It’s recommendation time again, after speedily making my way through the five series of The Wire that I recently wrote about, I needed something else to keep me occupied in the evenings during my tenure at The Kent & Canterbury Hospital.
Now considering all my other nerdtastic past times, it may come somewhat as a surprise that aside from the distinguished work of Alan Moore on the Watchmen, I have no other comic book experience. This all led me to pursue Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead after hearing whispers across the internet from a broad range of sources, including Charlie Brooker who deserves much credit for his acerbic wit amongst others who praise the series highly.
I’ve had the luxury of being able to catch up on the previous six years within the span of a few evenings and now freshly caught up with the tale, I’m stuck waiting for the latest release scheduled for monthly intervals. The story is on-going and so who knows how long I’ll stick with it but it comes highly recommended by me and many others before me. You can conveniently buy The Walking Dead in collected volumes, which would be the best way to go.
EDIT Here’s a fan made opening for the television series which looks incredible!
