The walking dead is a television series by Frank Darabont based on a comic book series of the same name. The Universe it’s based in is one where the world has been overrun by flesh-eating zombies. It has spawned a number of series and was generally well received and has been nominated for many awards including a golden globe(1)
The story of the walking dead revolves around a small group of survivors struggling to survive in a zombie filled world and struggling to keep their humanity and the story follows the group through their varying adventureslooking for safety and somewhere to call home, the story is almost completely based on a comic book series with the same name, the comic book series had 20 volumes, each volume having a number of issues (3).
The zombie plague in the walking dead is also different from most zombie plagues in media in the way that every single person alive or dead has the zombie infection if they die (as long as they haven’t received a head wound prior to dying)
The walking dead has spawned a series of games – one being made in the image of the tv series with episodic content and a more cinematic approach and multiple choices, and two (survival instinct), following the early story of one of the series’s main characters ‘Daryl Dixon’.
