Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga – The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor


Following in the footsteps of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels and the record-breaking new television show, this debut novel in a trilogy of original Walking Dead books chronicles the back story of the comic book series’ greatest villain, The Governor.

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 its forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeoples 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.

A few minutes worth of fact checking would have made a HUGE difference. A Ford S-10 pickup? A 20 guage goose gun? A 12 guage blowing off two heads in one shot from a few feet away? Feeling light headed from Naproxin? And the mispronunciation…. The story was good but these distractions and many more made the book hard to not listen to without feeling like you should be getting paid for editing the book. I bought this cause I love the TV series, but I think Kirkman needs to stick to comics.
