has anybody read the comics? Are they any good?
Yes, they are. Take a look through the thread, you'll find lots of recommendations to check out the comics and at least a couple posts detailing the collected editions that are available. A link to a free online copy of issue #1 has also been posted a couple of times.
Image Comics has recently announced a "Walking Dead Weekly" series that reprints the entire series, week by week. Contact your local comic book store for details.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention Comic Book Supermarket, at www.comicbooksupermarket.com
, right here in Omaha, where new issues are 35% off and bagged and boarded for your viewing convenience. Tell Mitch that Jeff sent you.
