Editorial Reviews

Review

"The books are a really fun read...It's an interesting look at the universe that you already know and you might learn some things about your favorite characters you never knew." —FANBOLT on The Fall of the Governor: Part One and Part Two

Praise for The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury:

“An entertaining read.” —ComicBookMovie.com

“The novel fleshes out . . . backstories and connects them, giving depth to people who remained largely mysteries in the comic books. For comic book readers, the novel is full of easter eggs and surprise connections, making it not only entertaining, but necessarily for filling in the gaps left by the comic books . . . ‘The Road to Woodbury’ is an essential read for any fan of ‘The Walking Dead’.” —Examiner.com

Praise for The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor:

"Zombie-apocalypse stories are perfect for miserable winter weather regardless, but for those obsessed with The Walking Dead (such as yours truly), this is essential reading. This is the epitome of a page-turner, and makes subway rides just breeze by. And, that end –woof."
—REFINERY29

“An excellent companion to the The Walking Dead comic books. The story is enriched by the novel format, and the characterization of the series' most hated villain is something no fan will want to miss.”
Examiner.com

“This book stands alone and is a compelling read for fans of the series or just fans of zombies. Watch out though, because once you get a taste of the particular Kirkman brand of zombie mayhem, catching up on past issues is just around the corner.”
The Ossuary

“The story makes a great novel. You'll get sucked in and can easily visualize everything that is happening. It's simply a great read.”
Comicvine.com

“It takes great advantage of the literary medium in a way that most tie-in books would not.”
TVOverMind.com

“Not for the faint of heart, this book runs on pressure-cooker suspense, graphically described bloodshed, and dark acts of brutality...This riveting character study adds a new dimension to the oeuvre by fleshing out established characters and plot lines.”
School Library Journal

I enjoyed the first chapter. I can't wait to find out what will happen next with Woodbury and I hope to see more of Rick and his gang. I love that the books explain things the comics didn't really get into, so I feel like I am getting to see more of The Walking Dead world. This is a good teaser!

Only thing I wish I had known about was that this book contains stuff that happens AFTER the second installment of The Fall Of The Governor.
