You need brains to work on AMC’s zombie show The Walking Dead. And special effects wizard Greg Nicotero is one of the folks responsible for making sure those brains get sprayed around in just the right way.
You can see Nicotero going about his grisly work in the photograph after the jump. The image is one of the never-before-seen shots from new book, The Walking Dead Chronicles: The Official Companion Book. The tome details the making of the show’s first season and also features set designs, storyboards, page-to-screen comparisons to the comics, an introduction by Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman, and a foreword by now departed showrunner Frank Darabont (needless to say, it will be interesting to see how any second volume of the Chronicles deals with that departure).
The Walking Dead Chronicles is available to buy now, while the show itself returns to AMC on October 16.
