The Walking Dead: Volume 1, Days Gone Bye
It's that time again for another horrifying read! I present you this week with The Walking Dead: Volume 1, Days Gone Bye by Robert Kirkman. Many of you know The Walking Dead from the TV show that currently airs on AMC. I just recently watched the first season and thought I'd give the graphic novel a try.
The Walking Dead: Days Gone Bye opens on police officer, Rick Grimes, getting shot on the job. When he wakes up, he's in a hospital bed and can't seem to find anyone nearby. Rick does happen to find a lot of dead bodies and zombies. After speaking with a fellow survivor, Rick learns that this zombie apocalypse has affected not only his town but quite possibly the whole world. Rick travels to his home and finds his family missing and embarks on the journey to locate them.
I really love what Robert Kirkman is doing with zombies. There is a lot of gore and violent action in The Walking Dead: Days Gone Bye but there's also this great story. I'm not a zombie fan at all but I am engrossed in this series in both TV and book format. I cannot get enough of The Walking Dead and I know you'll feel the same way.
