Loved this! I fell in love with the Walking Dead tv show during season two. Even though I watched all of season one later, I still felt like there was so much I didn't know. Trying to following along on twitter was almost impossible since there were fans of the show AND fans of the books and they were ALL talking. This made me decide to go ahead to pick up the books. I've never been "into" comics/graphic novels or what ever, but I have to say - I may just be a fan now! Loved this. Read the entire thing in only a few hours. Graphics were fantastic. Story fantastic. Different from the show (where's my Daryl?! Where's that jackass Merle?!), but still completely entertaining! Hmmm... is it wrong to call the zombie apocalypse entertaining?Anyway, I don't regret buying this, and will definitely be picking up the rest of the hardbacks!
