    Just read the first 4 trades.

    Tyreese is hardcore.

    You think so? Sure, but...
    Spoiler:

    I like zombies. I like funny books. This series is a natural fit for me, obviously. I like the fact that while shit sucks for the survivors, they actually have a chance at survival if they can keep their shit together. But yeah, Kirkman has some unresolved anger issues. People don't just die, they get fucked up in awful, awful ways. Nobody give him a hug, though. We don't need to have WD get all Carebear on us.

    I was given the trades to read by someone from work, and I was blown away! The only zombie story I can think of that comes close to rivaling Walking Dead is Awakening by Nick Tapalansky and Alex Eckmann-Lawn. Between those two books, I don't think I will ever need another Zombie comic :)

    Can't wait to get caught up on Walking Dead tho. The last trade I read was 6.

    Amazon has its release date as the 16th, but still has it listed as a preorder. The last few trades have all been late. So, any time now.

    If I start a book in trade, I tend to stick to the trade. But TWD made me by the singles as they came out.

    and both Tyreese and Michonne kick ass.

    That is how I started out with TWD. That, and I have to give credit to Blaire Butler from G4 for opening my eyes to some comics, including TWD.

    I just read the first 12 issues of TWD. I have never read any other comic book in my life. I'm totally hooked to it now and I'm going to try to get the rest tommorrow.

    We sell fights and get into products.

    So, 100 Bullets and Y the Last Man are near finished and completed, respectively. I'm looking to start a new series, but I'm not sure if I should start Walking Dead or Ex Machina.

    Anyone got any thoughts?

    If you love stories about people, Walking Dead.

    It was the fist comic that all most made me cry. It's that well written. And it hit me hard a few times.

    If you go with The Walking Dead you will not regret it. I'm pretty hard to shock or be amazed at what comics do, but this is one book that tends to shock you in ways you never see coming or expect. Whatever you might expect this book will always find a way to defy your expectations.

    I've heard really great things about it, so I'm definitely leaning towards Walking Dead.

    It's one comic you can read where no one is safe, anything can happen and some fucked up stuff happens. More often than not due to human nature.

    Ex Machina is a great book too but you'd probably be better off with Walking Dead.

    That's true. The living dead and fairy tales don't really lend themselves to an apt comparison.

    no he is actually right

    fables is one of the best books out there and ex machina is pretty good too

    walking dead is good, but not as good as thoughs

    I have to agree Walking Dead is good in the "it can continue forever and be the same amount of good" kind of way. Fables and Ex Machina have to end some time I can see Walking Dead continuing for a long long time.

    I think Walking Dead is great, but I can't believe some of you are comparing it to modern day classics like Fables or Ex Machina.

    I'm not comparing it - he mentioned he's looking for new series, FABLES is always the first ongoing I recommend to people.

    I have not read Fables, though I hear good things.

    I personally apreciate the slow pace and character-driven stories in the Walking Dead. I think often times ongoing series can devolve into formulaic and repetitive drivel sue to NOT stopping and taking the time to show the readers what the characters are doing, who they are becoming because of the trials they face. Walking Dead may be slow at times, but the characters are EXTREMELY well developed and deep for a book that's only 50 issues old.

    The TBP? I understand that. It was harsh and fucked the walking dead world up.

    I just ordered the first 2 trades, along with the first 2 trades of Ex Machina.

    I don't really think it's a finite series. I guess it could probably go on forever if need be.

    It will just go on and on indefinitely. Kirkman has said on multiple occassions that he would like to write this book forever.

    Why not?

    Also: What is with all the people that accuse Kirkman of being some sort of racist asshole? Seriously, there are some fucked up people who write letters to this guy. There's one in this issue where the guy is just going off about how there's no way a white person could be as tough as the characters he's depicting. Do these people writing the letters even realize how racist they're being? NEWS FLASH: Just because you're black - it doesn't mean you can't be a racist fuck.
