I wanted to know what all the fuss was about The Walking Dead so I started reading the graphic novels. The Walking Dead follows Rick, a cop who was shot on the job and awakens from a coma to find that the nursing staff have abandoned the hospital (and him). Wandering around he finds undead monsters have taken up residence in both the hospital and his town. He manages to make his way home only to find his family missing. And so he sets off to Atlanta, the one place he think his wife would have gone.
I’m really enjoying The Walking Dead because like any good zombie story, it’s not about the zombies. The Walking Dead is about the survivors and how they cope in this terrible world. Death is everywhere, possibly waiting for them around the very next corner. And it’s not just from the zombies either; those left behind need to find food and water, too. And with other people competing for resources, the survivors are having a hard time trusting others. So if you’re looking for a good zombie story, give The Walking Dead a try.
