The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is an American comic book created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore, published monthly in black and white (with color covers) by Image Comics. It features the travails of a group of people trying to survive in a world overrun by zombies.
A mini-series of the same name was published by Aircel Comics in the early 90's, but is not related.
The series debuted in 2003. Moore stopped doing the interior pages with issue #6 in 2004, although he continued to do the covers until issue #24 in 2005. Charlie Adlard took over interior art duty with issue #7 and will take over cover art duty with issue #25.
The main protagonist is Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer who awakens out of a coma to discover that the dead have risen from the grave and wreaked havoc on civilization. We follow him as he attempts to find his loved ones and find sanctuary in a new and very dangerous world.
The series borrows many of its concepts as well as much of its tone from George A. Romero's zombie movies (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead).
The world depicted is one where civilization has been destroyed by the re-animation of the dead. These "zombies," as the survivors refer to them, are driven only by the desire to consume live flesh. The corpses are slow and have only rudimentary intelligence, but their bite causes eventual death. In the story arc "Safety Behind Bars," it is revealed that a human does not have to be bitten in order to become a zombie.
The brain of a zombie must be destroyed for it to be killed - decapitation simply prevents the use of the body. The zombies do not starve to death without food, and do not seem to die in any other natural way. The cold of winter slows them down and occasionally freezes them solid.
