When if comes to AMC’s The Walking Dead and HBO’s Game of Thrones, death is just a normal part of everyday life. Simply put the shows kill off lots and lots and lots of people, living and undead.
Knowing this, Reddit user nachorykaart decided to really dive into just how many deaths have happened on the two series. They went back and counted all of the deaths that have occurred, and broke it down into categories: Main Character Deaths, Side Character Deaths, Background Character Deaths, Non-Human Character Deaths, and finally Total Character Deaths and Death Percentages.
Which show do you think has more deaths? Find out in the infographic below!
One of my first pieces for Geeks of Doom 2 years ago was something for May the 4th called Luke Skywalker and the Hero’s Journey, tracing the Star Wars character’s path from the call to the return. Based on Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With A Thousand Faces, Luke was a textbook hero, with all the possible pitfalls along the way. Always looking for Campbell in modern heroes for teaching or for fun, I recently came across this awesome infographic from Venngage that breaks down the hero’s journey for 6 key characters in pop culture in a brightly colored, easy to follow swirl – Simba, Harry Potter, Frodo, Luke Skywalker, Neo, and Peter Parker.
I think this works for television heroes as well, and makes it so simple. Let’s try it on Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). I know he’s a comic book character, but I want to stick with The CW’s The Flash. Continue reading for more and to see the infographic.
Something happened during the season six finale of Game of Thrones, “The Winds of Winter,” relating to Jon Snow, and it both answered a major question and created a little confusion. If you’re all caught up, you know what I’m talking about.
Well, HBO has seen the confusion and apparently it was not something that was meant to be answered in a later episode. Instead, they’ve released a detailed infographic that clears everything up. For those of you who are not caught up, spoilers will be on display moving forward. For everyone else, you can check out the infographic below.
