Talking Points

Recognizing that it is somewhat unusual that a librarian would recommend that you actually purchase a book, but sometimes exceptions simply must be made. So, for the Walking Dead fan and/or fans of graphic novels in general, this week the Humble (eBook) Bundle is for you. For the price of your choosing, you could get the "Walking Dead" graphic novels by Robert Kirkman volumes 1 through 5!

Of course, don't forget our own collection of The Walking Dead, or graphic novels too.
