The Walking Dead is Robert Kirkman’s remarkable tale of a Zombie apocalypse seen through the eyes of small town sheriff Rick Grimes.  This first T.P.B explains Rick’s back story and introduces him to a small band of survivors that include his wife and kid.  This book does an excellent job of portraying the despair and break down of humanity. The secret to the books power is that it puts regular people into the roll of heroes, a position they are neither ready for or particularly good at.

Tony Moore’s gray scale artwork is excellent and portrays the desolation really well.  The art is realistic rather that the usual over the top Zombie fare. The pacing and action is spot on and it leaves you hungry for more. This book was the start of a phenomena and is a must read for all comic and zombie fans. [ISBN-13: 978-1582403588]. 9/10
