Who is Viskocil, and why do they have a public library in their name on The Walking Dead? 

Well, the name refers to Joe Viskocil, a special effects guru who worked on a number of huge films, including Star Wars and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He won an Oscar for his work on Independence Day, while he was responsible for helping create the Death Star explosion in A New Hope. 

Sadly he passed away in 2014, but Greg Nicotero - who worked with him on Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III - has taken this opportunity to pay a little tribute to him. 


NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
