walking dead comics

Cheapest is probably the compendiums. The first two are out now.

The comics also come in trades (otherwise known as "volumes"). These trades cover a smaller range of issues each than the compendiums do (compendiums cover about 50 issues each), so there are around 18 of these in total up to this point in the series.

Of course, there is the traditional, single-issue comic for $3. Of course, buying all of them is a) hard to do and B) expensive. More expensive than buying either the trades or the compendiums.

Google for both the trades and the compendiums and decide which route you'd rather take.

If it's me, I'd buy him the first two compendiums and then buy the last trade. That should catch you up to at least 100 (I think). Then you're probably best served going to the comic shop and picking up the issues as they come out (and again, $3 a month for the best comic series out right now is NOT a bad deal). I know the second compendium ends at issue 96, and 104 just came out this past Wednesday. The comic ships on a regular schedule, one every month.

Thanks for the info on the compendiums if anybody here has one they want to sell after you read it I'm looking to buy one and doing each comic now would be crazy for me so that book sounds like a great idea.

Thanks again.

The comic is way more graphic than the TV show. If your son is less than 15-16, you might wanna read them first.

I'm only about 10 - 15 comics from catching up with the series, and the only real shocker to me so far was what just happened to Carl in Alexandria when the walkers broke down the fence and Douglas went crazy with the pistol...

There's a lot of good stuff in the series though, that I wish TV producers would have stuck to...

Something I wish they had done in the show is

introduce Tyreese the way they did in the comics. Season 3 premiere where they are on the road, mapping out where to go just before they stumble on the prison, Tyreese and gang stumble out of the woods. Rick confronts them cautiously and then walkers attack them, Tyreese goes off with the hammer, and the rest is history. Having him as part of the group from the start of the season would have made for more epic moments when they cleared the prison out.
