Walking Dead Comic
I'm finally reading The Walking Dead comic. I hadn't read it before seeing the tv show.
They couldn't have half of what's in the comic on the tv show, even if it cable. Not if they want to keep the popularity of the show. I don't hate the comic. I am enjoying it, but everyone is absolutely insane, even Rick and Laurie is still alive at the point where I am now.
I've reached the Governor. Up to Hershel's Farm everything was sane, so to speak. It's not really different than what you see in a typical zombie apocalypse movie. However, once they reach the prison all hell breaks loose, even before they find Woodbury. Carol is a pervert**. Michonne is a schizophrenic psychopath, at least psychopath to the Governor who deserves it. Maggie is slutty. I think Andrea and Dale are the only really sane ones, so far, despite their age difference in their coupling. Perhaps Glenn as well. Laurie is a whiner. Rick is tv show Governor while comic Governor is The Joker.
I knew the tv show took poetic license and has its differences with the comic, but I had no idea just how different. Anyone like me who watches the show but hadn't read the comic will be shocked if they do read it. It is bat-guano crazy. (observation, not criticism)
**Not because of the lesbian aspect specifically, just general characterization
