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 The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.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: no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living.
My Rating: 5/5
This is the first full length Graphic Novel that I have read that hasn't been converted from another book.
As a fan of the TV Show, I have been wanting to read the graphic novels for the longest time and had high expectations for it.
Apart from character development I thought that it was equally as good as the show. Nothing could be done about the character development though because clearly it is easier for that on TV.
There were a few main characters on the show that were noticeably missing such as Daryl, Merle and Beth but the plot was on a basic level the same.
If these hardcover books weren't so expensive I would definitely be reading the second book right now.
