From comic to TV show and back. Next up in The Walking Dead universe is novel. Written by comic creator Robert Kirkman and novelist Jay Bonansinga (The Perfect Victim, Shattered, The Killer's Game), there are no illustrations in this book - just wall-to-wall words set in the Walking Dead-iverse. Plot details after the jump.
According to EW.com, The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor "details the back story of the villainous Governor, who in the comic book version of Kirkman's zombie saga rules the small town of Woodbury with an iron fist." It is the first novel in a planned trilogy. Look for it in late September.
