New In Print: The Walking Dead - Rise of the Governor

Branching out from comic books and television, Robert Kirkman now takes his epic zombie franchise into the realm of literature with the release of The Walking Dead - Rise of the Governor through St. Martin's Press.  Kirkman co-wrote the book with seasoned author Jay Bonansinga.

"In the Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it’s forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople’s amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” byWizard magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial in the history of the Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes."

The Walking Dead - Rise of the Governor is available now in hardcoverKindle and Audio CD editions.
