  • The walking dead

    Evening

    I'm not really into comics or graphic novels a great deal, must have read maybe 2 in the past. On a whim I picked up the walking dead graphic novel the other day and must say that I'm loving it. I'm quite taken with the whole zombie film thing and this is proving to be as good. You can read the first one here -

    The first season of the show was fantastic- can't wait for the next season.

      I agree the first second was amazing. Interestingly the novels are upto No 81, whilst the first 2 tv episodes are covered in the first novel. I think they have some material for a few more series to come!

        Plus, the show diverges from the comic every so often. So they are different enough that if you have read the graphic novel, it may not go where the show is heading.

          And as if by magic an ad for the very novel appears above !!
          watched the first part of series one and not too bad. Not True Blood good but has potential certainly.

            I've not had the walking dead banner appear yet. Also, I've not seen True Blood, I take it that it's worth watching?

              it's my favourite Tv show right now. Has a real Tarantino feel to it and it features an oscar winner and british actor - always a winner!

                  Its on FX (and FXHD if you have it) think they are showing some of the older ones too (current one is series 3) I think channel 4 also shows the re runs

                    I love the walking dead. I've read all the novels but the last 2-3 i think. The show is pretty good as well. Not as good a s the graphic novels, but still better than most of the crap on TV. The art is fantastic, and the suspense is great.

                    i used to watch Trueblood, but that dude calling her "Suki" in that stupid Elvis voice drove me nuts. (and I stopped getting HBO or w/e) But it is a hot show.

                      I've managed to pick up the large book (think it has novels 1 through 41 or so) and I'm trying to catch to you NeatPete. Actually it's good that the novel and tv show diverge as you get two pieces of pie :-)


                      Thanks for the info DarkLord - I'll try and catch it in the week.

                            It was on FX previously, I had it series linked, but then the Sky box fritzed out and lost everything...
