Walking Dead v.13: special Tuesday release!!

I'm sure by now most everyone has heard of the Robert Kirkman / Charles Adlard zombie series called The Walking Dead, but if you haven't read it yet or watched the new, great AMC television series yet, all you need to know is that The Walking Dead is a great character book, with characters that just happen to live in a world that's become zombie infested. The Walking Dead is not just constant zombie chowing on people action, but it's never boring or predictable and when the zombies show up, it's way more dramatic and intense because you never know when the characters are going to come face to face with the zombies.

The television version of The Walking Dead has some similarities and some of the same characters, but there are several different characters and scenarios, but that's okay also, because it makes it not a rerun of the comic book experience. The fourth episode, which aired last night was written by The Walking Dead comic and graphic novel creator, Robert Kirkman, and it was the best episode yet. Sadly there are only two more episodes in this six episode season one, but it'll be back next year as it is the highest rated show ever on AMC (it beats the ratings of Breaking Bad and Mad Men).

This week the thirteenth volume of the trade paperback collection of The Walking Dead comes out and Image sent them to retailers last week so that comic book stores could have a special Tuesday release (the official release / street date). So if any Ich Liebe Comics! readers who also follow The Walking Dead series via the trades are in the neighborhood of my store, Tuesday, November 23rd, and don't want to wait until new comics Wednesday, I'll have said graphic novel raring to be given good homes! It's zombierific!
