With 5 years and 57 issues under its belt, The Walking Dead is as strong as ever. Not only is it one of the best ongoing comics on the market, but it is completely engaging and constantly leaves me on the edge of my seat with my jaw on the ground.
Created by Robert Kirkman, the series follows a small town cop, Rick Grimmes, who struggles to survive in a world over run by zombies. Kirkman originally pitched the series to Image Comics as a print version of Night of the Living Dead that would never end. While it became its own original story, Kirkman has kept true to the “never end” part of the pitch and he has said time and again that as long as he is allowed to publish the book, than he will continue to. Well, as long as he publishes the book, I shall be reading it.
Newsarama has an indepth interview with Robert Kirkman on the series and its March to issue #60, which is less than 3 months away.
“…everything that’s happening in the book is still part of the larger “Road to Washington” arc that’s going on in the book. They’ll be on that road for a while—and there are a lot of things that will happen to them along the way…but it’s all leading to them, or at least some of them, arriving in Washington D.C and what happens after that—and oh, boy—let’s just say I’ve never been more excited about this series.”
