The Walking Dead is an ongoing black-and-white comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore . [1] [2] It focuses on Rick Grimes , a Kentucky deputy who is shot in the line of duty and awakens from a coma in a zombie apocalypse that has resulted in a state-wide quarantine. After joining with other survivors, including his loved ones, he gradually takes on the role of leader of a community as it struggles to survive the zombie apocalypse.

First issued in 2003 by publisher Image Comics , the comic is written by Kirkman [3] with art by Moore (issues No. 1–6) and Charlie Adlard (issue No. 7 onward). [4] Moore continued to do the covers through issue No. 24. [5]

The original pitch by Kirkman and Moore was for a followup to George A. Romero 's Night of the Living Dead , with the series taking place in the 1960s. [7] Image Comics co-founder Jim Valentino suggested using an original concept instead so the creators would own the property outright. [7] The revised pitch became The Walking Dead.

Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar return as editors in this third volume of Dark Screams , a series of anthologies consisting of five stories a pop, written by some terrific authors. So far we've seen tales by the likes of Stephen King, Graham Masterson, Norman Prentiss, Robert McCammon and more fantastic writers. These books have been nothing but delightful, so my expectations of the latest entry were naturally high.

The book bounces back with the next story, Jack Ketchum's "Group of Thirty". This one tells the tale of a writer who is invited by a book club to be a guest speaker at one of their meetings. He somewhat reluctantly accepts, and when he arrives to the meet, he finds that intentions of the group are a far cry from what he was led to believe. I really dug "Group of Thirty", and not just because of how meta it feels (I have no problem believing this very thing might have happened to Ketchum himself), but also on the nice little twist on how the character handles the situation he is in.

Darynda Jones' "Nancy" follows, and this one had my attention from the first sentence. "The floor and I met somewhere between my fourth and fifth cups of punch." As someone who frequently trips going up stairs, I immediately related to this character. The story only continues to get better after that opening, following a young lady recently moved into the most haunted city in West Virginia as she tries to find out about the ghost that haunts the local freak, Nancy. This is a wonderful mix of supernatural and mystery, with believable, three-dimensional characters. Jones does a great job playing with some stereotypes, and not everyone is what they seem.
