The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye

How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television?

The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.

An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living.

In a matter of months society has crumbled.

In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.
