The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman
TEEN GRAPHIC NOVEL WALKING DEAD
RANDALL OAKS TEEN GRAPHIC NOVEL KIRKMAN
An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled-- no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.
Eighteen volumes have been published in this graphic novel series so far. You may check out each volume individually or....
...if you want to binge-read, I recommend:
The Walking Dead Compendium
TEEN GRAPHIC NOVEL WALKING DEAD
Compendium 1 collects issues 1-48 (Volumes 1-8)
Compendium 2 collects issues 49-96 (Volumes 9-16)
You will still need to request Volume 17: Something to Fear and Volume 18: What Comes After after reading both volumes to be current with the entire series!
If you do decide to binge-read, please be cautious, or you may end up like me, waking up in the middle of the night, screaming and holding out both arms in front of you in self-defense against an approaching walker. Embarrassingly, I can only handle zombies/horror in small doses.
