Book #7: The Walking Dead, Vol 1: Days Gone Bye

Graphic novels are a new genre for me, but I decided to give it a go. I borrowed my husband’s The Walking Dead, Volume 1: Days Gone Bye by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore. This tells the story of Rick Grimes who, after being shot in the line of duty as a cop, awakens to a world devastated by the zombie apocalypse. He sets off to find his family and survive in this new reality. I’m told volume 1 follows the first season of the show The Walking Dead though it’s not exactly the same. It was an interesting story and the illustrations are great. Graphic novels are much quicker to get through, but this medium was a bit odd for me having never read much comics. I will probably stick to my traditional novels for now, but it was an interesting endeavor.

  1. Thumbs up for giving it a try! I have Compendium One and Compendium Two. The storyline in the comics is much darker.

    If you want to give another graphic novel a try, consider Watchmen.
