The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is based on the comic series of the same title by Frank Darabont. Tony Moore, Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard are its creators.
The show is a post-apocalyptic horror. In it, zombies have killed off the entire human race, with very few survivors. Those who managed to live are now hidden for the fear of being discovered and killed.
Rick Grimes is an officer who was in a coma when the apocalypse took place. He wakes up post-nightmare and finds the world totally different from how it was years ago.
But Grimes is no quitter. He will not hide simply to be spared. He gathers more survivors, those who will fight back. Grimes leads these survivors to war against the walkers.
