The Walking Dead

I have only read the first few issues, and thought they were pretty darned good. Then I watched the new TV series on AMC, and I fell in love with it.

A question to people in the know: are the graphic novels worth the investment? Does the story get better, or does it start to run out of steam after a while (as most comic book series tend to do)?

Any input is appreciated.

Re: The Walking Dead

I've seen an issue or two, and they look good.

Re: The Walking Dead

Buy the books. Even after book 5 the story is going strong. Best zombie-tale. Hands down.

Re: The Walking Dead

I dont like zombie tv or films but TWD is a slow moving at first but its great when it gets going. Reading in GN collections was one of the best reading experiences i have had.

TWD tv show doesnt even capture 10% of what makes the series great. Not because im a big fan but because how it is written,character wise.

Re: The Walking Dead

I hadn't heard of TWD before TV show was released. After seeing last tv episode, I became so exited i got the comic series and spent whole weekend just reading it. It "consumed" me. Imo, it is much better than tv show and I do recomend it.

Re: The Walking Dead

I got Volume 14 and it's still my favourite comic right now.
TV show was only ok in my opinion. Not sure if I'll bother with season 2.

I definately reccomend the comic though and that you buty in volumesnot issues.

Re: The Walking Dead

My favorite comic ever, hands down. The compilations are cheap on Comicxology, if you are OK with electronic issues. I buy the series that way now, then get the yearly hardback for my collection.

Re: The Walking Dead

TWD series never seems to run out of steam. The TV series seems to drag its feet at times just to make an extra episode but the comics just run full steam ahead.

Re: The Walking Dead

I love the Walking Dead. I remember when my younger brother recorded the series for me and asked me to watch them. I watched the whole first season in two days. I was mesmerized. What a great show. Unbelievable.

Re: The Walking Dead

I've just got hold of the first volume of The Walking Dead (i.e. the first 6 issues of the comic), and am really enjoying it, both for the story and the excellent artwork.

What issue is it up to now? How much am I missing? :-)

Re: The Walking Dead

Volume One TPB arrived yesterday so started it last night - much better than I expected and amazing to see how some of the characters actually look like the cast in the tv series!

Re: The Walking Dead

I absolutely love the TV show and the graphic novel. I know some people think the TV how is slow but I love the contant sense of tension throughout.

Re: The Walking Dead

I love zombie shows & films. I think the B-movie element is part of what I like so much. Decaying corpses rising from the grave? Well, I guess the bacteria are alive & well, though the person is dead; so, why not have them reanimate the corpses?
