You Can Visit The Small Town In Kentucky That Inspired The Walking Dead

Kentucky is a state that’s inspired many things over the years, including popular songs, books, movies, and TV shows. One of the most recent inspirations derived from the small town of Cynthiana, where Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore are from. If you don’t recognize those names, then chances are you are not also from this city and/or you are not a fan of the wildly popular AMC show, ‘The Walking Dead.’ These two Cynthiana natives are the creator and artist of this comic book series turned sci-fi TV show, and you can visit this small town in Kentucky that inspired it all.
