The Fan-favourite Graphic Novel Series
The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. 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, the survivors are forced to finally start living.
Why Read It?
The Walking Dead is one of the most popular television shows of all time, and it's actually based on a long-running graphic novel series! Far more than a mindless zombie horror/action story, this is an especially interesting and worthwhile read because of the plethora of difficult questions the characters must confront. What happens if civilized society falls apart, and how does it rebuild itself? When even the simplest of resources are scarce in a brutal world, who is a threat and who can be trusted? How should disputes be settled without a codified legal system? These and other questions pose very difficult philosophical and moral challenges for the characters, often relegating the zombie hordes to a mere afterthought.
The mature and often darker themes and events presented in The Walking Dead are geared towards an adult audience. If a well-written story with interesting characters that balances compelling storylines alongside philosophical exploration appeals to you, definitely give this series a shot.
