Looking for a last minute giftable? B&N is selling The Walking Dead Compendium, Volume 1 for $29.99 — half of the regular $59.99 price — but only until 2:59 am December 20th, so don’t dawdle.
At 1088 pages, this collection of the first 48 issues of THE WALKING DEAD have proven a great entry point into the world of Rick Grimes vs the Zombies — even at that price it’s a consistent bestseller.
BTW if you want some kind of idea of how pervasive THE WALKING DEAD has become due to the TV show, during a long subway ride home from a holiday party, The Beat overheard hipsters on the L talking about what kind of guns were the best to kill zombies on the show. Upon getting off the subway, we were regaled with TINTIN posters and a bus with a WALKING DEAD ad on the side. Comics: inescapable.
