The Walking Dead Collection
Rise of the Governor; The Road to Woodbury; The Fall of the Governor, Parts I & II; Just Another Day at the Office
Author: Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga
From the mind of Robert Kirkman, the legendary comic book auteur and creator of The Walking Dead, comes the complete e-book collection of WALKING DEAD novels steeped in the terrifying mythos of the Eisner Award winning comic.
The first volume, THE WALKING DEAD: RISE OF THE GOVERNOR, explores the heart-wrenching and horrifying origin of the comic world's most infamous villain: Philip Blake, AKA The Governor. Following Blake and his ragtag band of survivors as they carve out a terrifying path through infested subdivisions and rotting cities, RISE OF THE GOVERNOR is a fever dream of a road trip that explores the making of a super-villain, culminating in a mind-bending twist-ending.
The second volume in the series, THE WALKING DEAD: THE ROAD TO WOODBURY, delves even deeper into the dark heart of the Governor, taking readers through the fractured looking glass of a small town turned into a deadly dictatorship. As seen through the eyes of a troubled bystander, Lilly Caul, this rotting utopia crumbles under the weight of its own excesses and lurid pastimes.
The final installments, THE WALKING DEAD: FALL OF THE GOVERNOR: PARTS ONE and TWO, ties all the narrative strands and back stories together in a roller-coaster finale that spans two books—an epic conclusion that resonates for fans of the comic series in startling ways. Every dark promise made during the Governor's rise to power now pays off in a series of terrifying, dramatic confrontations. When collected as a set, these four installments tell a heart-wrenching and terrifying saga of apocalyptic horror as well as human behavior in the extreme.
