The Walking Dead


Item Details

"In The Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it's forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople's amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted "Villain of the Year" by Wizard Magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial arc in the history of The Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes"-- Provided by publisher.

This book gave me a better understanding of the how and why of the Governor's existence. Very interesting read and great companion piece to the graphic novels (which are amazing, by the way).

I love the television drama series, ‘The Walking Dead.’ Rise of the Governor - The Walking Dead was a very interesting book. This book revealed a few facts that I had not known about the Governor. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

Quite well-written .... considering it's a book about Zombies. I enjoyed it. It's probably better if you have read the graphic novels.

Written like a bad screen play, this is terrible. Don't bother. I only read it because I love the TV show and I was curious.

Great introduction of a pivotal character in the Walking Dead graphic novels and upcoming 3rd season of the AMC tv series. It's not necessary to have read the graphic novels first, but it sure blows your mind if you have.
