First Image From AMC’s The Walking Dead Sufficiently Disgusting

Were you worried that AMC's upcoming version of Robert Kirkman's zombie-filled Walking Dead comics would tone down the gore for squeamish basic-cable audiences unused to seeing exposed brains and torn-out throats in prime time? Well, you can probably stop. They've just released Dead's first promotional image, and it does indeed feature icky decayed flesh, black teeth, and a torn-out throat. It's obviously not quite as gory as some frames of the comic, but the show won't have its gruesomeness mitigated by a black-and-white color palette, either, so we're cool with this. Any grosser and we might not be able to watch.
