Check this out! If you're not reading Walking Dead you're a fool!

"There is no Zombie Apocalypse in your backyard. But Zombies have completely taken over Hollywood. Variety reports Frank Darabont (The Mist, The Shawshank Redemption) will adapt Robert Kirkman's and Tony Moore's (now Charlie Adlard's) 'The Walking Dead' for AMC TV.

If you've never had the pleasure of reading The Walking Dead, you should. You don't have to be a Zombie horror fan to appreciate the great storytelling that has propelled this book to the upper echelons of comic book greatness over the last few years.

The Walking Dead is dark, colorless and leaves the reader no room for getting cozy with any of the main characters. The Zombies, although major players, are not at the crux of the story. This series is about the lives, gained and lost, by the living who seem to flitter in and out of existence according to some cosmic plan, that ultimately, hasn't sided with the human race.

The protagonist of this ongoing saga is Rick Grimes, a small town police officer who awakens from a coma to find the world in the midst of a Zombie apocalypse. As the most prominent leader of a band of survivors, The Walking Dead is a character piece that centers on the life of Grimes and those around him.

The series is currently on issue # 64, with the first 60 issues collected in TPB. For more info, visit Image Comics."
