When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted?

How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED?

The world we knew is gone.

The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.

This is so, so, so, so good. It doesn’t try to be disgusting and it doesn’t mainly focus on the zombies, surprisingly. It’s more about the little community of survivors and their relationships, their helping each other out, their trying to find a way out of this pit of death. I felt desolate to see some characters gone too soon or left behind, but I have some hope of seeing new ones in the future that will make me stop missing the departed ones.
Great, great comic series.

This review contains *spoilers* for both the tv show (season 1 &2) and the graphic novel.
I absolutely loved the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, so I decided why not give the comic books a chance. And I was not disappointed.
This volume brought back so many memories of the show for me and reminded me of just how much I loved it— even with the jump scares.
But The Walking Dead doesn’t only focus on the gore of killing zombies, it also explores how people deal with extreme situations a

Kudos to Image Comics for saving all that money on a colorist (better, Erica?)!

I'm frugal, too. In fact, (view spoiler)[ We just got back from a family vacation. And the entire time, I couldn't get my youngest to eat anything they served for breakfast at the place we were staying. And they had EVERYTHING there!

4.0 stars. You can see by the ratings and the other reviews of this book that a lot of people think very highly of this series and it is certainly justified. This is the kind of excellence in both writing and art that make the graphic novel an incredibly power medium when it is done well. Here….it is done very well indeed. The writing and the art are superb and I don’t think you could ask for better.

I wanted to really like volume one of The Walking Dead. Most people do like it. They like it a lot. I didn't, which doesn't make anyone better or smarter than anyone else, we just have different tastes.
I appreciate Robert Kirkman wanting to write a social commentary and not just a horror story, but I don't know that he needs to state this in the introduction - all good zombie (and horror) stories are dealing with more than just the surface material, so Kirkman emphasizing his social commentary s

Whether you’re a comic book fan or a television buff, one thing remains certain: Rick Grimes is a badass.
He’s resourceful too, a real survivor. When other members of the fledgling group are panicking and running around like headless chickens, he acts. When they argue about the next move they should take or which option is safest, Rick, again, acts. He doesn’t mess about. You’ve got to give it to the small town sheriff, he quickly realises what he must do to keep his family alive. And it isn’t p

Oh yeah...I'm in. 'The world we knew was gone.'

As it begins, the gunslinging Officer Rick Grimes, hurt in the line of duty, wakes up alone..well almost alone in the hospital. No wife and no best friend-partner watching over him; no nurse or anyone answers his call, and then he finds some of them and realizes the world is not the same.

Honestly, I'm probably the one person on the planet that hasn't watched much of the TV show but I was surprised at how much more quickly things in the comic happen. I feel like season one was probably Vol. 1 and 2 combined. Rule number one for reading this: Do not get attached to any of the characters! At least one person dies in each one, at least they do in the first three volumes, and in most cases it's 2 or more deaths per volume. You can like or dislike characters but do not get attached.

I have to believe that readers of dystopian fiction or apocalyptic fiction harbour the belief that the world bound by the printer’s ink is definitely looming; would one day come true. Or at the very least hope it does. I myself cannot stop from venturing into the implications of the dawn of the walking dead. (see what I did there? Too obvious? :/ ) What would I do first?

I really liked this! I've watched a few of the first episodes on TV, and honestly I liked this so much more. Maybe it's because I'm a baby and I don't think the zombies look as scary as in the show? Maybe that's part of the reason. But this was really good!

I’m also one of the stooges who came to the party late. That’s to say, I watched the series before reading the book, or graphic novel to be exact. Heck, when I purchased “the complete season one” I wasn’t even aware that it was based on a book. Now, when something like this happens, there is absolutely no way to undo it. There is no way to un-remember the visual medium and any first impressions, so it’s all spilt milk.

For everyone not in the know I have a soft spot for apocalyptic fiction. My first SF read as a burgeoning nerd was The Day of the Triffids. It certainly moulded me into the reader that I am today. But although these stories are fiction, the more scientifically removed from reality zombie type apocalypse is by far not my favourite. Nuclear fallout, deadly virus, environmental collapse; these all seem entirely plausible. But there is no precedence for zombies despite fans holding onto the parasite..more
I'm a complete amateur when it comes to this stuff, but I'm really enjoying my time exploring comics and graphic novels. It's hard to rate them because I don't have anything else to really compare them against since I've only read two, so four stars is my baseline for now.

I think some of the pleasure of reading this graphic novel was taken away from watching the first two seasons of the TV series. There obviously weren't that many surprises and I would say 75% of the graphic novel was like several of the episodes. Without giving spoilers I'd say certain parts of the TV series were better. Probably because they built on the comic which came first. Then again, some instances of the graphic novel were better than the series so I don't feel I'm biased towards one or..more

Gruesome, intense, and addictive, this first dive into the nightmare of Rick Grimes and the Zombie Apocalypse is a gory but beautiful achievement for a graphical novel.

The Walking Dead[1] is a black-and-white comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman with art by Tony Moore.[2][3] It focuses on Rick Grimes, a Kentucky deputy who is shot in the line of duty and awakens from a coma in a zombie apocalypse that has resulted in a state-wide quarantine. After joining with other ones, he gradually takes on the role of leader of a community as it struggles to survive the zombie apocalypse.

First issued in 2003 by publisher Image Comics, the comic is written by Kirkman[4] with art by Moore (issues No. 1–6) and Charlie Adlard (issue No. 7 onward).[5] Moore continued to do the covers through issue No. 24.[6]

The Walking Dead received the 2007 and 2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series at San Diego Comic-Con International. The series was adapted into the AMC television series The Walking Dead, which premiered in 2010. The television program loosely follows the storyline of the comic book. The franchise has also spawned multiple additional media properties, including video games (such as The Walking Dead video game), a companion television series (Fear the Walking Dead),[7] webisode series (The Walking Dead: Torn Apart, The Walking Dead: Cold Storage, The Walking Dead: The Oath, and The Walking Dead: Red Machete), and various additional publications, including novels (The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor).

Publication history[edit]

The original pitch by Kirkman and Moore was for a followup to George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead, with the series taking place in the 1960s.[8]Image Comics co-founder Jim Valentino suggested using an original concept instead so the creators would own the property outright.[8] The revised pitch became The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead debuted in 2003, published by Image Comics, with art by Tony Moore for the first six issues and Cliff Rathburn shading the art after issue five. Charlie Adlard took over as artist on issue #7, after he was approached by Kirkman.[5] Moore also did the cover art for the first twenty-four issues and the first four trade paperbacks. The remainder were done by Adlard.

When the television series premiered in October 2010, Image Comics announced The Walking Dead Weekly. The first 52 issues of the series began to be reprinted on January 5, 2011, with one issue per week for a year.[9]

The series is periodically re-published in trade paperbacks which contain six issues each, hardcover books with twelve issues and occasional bonus material, omnibus editions of twenty-four issues, and compendium editions of forty-eight issues.

In May of 2018, Image Comics and its imprint Skybound Entertainment, the company that has driven development of The Walking Dead comic series since 2010, jointly announced The Walking Dead Day. The fan-oriented event has a scheduled date of October 13, 2018 and will coincide with the release of a Walking Dead #1 15th Anniversary Variant Edition, with cover art by current series artist Charlie Adlard. A select number of The Walking Dead Day participating local comic shops become part of the comic's story line, with their own special edition of Adlard's anniversary cover, featuring the store’s logo incorporated into the cover art. The company also noted that additional limited edition collectibles and festivities would be announced at a future date, prior to the October 2018 event.[10]

Story arcs[edit]

Volume 1: Days Gone Bye (Issues 1–6)

Rick Grimes, a sheriff's deputy from Kentucky, is wounded in the line of duty and emerges from a coma to find the world overrun by the undead. He returns home to find his house ransacked and his wife and son gone. Rick travels to a military evacuation zone in Atlanta to find his family, but finds Atlanta has also been overrun. He is rescued by Glenn Rhee, who takes him to his small camp of survivors. Among them are Rick's wife Lori and his son Carl. Zombies (called Walkers, Roamers, and Lurkers in most of the series) eventually attack the group. Following the attack, Shane Walsh, Rick's friend and former police partner, tries to murder Rick, having had a one-night stand and become obsessed with Lori, and Carl shoots Shane to protect his father.[11]

Volume 2: Miles Behind Us (Issues 7–12)

Rick becomes the group's leader. He and the remaining survivors leave Atlanta and travel across hostile territory in search of a safer refuge. The group meets a man, Tyreese, who is accompanied by his daughter and girlfriend. Everyone takes shelter at Wiltshire Estates, a gated community, but are forced to leave when they stumble upon its zombie infestation. The group eventually finds shelter at a small farm after Carl is shot. The farm's owner, Hershel Greene and his family, are in denial about the walkers' nature and have been storing deceased loved ones and neighbors in their barn. Rick's group is asked to leave the farm and stumbles upon an abandoned prison, which they decide to make their home.

Volume 3: Safety Behind Bars (Issues 13–18)

The group begins to clear the prison yard and one cell block for living quarters. They meet some surviving inmates when they break into the prison's cafeteria. Rick invites Hershel and his family to come live in the prison and they accept. Two of the group members commit suicide and someone begins to murder other group members. This inmate, a convicted serial killer, is eventually captured and killed. Other inmates stage a rebellion.

Volume 4: The Heart's Desire (Issues 19–24)

The group manages to quell the inmates' rebellion and secure the prison. A katana-wielding woman named Michonne arrives at the prison seeking refuge and causes tension among some of Rick's survivors. When another member is bitten on the leg, Rick attempts to save him by amputating his bitten leg; however, despite receiving medical treatment from Hershel, the man dies. Rick and Tyreese get into a fight and the community decides to have a council with four co-leaders instead of Rick as sole leader.

Volume 5: The Best Defense (Issues 25–30)

Rick, Michonne and Glenn observe a helicopter crash in the distance and leave the prison to search for it. They find a small town called Woodbury, where a large, well-armed and organized group of survivors has taken refuge. Woodbury's leader is a man called the Governor. The Governor captures Rick's group and interrogates them. He mutilates Rick by cutting off his right hand and rapes and tortures Michonne.

Volume 6: This Sorrowful Life (Issues 31–36)

Rick, Glenn, and Michonne manage to escape from Woodbury with the help of others from the town. Michonne tortures the Governor before she leaves. They arrive back at the prison safely, but find that hordes of zombies have broken in. Rick's survivors fight them off. Rick informs the prison's residents of what took place in Woodbury and tells them to prepare for battle.

Volume 7: The Calm Before (Issues 37–42)

Life at the prison continues in what passes for normal in this apocalyptic world. Glenn and Maggie marry. Several residents search for supplies and engage in a shootout with men from Woodbury. Lori goes into labor and Judith is born. Dale is out on a mission siphoning gas when he is bitten in the leg. Dale's friends amputate the leg and he survives. Carol commits suicide by allowing a zombie to bite her. The volume ends with the Governor's arrival with his army and a tank.

Volume 8: Made to Suffer (Issues 43–48)

The arc begins with a flashback which reveals how the Governor recovered and readied Woodbury for battle. The Governor's army attacks the prison but is driven away. Several of Rick's survivors decide to flee the prison in the RV to avoid the Governor's expected retaliation. The prison recovers from his initial assault but the Governor attacks again. The RV members arrive to reinforce the prison's residents. Despite this, many of Rick's band are killed, including Lori, Judith, Tyreese, and Hershel. The guilt ridden soldier who killed Lori and Judith on the Governor's orders betrays and kills him. With the prison burning and in shambles, Rick's band scatters and flees.

Volume 9: Here We Remain (Issues 49–54)

After the prison's destruction and his band is separated, Rick and Carl search for shelter in a nearby town and reunite with surviving friends. Rick's physical and mental state begin to unravel, while Carl grows increasingly independent and apathetic. They eventually manage to reunite with their other survivors and end up at Hershel's farm. Three new people, Abraham, Rosita and Eugene, arrive and inform the group that they are on a mission to Washington D.C. to cure the plague. Rick's band decides to join their journey.

Volume 10: What We Become (Issues 55–60)

Maggie attempts to hang herself on the way to Washington. Rick holds Abraham, who thinks she's dead, at gunpoint and prevents him from shooting her in the head. Rick, Abraham, and Carl head to Rick's hometown to find weapons. They discover Morgan, whom Rick met when he woke up from his coma, and he joins Rick's survivors.

Volume 11: Fear the Hunters (Issues 61–66)

Rick and company continue their journey to Washington and begin to suspect they are being stalked by someone in the woods. They meet a pastor and join him at his church. Dale is kidnapped from the church during the night by a band of cannibals. Dale is reunited with his friends before he dies. Rick's group, enraged, hunt down the cannibals and torture them to death.

Volume 12: Life Among Them (Issues 67–72)

The group continue to Washington, during which they discover that Eugene was lying about having a cure to stop the outbreak. They run across a friendly man named Aaron who claims he is trustworthy and can escort them to a large, walled-off community of survivors called the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Alexandria Safe Zone is a walled community led by a man named Douglas Monroe. Rick's weary band finds Alexandria's stability a welcome change although they remain suspicious.

Volume 13: Too Far Gone (Issues 73–78)

Rick's group settles into the Alexandria Safe-Zone and take jobs in the community. Rick, as constable, tries to increase safety and stability when he stops a dangerous man inside the community. Scavengers arrive and threaten the community. Alexandria wins the battle but alert a massive herd of hundreds of zombies to their presence. Rick takes command of the community.

Volume 14: No Way Out (Issues 79–84)

Rick and company step up as community leaders despite objections from some of its residents. Alexandria's citizens discover they have bigger problems when they discover the zombie horde breaking down the fence. Walkers breach Alexandria's walls and begin to overrun the community. During the battle Douglas is killed after accidentally shooting Carl in the eye. Alexandria's residents face down the horde and save their town.

Volume 15: We Find Ourselves (Issues 85–90)

The Alexandria Safe-Zone recuperates from the herd's attack and Rick makes decisions that will lead to Alexandria's long-term sustainability. Carl is in a coma following his injury and his survival is unclear. Some residents question the bold choices Rick makes for their community and attempt to seize control of Alexandria. Rick quashes the rebellion. Carl awakens with amnesia.

Volume 16: A Larger World (Issues 91–96)

Alexandrians encounter a man named Paul Monroe while searching the wastes for supplies. Monroe claims he is a recruiter for a nearby band of 200 or more people called the Hilltop Colony. Rick and others go to the Hilltop Colony and find its appearance seems to be even safer than that of Alexandria, although it has a dangerous enemy called The Saviors. The Saviors demand half of the colony's food and supplies, in exchange for killing nearby walkers.

Volume 17: Something to Fear (Issues 97–102)

Rick and crew confront the Hilltop Colony's enemy, the Saviors. The Saviors are a brutal gang led by a man named Negan. Rick underestimates the Saviors and dismisses their threat level until his best friends, including Glenn and Abraham, are brutally killed.

List of characters[edit]

Rick Grimes is the main character, a deputy who is comatose when the zombie apocalypse begins. With his wife Lori and son Carl, he joins with groups other survivors. He is joined by former best friend Shane, who secretly has a sexual relationship with Lori. The group consists of firm clerk and college graduate Andrea and her sister Amy, a mechanic named Jim, pizza delivery boy Glenn, car salesman Dale, shoe salesman Allen and his wife, Donna as well as their children, Ben and Billy. Lori and Carl form friendships with other survivors such as Carol and Sophia.

After leaving the camp, Rick gains a right-hand man and close friendship in Tyreese, who is accompanied by his daughter and her boyfriend. They soon find a farm run by Hershel Greene. Among Hershel's seven children is Maggie Greene, who forms a relationship with Glenn. As the group settle at a prison, they become conflicted with a group of surviving prisoners. Otis meets a katana-wielding survivor named Michonne, who is brought into the group, but struggles to acclimate, facing her own demons. Michonne, Rick and Glenn are later held in captivity by The Governor, a leader of a town called Woodbury who plan to take over the prison. Other Woodbury residents include Alice Warren, who changes sides to Rick's group and delivers Lori's baby, Bob Stookey, an army medic responsible for saving The Governor's life and Lilly, one of The Governor's soldiers.

After the prison assault, the remaining group survivors regroup at Hershel's farm, and meet Abraham Ford, Eugene Porter and Rosita Espinosa. The group travel to Washington DC where they are hunted by Chris, encounter Gabriel Stokes, a priest, and are then recruited by Aaron and his boyfriend, Eric to join the Alexandria Safe-Zone, run by congressman, Douglas Monroe. Among the residents are Heath and Dr. Denise Cloyd, who quickly become close allies to the core group, and eventually the conflicted Nicholas. Douglas' son, Spencer tries to form a relationship with Andrea. Rick falls in love with Jessie Anderson, an abused wife. Abraham forms a relationship with Holly, a member of the construction crew. A group of men, known as The Scavengers, tries to conquer Alexandria; the fight attracts a pack of walkers that invades the safe zone, leading to the death of a lot of Alexandrians. Later, the safe zone starts a trading network with the Hilltop Colony, with help from its scout Paul 'Jesus' Monroe. However, their safety is again threatened by the psychopathic Negan and his group known as The Saviors who reside in a factory. One of the Saviors, Dwight becomes an ally with the communities. The Hilltop and Alexandria join with The Kingdom run by King Ezekiel in a war against the Saviors.

After the war, newcomers such as Magna and Dante are introduced into the series. Another community out at sea is established, as well as safety perimeters across the DC area, which is violated by the presence of the Whisperers, a tribe of people disguised as the dead who have rejected the notion of re-establishing civilization. The leader, Alpha, antagonizes Rick as her daughter, Lydia, forms a sexual relationship with Carl. When Alpha's second in command, Beta, takes leadership of the group, he declares war against the communities.

The undead/reanimated[edit]

The 'zombie idea' developed by George Romero does not exist in The Walking Dead universe; hence, of all the myriad terms used to describe the undead by different communities, the word 'zombie' has been deliberately avoided. While it has been used extremely rarely in the comics, it has never been used in the television adaptation.

Rick's group classifies the undead as either walkers, roamers or lurkers, the former being more likely to venture toward a loud noise in search of human prey. Other names have been used by characters in the series, including biters and stinkers. The undead follow and mimic each other, which can result in enormous hordes travelling together, 'walking nonstop, following a sound they've all forgotten,' as Abraham puts it.[12]

Reception[edit]

Co-creator Robert Kirkman signing a copy of the first issue at the 2011 New York Comic Con.

The series received critical acclaim, winning the Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series in 2010[13] and prompting Eric Sunde of IGN comics to call it 'one of the best monthly comics available'.[14] Among its fans are author Max Brooks.[15] Because of the popularity of the series, which increased considerably when it was adapted into a television series of the same name, artist Tony Moore's original artwork for the series' early issues has gone up in value; on the March 28, 2013 episode of the VH1 reality television series For What It's Worth, Moore's original artwork for Page 7 of issue #1 was professionally appraised to be worth $20,000.[16]

Other media[edit]

Television adaptations[edit]

AMC picked up the rights to produce a show based on the comic in 2009.[17][18] It ordered a pilot episode on January 21, 2010[19] and began filming on May 15, 2010.[20] The series premiered on October 31, 2010 with high ratings.[21] On November 8, 2010, after broadcasting two episodes, AMC renewed The Walking Dead for a second season of 13 episodes,[22] which began on October 16, 2011.[23] The TV show is loosely inspired by the comic, introducing new characters and deviating from the comic in certain plot points.

The fifth season premiered on October 12, 2014, with Scott M. Gimple as the show's third showrunner. Gimple has said that he would stay closer in line to the comic book series events 'as much as possible', but ultimately remix stories with certain characters, referencing original characters introduced to the show and deceased characters alive in the comic book as a reason for this.[24]Robert Kirkman himself has mentioned that the series will follow much closer to the comic series with Gimple's run.[25] With the series' ninth season, which started broadcast in October 2018, Angela Kang was promoted to showrunner with Gimple now in charge of all Walking Dead properties at AMC. This also was accompanied by the largest deviation from the comics, with the departure of Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, from the show, though Lincoln will reprise Rick in three feature-length films to be produced as AMC Originals that continue Rick's story with Kirkman's involvement.[26][27][28][29]

A companion television series, titled Fear the Walking Dead, debuted on AMC on August 23, 2015.[30] The series features new original characters, and it is set in the city of Los Angeles, California starting prior to the zombie apocalypse. It explores these new characters as the apocalypse begins. The series was created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, with Erickson serving as showrunner for the series. AMC ordered the series for a two-season commitment, with the first season consisting of six episodes.[31]

Animation comic[edit]

AMC released an animated short of the first part of Issue No. 1 of the comic with animation by Juice Films, voice acting by Phil LaMarr and art by Tony Moore.[32]

The Walking Dead: The Game[edit]

On February 18, 2011, Telltale Games announced plans to create an episodic video game based on the series,[33] which was scheduled to debut in fall 2011 and was released worldwide in April 2012. The Walking Dead: The Game consists of five episodes, released between April and November 2012. Additional downloadable content, 400 Days, was released in July 2013. Kirkman has said that, unlike typical zombie games such as Left 4 Dead, 'it [focuses] more on characterization and emotion than action'.[34]

The first episode of the sequel, The Walking Dead: Season Two, was released in December 2013 with episode 2 being released in March 2014, episode 3 in May 2014, episode 4 in July 2014 and episode 5 in August 2014.

The first episode of the second sequel, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, was released in December 2016 with episode 2 being released December 2016, episode 3 in March 2017, episode 4 in April 2017 and episode 5 in May 2017.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season was released August 14, 2018; however, it was halted and on September 21, 2018, most of the staff was 'laid off' because of money issues. But as of October 6, Skybound founder and creator of The Walking Dead comic series, Robert Kirkman, has announced he will fund the last 2 episodes for he believes it is the ending the fans deserve.

The Walking Dead: The Game received widespread critical acclaim, with reviews giving praise for the emotion, characters, and plot.

The Walking Dead: All Out War[edit]

In January 2016, the Kings of War creator Mantic Games announced plans to release a tabletop miniature wargame based on The Walking Dead, named The Walking Dead: All Out War. The miniatures game was funded through the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter. This product is available for order and first began shipping to backers on 7 November 2016.

Novels[edit]

A series of novels based on the comics, written by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga, were released between 2011 and 2014 focusing on the antagonist 'The Governor'. Taking place in the initial outbreak, the books chronicle his experiences from surviving in the newly ravaged world to the establishment of himself as leader of Woodbury, and finally tying up the conclusion to the prison arc storyline in the comics.

Following The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor, Bonansinga continued the Walking Dead novels as sole author, with Kirkman's name affixed to the title.
