Ever wonder what it was like for Robert Kirkman back before The Walking Dead turned into a monster TV hit? Back when it was just an indie comic book and no one knew whether the first issue that started it all would fly or flop? Us too!

That's why we got together with Kirkman for the first installment of Blastr Origin Stories and asked him what it was like to hold The Walking Dead #1 in his hands, how those first tentative conversations about turning the comic into a TV series went with showrunner Frank Darabont, and more. Check out the video below as Kirkman goes back to the beginning of it all.

And keep coming back for future episodes of Blastr Origin Stories as we talk to Neil Gaiman about start of Sandman, Katee Sackhoff about her first days with Battlestar Galactica, and more!

This clip, as well as all past and future episodes of BlastrTV, are also available in the Syfy Now app for iPhone and iPad, Syfy's Xbox app and Roku Channel. If you're looking to view this episode in the Blastr app, you can access it in the video section.
