Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 2011 Diamond Gem Award for Trade Book of the Year

In the Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether its forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeoples amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” by Wizard magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial in the history of the Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes

Being a fan of the Zombie genre, I really appreciate Robert Kirkmans take on it that makes it about the survivors and their story. Wonderful, fast read for anyone who likes horror.
