest in the water bath for 10 minutes, and transferred them to a wire rack to cool completely before sliding them into the refrigerator to chill overnight.

But I do want you to know that every prediction is warranted by the astrological omens. Ready for the onslaught? 1. In the coming weeks, you could fall forever out of love with a wasteful obsession. 2. You might also start falling in love with a healthy obsession. 3. You can half-accidentally snag a blessing you have been half-afraid to want. 4. You could recall a catalytic truth whose absence has been causing you a problem ever since you forgot it. 5. You could reclaim the mojo that you squandered when you pushed yourself too hard a few months ago. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): August is Adopta-Taurus month. It’s for all of your tribe, not just the orphans and exiles and disowned rebels. Even if you have exemplary parents, the current astrological omens suggest that you require additional support and guidance from wise elders. So I urge you to be audacious in rounding up trustworthy guardians and benefactors. Go in search of mentors and fairy godmothers. Ask for advice from heroes who are further along the path that you’d like to follow. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): When a parasite or other irritant slips inside an oyster’s shell, the mollusk’s immune system besieges the intruder with successive layers of calcium carbonate. Eventually, a pearl may form. I suspect that this is a useful metaphor for you to contemplate in the coming days as you deal with the salt in your wound or the splinter in your skin. Before you jump to any conclusions, though, let me clarify. This is not a case of the platitude, “Whatever doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.” Keep in mind that the pearl is a symbol of beauty and value, not strength. CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s your lucky day! Spiritual counsel comparable to what you’re reading here usually sells for $99.95. But because you’re showing signs that you’re primed to outwit bad habits, I’m offering it at no cost. I want to encourage you! Below are my ideas for what you should focus on. (But keep in mind that I don’t expect you to achieve absolute perfection.) 1. Wean yourself from indulging in self-pity and romanticized pessimism. 2. Withdraw from connections with people who harbor negative images of you. 3. Transcend low expectations wherever you see them in play. 4. Don’t give your precious life energy to demoralizing ideas and sour opinions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re not doing a baby chick a favor by helping it hatch. For the sake of its well-being, the bird needs to peck its way out of the egg. It’s got to exert all of its vigor and willpower in starting its new life. That’s a good metaphor for you to meditate on. As you escape from your comfortable womb-jail and launch yourself toward inspiration, it’s best to rely as much as possible on your own instincts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I hear you’re growing weary of wrestling with ghosts. Is that true? I hope so. The moment you give up the fruitless struggle, you’ll become eligible for a unique kind of freedom that you have not previously imagined. Here’s another rumor I’ve caught wind of: You’re getting bored with an old source of sadness that you’ve used to motivate yourself for a long time. I hope that’s true, too. As soon as you shed your allegiance to the sadness, you will awaken to a sparkling font of comfort you’ve been blind to. Here’s one more story I’ve picked up through the grapevine: You’re close to realizing that your attention to a mediocre
treasure has diverted you from a more pleasurable treasure. Hallelujah! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Could it be true that the way out is the same as the way in? And that the socalled “wrong” answer is almost indistinguishable from the right answer? And that success, at least the kind of success that really matters, can only happen if you adopt an upside-down, inside-out perspective? In my opinion, the righteous answer to all these questions is “YESSS???!!!” — at least for now. I suspect that the most helpful approach will never be as simple or as hard as you might be inclined to believe. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your strength seems to make some people uncomfortable. I don’t want that to become a problem for you. Maybe you could get away with toning down your potency at other times, but not now. It would be sinful to act as if you’re not as competent and committed to excellence as you are. But having said that, I also urge you to monitor your behavior for excess pride. Some of the resistance you face when you express your true glory may be due to the shadows cast by your true glory. You could be tempted to believe that your honorable intentions excuse secretive manipulations. So please work on wielding your clout with maximum compassion and responsibility. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Did you honestly imagine that there would eventually come a future when you’d have your loved ones fully “trained”? Did you fantasize that sooner or later you could get them under control, purged of their imperfections and telepathically responsive to your every mood? If so, now is a good time to face the fact that those longings will never be fulfilled. You finally have the equanimity to accept your loved ones exactly as they are. Uncoincidentally, this adjustment will make you smarter about how to stir up soulful joy in your intimate relationships. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may experience a divine visitation as you clean a toilet in the coming weeks. You might get a glimpse of a solution to a nagging problem while you’re petting a donkey or paying your bills or waiting in a long line at the bank. Catch my drift, Capricorn? I may or may not be speaking metaphorically here. You could meditate up a perfect storm as you devour a doughnut. While flying high over the earth in a dream, you might spy a treasure hidden in a pile of trash down below. If I were going to give your immediate future a mythic title, it might be “Finding the Sacred in the Midst of the Profane.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’ve worked hard for many years to dismantle my prejudices. To my credit, I have even managed to cultivate compassion for people I previously demonized, like evangelical Christians, drunken jocks, arrogant gurus, and career politicians. But I must confess that there’s still one group toward which I’m bigoted: super-rich bankers. I wish I could extend to them at least a modicum of amiable impartiality. How about you, Aquarius? Do you harbor any hidebound biases that shrink your ability to see life as it truly is? Have you so thoroughly rationalized certain narrow-minded perspectives and judgmental preconceptions that your mind is permanently closed? If so, now is a favorable time to dissolve the barriers and stretch your imagination way beyond its previous limits. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Are you lingering at the crux of the crossroads, restless to move on but unsure of which direction will lead you to your sweet destiny? Are there too many theories swimming around in your brain, clogging up your intuition? Have you absorbed the opinions of so many “experts” that you’ve lost contact with your own core values? It’s time to change all that. You’re ready to quietly explode in a calm burst of practical lucidity. First steps: Tune out all the noise. Shed all the rationalizations. Purge all the worries. Ask yourself, “What is the path with heart?”
