Publisher's Summary

The Walking Dead gained national attention as AMC's latest critically acclaimed drama, shattering the network's previous premiere ratings highs and earning a second season renewal after its very first episode. But before its television debut, Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead was a comic phenomenon.

James Lowder, veteran editor and author in the horror genre and comics field, collects some of the biggest names in the zombie genre, along with other top horror and comics writers, to discuss the series on both page and screen.

Contents include:

  • What makes The Walking Dead so effective as a zombie narrative
  • The television show's surprising optimism
  • Rick Grimes as objectivist hero
  • The Walking Dead's journey from comic to television series

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Overly intellectualized babble

Not much to say. A few of the essays are interesting but most just fall flat. The reader who I suspect as far more potential than these essays allow him to show, is okay. Worth your time if it is a free option but don't waste a credit or a dollar on it. Unless you are a rabid fan and just have to have everything Zombie. World War Z and We're Alive Lock Down would be better choices.
