The Walking Dead is all about the living, the people who struggle to retain their humanity in the face of the unspeakable. So what does that mean? What good is being human when you're no longer the dominant species on the planet? And what's really left to

FYI: this compendium is like buying books 1, 2, 3 and 4.
So I found excuses to stop spending the money every month, and thought no more of it... until I came across this compendium. What a great deal! The very large- but well put together-book contains the first 50 comic stories from the series, so what would have ended up costing me over 200 bucks ended up being less than 35.
Any fan of Zombie stories has to treat this as a must-read. The characters are ultra-believable, and the stories very exciting. Oh, and the fact that there is no colour- perfect! Suits the tone of the comics to a tee.
And why would you? It's bound to give you night terrors! This book is very graphic, but well written. It doesn't hold back any punches. Prepare to be disgusted with humanity, in a realistic fashion. I will never be the same. And neither will any of the people I push this book on!
This book is very weighty, but easy enough to read sitting up with a pillow on my lap to support it. The binding was good and square, and the quality of the pages was decent.
I'm not usually into graphic novels, but this one kept me wanting for more, because each stories overlap each other so well you'll never want to put down the book. I was a little bit let down by the artwork, the first chapter of the book have a pretty distinct style that I liked, and changed over the course of the story, but it is not a big deal because the characters are pretty well-rounded and their stories believable. Although I was expecting more "creepy horror", it is actually more of a dramatic story than it is scary, but none the less pretty entertaining.
Finally, if you are into zombie apocalypse, survival, drama and social tension take a look at the compendium. I'm really looking foward for the next one.
This is hands down the best and most through zombie story ever made. It is better then World War ZZZ( I hated that and couldn't even finish it) better then anything by David Wellington or Brian Keene, Better then any Resident Evil game plot this is the greatest thing zombie ever made. The characters and plot are very realistic and believeable there are no supernatural moments to destroy the atmosphere and make the story cheesey. The drawings and plot are very mature and well done in black and white. I won't give away the plot, but if you are a zombie or end of the world fan you have heard it all before, but not done this well.
This graphic novel is worth your time and the cheap price tag attached to it. Pick it up while it's still avalible. I got it for a Christmas present and couldn't have been happier. This is a heavy book over 1000 pages long. There is so much story in here it took me about a week to get through it reading about two hours a night and it's mostly pictures. This is probably the most fun I have ever had reading a Graphic Novel. Enjoy.
