Overview

The Walking Dead Chronicles: The Official Companion Book is the only authorized, behind-the-scenes guide to Season One of the white-hot new AMC television series, The Walking Dead, which tells the story of a sheriff’s deputy leading a band of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead.

Focusing on the making of the first season of the Golden Globe–nominated TV show, as well as the creation of the New York Times bestselling comic book on which the series is based, The Walking Dead Chronicles is lav­ishly illustrated with never-before-seen unit photography, storyboards, set designs, makeup and visual effects shots, and page-to-screen comparisons of the comic and TV show. Featuring new interviews with series creator Robert Kirkman and executive producer Frank Darabont, as well as the cast and crew, the book also includes sidebars that serve as a detailed episode guide, reproducing excerpts from early drafts and final scripts, and revealing new direc­tions for the second season and beyond.

Praise for the Walking Dead Chronicles:

“Paul Ruditis provides an interesting and insightful look at both the comic book and TV series. . . . The text is filled with thoughtful commentary from the cast and crew, as well as an eye-catching assortment of production photos, set designs, storyboards, special-effects images, and reproductions of comic book artwork.” —School Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Last season, AMC's popular The Walking Dead was hailed as "a stark and harrowing survival parable...visually stunning and daring in its artful use of silence." The second season, which begins, next month promises to be even more exciting. The Walking Dead Chronicles is its official companion, the only book that takes you inside the horror series, its set design, storyboards, makeup and visual effects, and much more. This trade paperback contains interviews with series creator Robert Kirkman and cast members; a detailed episode guide; excerpts of early drafts and final scripts; and comparisons of its comic book original and the show.

    Great!

    Got this for my boyfriend and he loves it. Shows behind the scenes guide but only for season 1. Still a good book to have for Walking dead lovers.
