puts a spin on how you look at the real world and how horrible people can be to each other in times of a crisis

Say goodbye to your free time

I watched all four seasons and I can honestly say that the comics are way better. It helps dip into a lot more psychological issues. It also feels like a much different story with and without characters from the show. Though the basic plot line stays the same, survival. It's more than just guts and gore it's about the struggle to survive in a world turned upside down by a catastrophic event.

It really shows how much they hold out for hope, while still understanding the severity of the situation. The communication between carl and Sophia is so simple, yet so complicated in matters that are difficult for seven year olds to understand. I enjoyed the way they they incorporated each persons personal stories. I would have liked to know more about Andrea and Amy, but maybe more will be said in a future comic.

It's an extremely addicting book. I read it in an hour, that's how amazing it was. I'm going crazy waiting until tomorrow to get volume two. It's a comic that will devour your time. I personally recommend it to anyone who likes thrill and suspense. It's truly an awesome start to the series.

Get Ready to Be Addicted

I was introduced to "The Walking Dead" series when my sister brought home the first season of the TV adaption. I loved it so much I thought I should begin reading the graphic novels. I'm really glad I did. This is an excellent series that keeps you on your toes. You never know who's going to survive or not. Yet, I love this series because it also explores human nature and the psychological aspects of what societal breakdown does to people. Warning: once you start reading this series, you will begin to prepare for the zombie apocalypse.


I had trouble adjusting to the changes in artwork, but the story was great.

Walking Dead

A great start to the series. I love how an understanding of the new zombie world is revealed to you as slowly as it is to Rick. You don't know how bad the epidemic is, how intelligent the zombies are, what made them undead, or if there is any place worth running to. A suspenseful and fast moving read.

You will devour this series

Not one to generally take much interest in graphic novels, this came to my attention via the AV Club in an article about how AMC (Madmen, Breaking Bad) is turning this series into a live-action show. I was intrigued enough to check this series out.

I'm glad I did.

There are so many levels of enjoyment here. The storytelling, the art, the writing. And for those who think of the worst case scenario, as realistic a depiction of what life would be like if zombies took over the world as you'll find anywhere.

This series is not afraid to kill off its characters, and many of the characters evolve (more like devolve) from book to book.There is quite a bit of action in these books, but also quite a bit of character development.

One interesting aspect is the limited knowledge the surviving characters have as to their situation. The lead character wakes from a coma to a near-empty world.Most of the characters have the limited information they were given before communications ceased. Many think that if they were to make it to the cities like the government told them to, they would be rescued. However, the cities were the hardest hit and now completely unsafe.

This brings up another point, when it comes to our own survival, how much should we rely on our government and others? There comes a point when we need to start being responsible for our own lives. Just how soft have we become in our day-to-day lives? What will it take for us to really start living?

"The Walking Dead" provides a lot of food for thought, and if you read it before bed, a fuel for some bad nightmares.
