How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television?
When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted?
How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED?
The world we knew is gone.
The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.
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.no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.
In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.
Now we have pretty much all seen the show The Walking Dead. It’s pretty popular and has been out for years now but, even still I just got around to actually reading the graphic novels that the show is based off of. The show does not ruin the graphic novel in the slightest because there are so many differences between the television show and the book that they both stand on their own. Sure, there is storyline in both that are the same but the book is a bit different, so far. I have only read the first volume. Some of the characters that I know aren’t in the book yet and then there are some that have already left that surprised me.
The artwork is black and white and very well done. You can get the emotions off of the characters by the images and the feelings that the story is trying to convey. I have the second volume sitting next to me and I will definitely be continuing it.
If you’re iffy about reading this because you a have watched the show, I urge you to pick it up. You won’t be disappointed.
