As a comic book collector, I have a 75 issue head start on the TV show. Huzzah!
You're one issue behind then. I'm in your base, asserting my alpha comic geekiness.
Not that I'm trying to be graceless naysayer, but does this zombie series take the genre anywhere new?
To answer your question, the comic is more about how the people deal with the Zombie Apocalypse happening in 12/2012 (you heard it here first
), than the Zombie Apocalypse itself. How people group together, what laws to make for themselves, how they treat each other or other groups who make other laws for themselves. A few of the issues have the zombies as an after thought, if that. Might not be new ground, but over all pretty well done none-the-less.
Infinitely better than High School of the Dead, at least. Edited, Aug 31st 2010 1:01pm by lolgaxe
