The Walking Dead Magazine reviewPosted 10:13 am on Friday, October 26th, 2012 by James Martinez
This first issue does a great job of spoiling the readers with everything The Walking Dead. If you are a die-hard fan of the comics, the TV series and collectables, this might just be one more item to add to your collection. If you’re like me and are kind of new to The Walking Dead, this is a great place to start.
This magazine will quench your appetite for brains…err content. The Walking Dead magazine is full of insane amount of content, from visits on the season 3 sets, to one-on-one interviews with Robert Kirkman himself and show runner Glen Mazzara. They also have interviews with the some of the new characters like Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Philip Blake, AKA the Governor (David Morrissey). You also get great Easter eggs, like short stories you won’t find anywhere else. The Walking Dead Magazine, TWDM for short, also includes a great short story about a man you probably know all too well, Philip Blake, the Governor, titled “Just Another day At The Office.”
I have to admit I’ve never read anything from The Walking Dead, but with this magazine and the TV series, I’ve become addicted to anything The Walking Dead related.
This first issue is filled to the rim with almost 100 pages of content. One of my favorite sections is “The Story so Far…” This is great at filling in all gaps if you haven’t read any of the comics. Fair warning, this is full of spoilers. With this section, you will get a chance to see the differences in story lines between the TV show and the comics.
If you’re a Walking Dead fanboy you will want this magazine as part of your collection. If you’re new to The Walking Dead TV show, this magazine will fill you in on everything so far, plus a few small extras to keep you in the loop. Pick it up at your local news stands for $9.99.
