Hello there, folks. My name is John. Don't let the Philip Blake bit fool you. That is actually the name of the Governor in the Walking Dead series. I stole it because *SPOILER ALERT* he steals it first in the books.

Don't let that confuse you as it does every book recommendation tool, I am not hugely into the zombie novel genre, but I am a fan of The Walking dead.

The genres I do find myself being attracted to mainly include darker fantasy stories, psychology, and war books, which I keep finding myself reading.

I live in New Jersey and go to school for business management right now.

On reddit, my name is SEXUAL_ACT_IN_CAPS and I am the moderator of r/wemetonline.

Now, if you excuse me, I am going to go get drunk at a Saint Paddy's day/Birthday party. Hope to chat with you all soon.

Ashley (icecheeseplease) Very cool! My bff is reading the Walking Dead Compendiums at this. very. moment. Actually, I believe she's out celebrating a birthday/St.Patties too. Weird. Anyhow, welcome, and glad you're here!

Jennifer | 185 comments I have been wondering how the series lines up with the TV series-- is it better? similar? worth the read? I finally started watching the seasons on Netflix and got caught up in a matter of days. Now I am grumbling over how they are dragging out the current episodes... I generally stay away from zombie lit because it is the topic d'jour these days... if it is well done, though, I am all over it. On that note, you might want to check out World War Z if you haven't already....

Unfortunately, I can't tell you how they stack up. I read the books about the governor instead of the comics. And the books weren't that great. The first book (Rise of the Governor, I believe) is slow. In fact, I believe one could skip the first half and still be fine with the book.
