I really enjoyed it. I picked this up since I love the TV show and know that some things differ greatly from the graphic novels. I have only read one other graphic novel and am generally not a fan, but this drew me in and kept me reading. I was disappointed when it ended that I didn't have the next part ready and waiting. It is not so much a zombie story as it is the story of surviving a world with no rules and little hope. Delving into the changes that Rick, a small town cop, undergoes as he feels compelled to do anything he can to assure the survival of his family and the group of survivors with them. The morality of the old world begins to disappear with the reality of the new world and the realization that no one can help them but themselves. Horrifying but compelling.
