Table of Contents
Tom writes: The graphic novel that inspired one of the highest rated US cable television series in history. Once you read this first volume you will understand why! Following a near fatal shooting in the line of duty, Kentucky sheriff Rick Grimes awakens in an abandoned hospital in a scene reminiscent of the cult classic Day of The Triffids. But it's not walking plants that have brought about the apocalypse - it's the human dead; walking again and they're hungry - for human flesh! Rick immediately sets out to find his wife and young son and in the process finds himself the unwilling leader of a small band of survivors. Some of whom have their own ideas on how best to survive while others become are overwhelmed they choose the path of least resistance. This horrific new world is brought to life by the expressive art of Tony Moore. His cartoonish style perfectly captures Rick's initial confusion and eventual terror once the reality of the situation dawns on him. It is clear that Moore delights in detailing every disembowelment as there are pages strewn with blood, entrails and half eaten human remains. The violence is not gratuitous it plays an important part in establishing the realistic tone that sets this series apart from the plethora of zombie fiction available. This realism is furthered by the decision to print the series in black and white unlike most mainstream Western comics. But what truly distinguishes Walking Dead is writer Robert Kirkman and his continuing exploration of what makes these characters tick. This is not just another story about zombies or the end of the world. This is a story about what comes after the end of the world and the price that you must pay to survive and this is where the true horror lies.
