Like zombies? This is the graphic novel for you. Don't like zombies? This is still the graphic novel for you. The story drives this tale of survival horror. How would people act in the face of a real zombie epidemic? What would you do? This graphic novel answers those questions. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes graphic art or is a fan of zombie stuff.

Publisher Comments:

This hardcover features the first 12 issues of the hit series along with the covers for the issues in one oversized hardcover volume. Perfect for long time fans, new readers and anyone needing a slightly heavy object with which to fend off the walking dead.

A great graphic novel/comic book series. The Walking Dead is clearly about zombies, but it deals more with characters and what drives people than the living dead. The way the end of the world affects people is what pulls you into the series and Kirkman has created some great characters.

I recommend this to anyone that likes a good story, but especially to those that watch the TV series. The books deal with the characters differently and have some different twists. Some of my favorite characters were left out of the TV series which makes the print series all the more enjoyable.

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!

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). 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.

Have I mentioned that this may be the Greatest Zombie Story EVER ?

The Walking Dead: There Is No Substitute.
