The Walking Dead, Book One
*In other words, I skimmed the first few pages, realized I'd forgotten all of the plot details, and started reading in earnest immediately.
Stop judging me, Rick!
Since I'm somewhat late to The Walking Dead phenomenon (Kelly has theorized that I'm some sort of
My first official graphic novel--if one does not count the adventures of the Archie gang or Mad (magazine) at my cousin's house thirty years ago--and I find that like McDonald's, graphic novels work better for me as rare treat instead of steady diet. Still, its worth a try. I came to the comic via the television series, curious to see Kirkman's original vision. While it is interesting ...more

My general rating is an average result of the sum of the ratings of each chapter in this harcover edition.
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Illustrators: Tony Moore (Chapter One) & Charlie Adlard (Chapter Two)
Additional gray tones to inking: Tony Moore (Chapter One) & Cliff Rathburn (Chapter Two)
How to review The Walking Dead? It's a household name. It's legendary. Who knows the impact it's had upon indie comics, the horror genre, and drama television.
Let's start with the zombie elephant in the room. Maybe it's heresy to say, but Tony Moore is a better illustrator in my opinion. His lines are sharp, his characters unique, his action unmatched. Charlie Adlard is solid, but his character design is lacking by comparison. I've heard he gets phenomenal later on, but there was a huge shift be ...more
From panel to panel, you get humans trying desperately to fulfill the first level of Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of ...more
The story of Officer Rick Grimes and cohorts moves forward through a world of devastation and zombies to include the horrific accident near the farm all the way through to finding the prison....and what's behind all the fences and corridors inside.
Book One also includes a short special holiday story featuring Morgan and Duane, some great character sk...more
I've read The Walking Dead, Issue #1 which is a free book covering only the first day of TWD graphic novels just to see if I'd like this medium, and I can honestly say, TWD is my first graphic novel and now I'm addicted to this series.
Sadly, my library doesn't have book two but it does have the rest of the books so I'm forced to buy it because I'm desperate to know what happens next and how it diverges from the ...more
Each one of these books comprises twelve issues of the comic.
Officer Rick Grimes wakes up in the hospital after being shot by an escaping prisoner. No one responds to his calls for a nurse, and when he ventu ...more
It really lost me at the sexism, though -- just like World War Z. I guess it's good to know that someone's going to be looking after the laundry when the world ends...? On the other hand, Kirkman's grasp of masculine behavior struck me as cartoonish and inauthentic as well. Does every man have a secret cowboy deep insid ...more
So the comic? I found it a slightly strange experience. Rather than balance dialogue with narration, the Walking Dead is only populated by the out-loud voices of the characters. At first this did wonders leading towards the bleak setting, however I struggled at times with panels dominated by speech bubbles.
The artwork is gruesome as to be ...more
Since I can't have this...
I decided to give the comic a try.
I really enjoyed this. I have never read a comic or graphic novel before this, but after all the amazing reviews I have read on GR, I thought it was about time. I am a HUGE fan of the show and I was really shocked how different this was. It was so fun to read and get both perspectives.
Book 2 here I come!! ...more
First, I'm not a huge graphic novel/comic book reader. The artwork doesn't hold my attention which means I fly through the pages gleaning the story mainly from the dialogue. Which leads into my impatience for drawn out stories. If I had to wait for each issue to come out, I'd go crazy. Having a compendium like this makes it more enjoyable for me. And finally, I' ...more
I enjoyed this a lot, i even liked the fact that it was very different from the tv show so i didn't know what would happen next. The artist changes though, starting from the 7th issue (or chapter 2 in this book) and it was kind of a let-down for me to be honest, because the art was absolutely flawless in the beginning. The art is still really good but i can't help but compare it to the first issues. The plot was great, though i gotta admit i liked that of the tv show better. I guess i s ...more
I enjoyed the story and the artwork in the first two volumes. I liked that fact t ...more
I prefer the show, hands-down. The comic blows through plot points at a breakneck pace and relies on a whole hell of a lot of tell-not-showing. Characters feel flat and one dimensional. Dialogue is laden with exposition. There's almost a complete lack of tension or organic build-up to dramatic moments so they come across either abrupt or downright silly.
And the art, which was very good (often taking advantage of full-page single panels for a perfect, gorgeous, gory reveal) for the fi ...more
The TV series is far better in this regard, with a firmer grasp on how to dole out the story as well as sustaining tension. It was a go ...more
I fell in love with The Walking Dead instantly. Season one and two were amazing but after that the love started to sour slightly. I'm a binge watcher, I wait till everything is on boxset then go for it. But I started watching season 3, ...more
