Undisputed No. 1: “The Walking Dead” Comic Book continues to lead the Amazon bestseller list

The first 'The Walking Dead' comic saw the light of day back in 2003. Now the works of Robert Kirkman are experiencing a new upswing - thanks to new zombie series.

If you are currently interested in reading the “The Walking Dead” comics by author Robert Kirkman, you may have noticed that some books are no longer in stock in large numbers at both Amazon and Thalia. The zombie series is currently even topping the bestseller charts on Amazon.

New Perspectives: Why ‘The Walking Dead’ fans are now turning to the comics

Although Robert Kirkman published the “TWD” comics from 2003 to 2019, the author is currently enjoying new momentum for his zombie series. This is probably thanks to the current spin-offs, which are giving the franchise a new boost. Both “The Walking Dead: Dead City” and “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon” brought the post-apocalyptic world to life in 2023 – and made fans’ hearts beat faster. The spin-off “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live”, which is dedicated to the story of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira), will follow soon.

The former police officer plays the central and most important role in Kirkman’s comics. Unlike in the series adaptation, however, Rick is not abducted by the Civic Republic Military (CRM) in the original. As a result, character constellations and storylines have developed over the years that “The Walking Dead” has never adopted. The graphic story should be correspondingly exciting for those who have so far only discovered the series world of the walking dead.

At the same time, reading the comics is of course also the ideal way to prepare for the Rick Grimes series. Not only can you bridge the gap between now and the start of streaming on February 26, 2024, but you can also get to know Rick from a whole new perspective. His character development in the comics is more gradual, but much more complex than in the series. So if you want to take “The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live” to a new level in this respect, we warmly recommend the comic series.

“The Walking Dead” overruns Amazon bestseller

If you fancy browsing through the comic books now, you’d better get a move on. At Thalia, some parts of the series are listed as “low stock”, while Amazon also only has a few copies left in stock. Of course, this is also reflected in Amazon’s bestseller charts: In the “Horror Comics & Graphic Novels” category, the “TWD” comic entitled “Good Old Days” has taken first place, knocking “The Stand: The Last Stand – Volume 1” by horror legend Stephen King off the throne. Other volumes are also represented. Zombie books take up a whopping 40 percent of the top 10.

Robert Kirkman has published a total of 193 comics about the struggle for survival of Rick Grimes and his allies. These have now been collected in 32 comic books or volumes. You can find these either in well-stocked bookshops or online at Amazon, Thalia and Hugendubel.
