The Walking Dead Book OneThis hardcover features the first 12 issues of the hit series along with the covers I'm 99% percent certain I've never said this before but I prefer the layered story of the television showMy first official graphic novel if one does not count the adventures of the Archie gang or Mad magazine at my cousin's house thirty years ago and I find that like McDonald's graphic novels work better for me as rare treat instead of steady diet Still its worth a try I came to the comic via the television series curious to see Kirkman's original vision While it is interesting to see the concept for the show I realized that I prefer details whether visual or written It's clear there is a well conceived vision behind the comics The drawings are interesting employing a multitude of perspectives that make it visually engaging The occasional large panel landscape panning does a nice job of showing desolation of an empty street or burning city Despite lack of color the drawings still manage to capture zombie horror particularly when chomping down on man or beast Sometimes the pictures are graphic and sometimes they are a stylized mess which I rather appreciated as a sueamish sort of person A funeral scene is done especially well conveying the wordless desolation of a survivor Overall the drawing stands out above the writing which is limited largely to dialogue with the occasional exclamatory word 60s Batman style BANG SPLAT POW Dialogue confines the amount of expression that can be conveyed with bolded words for emphasis and bubble standing in for uncomfortable pauses Incidentally zombies sound kind of silly when you write out their noises as nuh gruh I can't help thinking of a conversation with a sullen teenager The show sounds so much frightening precisely because we don't have the word or construction that adeuately conveys the growled or moaned sounds these zombies makeWhen it comes to plot there are a fair number of areas where the show chose to go in different directions One clear difference especially to fans that lasted through tv season two is how fast the comics move Whether logical or not these people are on the move and that's part of what makes the comic entertaining as movement usually results in some random zombie interactions Contrast that with the excruciatingly long plot thread of the show's farm set and the result is a comic that stands above tv in actionComic characters are a little flat haha compared to the show although there are several interesting ones that seems to have been dropped by the show writers As generally slap worthy as women are on the show I'm talking to you Lori they are even stereotypical in the comic They clearly and uickly become the secondary and inferior sex and the one woman who calls it out is drawn as dumpy and fat with dialogue showing her being judgemental unhappy and hypocritical On the other hand there are black characters in the graphic novel with greater presense and variety of roles The show also does with the tension of group leadership; Shane view spoiler gets killed off relatively uickly in the graphic version while his character provides a foil for most of the second season on tv I think keeping him provided dynamic tension and made sense in the creating challenging group dynamics In the comic he just seemed to go postal while the show had a slower build that better demonstrated a mental unraveling hide spoiler
