The Walking Dead and Fables to become video games

Telltale Games (the people behind Sam & Max and the recent Back to the Future video games) have made a deal to create video games for both The Walking Dead (based on the TV show not the comic) and Fables. The games will be episodic, and should start to come out in about a year or so. For more detailed information, hit up some of the following blogs:

I'm pretty excited to hear this news, as I'm a big fan of The Walking Dead and I know Cathi is a big fan of Fables. There is always the possibility that these comics may not translate into video games very well, as there are many examples of people screwing up comics-related video games. However, I've been enjoying episode 1 of their Back to the Future game, so I'm somewhat hopeful that they can do the comics justice.
