The Walking Dead compendium 1 had me hooked from the first page. As an avid watcher of the show, I had heard countless times how different the comic is, so I was already expecting some differences before starting. I was constantly shocked or surprised by the subtle and definitely not so subtle differences. Without any spoilers...the Governor's story line was much more tame in the show, I actually like Andrea more in the comic, than the show, and I still hated Lori. I can't wait to start compendium 2 and find out what my favorite gang of survivors is up to! ( )

I started reading the graphic novels and found this humongous book that had the first 8 volumes in it and thought why not? I started reading the graphic novels and found this humongous book that had the first 8 volumes in it and thought why not?

So I finally read this after finally starting to watch the tv show. PhauxCon this all your fault!

Yes, there is a bit too much Marty Sue and insta love. And yes, it takes awhile before the female characters are allowed to step up -[the prison leadership discussion was particularly stupid, and I don't buy it. Additionally, it seemed to be brought up and then dropped right away. And what is it with the women always on top except for Lori?

But I still enjoyed it. ( )

I have only watched a little bit of the show, but I thought I'd check out the comics. This is an interesting story, with lots of action. I'll pick up and read more of the series. ( )

As indebted as I feel to Robert Kirkman for creating the source material for one of my favorite TV shows of all time, I was a little disappointed in the comic. The pacing seemed way off sometimes, and the dialogue was often clunky and on the nose. I probably would have been easier on the comic if my expectations weren't raised so high by the rave reviews for it, as well as by the great TV series. ( )
