I really enjoyed reading the graphic novel. I was curious to see how the books started it all.. it is really scary and thrilling!

Like many others I have watched the show and was thrilled with the graphic novel. The pictures were graphic but great and the story fast paced with lots of good drama!

Love the series but had a hard time getting into this. I would rather read a real novel, found the illustrations distracting.

A great zombie comic. After I finished reading it, I was afraid to walk in to another room in fear of finding a zombie there! ;D
I would like to read the next installment, but I think I'd be too scared. hehe.

Zombies! "Rich with complex characters and situations, full of gasp-inducing plot twists, it's no wonder AMC chose to make a TV series based on this graphic novel series."
