So, I'm 28 and I'm a total Nerd, but to be honest I just never got on the whole comic thing and can say I've never read a comic book in my life. I do however love zombies.
After watching The Walking Dead - Season 1 [DVD
] I was totally hooked and like most of my interest, I look into them more and find out the whole series is based on a comic book, more specifically a long-running black-and-white one.
For the price of this compendium I thought I would give it a try and I honestly enjoyed reading through it. The stories are loosely the same, but go in different directions so reading/watching one doesn't ruin the other for you and I'm enjoying both as two separate media.
Since buying this I've brought 2, 3 and 4 and am only holding off on buying the next to prolong the experience so I can continue to enjoy the Walking Dead for longer.
So if like me you've never read comic books before but were tempted after watching the TV series, I'd say give it a go, I'm almost certain you won't regret it!
