Description



Make a run at this incredible collection of "The Walking Dead" comic books. The most explosive title of the modern era, TWD began being published by Image Comics in the year 2003. This mega-popular independent comic book series enjoyed such tremendous success, that it was adapted as a TV series for the AMC network in 2010. Relating the tales of a "Zombie Apocalypse", both the comic book run and the TV show are still going strong and spin-offs are following.
