5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing the Dead to Life!, 7 Dec. 2008
By 
This review is from: The Walking Dead Book 1: Bk. 1 (Walking Dead (12 Stories)) (Hardcover)
Lets give credit where it's due - there are some great comic book writers out there - many of whom are seen as being trivial or immature when in fact they deserve their place in modern literature. The criticism is normally from a quarter where ignorance holds sway.

The Walking Dead is quite simply a great read - based around the trials of struggling survivors in the midst of a Zombie Holocaust. The characterisation of each player blossoms with each chapter - and by the end of Book One you will be chasing down the next installment. The series could have gone down the 'nuts-out gore-fest' route but instead manages to instill a feeling of creeping dread while all the time getting us to feel and care for the survivors. Primarily a Marvel fan, I gave this series a go on its premise (also being a big Romero admirer), and am now hooked. In Book One Tony Moore covers the initial art duties through the opening six issues - and though Cliff Rathburn is an quality artist in his own right, over the next six he does not quite hit the heights of his predecessor.

This is one of those books that I would recommend for people unfamiliar with graphic novels / comic books. I guarantee that most if not all would come to the conclusion that it is at least a body of work deserving attention - with many finding that it is a book of real quality.
