The Walking Dead

Robert Kirkman is adding his own chapter to zombie lore with The Walking Dead series of comics. Following a band of survivors after the majority of the population of the USA is turned into zombies, we watch people placed under incredible strain. The survivors stumble onto a prison which provides the perfect sanctuary from the hordes outside the walls, but also creates its own problems inside as personalities start to crack and relationships strain under the exceptional circumstances everyone finds themselves in. At times the books asks what would you do in similar circumstances? What rules would you enforce, and which would you let slide?
Well worth reading, I found the start to be slow but once the story picked up I found myself caring about the characters and what happens to them.
