The Walking Dead – Comic Vs. Show


h1 March 8th, 2013

Lots of people have had nothing but good things to say about The Walking Dead on AMC, but few actually realize that it’s based on an ongoing comic series by the same name. As such, the question inevitably comes up – does the show hold up to the source.

In a way, it does and, in a way, it doesn’t.

To understand, we need to spend a little bit of time talking about the comic in relation to the show. The comic has the same premise as the show: small-town sheriff is shot and awakens in a hospital quite a long time after a zombie outbreak has shaken the planet.

Where the show differs from the comic is in overall pace and tone. Any major television providers like www.Cable-TV.com will provide the show on demand or in reruns.

The comic is very bleak and isn’t at all shy about hitting people point blank with violent and tragic imagery. You never quite see it coming with the comic and the monotone color style only makes it bleaker.

The television show, however, takes it times and has more of a ham-fisted approach in handling character development, a trait common in most American films. They like to get it all out of the way.

The show isn’t a bad show, but it is still a show. The comics leave more of a lasting impression that is all the more intimate because you’re reading it. Still, if you want to give the show a try or compare the two, you’ll need AMC.
