These are great. The opening story is a bit contrived...like a direct rip-off of “28 Days Later”...but let’s face it, the Zombie genre is formulaic by nature. After that first hick-up, the plot buzzes along with engaging characters and great images. The first in the series is the best artistically, as the rest seem to be done in a less careful style. However, that hasn’t stopped me from ordering the whole set!

Listed in Gene Kannenberg Jr.’s 500 Essential Graphic novels (which is also available from the HCL system) as one of the top 10 essential horror graphic novels. Kannenberg gives it 5 stars (out of 5 possible).

I jumped into this series with this title. Distantly I wondered how zombies would make a running series, but of course it’s not about the zombies: as ever, they are merely a foil for the living. ’The Walking Dead’ can’t free itself of every last tired trope of the fiction genre but it does handle the characters pretty well regardless. Even when someone does something stupid, I can accept it’s a believable (if not reasonable) action in the heat of the moment. The artwork is great, the writing is very skillful. I enjoyed figuring out what was going on in previous issues to get the story to where it is in vol. 8, and this was easily done with this book’s clear exposition. The story does compel me to want to know what happens next, so obviously I care about the storyline which itself is a mark of success.

I have just started reading ’The Walking Dead’ series in comic book form after having been watching the television series and I have to say that I think that I like the television series a little more than the comics although they are pretty different. Also, where is Daryl, who is my favorite person, in the TV series? Why was he added to the cast of characters? I just want to tell you that I like the addition!
