    This is so, so, so, so good. It doesn?t try to be disgusting and it doesn?t mainly focus on the zombies, surprisingly. It?s more about the little community of survivors and their relationships, their helping each other out, their trying to find a way out of this pit of death. I...

    This review contains *spoilers* for both the tv show (season 1 &2) and the graphic novel. I absolutely loved the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, so I decided why not give the comic books a chance. And I was not disappointed. This volume brought back so many memorie...

    4.0 stars. You can see by the ratings and the other reviews of this book that a lot of people think very highly of this series and it is certainly justified. This is the kind of excellence in both writing and art that make the graphic novel an incredibly power medium when it is do...

    Kudos to Image Comics for saving all that money on a colorist (better, Erica?)! I get it, I get it! I'm frugal, too. In fact, (view spoiler)[ We just got back from a family vacation. And the entire time, I couldn't get my youngest to eat anything they served for breakfast at t...

    I wanted to really like volume one of The Walking Dead. Most people do like it. They like it a lot. I didn't, which doesn't make anyone better or smarter than anyone else, we just have different tastes. I appreciate Robert Kirkman wanting to write a social commentary and not just a ...

    We are amidst a Zombie phenomena, well they have been around since that movie Night of the Living Dead, But did not have as much coverage, there is so many novels and movies now with a zombie theme. Some neat artwork here representing a zombie gore feast of a struggle for a band ...

    I really liked this! I've watched a few of the first episodes on TV, and honestly I liked this so much more. Maybe it's because I'm a baby and I don't think the zombies look as scary as in the show? Maybe that's part of the reason. But this was really good! ...

    "It's not the same as killing the dead ones, Daddy." "It never should be, son. It never should be." I'm so glad I finally decided to read the comic! It was so powerful to have more depth and more layers to the story, and the comic form is as addictive as the series. It is basical...

    For everyone not in the know I have a soft spot for apocalyptic fiction. My first SF read as a burgeoning nerd was The Day of the Triffids. It certainly moulded me into the reader that I am today. But although these stories are fiction, the more scientifically removed from reality zomb...

    I'm a complete amateur when it comes to this stuff, but I'm really enjoying my time exploring comics and graphic novels. It's hard to rate them because I don't have anything else to really compare them against since I've only read two, so four stars is my baseline for now. I watche...

    I think some of the pleasure of reading this graphic novel was taken away from watching the first two seasons of the TV series. There obviously weren't that many surprises and I would say 75% of the graphic novel was like several of the episodes. Without giving spoilers I'd say certain...

    I?m also one of the stooges who came to the party late. That?s to say, I watched the series before reading the book, or graphic novel to be exact. Heck, when I purchased ?the complete season one? I wasn?t even aware that it was based on a book. Now, when something like this h...

    A completely inappropriate birthday gift for someone with necrofobia - or pseudonecrofobia - or hemi-necrofobia - or pauci-animafobia. Well written. Vividly, horrifically, (in my opinion poorly) illustrated with images that stalk and haunt my waking dreams. I vote - NO. I have...

    Wow. I probably won't review all of these, but I really enjoyed this one. Shane was cuckoo crazy, Lori is still as annoying as she is on the tv show. No Daryl, but he wasn't in the books. Looking forward to more! ...

    I know I'm late getting on this bandwagon... 4 stars. Good start to the story. ...

    Kirkman does an amazing job with setting up this story. I can see why this series has gotten so much acclaim and had such success. I did however, watch the first season of the show before I knew it was a graphic novel. And once I started reading I finished this volume in a couple hours...

    I don't watch the TV show but I really enjoyed this comic. It was interesting and I liked how it focused on people and what would happen to people if there was a zombie apocalypse. I loved the introduction. I really liked the work Tony Moore did too. The comic has left me wanting more ...

    Officer Rick Grimes gets shot in the call of duty and goes into a coma. When he awakens in the hospital weeks later, he finds himself alone in a world where the zombie apocalypse has happened ? and his family have disappeared. So begins Rick?s journey to find his family as, in a wo...

    I've been watching The Walking Dead for years on AMC (though I'm not up to date on the latest season), but this was my first time picking up the graphic novel series that inspired it. I've been told by so many people that the graphic novels are incredible, so I finally decided to see w...

    Im a fan of the tv show and thought id give this a go. Didnt realise is was black and white. Story was pretty similar to the show. Graphic, and gory. I think I would have loved it more if it was in colour. Will defintely continue. ...

    So far it's really interesting to see how DRASTICALLY different the TV show is... I mean, SHANE. WHAT. ...

    I have heard nothing but goodness about the TV show based on this series, and yet I've held off watching it because I'm a purist who likes to read the source material first, rather than have other people's interpretations in my head. So I'm finally getting around to it, and I have ...

    This is so, so, so, so good. It doesn?t try to be disgusting and it doesn?t mainly focus on the zombies, surprisingly. It?s more about the little community of survivors and their relationships, their helping each other out, their trying to find a way out of this pit of death. I...

    A completely inappropriate birthday gift for someone with necrofobia - or pseudonecrofobia - or hemi-necrofobia - or pauci-animafobia. Well written. Vividly, horrifically, (in my opinion poorly) illustrated with images that stalk and haunt my waking dreams. I vote - NO. I have...

    Wow. I probably won't review all of these, but I really enjoyed this one. Shane was cuckoo crazy, Lori is still as annoying as she is on the tv show. No Daryl, but he wasn't in the books. Looking forward to more! ...

    I know I'm late getting on this bandwagon... 4 stars. Good start to the story. ...

    Kirkman does an amazing job with setting up this story. I can see why this series has gotten so much acclaim and had such success. I did however, watch the first season of the show before I knew it was a graphic novel. And once I started reading I finished this volume in a couple hours...

    I don't watch the TV show but I really enjoyed this comic. It was interesting and I liked how it focused on people and what would happen to people if there was a zombie apocalypse. I loved the introduction. I really liked the work Tony Moore did too. The comic has left me wanting more ...

    I've been watching The Walking Dead for years on AMC (though I'm not up to date on the latest season), but this was my first time picking up the graphic novel series that inspired it. I've been told by so many people that the graphic novels are incredible, so I finally decided to see w...

    Im a fan of the tv show and thought id give this a go. Didnt realise is was black and white. Story was pretty similar to the show. Graphic, and gory. I think I would have loved it more if it was in colour. Will defintely continue. ...

    So far it's really interesting to see how DRASTICALLY different the TV show is... I mean, SHANE. WHAT. ...

    This is so, so, so, so good. It doesn?t try to be disgusting and it doesn?t mainly focus on the zombies, surprisingly. It?s more about the little community of survivors and their relationships, their helping each other out, their trying to find a way out of this pit of death. I...

    A completely inappropriate birthday gift for someone with necrofobia - or pseudonecrofobia - or hemi-necrofobia - or pauci-animafobia. Well written. Vividly, horrifically, (in my opinion poorly) illustrated with images that stalk and haunt my waking dreams. I vote - NO. I have...

    Wow. I probably won't review all of these, but I really enjoyed this one. Shane was cuckoo crazy, Lori is still as annoying as she is on the tv show. No Daryl, but he wasn't in the books. Looking forward to more! ...

    I know I'm late getting on this bandwagon... 4 stars. Good start to the story. ...

    Kirkman does an amazing job with setting up this story. I can see why this series has gotten so much acclaim and had such success. I did however, watch the first season of the show before I knew it was a graphic novel. And once I started reading I finished this volume in a couple hours...

    I don't watch the TV show but I really enjoyed this comic. It was interesting and I liked how it focused on people and what would happen to people if there was a zombie apocalypse. I loved the introduction. I really liked the work Tony Moore did too. The comic has left me wanting more ...

    I've been watching The Walking Dead for years on AMC (though I'm not up to date on the latest season), but this was my first time picking up the graphic novel series that inspired it. I've been told by so many people that the graphic novels are incredible, so I finally decided to see w...

    Im a fan of the tv show and thought id give this a go. Didnt realise is was black and white. Story was pretty similar to the show. Graphic, and gory. I think I would have loved it more if it was in colour. Will defintely continue. ...

    So far it's really interesting to see how DRASTICALLY different the TV show is... I mean, SHANE. WHAT. ...

    I have heard nothing but goodness about the TV show based on this series, and yet I've held off watching it because I'm a purist who likes to read the source material first, rather than have other people's interpretations in my head. So I'm finally getting around to it, and I have ...

    Really different from the TV show, but also really, really good! I loved how well the characters were drawn, it was really easy to tell them all apart - which is a good thing because there are a lot of characters! In the intro to my edition the author makes it perfectly clear that his ...

    Kirkman does an amazing job with setting up this story. I can see why this series has gotten so much acclaim and had such success. I did however, watch the first season of the show before I knew it was a graphic novel. And once I started reading I finished this volume in a couple hours...

    I don't watch the TV show but I really enjoyed this comic. It was interesting and I liked how it focused on people and what would happen to people if there was a zombie apocalypse. I loved the introduction. I really liked the work Tony Moore did too. The comic has left me wanting more ...

    Im a fan of the tv show and thought id give this a go. Didnt realise is was black and white. Story was pretty similar to the show. Graphic, and gory. I think I would have loved it more if it was in colour. Will defintely continue. ...

    So far it's really interesting to see how DRASTICALLY different the TV show is... I mean, SHANE. WHAT. ...

    I have heard nothing but goodness about the TV show based on this series, and yet I've held off watching it because I'm a purist who likes to read the source material first, rather than have other people's interpretations in my head. So I'm finally getting around to it, and I have ...

    Really different from the TV show, but also really, really good! I loved how well the characters were drawn, it was really easy to tell them all apart - which is a good thing because there are a lot of characters! In the intro to my edition the author makes it perfectly clear that his ...

    well i hate it's in white&dark not colours and i hate Daryl isn't in the comics but still the story is really magnificent it's not focusing only on zombies but it focus more on human react in this disaster and how they change and telling us to not give up and keep surviving after...
