Zombies. The walking dead. Flesh-eating beasts. Whatever you want to call them, the fact is that these monsters are all the rave these days. Forget vampires, when you can have these uglies with no positive characteristics to accompany their demise!
Kirkman, author of the popular graphic novel series The Walking Dead has taken zombies to a whole other level complimenting them with brilliant characters to live and survive in a post-apocalyptic world. I originally was hooked on this world thanks to the AMC television series, but after reading the first few books, I discovered how much they really had to offer. From black and white art that packs a punch to surprising twists and characters with unmeasurable strength, I realized that the books have so much more to offer than those on-screen.
Overall, the series has sent me on an emotional roller coaster ride that only leaves me wanting more out of simple curiosity. Will the author bring sunshine and hope back into the survivor's lives (they obviously deserve it!) or will he continue to beat them down book after book? I just cannot look away from their lives!
Fellow Walking Dead Lovers: Tell me I am not alone on my whirlwind of emotions! Do you find yourself reacting strongly to these books, positively and/or negatively?
Special Note: This fan has only seen through Season Two of the popular television series. Please no spoilers since the story lines tend to differ!
