Welcome to Nerdy Things Thursday, a feature where I highlight and discuss one of the *many* geeky things The Nerd has introduced me to.
This week, we’re going to talk about The Walking Dead.
You may be familiar with this series, thanks to the recent television show on AMC.
But the story has actually been around a lot longer than that as a comic series. It follows a group of people in Atlanta, Georgia as they try to survive the zombie apocalypse.
The comics were condensed into trade paperbacks, with six issues in each volume. There are currently 13 volumes released, with the 14th volume in production.
Of course, we own all 13 volumes. And The Nerd watched the TV series religiously.
From what I’ve seen, the show is very gritty and the story-telling is really great. The Nerd loves anything to do with zombies, so that gives it major bonus points in his eyes.
The inside pages are black and white with comic-style drawings.
Apparently, there’s lots of hitting. BLAM!
The TV show is really good, too.
Of course, I don’t really *like* scary shows, so when I had nightmares after watching the pilot, I refused to watch any more. No matter how good they are, I *don’t* want to be chased by zombies in my dreams. No, thanks.
What do you think? Have you watched any of the TV show? Read any of the comics?
