Comic Review- Walking Dead Issue #2

A while back I read the first issue of the comic book Walking Dead and really enjoyed it. So I sought out the second issue and enjoyed it just as much. In this second issue Rick runs out of gas and comes upon a horse. Like a cowboy he rides it into Atlanta only to find that Atlanta has become over-run with with the dead. They begin to attack him and his horse eventually overtaking and killing his horse. He meets up with another man who helps him escape Atlanta and joins up with a camp of other survivors. The best part is in the end (spoiler time) he meets back up with his wife and son who he has been searching for. It is a wonderful moment. I've seen the tv show so I know where things are headed but I still am really enjoying the comics. They are well drawn and what takes an hour on TV they convey in a few short pages. I again give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I've heard of this series! Now I want to read it even more, but walking dead? I already have enough nightmares. Will have to read in the day.

BookGeek, AMC broadcasted a TV series of it in the fall that was really good and close to the comics (all two that I've read). Was very creepy. But anything with Zombies is LOL.
