Ok, so for Christmas (as we are huge fans of the show) I bought the Compendium version of the graphic novel...it is a beast of a book, but in the end will take less book shelf space and was cheaper then buying each novel seperate. I was wondering if any of you have read it the graphic novel or for that matter watch the series?

If you have read the novels and watch the series what do you think of it's divergence?

**SPOILER ALERT** this is another thing i am trying to read at the moment, but really am struggling not because of the story but simply because of the little time i have, i picked the walking dead comics up electronically and read them on the comp whenever i can find some spare time, i am currently up to just after they are driven out of the prison, as for the divergence, normally i am against things like that, but i have to say i think it is a good thing, because it means i can watch the TV series without knowing exactly what is going to happen next, yet they still follow some of the general plot lines, so basically you know roughly what is going to happen but the TV series still manages to throw in a few surprises here and there.

Also i think the Comics can get away with a hell of a lot more then the TV series can, i will be interested to see whether or not the TV show will depict michone's treatment at the hands of the governor. Her treatment in the comics actually caused a bit of a stir from what i heard... but either way i am loving both the comics and the TV Series.

both the comics and the tv series are both worth watching, the DVD/BD has just been released for the first season, i have the 1st and 2nd season which feel of the back of internet site ;) which i would offer to stick on a dvd and send up to but unfortunately they don't have subs with them...

I can't say certain for the DVD, but my BD copy of season 1 lists as having English SDH subtitles.

but yeah i recommend the comics and the tv show.
