THE WALKING DEAD, Vol. 2: Miles Behind Us by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard

An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living. This volume follows our band of survivors on their tragic journey in search of shelter. Characters live and die as they brave a treacherous landscape littered with packs of the walking dead.

The second volume of The Walking Dead includes issues 7-12, and continues the adventure of a group of survivors trying to stay one step ahead of the zombies while struggling to survive the cold and hunger.

I really enjoyed it, and can't help but find myself comparing what's going on in the book with what's happened on the TV show. There are a lot of differences. They call them zombies, not walkers. There are a bunch of characters that aren't in the show. Hershel's family is a lot bigger, and the events on the farm play out a lot differently. Still, I love both mediums.

I'm looking forward to reading about what happens next, and now that I'm getting ahead of the second season of the show, it looks like everything's going to be new and exciting. Unexpected things are bound to happen! ;)
