Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) September 8, 2010
New online fan-site for comic and TV series "The Walking Dead" focuses on community and social interaction.
Fans of the Robert Kirkman's zombie epic and upcoming AMC TV Series "The Walking Dead" can find a new home on RoamersAndLurkers.com to interact, connect and share their thoughts on the comic, the television series, and their love for the zombie genre. Focusing primarily on the community, ALJO Media created RoamersAndLurkers.com as a departure from other TWD sites where fans typically comment on featured articles from one author, yet can't really interact with each other. At RoamersAndLurkers.com, fans from all over the world create the conversation.
The website derives its name from two types of zombies in the ongoing story dubbed "roamers", which chase victims, and "lurkers" who wait for victims to come close. Users of the website can discuss topics on the forums, create user groups, add friends, private message other users, and add events as well as contribute news and views to the Roamers Blog (http://blog.roamersandlurkers.com/). Users will be able to register directly with the site, or connect via Facebook or Twitter, potentially connecting with thousands of other fans.
"I'm a big fan of the comic book," says Robert Garcia, founder of RoamersAndLurkers.com, "and when I went online to find other fans, I found some really great fan-sites, but none that really featured what I was looking for. I wanted to create the conversation. That started me thinking on different ways fans of a show or book can interact and connect, like creating groups based on cities or towns, or creating meetups, or connecting via Facebook or Twitter. The solution I settled on is one of the most proven online forum systems available, and features everything I wanted to use, and ultimately what I think the users will enjoy. RoamersAndLurkers.com is about the fans, and they take the site where they want it to go."
RoamersAndLurkers.com went live online on Monday, August 30th, 2010. Users can register and begin using the site immediately.
RoamersAndLurkers.com ( http://www.roamersandlurkers.com/ ) is an online community of fans of Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" and AMC's TV Series of the same name that serves visitors from all over the world. It empowers them to create online conversations, connect with other users, and form groups from across the world.
