Customer Reviews

This Book is so Great, i cant put it down!
Taylor Cisneros
Also, while this book is black and white, the art is grayscaled very well, giving the book much more depth than most black and white comics I've seen.
This Reader
The book is large and well made with a beautiful paper jacket around the nicely bound book.

I picked this up and read it over the course of a weekend. It represents quite a journey. The story is very believable, but I didn't realize how much I'd been drawn in by it until I finished reading. Right away, I wanted more. Robert Kirman has a short afterword in which he promises a second hard cover volume after the next twenty four issues come out, and I'm already looking forward to getting it. I want to know what happens to these characters next.

The story and characters are very well done, and the flow of the story benefits from it's ongoing nature. The characters have time to evolve, their plight has time to set in, and the world has time to start moving on. I found myself really emphathizing with the characters as their world fell apart and their food became scarce, I found myself getting excited for them when they found safe places to stay, and I found myself growing sad and angry for them as they faced perils not only from without, but also from within. Kirkman's story telling is straight forward, but he has a strong grip on his world and it's affect on his characters.

The first seven issues collected here are drawn by artist Tony Moore, with the remainder of the book being drawn by Charlie Adlard. Moore is a bit more talented, and his issues look a little better, but Adlard does a fine job with facial expressions and story telling as well. I would have preffered Moore's art for the entire run, but overall the art is good throughout. Also, while this book is black and white, the art is grayscaled very well, giving the book much more depth than most black and white comics I've seen.

As stated in the previous review, you don't need to be a Zombie fan to enjoy this book. I've never gone out of my way to watch a Zombie movie before, but I truly enjoyed this book. Strangely enough, I have now ordered a couple other Zombie books from Amazon to see if I enjoy them as well.

Its no secret that The Walking Dead is one of the most popular comics of the decade. So without going into detail about the strengths and weakness of the story itself, this review is going to focus on the Omnibus publication specifically.

The Walking Dead Omnibus Volume 1 attempts to combine issues 1-23 all under one cover, and does so very well. The comics are published without break to create one continuous story. The paper and binding is of professional quality, and it feels great in your hands. Also with this edition are some never before published behind the scenes sketches and drawings now made available for the first time.

For die hard collectors it should be noted that this is the 2nd edition, and not the 1st.

My one gripe with the Omnibus edition is that it does not contain the Letter Hacks section that is published with the original comics. But this small imperfection is only a personal opinion, and doesn't effect the quality of the story at all.

For someone looking to add the walking dead canon, this edition is high quality reproduction that will look beautiful on your bookshelf.

These books are expensive; but they do contain all color pages of comic books. They do not go along with the series and will not tell you what will or won't happen on the series. Many of the characters and their relationships are nothing like the show, which is actually the coolest part.
DO NOT ASSUME THESES ARE FOR KIDS! They are comic books but they are certainly not for kids. There is sex and violence galore. But if you like that sort of thing these interesting.

I absolutely love the tv show and have borrowed the first few volumes from the local library but now I get to own my very own copy of the OMNIBUS edition! It comes with a slip-case with stunning artwork. This is easily one of the best graphic novel franchises out :)

This book edition is the best way to read the walking dead series. It's very nice production and should last for decades in my home library.

The only downside is you have to wait a lot longer to catch up on the series because these books come out many months after the comic.

The Amazon discounted price makes it worth it, it would be tough to justify at the full retail price.

These Omnibus versions of The Walking Dead are second to none. They are very, very large, come in a slipcase, and have very cool covers. These are definitely for fans of the series of comics that also enjoy collectable, quality items. I would also recommend this for people who have only watched the show. I originally started this after only watching the show, and these are a completely different story that will keep you guessing. I highly recommend this book!

For anyone wondering if their going to get their moneys worth with this book I tell you now there's tons to read here.so much that the wealth of pages lends enough weight to this book to kill a zombie should you find yourself in need.also it's different enough from the t.v. series that anyone thinking its not worth their time wouldn't need to worry.these books cover a lot so anyone not wanting any spoilers because they'd rather watch the t.v series shouldn't read more than this book AFTER they watch WD season 3.

I knew that the show was based on the comic book series. I had no idea how much different the tv show varies from the comic books. I decided to buy this instead of the comics. It's much complete, easier to carry because it's 1 book vs all the comic books within.
The pages are large, not small like a paperback compendium.
It is well worth the money, which at the second printing it is half the cost of the first edition!
I would recommend this to any die hard Walking Dead Fan.
