OK, so am i the only one thats a big enough nerd that i have read every COMIC BOOK issue of The Walking Dead?? I have all the hard cover collections and most of the regular issues. The first 7 issues are very hard to find because when the book started nobody cared about Zombies and the book had a VERY low print run. The first issue can go for as much as $1000. if a high professionally graded book. Kirkman was also on such a low budget, he chose to do the book in black and white. After the book exploded he chose to keep it that way. So to this day the inside art is all in black and white.

I have issues 8 and up. Most people i know have read the hardcover collections. So has anyone read the book? If so, you will find that the writer Robert Kirkman loves to F with your head. Dont grow to like a character. More than likely he will be dead when you least expect it. The book is much more graphic than the show and is more character based. Kirkman started the book because he always loved zombie movies. But he always wanted to know what happened after they got out of the mall. How would the survivors live. The worlds fucked and more than likely you will have to worry about the living more than the dead. Food, water, shelter, sex, travel. How will people live? Can they? If they do, is it a world worth living in? Will they ever eat a Big Mac again?
Im not sure how many OO members have read the comic and are up to date with the book. But figured id see. So this could be the shortest thread in OO history. Then i will crawl back into my nerdy comic collection and sob LOL.
If you want to get hooked you can read the first issue free here. The show followed the first issue almost to a T. But the show had moved further away from the book as the episodes have continued. So the book has plenty of unique surprises.
