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"

Better than the TV show. A must-read for all fans.
After watching the TV show up to the current season, I decided to give the comic books a try. After looking through all the options, the Compendium was the cheapest, so I ordered it. I was not disappointed. The small differences between the show and the book are more than enough to hook anybody. There is a lot of swearing though, so be aware of that. I'm not going to say anything else, but this is DEFINATELY worth your $$$.

Great book. 48 comics lumped into one great book.
I love the TV Show and a friend told me that the comics were better. He was right. So glad I found this book so I didn't have to buy all the comics. that would have probably cost me a fortune.
