Reading Room THE WALKING DEAD "Genesis of the Walking Dead"

Ever wonder how zombies are revived/reanimated?
Well, here's the explanation for the Walking Dead's undead!
Confused?
Oh, wait!
You thought it was the origin of the walkers/biters from this Walking Dead (whose TV version returns this Sunday) series?
Er...no!
This was the origin of the first b/w Walking Dead series!
Created by writer/artist Jim Somerville and published by Malibu/Aircel in 1989, it was vastly-different from the 2003-present series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore.
For collectors, there's good news and bad news...
Good news: There's only a four-issue mini series and a one-shot Special to collect!
Bad news: Because it didn't sell well, it's HTF (hard to find) and expensive!

  1. Thanks for posting that. I have a special place in my heart for the better comics of the b/w explosion of the 1980's. Though many of them are hard to find, I did just find an issue of 'Alien Fire' published by Kitchen Sink a week or two ago as well as an issue of the scifi book from Megaton Man creator Don Thompson that I recently heard Dover is going to be reprinting soon with the never published finale(the title escapes me at the moment, but it was also published by Kitchen Sink originally)
    Although I'm a little familiar with some books from both aircel & malibu I've never heard of this before. I for one would like to see more of this graphic storytelling artifact if your willing.
    Thank You
