Walking Dead- The Official Magazine Issue #1
This is the perfect compilation for any Walking Dead fan! I must say, the Walking Dead universe is expanding at the pace of a wild fire and this is one fire I hope doesn’t burn out. I found the magazine to be a fun reading experience and it contains just so much about all the different venues of the Walking Dead universe! It covers the show, the behind the scenes of the show, the books, the comics, the games (which by the way, super excited for The Walking Dead video game where we play as Daryl Dixon!), the action figures and collectibles, short stories, insider tid bits, interviews, notes to the editors, and great eye catching artwork of the zombies we’ve come to love.
I was pleased to see this wasn’t a quick read through kind of magazine, where you basically are just looking at images. You can tell the creators and writers really put time and effort into giving the fans a hearty reading…along with some great images and visuals along the way to keep the attention.
In this issue there’s in depth interviews with the awesome Michonne, actress Danai Gurira (who doesn’t love Michonne and her trusty katana!?), the creator Mr. Robert Kirkman (um, shall I just bow before you?? Would that be ok?), my nerd crush Chris Hardwick (host of The Talking Dead), Showrunner Glen Mazzara, and the wonderful artist Charlie Adlard who we’ve all come to appreciate his zombies in the comics (along with other comics).
This magazine really offers a little of everything and I’d recommend it for any Walking Dead fan out there, it’s definitely worth purchasing and I think after having read the first issue…I’m hooked and I’m sure you’ll be hooked as well!
One of the sections that was a fun addition that I think anyone would get a kick out of is “The Secret Diary of A Walker”, I think it’d be great to see this section expanded…if not, it’s still an entertaining bit to read from the walker’s perspective.
The next issue looks like it’ll contain a lot of great material and with the Walking Dead having premiered last week; the premier of this magazine, the release of Road to Woodbury, Walking Dead: Episode Four- Around Every Corner (video game), new Walking Dead toys and collectibles coming out to Toys r Us and such…well…it’s a great time to be a fan of The Walking Dead!
I give The Walking Dead Official Magazine 4 decayed sheep heads
