An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.
Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.
Just started reading this series and I have to say, it's really, really good. Not just the comic itself: superior writing and fantastic art aside, it just feels good to READ again. It's been far too long, and since I stocked up on a bunch of new comics and books this past Black Friday, I'll be blogging less and reading more. However, the good news is that what I will post will often be more than just links, but perhaps actual REVIEWS again! That's right! Movies, books, concerts, things that happen outside of the internet.
Anyways, yes; the Walking Dead is not only awesome, but considering you can by the epic-ly huge 'Compendium One' that contains the first 40 or so issues of the comic, it's a worthy buy that will keep you up at night. Not out of fear, but just because you can't put the thing down. EPIC.
