The Walking Dead

Posted: January 7, 2012 in Comic Books, TV Show, Zombies

Many of you probably know that the zombie tv show The Walking Dead is based on comic books created by Robert Kirkman. Since my childhood I haven’t read a comic book, but I got to say The Walking Dead hooked me back up again. They are very well written and illustrated and the reader find’s himself in the middle of a full blown zombie apocalypse. The tv show is equally well done. The effects and costumes are extraordinary and can compete or even exceed most zombie films! The episodes taking place in apocalyptic Atlanta are just great and I watched them many times!

As the tv show the comic book series tells the story of police officer Rick Grimes who awakens in a hospital after being shot in action. The hospital seems to be deserted until he finds a heavily locked door. While investigating something from the inside tries to pry open the door, moaning and scratching. Rick makes a run for it after his first encounter with the living dead just to find out that most of the population of his home town is either dead or a zombie. He goes straight for his house and realises that his wife and son are gone. Missing photos and family albums indicate they fled the town, leaving Rick a glimpse of hope that they are still alive. He sets out for Atlanta to search for them.

Although a lot of the plot is similiar the producers of the tv show have changed bits and pieces which makes me wonder how the Season Two will continue. Most of them aren’t major changes, but still fun to watch and spot the difference to the comic books. I don’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t read or watched anything of The Walking Dead yet so enjoy the trailer and remember; the comic books are a must read!
