For anybody that wants to read the walking dead graphic novel, the easiest way to go is to get:
The Compendium 1
I got those three as christmas gifts. I went ahead and ordered volume 13, to get more up to date. I probably should wait for the hardcover book to come out, but I don't want to...
It's a few bucks cheaper to get the paperback volumes instead of the books, after the compendium, you would start with volume 9
. The books are really nice though, and do have all the covers in the back in full color.
Sheesh, after this post, I should get a cut from amazon. :)
