The Walking Dead - Robert Kirkman
Rating: 4 stars
When Season 2 of The Walking Dead ended with a hooded stranger rescuing Andrea and a glimpse of the groups' new home, I went a little crazy. I didn't want it to end! So I borrowed Book One from a friend and settled down to tear through the comic.
Very, very good! And completely different from the show, allowing for two different yet absolutely fantastic experiences. The artists change about halfway through the first 12 issues (which make up Book One) and it's a little jarring. Still, the fast pace of the novel brought me to the end of Book One rather quickly, riding a wave of high anxiety and tension. It is, after all, a continuing story of survival horror, told in a world that's gone to shit and probably won't ever turn around.
