Rod Serling's THE TWILIGHT ZONE was one of the most ground-breaking programs to air on television. Through its wonderful storytelling, it was able to explore and discuss prominent issues that are just as relevant today as they were in the 1950s and 1960s. Many shows and serieses have been inspired by THE TWILIGHT ZONE with varying degrees of success. The show is just as powerful and thought-provoking as it was when it first aired. Yet, there are many teenagers and youth who have never seen the show because "it's so old it's in black and white". Many of the episodes could have a huge impact upon younger people if they would only give it a chance.

Therefore, I was very excited when I learned about the series of graphic novels from Walker & Company written by Mark Kneece and illustrated by Dove McHargue. Selected episodes from the original tv series that were written by Serling himself have been selected to be adapted into a series of graphic novels. Graphic novels and trade paperbacks of comics are a huge market nowadays and, unfortunately, are some of the only material that many people read. Therefore, the graphic novels of THE TWILIGHT ZONE might be able to reach a key audience and introduce them to the series.

WALKING DISTANCE is one of the first titles in the series. In this story, Martin Sloan is an executive of an ad agency living life in the fast lane. He's become highly successful and seems destined for more, but he's very unhappy. He's nostalgic for his past and wants to go home again. After blowing up a tire on the highway, Sloan realizes he's only a short "walking distance" from his hometown. While his car is being worked on, he takes a jaunt into town to clear his head. As he begins his journey he crosses over into the Twilight Zone eventually learning an important lesson from someone in his past.

The illustrations are well done and the overall structure and tone of the graphic novel stay true to the spirit of the original episode. The text is written in a font a bit larger than most graphic novels and comics. "Walking Distance" wasn't one of my favorite episodes of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, but it is a good story to use as an introduction to the series. The book includes introductory and concluding essays as well as a page that gives many details about the original episode, including cast, crew, and trivia. For instance, I learned that "Walking Distance" is considered to be Serling's most personal because the memories that Sloan has of Homewood are based upon Serling's life growing up in Binghamton, NY.

Overall, this is a wonderful graphic novel that I really enjoyed and I look forward to reading more titles in the series. Recommened for fans of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, for people who enjoy graphic novels with good stories. Also recommended as a tool to introduce younger people to this classic television series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Twilight Zone Walking Distance 1 July 2012
By AimeeKay - Published on Amazon.com

I loved watching Twilight Zone reruns when I was a kid. I don't actually remember seeing this one on t.v. though. Which I think is a good thing because then I wasn't comparing it to the original.

The book itself has a nice intro before the story itself giving a bit of the background on the phenomena that was The Twilight Zone. I liked finding out the little extra details.

The story itself was definitely classic Twilight Zone. I kinda did expect some of the twists. (Maybe I did see this episode?), but not all of them. Since the story stayed true to the original episode there weren't any additions of cell phones or gps. But even without it being modernized I think the story over all is still as relevant today as it was when it first came out.

Honestly if I have any problems with the book at all, it is that it pretty much fell apart on me when I began reading it. (and I bought it new) So I really was agitated about that. But that itself doesn't relate to the review of the story, I know, I just wanted to vent to someone.
