An infographical look at Walking Dead kills over three seasons

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Andrew Barr and Richard Johnson for the National Post took a detailed look at the who, what, and when of Walking Dead kills.

While AMC lets The Walking Dead gang take a short mid-season break — the Post’s Andrew Barr
and Richard Johnson look at a few of the key statistics of two-and-a-half season’s worth of undead mayhem. They find noteworthy — the gradual increase in the body count, the increasingly creative means of Zombie dispatch, and the fact that every character seems to have developed a clear enjoyment for putting the ambulatory cadavers down for good.

They also included weapons used, ranging from handgun to tree branch. See the full version here. Somewhere there’s a piece of paper with a ton of tally marks on it.

  • Where is Lori in this list? I believe that is another kill for Rick, and a Main Character Turned Zombie.

  • This is awesome!! I love info graphics and this is probably one of the most original ones ive seen in a while. I haven’t thought about how many they were killing. Definitely sharing this.

Think Like a Statistician – Without the Math

I call myself a statistician, because, well, I’m a statistics graduate student. However, the most important things I’ve learned are less formal, but have proven extremely useful when working/playing with data.
