Robert Kirkman is a New York Times bestselling author known for being the cultural zeitgeist of the comic book industry. He maintains one prerogative in every undertaking: quality. It is Kirkman's belief that good people who produce good writing and good ideas make comics people love. Kirkman was recently made partner at Image Comics, and AMC is adapting his bestselling series, The Walking Dead, into a TV series (set to debut in October 2010).
“Chapter One: Days Gone By” – After being involved in a shoot-out, cop Rick awakes from a coma isolated, but not alone, in a local hospital. Apparently, in the time he was out, something has shifted in the world and now the dead walk…
“Chapter Two: Miles Behind Us” – Having given up on immediate rescue–the group now just pursues safety. This section is most notable for the introduction of Tyreese, a natural leader who forges a strong alliance with Rick. A gated community seems just perfect and the group is thrilled by the prospect of some normalcy. But all is not as it seems, and “The Walking Dead” establishes that no one is safe…
“Chapter Three: Safety Behind Bars” finds our ragtag band of survivors moving into a new safe haven. This one has real promise–it's a well secured prison. While Chapter Two has forced us to confront the fact that no one is safe, new hope springs alive…
“Chapter Four: The Heart's Desire” – Rick takes another controversial step to defend his tribe. Is he losing his humanity or doing whatever is necessary to survive? As a new character is introduced, the enigmatic warrior Michonne, things start to unravel for Tyreese.
“Chapter Five: The Best Defense” . Tracking a downed helicopter, Rick, Glenn and Michonne head off to look for survivors. What they discover instead is another encampment–a whole town fenced off and self sufficient.
“Chapter Six: This Sorrowful Life” picks up with Rick, Glenn and Michonne held captive as the ruthless “Governor” tries to extract the location of their camp. Finding unexpected allies in the doctor, his young assistant, and a perimeter guard Martinez–a plot to escape has been hatched.
“Chapter Seven: The Calm Before” – A small band rounding up supplies faces down more of the “Governor's” men. Then the group, wary of being discovered by their newfound enemy, starts to become complacent when no sign is of attack comes over the next few weeks. We see normalcy start to return as Rick and Lori confront unpleasant aspects of their relationship, Lori gives birth, Maggie and Glenn consider a family, Michonne starts to thaw, the new “doctor” gets comfortable. But in this peace, one of the crew finally goes over the deep end with unpleasant consequences.
“Chapter Eight: Made To Suffer” reintroduces the “Governor” and what happened in the aftermath of Michonne's visit. The rest of the volume is an all out assault as the “Governor” and his crew try to break into the prison…
