I love the television show, The Walking Dead on AMC, so it stands to reason I would want to read the graphic novels too. This compendium covers the first eight novels into one economical book. This means you can sit in your chair, grab a beverage, read all night long then call in sick for work. The story follows Rick Grimes who awakens from a coma alone in a hospital to find the world ruled by the undead. Rick finds his family with a group of people and they embark on a journey for survival and trying to find a way to have as normal as a life possible in this hideous world. Even though the story involves zombies it is more human interaction and how people relate to one another in desperate times. I enjoyed it very much.
