Walking Dead

Another one of the best Graphic Novel is Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore which I started reading over the summer and tells the story of a group of people who are trying to stay alive in Zombie run land. Its quiet political as peoples allegiances change and it focuses on the group of other survivors along the way and how their attitude may differ from the groups!

It's recently been made into a TV show being aired on FX & FXHD (For posh people!) and so far it looks very good! Friday 10.00pm watch it if you can!

One of the best thing about the Graphic novel is that it has great Black and white illustrations and have not sub come to the bright and colourful style of a lot of its contemporaries. It relies on the story as the main selling point, but the style is excellent!

Today is also an open day at the university so hopefully there will be some potential students to show around and talk to!

  1. I concur! I have 11 trades of it and can't wait to read more. Kirkman writes a solid story with real emotional moments along with the gory horror. Adlard is a great artist (and Rathburn is a great inker!) and really shows the emotions in the faces of the characters. When i read it i get lost in the world!!!
    A great choice!
