I prefer to read the source material before I watch a series or a movie. That way I can enjoy watching the characters, that I already know from the book, come alive on the A/V medium.
I have not watched a single episode of 'The Walking Dead' series yet, but I am planning to, before the year ends, so I decided this was a good time as any to get all of the source material out of the way first.
The hospital scene reminded me of the opening scene from "28 Days Later".
The artwork of the book is very good. The decision to do it all in black and white is I think, the masterstroke. While the colorful representation of all the gory scenes would have made zombie fans drool, it might not have appealed that much to someone who is not a big fan of the genre.
Apart from the excellent artwork, the rest is pretty standard zombie-genre stuff. But that's not always a bad thing for a book in PA Zombie genre.
Now onto Volume 2.
