I would love to receive a galley of this. Huge Walking Dead fan! Kirkman's got a great comic series and is developing a terrific franchise that is really taking advantage of entertainment media in so many ways. Great stuff!

This just stokes my hopes that Thomas Jane will play The Gov. on The Walking Dead after all! (Though it'll be harder now that AMC shafted Frank Darabont. At least we'll have a book series if the TV show tanks.)

I have all the graphic novels up to #14. I have let several people borrow my books just to spread the love. I am a huge zombie fan and I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead. The story is just amazing and I love the character development. I really care about what happens to these people. I had planned on buying The Rise of the Governer because I want to see just what made him the best villian ever! It has been a long year but season 2 is almost here:) No doubt about it....I love The Walking Dead!

I've been reading The Walking dead for a few good years now, after stumbling across the first graphic novel in a Borders on a quiet Sunday afternoon. That, combined with the horrible fact that the excerpt actually made me empathize with one of the most hated characters I've yet to see in a work of fiction, has me very, very excited for this release. Here's hoping I snag a copy!
