The Walking Dead
You've probably heard of The Walking Dead, and if you haven't then I can only assume you must be one of them.
Robert Kirkman's ongoing story of what life would be like if a Zombie apocalypse broke out and didn't then get wrapped up nicely after a couple of hours is bleak to say the least, with the main characters beset on all sides in their struggle to survive. If they're not fighting off re animated corpses then they're fighting each other or other survivors. This down beat tale is made even more glum by the black and white artwork, it really is a depressing read.
But, it works. It has captured the imaginations of legions of fans the world over and was succesful enough to be made into a TV serial by AMC, which itself is bringing even more non comic readers into comic shops to find out more. In short The Walking Dead is a phenomenon!
So here we are on day 15 of our advent and I'm happy to announce that The Walking Dead Volume 15 is now available to pre-order! Don't worry though, you won't have to wait that long to get your hands on it, It goes on sale next wednesday. If your're not quite up-to-date with the series, don't fear as we have all the other 14 volumes of the paperbacks and all 7 of the Hardcovers in stock too!
