Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Book! Horrible Price! My boyfriend added this to his Christmas list at the last minute and I wasn't able to order online so it would be shipped in time for Christmas so I purchased it in the store.  I was shocked that they were selling them for the list price which is $30 more than online.  I got it anyways cause he didn't ask for much and I wanted him to have something to open on Christmas, but I was still baffled they weren't selling for the same price as online.  Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. To echo a previous reviewer, this series is addictive. It's simultaneously horrific, heart-wrenching and even hilarious - a true "roller coaster ride." As a reader, you're witness to these characters becoming completely undone; you see their unbridled reactions to a zombie apocalypse, with everything in front of them and behind them completely unknown. It's also a look at how people try to survive - and live together - when even the basic daily comforts are taken away, while being completely disconnected from anyone or anything else. It's a great mix of characters, too - seeing how they interact both with each other and as a unit against their enemies is really interesting and unpredictable. The whole story is unpredictable. I probably picked my jaw up from the floor several times as I made my way through the compendium. And as someone who was previously not a regular reader of graphic novels, I'm hooked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic. If it wasn't for the TV show, I would not have heard about The Walking Dead comic since I don't usually read comics (mostly because it cost money). Where the TV series only has 6 episodes it is hard to say what the similarities and differences are since the show and comic are both on going. I find however that the comic book and TV show are actually quite different so far. It started out the same. But there are characters in the comic that aren't in the TV show and vice versa, and also the stuff that happened in the TV show are not in the book so far and vice versa. That isn't to say that some of the stuff in the comic won't happen. I don't know, since neither the TV show or comic is complete. I do find that there are things that happen in the comic that also happens in the TV show, but there done in a different way and with different characters. Even though there are differences, The Walking Dead comic is amazing. If you are someone who wouldn't like the difference in the comic because you seen the TV show first or vice versa, then just think of them as two different stories. There both fantastic pieces of entertainment. The plot is good. It just keeps going and going. And I don't find myself getting bored with it, which is good. The characters are all pretty great. I care more about some than I do others. There is SO many jaw dropping moments! Like I couldn't believe it happened. I have seen comments that some people think where it is a black and white comic, the pictures seem dark or something. That isn't true. The illustrations are really well done, and with good detail for just black and white. There are three illustrators. Tony Moore was the penciler, inker, gray tones for Chapter one. For chapter 2-8 Charlie Adlard was the penciler and inker, and Cliff Rathburn did the gray tones. It sucks , for whatever reason, Tony Moore isn’t the illustrator anymore. I liked his work a little more than I do Charlie’s. Tony made his illustrations stand out, and you can see how much the comic book characters and the TV show actors look alike. I find with Charlie’s illustrations Carol, Glenn, and Maggie all have a similar look. But Charlie still does a great job. I was worried that because it is so big and only paper back, the pages might rip. Thankfully, not a single page as ripped yet. I bought the Walking Dead hardcover books 5 and 6 before I was even finished this. You will save money buying The Compendium right here online. And if you can get it in store, it will probably be more, which is why it would probably be better to buy online. I will just give you a little proof that you would be saving money. These prices are for online shopping. - The Compendium is: $41.54 (Which includes issues 1-48. - The Walking Dead Books (The Hard Covers) are: $24.38 each. (Which has 12 issues each. - So if you buy the first 4 Hardcover Books to equal the first 48 issues (which is what the compendium is) that equals: $97.52. - So your saving $55.98. Anyways you can figure it out if you save on other editions, which you would. I was just doing that for people who didn't want to take the time to figure it out. Sorry this is so long. I have no idea who is going to take the time to read this. I guess since it is a book store site, people just might. Haha.
