Great deal for the collection

The first compendium includes the first 48 issues or the first 8 volumes (depending on how you prefer to count), so the price is really good.
I know many TWD fans have always liked zombies or comics or both, so it's probably worth mentioning that I'm usually not a huge fan of either: I tend to prefer vampires to zombies and novels to comic books. However, I got into TWD because I've been a fan of Andrew Lincoln since he starred in "Teachers" (UK). I only watched the first episode because of him and was hooked straight away. I haven't missed a single ep and started reading the comics because I couldn't wait for the next series to start. Why mention this? Because I'd like to stress that TWD is very different from your standard zombie stuff. Even if you don't like zombies (or comics) in general, give this story a go.
Yes, there are zombies, they are dangerous and disgusting and eat people. But TWD is so much more than that. It's about humans facing the apocalypse. It's about development in the face of death. It's about morals, loyalties, surprises and disappointment. It's about priorities in life and about how family isn't a question of blood.
Yes, it's a comic, but if (like me) your main issue with comics is that there usually isn't enough of a story in a single issue, the compendium is perfect - 48 issues, that's roughly four years piled up into one book. The downside of getting into TWD is, of course, that once you've devoured all the 169 issues that are currently available, you will have to join the rest of us in waiting for about a month for the next one.
Also, no need to worry reading the comics will spoil the tv show for you - the writers often change details, add characters or swop or change storylines just enough to keep both versions interesting.
