The Walking Dead (General Thread)

Post  Slacker Hero on 9th August 2010, 3:36 pm


What is The Walking Dead?

The Walking Dead is a critically acclaimed Will Eisner Award winner of Best Continuing Series by Robert Kirkman (writer of Marvel Zombies 1 & 2) it follows Police Officer Rick Grimes and his family as the zombie outbreak occurs. It's published by Image comics, the company who created Spawn, it's a black and white style comic with pencils by Charlie Adlard.

Where can I watch The Walking Dead TV Series?

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 10 PM Eastern on AMC in America. Check your local lists for times and channels if any changes.

Sounds great, where can I buy the comic book?

There are a few places. I recommend buying it on amazon because it's a bit cheaper than buying it at your local book store. I'd recommend getting The Walking Dead Compendium, it's 35 bucks on amazon and covers the first 48 issues of the comic book. It's well worth it.

Wait, why should I read the comic book if I can watch the televison series is ?

It's a great read and the series will diverge from the source material a bit, giving you more stories of these characters to read about. There are a few moments in the comic book that I will be surprised if I see in the series just because of how brutal things get from time to time. Also, the first season only covers the very beginning of the show and will only be six episodes, the comic book is on issue 75 and usually comes out each month without fail.

I've read the comic and I want to read something similar/by Robert Kirkman.

I recommend anything by Kirkman, he's great. Best new writer in the last ten years in comic books. He's written Marvel Zombies 1&2, The Astonishing Wolfman, Haunt, Brit, Battle Pope, Tech Jacket, The Irredeemable Ant-Man among others. And my favorite fucking comic book of all time Invincible. I seriously recommend it to anyone who's a fan of superhero comics but gets pissed off at the status quo of said comics today. (I.E In Marvel or DC when a character dies but comes back later.)

I have also many other comics to recommend, but that's for another thread.

Walking Dead linkage.

Ah, figured there'd be a thread about this here. I'm so freaking stoked for this series, and don't want to read the comic, just because I don't want anything spoiled. I've been looking for a new TV series to watch and this looks like the perfect candidate. Bout time zombies got their own show. Freaking vampires...

If The Walking Dead tv series succeeds it'll open the door for more comic book based tv shows. TV is a perfect serial for comics since if they get it together an episode can become a single episode. Looks like they have the comic book Powers in the works for a tv show, the comic book Fables, Sandman and also one of my favorites, Preacher.
