I'm not sure that The Walking Dead comics are as similar to the television show as I thought they'd be. Certainly they are in many ways, but mostly the story lines begin the same - and then deviate. I actually prefer the slow-build up and character p ...more

Summer Lane is reading The Walking Dead, Book One: SOOO.....thus far I prefer the layered character development of the television show over the graphic novel, but I digress. Either way it's a great survival story so far. I'm fascinated by the differences and similarities in the characters on the show and in the novel. But most of all...I REALLY NOTICE DARYL DIXON'S NON-EXISTENCE IN THE COMICS. just saying.

“You're staring at me."

"I am not. I'm just... thinking. Without blinking.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency

“What’s your name?” I ask again.
“Chris,” he says. “Chris Young.”
I exhale dramatically, blowing my bangs out of my eyes.
“I can take you,” I reply. “But if you try anything, I’ll shoot you right between the eyes. Seriously.”
He almost smiles.
“Yes, ma’am.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency

“I’ve never been on a bike,” I say. “I mean, I’ve been on a bike but not a motorcycle.”
“And why is that?” he asks.
“Bugs. They get in your mouth, right? That’s just gross.”
Chris makes a face.
“If you ride around with your mouth hanging open, I assume that could be a possibility.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency
