The Running Dead
Mike and Ming participate in a 5K zombie run for Kevin's charity. Walt buys an unusual item containing signatures from the 1966 Batman TV show.
Comic Book Men returns to AMC Sunday, February 14 at Midnight/11c.
Michael and Ming decide to raise some money for Kevin Smith's The Wayne Foundation by signing up for Run For Your Lives, a 5K (3.1 mile) obstacle course race with a unique twist: in addition to navigating various obstacles, participants are also chased by zombies throughout the course. Though Ming has some running experience, Michael has never run a race before, so Bryan volunteers to train them, putting them through an unorthodox regimen that includes bench pressing boxes of comic books and a Rocky III-style footrace on the Jersey shore. On race day, Michael becomes winded after the very first obstacle and Ming is genuinely frightened by the zombies, but after climbing over walls, crawling under obstacles, trekking through mud, and avoiding the undead, both make it to the finish line. Meanwhile, back at the Secret Stash, Walt negotiates the purchase of a baseball signed by the cast of the 1960s Batman TV show, as well as an unopened box of Batman cereal from 1989. Walt also turns down a chance to buy a damaged copy of Sheena, Queen of the Jungle #2, and is unable to close a deal on The House of Secrets #92, which features the first appearance of Swamp Thing.
