After retrieving supplies from the abandoned Police Station, Rick sets off to Atlanta to search for his family.
Where it all began...
I admittedly wasn't there from the beginning. As a zombie fan a zombie soap opera held little interest for me. Then I started watching the show. Now I've read all the comics/novels/magazines and have all the action figures and some T-shirts and dog tags...etc.
This zombie drama has accomplished something new:
I actually care about the characters.
I enjoy the show, a lot, but I find that the comic is so, much more cooler. dozen't, mean that I stop watch the show, never!
No, what I am saying, is that I also, am enjoying the comic as well.
Especially, when it's free. As, a college student...free is ways good thing.
...However, it's not as good as free popcorn
But, even so I truly enjoy this book - thanks for that!
I want to start by saying my 3 stars are for the book interface. The comic itself is 5 stars. I don't like that I can't conveniently use portrait mode with the comic. I only want to look at one page and still have standard iBook features, ie tap to turn the page, not have to pinch and zoom. Landscape mode makes everything too small to enjoy the art
