    The semi-retarded guy in a Steven King book? You're going to need to be more specific.

    I read the first volume (not the compendium) before the show came out and, frankly, I thought it was standard zombie fare. Entertaining but not earth-shattering. Did you watch the AMC show first? (Just curious... I'm wondering if seeing the show first makes you appreciate the story/comic more)

    I watched the show first. I got the Compendium as a gift for X-Mas after season 1. I was going to wait but after season 2 ended I couldn't. I like the comics more because there isn't so much talking going on about dumb stuff. Things get done, decisions are made and it's action packed. I understand that the show needs character development and backstories and all that stuff. But if I have one hang up it's the talking, and talking, and talking. I was blown away by the second half of season 2 though, so my expectations for next season are high especially having read the comic.

    I know the show doesn't quite always follow the book, but how far into the comics are we at the end of season 2?

    watched the show first. it's very close to the comic in a lot of ways, but seems to get further from it the longer along you go.

    It's hard to say because characters and events are jumbled up. I would say it's closely related to book 2 but again some things have happened in the show that haven't happened in the comic at all and some things in the comic may or may not be happening next season from book 2.

    I just finished The Blade Itself. It took me awhile to get into it, but I think I liked it enough to give the next book a shot.

    Another fantasy trilogy I really enjoyed is the Mistborn Trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson.

    The hubby and I just got back from the European comic book shop and the Japanese used book store.... we have tons o' stuff now. I've got 5 volumes of Vampire Hunter D (graphic novel) to go through... and all 23+ volumes of Hikaru no Go to in Japanese to compare against the English version. Plus I got The Zombies that Ate the World vol. 1, Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere (graphic novel as opposed to the novel (which is FANTASTIC)), and Whispers in the Walls (a Spanish graphic novel).

    And that's not counting all the stuff he bought!

    (Yeah... we're prepping for Comic-con!)

    Yes he's probably my favorite character. I'm glad I stuck with it, because I almost gave up after 200 pages or so.

    I found this rendition of what he might look like. I thought it was pretty badass.

    I'm reading Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. I am really enjoying it, and now I see the movie will be released in June.
    I will try and see it, and hopefully not be disappointed.

    It's far from a new book as it was released in 2006, but I'm currently reading The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt. If the name sounds familiar, he's also the author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. In Angels he does for the city of Venice, Italy what he did for Savannah, GA and her denizens. While the focal point of Midnight was a murder, in Angels it's the fire that destroyed the historic Fenice Opera House. Berendt has a way of making each character interesting and once again succeeds in presenting a non-fiction book that reads much more like a novel. He needs to write more books! Definitely recommended.

    Just finished a few minutes ago. Truly awesome.

    I want to go out and get my hands on the rest of the books immediately.

    How many are there in total? And Kirkman is still writing them right?
