If you’ve seen the new Walking Dead TV show on AMC and think you know the whole story of Rick and his band of survivors, think again. Robert Kirkman's zombie graphic novel is drastically different than the TV version. As in any good zombie story, it's gory, brutal, and intense. I kept getting attached to characters only to have them killed without any foreshadowing or preparation. The most interesting thing about Kirkman’s story is that the zombies become almost a side plot. The rag-tag survivors turn on each other and deal out death just as freely as the undead. Be warned though, this is not before bed reading. Kirkman’s zombie thriller gave me plenty of nightmares. - Camilla
