Best Zombie Comic of All time.

I have been collecting this comic since the beginning. It will change how you view the zombie apocalypse. The author is not afraid of shocking and pissing you off. You may find a character that you love and that seems crucial to the story line and then like if the end of the world was actually happening they get snatched away from you. I get lost in these comics, they are just amazing. If you love comics, read it. If you don't like comics, read it. If you can't read, learn to read and then read it. No joke, it's that good.

DO NOT BUY THE NOOK VERSION - This review is strictly for the NOOK version of this item. The NOOK version is not the comic. It's a 15 page text document - probably from Wikipedia or some such place - that talks about the TV show. If you buy this item, GET THE PHYSICAL BOOK. I just got a refund from B/N for the NOOK version, so no harm, no foul, but I was pretty steamed when I got what I did.

    Warning : Beware of spoilers!!!!

    I decided to read this compendium because I really love the tv show. I really did like the comic storyline but there are some major difference between it and the tv show. I like the overall storyline of the comic but would not put it in the top ten of comic titles that I have read.
    I was quite shocked when Shane died early on here. It had a major impact on how both the arc of the tv show and comic developed. Only time will tell where the story goes from Herchel's farm on tv.
    Its hard to compare the two. If anything, I think the comic has given me a better appreciation for the process of developing the show and why certain characters were added.
    If you are thinking of reading the comic, go with this edition for 35 bucks. The art is good and the "Governor" story arc is definitely greatest strength of this part of the story line. You will be shocked at the ending of this volume.

    It's good, almost great.

    After watching the tv series I bought this book. I like how Shane dies earlier in the book, but don't like how Dale's a wierd old man. Tony Moore should have stayed illistrator because he puts more detail into the artwork. Charlie Adlard, the second illistrator, is either lazy or he lacks in creativity. Even after the complaining I still like the book and am still a fan of the serie. Thank very much and gooday. I said good day!

    I have really enjoyed the TV adaptation so far and decided to pick up this compendium in order to compare and contrast. The TV show is more polished and seeing an episode a week definitely leaves one hungering for more. The comics are for the most part a bit quicker at getting to a point and I am quite happy with the differences from the TV show. I look forward to reading the remaining volumes in the series as I don't see any possible spoilers for the TV show because the show writers are quite adept at changing the characters and maintaining the general story line.
