    THE Zombie Classic!

    Robert Kirkman has done no less than write Greatest Zombie Story EVER. Think of the best parts of the George A. Romero films. Consider what are your favorite scenes in Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake. Ponder the best chapters and narrators in Max Brooks' World War Z. The Walking Dead has all of that, put together, plus a whole lot more. More in-depth, fully fleshed out characters, simple yet stunning plots, heartbreaking humanity, and buckets of zombie gore! The story is great, the artwork is fantastic. Today, as in the zombie-infested future, this will be seen as a benchmark of the genre. This book, with RED lettering and figure on cover, collects the first 12 issues of the comic book (Volumes 1 & 2 of the trade paperback collections). Have I mentioned that this may be the Greatest Zombie Story EVER ? The Walking Dead: There Is No Substitute.

    Jaw Dropping!

    I am a HUGE fan of the show and was made aware of the comic books because of it. Boy, am I glad! Even knowing some things were going to correlate, I still exclaimed in joy or sadness as I read them. This is a fantastic series and a terrific hardcover! My family picked a great Christmas present for me!!!

    This is a great series on AMC. What makes it so great is that it is a true story. Thats right. True.
    If it wasn't true it could not be put into print or on television. You kno that.

    Amazing

    While zombies have enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity through movies and books, my favorite of which is World War Z, this graphic novel stands out above all others. Forgoing the usual background and initial zombie onslaught, it jumps right in to the height of the zombie plague and takes to a world falling apart. The writing is extremely good with believable characters who act as one would expect when their world has fallen apart. The black and white art, which is some of the best I have seen, captures the desolation and bleakness of the characters situation. A must read for anyone who likes zombies or just in the mood for a good story

    Not for me

    I am a dedicated fan of the show on AMC, and they talk about the novels on The Talking Dead, so I thought I should see where the show originated and if there is more to know about the background. I found out that the two are not very closely related and the novels move along quite a bit faster and with much less detail than the show. I guess if you were a fan of the novels first, the transition to seeing it on television would be great. However, if you started with the show and are looking for more than the show presents, the novels are not for that. Not that they are bad, but I guess I was thinking along the terms of "regular" novels, and how a book always has more detail and lots more background than any movie made from it. It will be a good collectors item for my library, but I won't be purchasing more of them.

    Cool to read after watching the show 1st

    I got into the comic books while I was waiting for the TV show's Season 3 to come back from its hiatus. I've read Books 1-4 as of now, and it's a phenomenal series. I liked Shane a lot more in the TV show, but I was fine with the comic book version as brief as it was. I did like the book's version of staying in a town home complex much better than the show's CDC spin. Great book series, and the prison ending (a la Season 2 TV finale foreshadowing) made me immediately buy Book 2.

    Amazing series!

    I love the Walking Dead. This is the book to get. The graphic novels are a bit different from the television series but I still love both and hope to buy more books in the future.

    I love watching the walking dead is an amazing book. I love to watch it every Sunday when it comes on. I like to read the books about it. even though the show is different from the show, i still like to read the books about it. I would prefer to read the books because they tell more and you can read ahead and found out what happens later on in the show, but i like watching the show because i like the characters on the show.

    Love the graphic novel

    I am loving the graphic novels of The Walking Dead. I was a bit surprised when I finished the first book and seen that it was a bit different from the tv series. But the tv shows and movies are always a changed in one way or another. But I got to say that I am loving the graphic novles. I have bought 1-5 so far and am getting ready to purchase the last 2.

    READ IT BUT BE WARNED!

    Warning: This is the most addictive graphic novel you will ever experience. If you are a fan of zombie flicks or even just graphic novels, this is the book for you. The characters are constantly developing in a post-apocalyptic zombie ridden world. You'll become attached. You'll dread. You'll be hypnotized by the fate of an ever-changing group of survivors. Then you'll rush to the comic book store to find the next installment.
