Goodreads Summary:  
Introducing the first eight volumes of the fan-favorite, New York Times Best Seller series collected into one massive paperback collection.
In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living. With The Walking Dead #1-48, this compendium features more than one thousand pages chronicling the start of Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning story of zombie horror, from Rick Grimes waking up alone in a hospital, his band of survivors seeking refuge on an isolated farm and the controversial introduction of Woodbury despot, The Governor.

I had to pull off this series when I began having problems finding copies of the comics that I was up to from the library. I finally broke down and bought the Compendium One. This is a brick of a book! I got tennis elbow from holding it for so long. I totally loved this novel! The pictures are so well drawn and the story beautifully told. Although I did find myself having a hard time not comparing it to the TV show. And I missed Darryl Dixon. I guess I'm off to buy the second compendium now.  :)


  1. Wow! I can't believe this is over 1,000 pages.
    I'm glad you enjoyed it. I still have a lot of catching up to do.

  2. And it's just the first "compendium" there's still at least one more.
