The Walking Dead Vol 1: Days Gone Bye

Title: The Walking Dead Vol 1: Days Gone Bye
Author: Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Tony Moore
Pages: 144, paperback
Rating: I loved it!

I picked up a copy of this for Dewey's read-a-thon but left it in the car. When I wanted to read it, it was after midnight and I wasn't going outside in the dark to get it. I wish I had. It was wonderful! I consider this my first graphic novel even though I loved comics as a kid. 

I am a huge fan of the show so to see what it was based off of was really interesting. The illustrations were good and it was such a fun read. I will definitely be picking up more graphic novels in the future.

I loved how the illustrations not only supported the story but in many instances told the story. That's a really different way for me to read a book and I enjoyed it very much.

Our library system doesn't seem to carry very many graphic novels so I'll be on the lookout for them other places for sure.
