5.0 out of 5 stars This is not a typical zombie story, which is awesome!, 2 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Walking Dead Volume 1: Days Gone Bye (Paperback)
If you pay attention to comic book news, forums etc then at some point you would have heard some praise towards the walking dead series. This book deserves all the praisenthat it gets.
From looking at the cover you may be thinking "this is just a comic book about a zombies" well this is not a story about zombies or how zombies took over. The walking dead is about a man who wakes up from a coma in a world where zombies have taken over and he wants to find his family. This is a story about people who live in a world with zombies, the zombies are just a minor part, the meat of the book is the interaction between the characters and the relationships that form.
I could not stop reading this from the second I looked at the amazing art, the book just finds a way to hook you in and keep your attention from start to finish. The characters are well thought out, you care for them, you want to see them survive and when major things happen in the book you feel emotionally attached to it.
if you want to read a volume leave it for a month then read the next volume you can and you will remember instantly what happened when you left making it a very accessible series.

You do not need to be a comic book fan to enjoy this, I know people that only read the walking dead and no other comics.
I cannot recommend this book enough.
