How many hours are in a day when you don t spend half of them watching television When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED The world we knew is gone.The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.An epidemicHow many hours are in a day when you don t spend half of them watching television When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED The world we knew is gone.The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living.In a matter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 government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.

  1. This is so, so, so, so good It doesn t try to be disgusting and it doesn t mainly focus on the zombies, surprisingly It s about the little community of survivors and their relationships, their helping each other out, their trying to find a way out of this pit of death I felt desolate to see some characters gone too soon or left behind, but I have some hope of seeing new ones in the future that will make me stop missing the departed ones.Great, great comic series.

  2. This review contains spoilers for both the tv show season 1 2 and the graphic novel.I absolutely loved the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, so I decided why not give the comic books a chance And I was not disappointed This volume brought back so many memories of the show for me and reminded me of just how much I loved it even with the jump scares But The Walking Dead doesn t only focus on the gore of killing zombies, it also explores how people deal with extreme situations and how these ev [...]

  3. 4.0 stars You can see by the ratings and the other reviews of this book that a lot of people think very highly of this series and it is certainly justified This is the kind of excellence in both writing and art that make the graphic novel an incredibly power medium when it is done well Here is done very well indeed The writing and the art are superb and I don t think you could ask for better.Basically, the set up is very familiar It is a zombie apocalypse, society has broken down and the walking [...]

  4. Kudos to Image Comics for saving all that money on a colorist better, Erica I get it, I get it I m frugal, too In fact, view spoiler We just got back from a family vacation And the entire time, I couldn t get my youngest to eat anything they served for breakfast at the place we were staying And they had EVERYTHING there Waffles with strawberries and whipped creamm.But she s 6, and none of it tasted like Mommy s food.On day 3, I spied their stash of Froot Loops.Yes We re SAVED Or not Cause she sp [...]

  5. I wanted to really like volume one of The Walking Dead Most people do like it They like it a lot I didn t, which doesn t make anyone better or smarter than anyone else, we just have different tastes.I appreciate Robert Kirkman wanting to write a social commentary and not just a horror story, but I don t know that he needs to state this in the introduction all good zombie and horror stories are dealing with than just the surface material, so Kirkman emphasizing his social commentary sounds like [...]

  7. Whether you re a comic book fan or a television buff, one thing remains certain Rick Grimes is a badass He s resourceful too, a real survivor When other members of the fledgling group are panicking and running around like headless chickens, he acts When they argue about the next move they should take or which option is safest, Rick, again, acts He doesn t mess about You ve got to give it to the small town sheriff, he quickly realises what he must do to keep his family alive And it isn t pretty S [...]

  8. WrensReads Review So I am reading the first compendium again so I can read the second and the third This time, I will rate them by the volume that they are.If you have seen the first second episode of the show, you basically know what goes on in the first volume with some minor changes Someone lives, some characters don t exist and some characters aren t in the show.The zombie apocalypse is upon the characters in this book and they have never heard the word zombie A lone police officer wakes up [...]

  9. I have to believe that readers of dystopian fiction or apocalyptic fiction harbour the belief that the world bound by the printer s ink is definitely looming would one day come true Or at the very least hope it does I myself cannot stop from venturing into the implications of the dawn of the walking dead see what I did there Too obvious What would I do first Ah the possibilities Of course the romance would strip away if such a dawn actually arrivestut tut tut I would possibly first have to numb [...]

  10. Okay, is this where the random bolding phenomenon is coming from Have you all known this and not told me Is it just so you can laugh behind my back See I can t even randomly bold if I try It always ends up being for emphasis This book is about don t give kids guns That s pretty much it But, sometimes, you know zombie apocalypse sounds like a good idea to give a kid a gun And if you think that, you re an idiot.My dad used to keep a lot of guns in the house at one particularly precarious point i [...]

  11. We are amidst a Zombie phenomena, well they have been around since that movie Night of the Living Dead, But did not have as much coverage, there is so many novels and movies now with a zombie theme.Some neat artwork here representing a zombie gore feast of a struggle for a band of humans against the odds for survival.This is as most people know the genisis of the tv series of the same name I have watched one episode with some reservations due to the gore level and wanted to read the graphic nove [...]

  12. I really liked this I ve watched a few of the first episodes on TV, and honestly I liked this so much Maybe it s because I m a baby and I don t think the zombies look as scary as in the show Maybe that s part of the reason But this was really good

  13. It s not the same as killing the dead ones, Daddy It never should be, son.It never should be I m so glad I finally decided to read the comic It was so powerful to have depth and layers to the story, and the comic form is as addictive as the series It is basically the same story in both but it still gave me the feels.I felt peace, hope and calmI felt pain, sorrow and griefI felt hatred, heartbreak and disappointmentIt is so weird to see the character so unaware of what will happen next, not kno [...]

  14. For everyone not in the know I have a soft spot for apocalyptic fiction My first SF read as a burgeoning nerd was The Day of the Triffids It certainly moulded me into the reader that I am today But although these stories are fiction, the scientifically removed from reality zombie type apocalypse is by far not my favourite Nuclear fallout, deadly virus, environmental collapse these all seem entirely plausible But there is no precedence for zombies despite fans holding onto the parasites of insec [...]

  15. I m a complete amateur when it comes to this stuff, but I m really enjoying my time exploring comics and graphic novels It s hard to rate them because I don t have anything else to really compare them against since I ve only read two, so four stars is my baseline for now I watched the first few seasons of the show, but then I lost interest when they just wandered around a farm for episode after episode I get bored easily so I moved on to something else, probably Breaking Bad or something, I don [...]

  16. I think some of the pleasure of reading this graphic novel was taken away from watching the first two seasons of the TV series There obviously weren t that many surprises and I would say 75% of the graphic novel was like several of the episodes Without giving spoilers I d say certain parts of the TV series were better Probably because they built on the comic which came first Then again, some instances of the graphic novel were better than the series so I don t feel I m biased towards one or the [...]

  17. I m also one of the stooges who came to the party late That s to say, I watched the series before reading the book, or graphic novel to be exact Heck, when I purchased the complete season one I wasn t even aware that it was based on a book Now, when something like this happens, there is absolutely no way to undo it There is no way to un remember the visual medium and any first impressions, so it s all spilt milk.But it is every goodreader s sworn duty, if you ve enjoyed the show, to read the boo [...]

  18. A completely inappropriate birthday gift for someone with necrofobia or pseudonecrofobia or hemi necrofobia or pauci animafobia.Well written Vividly, horrifically, in my opinion poorly illustrated with images that stalk and haunt my waking dreams.I vote NO.I have tried to destroy, give away and recycle this book but it keeps showing up on my shelf It will not die I store a copy of the Zombie Survival Guide next to it and it seems to keep it at bay It does a good job of obscuring the cover which [...]

  19. Wow I probably won t review all of these, but I really enjoyed this one Shane was cuckoo crazy, Lori is still as annoying as she is on the tv show No Daryl, but he wasn t in the books Looking forward to

  20. I don t watch the TV show but I really enjoyed this comic It was interesting and I liked how it focused on people and what would happen to people if there was a zombie apocalypse I loved the introduction I really liked the work Tony Moore did too The comic has left me wanting and I can t wait to see what happens in the rest of the comics.

  21. Kirkman does an amazing job with setting up this story I can see why this series has gotten so much acclaim and had such success I did however, watch the first season of the show before I knew it was a graphic novel And once I started reading I finished this volume in a couple hours without putting it down.The zombies They are amazing, and he wrote them so well, you really feel for them, they aren t your crazed psycho zombies, or your fast constantly hunting zombies, no, they lounge around, are [...]

  22. Officer Rick Grimes gets shot in the call of duty and goes into a coma When he awakens in the hospital weeks later, he finds himself alone in a world where the zombie apocalypse has happened and his family have disappeared So begins Rick s journey to find his family as, in a world where the end can come at any moment, he and the other survivors become the walking dead It s taken me a while to get around to actually reading the world s most popular comic The Walking Dead 115 was 2013 s bestsellin [...]

  23. Im a fan of the tv show and thought id give this a go Didnt realise is was black and white Story was pretty similar to the show Graphic, and gory I think I would have loved it if it was in colour Will defintely continue.

  24. I have heard nothing but goodness about the TV show based on this series, and yet I ve held off watching it because I m a purist who likes to read the source material first, rather than have other people s interpretations in my head So I m finally getting around to it, and I have to say, I really enjoyed it It starts off with a bang, literally, and just keeps building from there I LOVE the artwork, and though this is black and white only not sure if other editions are color I have the compendium [...]

  25. Really different from the TV show, but also really, really good I loved how well the characters were drawn, it was really easy to tell them all apart which is a good thing because there are a lot of characters In the intro to my edition the author makes it perfectly clear that his aim is to focus on the development of these characters rather than a traditional zombie plot which he definitely does the characters were fantastic The pacing is also really great, it s fast when it needs to be, but do [...]

  26. well i hate it s in whitedark not colours and i hate Daryl isn t in the comics but still the story is really magnificent it s not focusing only on zombies but it focus on human react in this disaster and how they change and telling us to not give up and keep surviving after all xDreally enjoyed it xD
