A guest post by Chantelle Porritt.
A few years ago, a friend recommended to me that I read a series of comic books called “The Walking Dead“. And I was hooked! The series was focused on the survivors and their reaction to the zombie apocalypse as opposed to how many zombies could get their head bashed in before the next chapter. It’s a fantastic comic book series, and if you haven’t read it I recommend going out and picking up the omnibus right now. So naturally, I was very excited to find out they were making a TV series based on the books! GREAT! As long as you ignore the majority of the second season.
So we’re going to ignore the show right now because the game is much better. It is so true to the comic books. I’m one of those people who when a book I love is adapted into a movie or a TV show or whatever, I want to see the story remain as much intact and not messed with as much as possible. The Hunger Games managed pretty well, Harry Potter forgot about the existence of Peeves, and The Walking Dead series was adamant Hershel’s farm was worthy of an entire season and strange scientists who offered you showers in the middle of an apocalypse would also try and blow you up.
