Super Secret Special Announcement!
FROM Monday, June 7th through Sunday June 20th, Comix Connection will be running a Super (No Longer Secret) Special WALKING DEAD Sale!
Here's the deal: WALKING DEAD VOLUME ONE will be on sale for a mere $5.00! That's right! The first SIX issues of the incredibly cool WALKING DEAD series all in one nice volume for a mere $5.00! Here's your chance to see what all the hubbub is before the AMC TV series hits the airwaves (cablewaves?)!
The Walking Dead is centered on Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer from Cynthiana, Kentucky, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse, most notably Rick's.
In the beginning of the series, Rick and partner Shane are in a firefight and Rick is shot and enters a coma. Upon waking in a hospital, he discovers the undead are in the building and town. Rick returns home and shortly decides to go to Atlanta, where the survivors were told to await help, to find his wife Lori and son Carl. He discovers the city is crowded with zombies and bumps into Glenn, a scavenger for a band of survivors. Following Glenn, Rick discovers Lori and Carl are okay along with Shane, who is less than happy that his former partner has returned. He also meets new survivors.
The group search for a place to call home, settling in several temporary camps, including a prison, which comes to the attention of an insane man calling himself the Governor. The Governor runs his local city, Woodbury, Georgia, like a dictator and tortures Rick and other members of his group, culminating in an assault. After the prison is made unsecure by an attack, Rick and the surviving members encounter cannibals and a township that is enclosed and safe, but holds a secret.
This is a very brief outline which doesn't even begin to touch on the one thing that makes WALKING DEAD so great... the characters. Seriously, it's the ONE comic book I have to read when we open the boxes on delivery day. Each issue ends in a cliffhanger and author Robert Kirkman isn't afraid to have terrible things happen to his main characters... there are no "red Shirt Crewman" here - no one is safe, which adds to the tension.
Buy it, try it, you won't be disappointed.
Six Issues, Five Bucks, WALKING DEAD VOLUME ONE... ask for it by name!
