Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.

Review:

"Taking a well-worn genre — flesh-eating zombies overrun the world and the unlucky surviving humans must deal with the gruesome aftermath — and approaching it from a purely character-driven point of view propels this series into the spotlight from out of nowhere. This collection of the first six issues of the ongoing series opens with police officer Rick Grimes awakening from a gunshot-induced coma. From here, he's immediately dragged into a world where dangerous revenants are shambling amok without any sort of an explanation. From the moment Grimes comes to, it's a harrowing battle to avoid hordes of decomposing zombies and a hope-against-all-odds search for his missing family. Grimes makes his way to Atlanta, the nearest large city where there may be other living people, and events take several unexpected turns upon his arrival, as he meets up with a rural encampment of survivors. Of course, as in recent hit movies 28 Days Later... and Dawn of the Dead, the last humans may turn out to be as much a danger as the zombies. Forceful scripting that gives the book a strong grounding in reality, crisp b&w artwork, a shocking final sequence and brisk, gory proceedings elevate this book from the trash heap of pedestrian horror comics."

A Modern 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!

Today, as in the zombie-infested future, this will be seen as a benchmark of the genre.

The Walking Dead: There Is No Substitute.
