Walking Dead

Last year I tried to avoid zombie comics like the plague – but after last years Thought Bubble festival and the “do zombies read comics” talk I decided to pick up a copy of Walking Dead Volume one from the local comic book shop.

Walking Dead is a totally kick ass comic series so far, I’m sorry I missed Walking dead for so long as it’s one of those comic series which is really easy to follow and looks to have a really well thought out plot. Most of the story is about how people deal with extreme situations.

As far as comics go it’s the ultimate survival guide. I think the best way to put it would be zombies are as much a part of this story as time travel was to Quantum Leap.

Written by Robert Kirkman who also wrote Invincible and Wolfman has done an amazing job on this one. When I first picked it up I thought I’d be happy with just the first volume but it really isn’t enough and I can see myself picking up the whole set.

As a comic a good story isn’t enough and the work that Tony Moore really brings the story to life, Terry who also worked on The Exterminators and Fear Agent has done a very impressive job of bringing the characters to life and he draws a damn good zombie too.

Make your own mind up thanks to the wonders of the internet, Walking dead issue one thanks to Image comics.
