A graphic novel on par with the best zombie movies in terms of horror and--best of all--storytelling.
This is the only comic book I read. Its an extremely suspenseful story about a group of people trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. Its absolutely terrifying because no one is spared. You never know who is going to get picked off. It also leaves you wondering "what would I do?". Just when you think you have the answers, think again!
One thing that sucks about zombie movies is that they end. They're also few and far between these days. That's where Robert Kirkman agrees with us. Writer of The Walking Dead comic series, he wanted to explore the long-term affects of a zombie outbreak on people. How would we adapt? Could we handle the psychological trauma? What about raising children in a post apocalyptic world? The story covers all these issues and more - It's truly suspenseful. As a bonus the hardcover volumes often feature added commentary by Kirkman as well as unused cover art. Not only is it entertaining, it reinforces the idea that during the zombie outbreak, it's not just the zombies we need to watch out for - but each other.
