The Walking Dead (Compendium 1) by Robert Kirkman - Ashley's Pre-Reading

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: The Walking Dead: Compendium 1
Author: Robert Kirkman 
Year Published: 2009

In a world ruled by the dead, we are finally forced to finally start living. With The Walking Dead #1-48, this compendium features more than one thousand pages chronicling the start of Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning story of zombie horror, from Rick Grimes waking up alone in a hospital, his band of survivors seeking refuge on an isolated farm and the controversial introduction of Woodbury despot, The Governor.

I've been watching the TV show based on the comics, and it's one of the most well done dramas on television right now. So, I wanted to see where it all started. I know the comics are different from the show, as it is with all shows and movies based on books, but I think both will be excellent in their own way.

Expectations: I expect zombies! And an excellent plot that's similar to the show but also different, with some characters that didn't quite make it to the show. Also, a lot of controversy, mystery, and guns.

Judging a book by its cover: People, who I assume are the main characters, are along the top, while zombie versions of them line the bottom. I would most likely pick this up in a bookstore or a library, because who doesn't love zombies?
