I just gifted my boyfriend this Compendium for The Walking Dead (issues 1-48) and I can’t wait to steal it back and read it! After just a peek and picking his brain (pun intended), as he has already dug into it, it seems that this original comic book series deviates enough from the Cable series (my introduction to the story) that no real spoilers will happen if read before seeing the much anticipated second season.

I got it at www.ThinkGeek.com (of course) and here is what they have to say:

Over 1000 pages of zombieliciousness

Tired of those “new” zombies like in 28 Days Later or the remake of Dawn of the Dead? Everyone knows that REAL zombies do not run; real zombies shamble. If you’re a fan of real zombies, you’re going to love The Walking Dead, if you aren’t already familiar with it. Bra111nzzzzIt’s a saga by Robert Kirkman that expands on the original zombie tale started by George Romero in 1968. Follow former police officer Rick Grimes and his crew as they explore a world infected with the Walking Dead sickness. But best of all – even more that zombies! – The Walking Dead weaves a tale of what happens to a society that’s been torn apart and lost its laws, morals, and standards. More than just guts and gore, the saga of The Walking Dead is so compelling that you’ll have a hard time putting it down.

Since I always prefer written-drawn text to the filmed-visual interpretation…I am REALLY looking forward to reading the comic!
