The Walking Dead
I can’t start with anything else. This is generally referred to as “the most important comic book right now,” largely because of the monster hit TV show it spawned for AMC about a ragtag group of zombie apocalypse survivors and those kids they just can’t keep track of. Don’t expect the leisurely pace of the TV show in the comic, though. The predecessor to the TV show is a ceaseless battery of one jaw-dropping catastrophe after another. Sales of the recently published 100th issue were monumental and all along the way the series has been turning people who know nothing and care nothing about comics into true believers. This is the comic that I talk out loud to the most, generally yelling things like “Oh God! No! Please no!” I’m hard pressed to think of fictional characters that I’m more emotionally invested in. Just trust me: it’s like Girls for people who like violence and the end of civilization.
