"This Best Selling The Walking Dead: Compendium Two Tends to SELL OUT VERY FAST! If this is a MUST HAVE product, be sure to Order Now to avoid disappointment!"
Returning with the second eight volumes of the fan-favorite, New York Times bestseller series, The Walking Dead, collected into one massive paperback collection! This is the perfect collection for any fan of the Emmy Award-winning television series on AMC: over one-thousand pages chronicling the next chapter of Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning continuing story of survival horror – beginning with Rick Grimes' struggle to survive after the prison raid, to the group's finding short solace in The Community, and the devastation that follows. In a world ruled by the dead, we are finally forced to finally start living. Collects The Walking Dead #49-96.
I will admit. I didn’t get in to the comics until the first season was already over. I quickly started grabbing up any I could get my hands on. Unfortunately with the popularity of the show the prices of the comics sky-rocketed. I saw the first compendium and grabbed it as soon as it was available. The price for what you get is unbelievable. The first 48 comics in one well put together book for 50 dollars!!! When I heard about the second compendium’s release, I pre-ordered the first day I could. After MONTHS of waiting it is finally here. The book comes identical to the first. Over 1000 pages of gripping, excellently drawn, drama-filled, excitement! I love the show. I think it is one of the best on tv ever. EVER. The comic blows it out of the water. Since you can draw more than Hollywood can show on tv, you get much more gory, gritty, deaths. They don’t have to cater to fans of tv characters or actors and can openly kill anyone(which they do without warning). You don’t have the exact same crew you get on tv, and the events are different enough to not spoil the show. If you like the show, if you like the comic, if you want to get in on the greatest thing since sliced human flesh, get BOTH Compendium 1 and 2. They are only up to issue 102, so you can own 1-96 in 2 books. Trust me, you want this!
I will admit. I had never heard of The Walking Dead until the TV show started. After watching the second season, I decided I had to read the comics. I picked up the first compendium and couldn’t put it down. As soon as I saw that the second was was available for pre order, I immediately had to have it.
For those that aren’t familiar, this is a collection of issues 49-96 of the comic book series. It is the second compendium. The first one ha the original 48 issues in it.
This compendium is just as well written as the first and does not disappoint. I love the story that has been developed in this book. It is now one year since the zombie outbreak occurred. Rick and his friends have just been run out of the prison where they had finally started to make a new life. Rick and Carl have been split from what remains of their group. This volume follows them on their journey to find their friends and try to get something that seems like a normal life again. Along the way, they will reconnect with some familiar faces as well as meet some new people. Towards the middle of the book, they find a place they think could actually offer them a normal life. As the story closes, they discover that the world might not be as lost as they thought.
For anyone that has watched The Walking Dead on TV, I would highly recommend this compendium. It is not the same as the show, but I think the story here is better. I also prefer some of the characters as they are portrayed in the book compared to how they are done in the show.
For anyone who enjoys AMC’s TV adaptation of this series and wants to read the comic series that started it all, the compendiums are a must buy. For $30, you get more than your money’s worth. The Walking Dead Compendium 2 collects issues 49 – 96, kicking off right where the first compendium ended at #48. I strongly recommend this collection for any fan of the series or anyone wanting to see what everyone is raving about, as well as the first collection if not read.
I could not wait for this book. I read the first one and this was a must have. Good packaging.
I was a big fan of the tv show and after reading the first and second compendium I’m an even bigger fan of the comics.
great way to get caught up and see just how different this book is to the tv show.Hard to put down.
Well I’m a HUGE TWD fan and I had allready finished Compendium #1 which is bout the end of season 3 on AMC. So Compendium #2, if my calculations are right, will get to season 6 if show runs that long……………..But of course it’ll run that long. Plus story, character narrative, illistrations are any TWD fans idea of a good time. Trust when I say this was worth every penny. Hurry please Compendium #3.
It was ok, It seemed to be a filler between the first one and then waiting for the third. Not alot happened other than meeting new characters after the loss of some from the first book. It was worth the money… but only because it sets up the third.
Wow, The shipping on this item was very fast. It only took a day to get here and it arrived in perfect condition. I love the Walking Dead and have wanted to find a way to read the entire series for a good price. Buying the Compendiums (Compendium # 1 I actually bought at Walmart but got #2 from Amazon), was awesome because they are all there in one place at a very reasonable price. Thanks as always Amazon for carrying quality merchandise at a Great price.
my son loved it! great present for him. Why do I need 12 more words? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
