The_Art_Of_AMCs_The_Walking_Dead_UniverseAs you many know I am a big fan of the Walking Dead comic as well as the TV shows.  Just found out there is a new book on the way covering all three shows.  It is called The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe.  It will cover, “all in one incredible collection! Includes never-before-seen original sketches, concept art, storyboards, previs art, set concept and engineering art, promotional concept to completion key art, special product illustrations, in-world product art, and much more.”  It sounds pretty cool, until I seen the price.  Amazon.ca is asking $60.32 (as of tying this, July 23, 2021).  The price might drop before it is set to be out.  Which is October 5, 2021.

The Walking Dead Chronicles Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on December 5, 2011 by getbent57

Finally finished reading The Walking Dead Chronicles:  The Official Companion Book.  It was an interesting read but only for the die hard fans of the TV show.  The book starts off how the comic came to be.  Then the long process of turning the comic book into a TV show.  The long process of making the episodes.  Mixed into each chapter are info of each episodes of season one.  Was hope there would be so cool or real interesting info about the show.  But there is not, well at lest to me.

This is a good book for the die hard fans of the TV.  For the rest it interesting read but you should good and get the comic books.  I plan to get then all at some point.  May be not all at once but will get them.

WalkingDeadChronicles Was walking by the book section in Wal-mart, stopped in my tacks because I saw a Walking Dead book.  Was thinking now way would they be seeing the comic book here.  Picked it to see.  It is The Walking Dead Chronicles:  The Official Companion Book.  It is behind the scenes guide to the first season.  Looked pretty cool so I bought it.  Love this show.

From Amazon.ca

“Focusing on the making of the first season of the Golden Globe–nominated TV show, as well as the creation of the New York Times bestselling comic book on which the series is based, The Walking Dead Chronicles is lav­ishly illustrated with never-before-seen unit photography, storyboards, set designs, makeup and visual effects shots, and page-to-screen comparisons of the comic and TV show. Featuring new interviews with series creator Robert Kirkman and executive producer Frank Darabont, as well as the cast and crew, the book also includes sidebars that serve as a detailed episode guide, reproducing excerpts from early drafts and final scripts, and revealing new direc­tions for the second season and beyond.”
