In celebration of this Sunday night’s second season premiere of AMC’s TV adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s , comiXology is slashing the prices of The Walking Dead Volume 1 through Volume 14 (collecting the first 84 issues of the series) as well as individual issues #85 through #89 (the newest).
Based on one of the most successful and popular comic books of all time, written by Robert Kirkman, AMC’s The Walking Dead captures the ongoing human drama following a zombie apocalypse. The series follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who are traveling in search of a safe and secure home. However, instead of the zombies, it is the living who remain that truly become the walking dead.
The comic series diverges quite a bit from the TV series and is definitely worth reading. After you’ve signed up for a comiXology account, you can purchase the comics through comiXology’s website, use their recently re-designed iOS app, or their absolutely brilliant The Walking Dead app. This is a great opportunity to discover Kirkman’s original source material which inspired AMC’s phenomenal series.
The Walking Dead
If you’ve never read any issues of this series before, I highly recommend grabbing the free preview of the first issue from within the The Walking Dead app as it has some special pane by pane reading options which work really nicely on iPhones and iPod Touches.
The Walking Dead Volume 1 is regularly priced at $8.99 and Volumes 2 through 14 are $9.99, and the individual issues are $1.99 each. that means on Sunday, you’ll be able to pick up the entire series for just about $74 (or about 87¢ AN ISSUE!).
