The Walking Dead Story

The story behind The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead story is about the end of the world, the end of things as we know, and the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. A small group of people who have managed to find each other band together in The Walking Dead story and push for survival. The lead character is Rick Grimes, who was a Sheriff’s Deputy when the outbreak occurs in The Walking Dead story. They are always looking for ways to survive and to find other people out there and more importantly answers to what is going on. As they try to survive they are under constant attack from flesh eating zombies that will stop at nothing to feed.

Rick Grimes is a police officer from Kentucky when the opening of The Walking Dead begins. He and his partner Shane are in the middle of a call and are engaged in a serious escalation. Rick, who is shot, ends up in the hospital and in a coma. When Rick awakes he soon realizes that things have gone awry and that the new reality something different than what he remembers. As he stumbles from the hospital he soon sees that the change is widespread and that some sort of horror had taken place when he was in a coma. When Rick leaves the hospital you truly begin to see what The Walking Dead story is about, and the aftermath of the horror.

The Walking Dead story is set to give a different look on the zombie apocalypse as it is more character driven and tries to really give the audience a horrid view of what life would be like for the survivors. The Walking Dead story which happens to be built upon the comic book will capture both fans of the comic, and those who just love zombies.

    Okay what the hell, why did they change the storyline in the show. Shane is supposed to be shot by Carl when Rick and Shane have a confrontation about the attack on the camp near the end of book one Episode 4-5 in the TV Series. Someone start the comment battle here!

    Yeah in the comic Shane dies early, but in the show he does not.  I guess the writers didn’t want it to follow it exactly because it would be too easy to know what is coming next.  There was an article recently that talked about the difficulty of allowing Shane to live on in regards to the shows direction.

      Excellent point, I came to the same conclusion that if they followed the books too closely it would become predictable. Jakobi, do you think you could post that link to the article you mentioned here?

    I missed Season 1..what i get from watching Season 2 is..anything can happen to any character at literally any time and the survivors are resorting to doing alot of terrible things just to survive..
    IE: Shane shot Otis to get away from the herd at the FEMA/Medical facility…Under any other circumstance i don’t think he would have done that..i don’t know..i haven’t read the graphic novel books…this is one crazy series..the survivors are literally living with a knife at their throats everyday just to survive…

    Well, Daryl isn’t even in the comic AT ALL, so I guess they’re not being too picky LOL

    These people are literally dumbasses… I mean, all you have to do is make to somewhere like montana and build a fort, get some guns and axes (axes would wreck zombies), and grow your own food. its that easy. just don’t bring a bunch of whining kids along on the ride

    Also, Sofia is one of the few characters still alive in the comic. I would suggest to anyone who LOVES the T.V. show to definatly read the comics. You can get them for a steal on Amazon!
