Horror series that focuses on Life amongst the DEAD

I can't wait for THE WALKING DEAD: COMPENDIUM 2!!!
This first one is simply Awesome.
You see unlike most Zombie movies that focus on the horror of being eaten, Walking Dead intead make that threat dangerous but puts it in the backdrop as the real stories involve the human dynamic among surviving groups and individuals and how they comingle in this post apocalyptic world.
This book collects the first 48 issues and the series has gained a rep for its great story telling and has been nicknamed "the never ending zombie flick"

Where the story begins...

After getting hooked on the first season of the AMC series _The Walking Dead,_ I thought I'd check out the graphic novel from which producer Frank Darabont took his inspiration. Small but significant differences already distinguish the comic from the TV series, but the direction of both seems to be the same... instead of focusing on the zombie threat as such, the primary concern is with what makes us truly human, and how blurry the line between the living and the dead actually becomes. Can't wait to pick up the next volume!

Great book despite a sometimes overly aggressive author and ugly art..

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I think that The Walking Dead Compendium easily had the potential to be a 5 star book. The premise is incredibly interesting and the characters draw you in immediately from the outset. Action is in abundance as well as drama and twists and turns. It will definitely hold your attention as there are not many periods of the story where time just simply passes by and the characters are sitting around.

Unfortunately, I think this also works against the story in some ways. The author almost feels as though there always has to be some sort of shock or some sort of action, no matter what. Initially, it is understandable that the characters experience hardship and that this new zombie epidemic makes people do some pretty bad things. Unfortunately, at around halfway through the book, the author seems to have the desire to bludgeon the reader and main characters with exaggerated punishments of all kinds. I know that this is a comic book, but a large component of what makes it entertaining is that the characters feel real and behave in a realistic manner.

One other gripe is the artist change part of the way through the book. I enjoy the cartoony style of the original artist. The second artist, Charlie Adlard, is simply terrible. There are numerous moments where I could not tell characters apart. One thing you'll notice when he takes over are the number of physical changes the characters take on. I think this is because there are many people out there who were unable to tell which character they are looking at, so the author had to add scars, hair changes, and various other alterations. Mr. Adlard's work improves eventually, but it takes a while.

Excellent Z fiction

This is something every zombie fan should have on the shelf. The basis for the AMC series THE WALKING DEAD, this compendium is even better, as a given. The t.v. series is nothing like it. There are a lot of major differences, but I can't argue with the show...still a great set of plots. I finished this very quickly...it will definitely leave you wanting more. It ends tragically, though, as can be expected. Robert Kirkman has said that in the first few books, Rick changes. Now I know why. Reading this may change how you think you'd survive the Z apocalypse....can't wait to read compendium 2!

The Walking Dead--excellent show & compendium!

After receiving the Compendium I was very surprised at how heavy and big the edition is. The storyline that was used for the AMC series "The Walking Dead" was what interested me in getting the compendium in the first place.
The only thing I was disappointed in is that the comics/artwork inside is black and white. I'm not sure if that is how all compendiums are because this is the first one I have purchased, but if it were in color it would be even greater!
All in all a great purchase to get caught up in the story to the graphic novels!
