The Walking Dead gained national attention as AMC’s latest critically acclaimed drama, shattering the network’s previous premiere ratings highs and earning a second season renewal after its very first episode. But before its television debut, Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead was a comic phenomenon.

James Lowder, veteran editor and author in the horror genre and comics field, collects some of the biggest names in the zombie genre, along with other top horror and comics writers, to discuss the series on both page and screen.

Contents include:

  • what makes The Walking Dead so effective as a zombie narrative
  • the television show’s surprising optimism
  • Rick Grimes as Objectivist hero
  • The Walking Dead’s journey from comic to television series


Joe R. Landsale (foreword), Jay Bonansinga, Jonathan Maberry, Kim Paffenroth, Lisa Morton, Kyle William Bishop, Craig Fischer, Kenneth Hite, Kay Steiger, Ned Vizzini, Scott Kenemore, Brendan Riley, Arnold T. Blumberg, Vince A. Liaguno, David Hopkins, and Steven Scholtzman
