Good Read: The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman

Product Description:

The Walking Dead is a monthly black-and-white American comic book series published by Image Comics beginning in 2003. The story chronicles the travels of a group of people trying to survive in a world stricken by a zombie apocalypse. The series won the 2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series at San Diego Comic-Con International. A television series was announced to be in production on August 11, 2009 and premiered on October 31, 2010 on AMC.

Matt Markgraf says:

“I’m generally not one to pick up a graphic novel without some prodding. I got hooked on The Walking Dead series on AMC and didn’t want to wait until October to find out what happens next, so I picked up the first volume of the massive graphic novel series. Two weeks later and over 1500 pages later, I’m on volume 10. The show barely scratches the surface. Also, many of the events and characters are completely different. It’s chock full of zombies, guns, sex and swearing, but its most interesting and important feature is its examination of survivalism, humanity and the will to live. If you’re reluctant to graphic novels like me, I highly recommend this intricate tale surrounding a zombie apocalypse. Also, one of the protagonists is a police officer from a small town in Kentucky!”
