The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor - Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga The Rise of the Governor was a great start to this trilogy. It gave some (but not too much) background information for the graphic novels, and perfectly explained the way Philip Blake became who he is when we meet him in Volume Five. I still spent 95% of the book hating him, the first 5% I actually felt bad for him. The twist at the end threw me off completely, I thought I had figured out most of the plot line, but I most definitely had not.

As much as I enjoy the graphic novels of the main series, I LOVE the fact that these books are actual novels.
