Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents Tina LoSasso's Review of... 
The Walking Dead
Free Comic Book Day
(FCBD) Special
From the 2013 Free Comic Book Day Event!


TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3867 -    Today's blog is guest blogged by my wife, Tina LoSasso! (Pictured at the top left photo.)

Knowing that I love AMC's The Walking Dead (but don't read the comic book that it's based on because it's just too dark for this wussy girl), Michael picked up a copy of The Walking Dead FCBD Special for me earlier this month. He asked me to review it for you since he doesn't read TWD or watch the show (because he's a bigger wuss than I am.)

This special issue by TWD team of Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn was created for two reasons. One to give fans of the TV show a reason to go to a comic book store for FCBD. And second, to give fans of the comic a collectible they won't find anywhere else. The special contains an original Tyrese story plus reprints of stories on Michonne, The Governor and Morgan. For fans of the show who have been craving more backstory, these are four great stories for you to soak up.

If you're a fan of the comic, you're going to want this because of the Tyrese story. Fans of the tv show will learn that Tyrese has ALWAYS been a really bad shot. If you collect TWD, you will want the special because you won't be able to get this issue any other way - it is unique to FCBD.

Fortunately, my husband snaps up free stuff like Glenn on a supply run. He managed to score a couple extra copies of this special issue which you can check out here.

As a fan of the tv show, I enjoyed pouring over this FCBD special starting with Michonne's short story that reveals how she got her pets. It's a trip to see her running around in a skirt suit and high heels. Next up is the original story of Tyrese and how he bonded with his trusty hammer. Probably the most moving story is the one where Morgan still manages to give Duane Christmas in the midst of the apocalypse. The special closes with the tale of why the Governor started his zombie head aquarium. The story shows show-only fans of TWD just how different the comic book Governor is from David Morrissey's portrayal. It makes you appreciate his cunningly charming depiction of villany much, much more.

You can learn more about The Walking Dead Free Comic Book Day 2013 Special in an interview writer/creator Robert Kirkman did with Free Comic Book Day.
