Michonne and The Road to Woodbury

Posted: March 16, 2012, 22:43
Two interesting Walking Dead news today.

1) Fans of the comic know Michonne and my guess is that most of the TV series fans will once season 3 starts but today you can learn what happened to her before we meet her in the comic. In the April issue of Playboy (out today) we get to read about her backstory in a six pages comic.

2) If you read the book Rise of the Governor (my review here) and liked it it’s now time for the second book. The first told the story of The Governor and how he ended up like he did (a great read in time for season 3 of the series where we’ll meet him) and here is the synopsis for the new book The Road to Woodbury that’s released in October this year.

It is a dangerous world that Lilly lives in. The walking dead lurk in every corner, massacring anyone they can get their hands on. Nowhere is safe. But when a terrifying ordeal leaves numerous dead, Lilly and her companions are forced out of their tented community and out into the open. Safety seems to come in the form of Woodbury, a gated compound with food and protection. Yet it’s not long before the wanton dangers of Woodbury reveal themselves, and the Governor’s despotic rule of the compound threatens to undermine everything Lilly believes in. Because sometimes the dead aren't the biggest threat. It’s the living . . . Praise for The Walking Dead novels: ‘A perfect introduction . . . and a great service to all those folks who've walked with these zombies before',, ‘The novel makes for an exciting, grippingly intense and at times gruesome one-off read’, ‘The novel hooked me from the first page . . . begs to be read’
