Image of the Day: The entire history of comic books in 6 panels
Comic book fans are a diverse bunch, but they all have one dream in common: To develop superpowers, then use them to fight off a zombie uprising. But you don't have to look in the pages of comics to find amazing super abilities. Many real-world animals have powers that would make even Superman jealous.

Robert Kirkman's harrowing graphic adventure, the source material for AMC's much-lauded horror series, has captivated readers for years thanks to the eerie post-zombie-apocalypse world, the rich characters and his willingness to KILL those characters at the drop of a hat.

Last week, an original Todd McFarlane cover from Amazing Spider-Man 313 sold on eBay for $71,200. Apparently Todd wasn't aware of how much his creation was actually worth because early on in the auction he tweeted, "sold a Spidey cover I did years ago for about $700. It's now on EBAY for over $55,000! Guess I should have asked $800."
