    Good, but very short. I agree it is not worth a buck.

    You have written text from page 4 to 51. The short story is 11 pages from page 4 to 15. A sneek peek of the Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury which is 35 pages covers pages 16 to 51. It is mostly a sneek peek of a book I have already read.

    more from this reviewer

    Ignore the negative reviews please

    Despite the reviews that tell you this is a waste of money, it is not. Yes, it does contain a long excerpt from "The Road to Woodbury," but you are paying for original content as well.

    The short story contained here, a reprint from TWD magazine #1, is a fast-paced and very good story. Because the Governor is such a twisted character, we want to know more about him...and this story delivers.

    It is worth the dollar you will spend.

    FAN OR NOT, FUN SHORT STORY READ

    "Just Another Day at the Office" by Jay Bonansinga is great short story continuance for "Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor" by Robert Kirkman as well as Jay Bonansinga. The ending of the Governor was left wide open and this short story continues on how the town of Woodbury fends of yet another attack of the living dead and helps create a full turn around in the character who becomes the Governer. Again, yes it is short but is full of action and is able to delve deeper into one of the most hated bad guys of all time. Great companion to the "Walking Dead" series and a must read after "Rise of the Governor" of course.

    Bait and Switch - Buyer Beware!

    Pages 5-15 (according to my Nook Color) are the story. From page 16 on is a "free" preview of "The Road to Woodbury." Which I already purchased and read. So you're paying for 10 pages of original content. I am NOT happy. And it wasn't more than one quick vignette about a zombie fight. Disappointed, and I won't be so fast to pre-order TWD "shorts" in the future until others have reviewed them.

    Do not purchase - a waste of money.

    I pre-ordered this. I can't get it to load on my nook. I have sent e-mails to Barnes and Nobles with no response. Customer service is horrible. Of course, my credit card has been billed for it.

    Great short

    Another look at the Govenor before he ran into Rick and his lot. Pretty good and reveals a bit more about Walking Dead's most notorious villian.

    You don't want to like the guy , but....

    I gotta say that the Governor is one of my favorite characters that I love to hate. This short story (and the preceding novel as well) makes it more difficult. It skillfully illustrates that no one is pure good or pure evil. Bravo!

    It's only a buck or 2 and only 8 pages or so but it's missing crucial items

    I get it...... it's a dollar and just some filler material between when Brian Phillip shot Gavin.... but it focuses on him eradicating the horde.... leaves out a lot about what happened to Gavin's cronies.... could be better..
