In other words, the meaning of a text is constantly being constructed by the readers based on previous interpretations of other texts. To put it into the Marxist terminology deployed by Kristeva, the text is in production and the reader, author, and analyst join in on the continual production of meaning , p. Jonathan Gray offers further insight into intertextuality through the lens of textual phenomenology. In other words, Gray is looking at how a text becomes a text, rather than the content of said text.

With paratexts, Genette was referring to book covers, typefaces, headings, and so forth. Gray contemporizes the word paratext by also including contingent media such as comic books, novels, prequels, sequels, and toys to the list of items that can help assist in the meaning or understanding of a text.

Ott and Walter have also illustrated the different uses for paratext. They demonstrated that intertextuality is an interpretive practice by the reader of a text, and then lay out the framework for the strategic practice by the authors to make specific connections to other texts. The use of transmedia storytelling is illustrated by Henry Jenkins in his book Convergence Culture when he discusses the Matrix phenomenon.

Jenkins makes the case that all texts movie, games, and comics in the Matrix franchise work in conjunction with each other to create a complete understanding of the Matrix story This concept allows for participants to navigate and master as much of the fictional world as they can, thus allowing for more direct engagement with The Walking Dead universe.

The similarities to the opening of a movie or TV show are fairly typical of any contemporary video game; what is worth noting about this scene lies within the art direction and typeface. The first text you see in the game is in the very same typeface that is used throughout the comic book series, and all of the lettering in the game world resembling the font used in the comic books.

For instance, when the group of survivors arrives at Everett Pharmacy the typeface can be discerned on signs inside and outside the building. The game is introduced with a full screen rendering of the same logo found on the comic book covers.

Telltale could have obtained the font and logo from the television series—which is different than the comics—or even created their own original font and logo, yet what we see is the first purposeful usage of a visual cue that creates a link between the game and the comics.

When the logo fades, we see the Savannah highway and then Lee Everett, all while being given our second visual cue—cel shading. Cel shading is type of non-photorealistic image rendering where artists use specific tools to make 3D models look more like hand-drawn images Hachigian, n.

Jet Set Radio was one of the early video games which employed this type of rendering, but it was considered to be more cartoon-like than comic Gamespot, However, the release of Viewtiful Joe made cel shading synonymous with games attempting to mimic the style of comic books.

The 3D zombies provides the most vivid example of aesthetic convergence. Telltale manages to capture and animate the grotesque monsters in a way that is visually reflective of the comics. The cel shaded aesthetic carries throughout the entire game since it is.

The visual cues players are exposed to in the first moments of the game, and then throughout the entirety of season one, serve the purpose of self-reflexive inclusion. The use of cel shading technology as well as the comments by Dan Connors and Robert Kirkman make it quite clear that the game is meant to have the aesthetic appeal of the comic series. Therefore the game is integrating and appropriating the art style of the comics. The typeface is also self-reflexive reference to the comic book series and elicits a different understanding of the culture, history, and functioning of the world than if the typeface of the television show was present.

Telltale is visually reminding the player that this is, indeed, the world created by the comic book. The visual connection between the game and the comic book also sets it apart from the television series.

For instance, if the game should have been based in the narrative world of the television series, key scenes from the game would have contradicting meaning to fans of the television show.

By including the art style of the comic and referencing the comic book throughout the game with the typeface, Telltale is visually assisting players to access the transmedia story between comic and game.

Not surprisingly, they are aesthetically similar to their depictions in the comic, but also serve a larger purpose within the game universe. First, they serve to make a connection between the game and the comics. Second, they reward players by adding new knowledge to the canon of the comics.

The first crossover character that players meet is Shawn Greene, the son of Hershel Greene.

The Walking Dead (Comic Series)

Shawn is on the streets of Savannah and is in need of assistance. At the farm, the players find Hershel. After an introductory exchange with Lee, Hershel allows them to stay in the barn with another family who is seeking refuge for the night. The other family consists of Kenny, his wife Katjaa, and son Kenny junior, who is affectionately nicknamed Duck; the family goes on to play a crucial role in The Walking Dead game. From here, players can perform a series of tasks or choose to have conversations with the new characters they meet.

After performing certain tasks, Lee hears screams coming from Shawn and Duck who have been working together.

Lee rushes to the tractor that they were working on, and sees that the tractor has pinned Shawn to the ground by running over his leg. To make matters worse, zombies have grabbed Duck and are inching towards Shawn.

Players are then prompted to make a decision—to save Shawn or save Duck. Players only have a few moments to make a decision. After hearing the commotion, Hershel sees that his son has been bitten, throws the refugees off the farm, and mourns the death of his son. Shortly after these events, players meet Glenn Rhee. He is the member of a survivor group that is in Macon, Georgia. Glenn is with several other survivors who have been camping out there for an indeterminate amount of time.

Glenn volunteers to go on a supply run, something he is known for doing in the comics, and ends up getting trapped at a local hotel. He hides out in an icebox until Lee and another survivor venture out to find him. Once they do, Glenn brings attention to crying coming from one of the hotel rooms.

Glenn convinces Lee and the other survivor to try and help the person who seems to be in distress. Even though the trio helps the crying survivor, it turns out she has been bitten by a zombie and she commits suicide.

This is the last time Glenn is heard from in the game. Indeed, moves like this allow for players who have little or no knowledge of the The Walking Dead comics to experience the game.

This is important to keep in mind, as the narrative in the comics does not begin until about a month later when Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma. In other words, players are being exposed to a point in time that has not been addressed previously. These character crossovers assist players in making the connection between the comic series and the game, and rewards players by revealing previously unknown information about certain characters. In the comics, information regarding the backstory of these characters is vague or nonexistent, especially in the case of the Greene family.

By the time Hershel is introduced in the comics, Shawn has already died and there is never much discussion as to how that had happened. In the game, however, players can be a part of that moment and watch it unfold right before their eyes.

By folding the Greene family backstory into the game, players can learn more about characters that have played a large role in the comic series, thus expanding their knowledge of The Walking Dead canon. The audience is able to fill in more of the characters story by his appearance in the first episode of the game.

The game plays an important role in explaining the background of important events which have gone untouched otherwise, as well as expanding upon the history of certain characters. The revealing of information is also done in such a way that the game makes a unique contribution to The Walking Dead transmedia experience, without disrupting the experience if the game it is not engaged with by all of the audience.

Much like the use of similar aesthetics, the inclusion of characters serves to maintain the relationship with the comic books, as well as rewarding the players with additional information about the comic book canon. To further this concept, I would assert that from a transmedia storytelling perspective, the reward is the additional special knowledge embedded in the narrative which contains intertextual references. This expansion or change for the audience is a reward for their mastery over the main text, in this case, the comic book series.

One of the most important concepts of transmedia storytelling is world building Norrington, In order to achieve this without being just a supplementary text to the comics, Telltale focused on the Macon survivor group while the comics focus on the Atlanta survivor group, hence the lack of continued crossovers. Players are rewarded for exploring a new part of The Walking Dead universe and then are taken on a contingent but separate journey. Nonetheless, Telltale calls upon the anamnesis of Rick and Carl Grimes to strengthen and maintain the association.

At the very start of the game players learn that Lee Everett is on his way to prison for murder. At first this may seem diametric to Rick given he was a police officer prior to the apocalypse, but as the game carries forth their similarities become evident.

Within the first few minutes of the game starting, after the previously described opening scene, Lee is involved in a car crash and is knocked unconscious for, presumably, three days. When Lee wakes up he is injured, the driver has been thrown from the car while Lee is trapped in the backseat, groggy and in pain.

Lee is unaware of the zombie crisis until the undead driver lunges toward him after struggling to escape the police cruiser. Rick awakens from a coma in a hospital.

Little does he know the zombie epidemic has taken place, his only safety being the confines of his hospital room. He is still in pain and calls for a nurse but receives no response. After struggling through the pain and finding his clothes, he changes from his hospital gown and leaves the hospital room where he encounters zombies for the first time.

Both characters awoke to this new world in pain, struggling, and uncertain of what is going on in the world. As the game progresses, more and more associations become evident.

One that progresses through most of the game and is quite complex is the relationship between Lee and Clementine. I may change my mind eventually. So yes I do know Was it like a plague or a rapture kind of thing? Kirkman responded: That starts to get into the origin of all this stuff, and I think that's unimportant to the series itself. There will be smaller answers as things progress Now, Issue 38 in the book it's still only like June at this point If you're keeping track.

But that doesn't mean it's in the book I don't want to be specific it also smells funny in there. Like in Canada, or even overseas? Response: We'll only see what's going on if the characters we're following go there. So we'd never randomly cut to Canada or anywhere, randomly. So it's likely we're not going to see most of the world.

If that somehow happens as a result of reading this comic that's great, but really What you now hold in your hands is the most serious piece of work I've done so far in my career. I'm the guy that created Battle Pope; I hope you guys realize what a stretch this is for me.

It's really not that hard to believe me when you realize that I'm diving into subject matter that is so utterly serious and dramatic. To me, the best zombie movies aren't the splatter fests of gore and violence with goofy characters and tongue in cheek antics.

Good zombies movies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too That's what makes Romero films so great.

I'm in this for the long haul, and I'm pretty sure Tony is too. You guy are going to see Rick change and mature to the point that when you look back on this issue you won't even recognize him. I hope you guys are looking forward to a sprawling epic, because that's the idea of this one. So, if anything scares you But this is NOT a horror book. I like the term "survivalist adventure. This book is more about watching Rick survive than it is about watching zombies pop around the corner and scare you.

I hope that's what you guys are into.Rick asks Andrea what they should do. They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too It won't be more than a month.

These differences, however, are juxtaposed by striking similarities in the relationship that the duos share. Volume No Way Out Issues 79—84 Rick and company step up as community leaders despite objections from some of its residents.
