I got back into comics in the summer of '09. After reading some modern super hero books I decided to buy the first three TPB of The Walking Dead. I remember opening the first TPB and saying "black and white? :( " and decided to read other TPB that had nice exciting colors. Once I read through all the other TPB and decided to try out those *spoon* B&W zombie books.
As I started to make my way through the first TPB I realized that this book was something I have never experienced, something so gripping. Simply put: amazing story telling. I made quick work of the first three TPB and had to wait a week to receive the other trades that would keep me up to date with the month floppies (issue 69). I went on a crazy WD bender and caught up in about a week, spending many late nights flipping pages and wondering what would happen next.
Since then, Walking Dead has consistently been on my pull list at my local comic shop.
Once I got into the world of CGC I realized that I need Walking Dead 1-10 in 9.6 condition or better.
As you can see my collection has blossomed into something I take a lot of pride in. It is a far cry from 1-10 in 9.6, showing that it has become more then a hobby - it's a true passion!
I have the pleasure to meet all the main creators of the series. I even had the pleasure to set up a private charity signing with Charlie Adlard at last year's BCC. I am a huge fan of the comic and cannot wait to see where Mr. Kirkman will take us.
I have also included my Walking Dead Original art to some of the back scan section of the registry.
With the time, info and great people I have meet along the way, I feel as if this set has actually made me into a better collector and member of the CGC society.
thanks for looking!
