Over the past week I decided to do the Un-American thing, fittingly in Canada, and read the comic the series was based upon. Going into the comic with little knowledge of what to expect but "The Show strays from the Book", the read is absolutely fantastic. Kirkman my good man, you have done a great thing. If you enjoy watching the show and reading the comics you'll see that it unfolds as a new story on both platforms. Yes there are similarities but still a different adventure none the less. For those of you who have read and watched the series, the character Shane is a prime example. Now I have the awesome pleasure to read issues 1 through 96, and eagerly await the release of Volume 17 containing issues 97 to 102. Now through all sixteen volumes you are taken on this emotional roller-coaster of hope and sadness as well as awesome action sequences on the way. Now with out giving too much away about the series expect a darker look at the events that our favorite post-apocalyptic group faces. From what I saw that went down on the little black and white boxes of imagination, there is no way AMC will allow certain events to go into such detail on air. That being said you could only imagine what would go down after society collapses and there are no rules and consequences.
That being said and you enjoy, or like me vicariously live through, the zombie infested adventures of Rick Grimes, this is a must read for 'hardcore' Walking Dead fans. If you are some one who isn't all about pictures with words because it confuses you I wouldn't suggest picking it up and allow Andrew Lincoln to continue acting it out for you. However if you are the slight bit interested to see where the phenomenon AMC is cashing in on began due Robert Kirkman a solid and give him a little bit of money and atleast pick up Volume 1 and 2 of the Walking Dead. If you aren't hooked by the end of Volume 2 its probably not for you. Personal experience once i rolled into Volume 3 i just couldn't put it down and now I'm jonesing for more. So this has been the first-ever-brand-spanking-new-number-one-ultimate-edition of the Dace-Sphere. Check back regularly to see what Chris "The Dace Man" Dace is looking at, and no not just porn.
