I loved the TV show. So when the season is over, I buy a couple of these. Robert Kirkman is very good at drawing you in to this world. You get very attached to the characters and the idea of hope in a hopeless world.
This is not my type of book but it did get my teenage son to read a few of them from the series which is a miracle.
"The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled: no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living."
This was the first graphic novel to really grab my interest. I love it. I can read and reread this over and over again. It has such staying power and the story line is a page turner.
I could not put this down when I first purchased this. I bought this after I saw the first episode of the Walking Dead - which is based on this graphic novel.
I beg everyone to go out and buy a copy and read this. Best Zombie Story Ever!
