    So, I just finished reading all of the comics up to the current issue, I did this as the show has grown on me, and I started reading the Buffy season 8 comics, which I thought were amazing.

    So now here's my opinion, The comic. Amazing. The show, really needs work. I hated the whole CDC storyline at the end of season 1. Always felt out of place, as this is based on a realistic view of what would really happen. And I was right, in the first volume, actually, in the whole comic. There's nothing about how anything of how the dead began to rise. I think that's why it felt so pushed, even without me having read the comics I knew that. The second season was good, but I like it did stick to the comic, but maybe for too long, whilst I think it payed off, what they did certainly got rid of alot of characters maybe in the future that explain about the hoards and so on. Which scares me, as Tyreese is still absent and I believe won't be appearing in the show. As if the show sticks to the comics, he'd be dying at the end of season 3 anyways, but who knows. Maybe not. But I'm glad Michonne is finally here! I love her!

    All I have to say is, the theme of the show isn't really relevant in the show yet. Shit's only just about to GET REAL! I have a feeling season 3 will follow only the prison though, I don't think Woodbury/The Governor will be in the show til the end of season 3 start of season 4. And also, damn am I pissed they didn't include the Wiltshire estate!

    Umm, I watch The Walking Dead, but care little for The Talking Dead, unless it's right after the latest episode.

    You should read the comics. Amazing. So worth it.

    The comics are 10x better but I think the show is pretty good too. You can tell the difference between Season 1 and 2 because of the directors switching. If the director from Season 1 stayed it would have been infinitely more better, but I still think it's a fantastic show as slow as the second season was sometimes/

    I'm a huge comic book fan but somehow never read these! I love the show though and I may have to read ahead to find out what's going to happen next season since I don't think I can wait.

    Damn it's such an amazing show.

    I didn't originally read the comics either. I started picking them up after I seen the show. It was a little hard for me to understand them since the comics had been out for far longer than the show was. Season 2 isn't my fav. Maybe season 3 will pick up for me.
