The Walking Dead: Compendium 1
The Walking Dead: Compendium 1 | Robert Kirkman
The Walking Dead Compendium Vol. 1 is here, collecting issues 1-48!Now's your chance to experience this gripping read for the first time or catch up on the tale with the first four years worth of material, collected in one volume for the first time.Since 2003, Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead has been redefining the survival horror genre with its unique and vivid account of life after the end of the world. Although the cast is diverse and often changing (including, of course, a great number of zombies), at the heart of every tale is Rick Grimes: former police officer, husband, father, and de facto leader of a ragtag band of survivors looking to make a future for themselves in a world that no longer has one. To call The Walking Dead a zombie tale is accurate to a point, but it touches on only one facet of a story that asks timeless questions about what it means to live. It also asks whether or not this is possible in a world full of the dead. This is a great opportunity to experience this gripping read for the first time or catch up on the tale with the first four years worth of material, collected in one volume for the first time. Collects Volumes 1-8.

I've been sick for 2 weeks with what was discovered in the ER Tuesday to be a kidney infection. Graphic novels are perfect for my fever brain at the moment so I'm really glad I'd just picked up this hold from the library. Today is day 3 of antibiotics and the fever and headache seem to have receded, so I'll hopefully be able to take my boy outside to play finally. I've been the non-dog-walking dead all week!! :(

JoyBlue Hope you feel better pronto! 11mo

Finally finished this giant of 1,086 pages! Soooo good! Can‘t wait to get into the second one which is patiently waiting for me to finish the other two books I started. Completely different then the show, it twists and turns and constantly left me with a “what?!!!??” Feeling.

This TWD wine makes me happy! The cork is a definite keeper, and the back of the bottle discusses the apocalypse then goes on to say "...In a matter of months, society has crumbled; there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable tv. Luckily, there is wine.' ?

#Comicthon - Possibly cheating here 😜 Taking a break to play episode 5 of Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. But as we all know, the entire Walking Dead universe is BASED ON a comic series 😉 They are good, read them if you haven't. These games are also really good. I would hardly even classify them as video games, they're more like interactive stories.

xicanti Stuff based on comics totally counts! 2y

Woah. So a few things I noticed: the Governor is way more twisted and evil in the novel, though David Morrissey does a good job portraying him in the show, he is also lucky that all he lost in the show was an eye...because he lost much more in the novel. 😳 I still didn't like Lori. What moments from the novel that did make it to the show were almost scene for scene, and I really liked that. Great read!

This was a reread for me and the beginning was slow (as I knew all the characters already). The second half picked up and was very entertaining even though I knew what would happen. I probably won't read these comics for a third time ever, but I do recommend them to anyone who hasn't read them at all!

Nearly every time we watch The Walking Dead, my husband says, "I thought this show was about zombies; where are the zombies?" ? I then have to remind him that it's about the survivors more than the zombies, so it was fun to come across this page this evening where Rick is explaining that idea for me.

I started to read this because of the TV show and they were my first introduction to the comic/graphic novel world. It's an action packed story full of flawed characters that you end up loving anyways.
I haven't kept reading these and I really should, I miss this characters, specially Michonne.

Was pleasantly surprised what a treat this story was! I loved it and am really trying to wait to start the next compendium. Excellent characters, plots, ideas, and really liked the focus on humanity and its changes after the world essentially ends. Super violent, some parts of rough to read, but it is so rewarding and addictive. Cannot wait to start watching it soon.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Excellent! And I have to say I love the TV series too. 2y

Here you go, @Jinjer . This is the first page of the compendium and all of the artwork is pretty similar. Some different artists throughout though. This one has 8 volumes included (48 issues). I think each volume has 6 issues. Frankly, I'd rather read it by volume but this was what my local library branch had.

Gezemice I just got into them! My library had the first seven volumes and ran through them fast. I prefer those, too, but I had to get the books after that. The compendium is so huge! 2y
Zelma @Gezemice I don't mind the size so much as the weight. It's really heavy!!! 2y
Soubhiville I've read the first 2 compendiums but the third is still sitting on my TBR. I didn't want to know what was going to happen last season before the shows aired, then my challenges took over! (I know there are some big differences between the show and the comics, but still) 2y

With four hours of sleep in two hour shifts, I feel like a zombie. Having bad caregiving times here. Had some alone time at Starbucks and now some afternoon coffee with a little Alan Bennett and zombies. Ahhh.

Jinjer I love #TWD but know nothing about the comic books. Could you show the inside of it? How many total issues are in that one volume? Thx! 2y
Zelma @Jinjer I know it is really different than the show (which I've never seen). Apparently different people survive and die in each one, thus different storylines. I'll look at it closely and snap a photo for you. I heard a great review for it on a podcast I like, so figured I'd give it a whirl. I have little attention span for anything but comics right now. 2y

Tonight's reading! I'm still trying to get over the massive slump I'm in...baby steps, I guess. The comics are way different from the show, which I was expecting, but one of the details I'm the most surprised by is the use of the word "zombie." I don't think that word has ever been used in the show! It's very odd to see the characters say it. :D

I only made it somewhere in the middle of season 2 with the show, but I was intrigued enough to read the comics. This is an interesting story with lots of action and thoughtful themes. I'll be reading more. Side note: Don't try to read the compendium in bed. It's a brick that is big and heavy! #comics

The comic character is entirely different from the TV Carol, and this Carol wins in every way! I love Melissa McBride's depiction, the way Carol has transformed to fit in every scenario she finds herself in. I want her on my side, and I want to be her too.

MaleficentBookDragon I'm right there with you. I love the TV Carol. I'm so afraid they are going to turn her into the comics Carol. I don't watch live and I go to work every week and ask "Is Carol still alive?". She's my favorite, and if she goes, I go too. 3y
Soubhiville @MaleficentTheBookDragon I don't watch live either, I usually catch up on Monday's. This season is disappointing me so far... 3y
