If you’ve still got a thirst for the undead and need the craving satisfied, you’ll be interested to learn that The Walking Dead will be taking the form of yet another medium in addition to already being a hit comic book and an Emmy-nominated television series. Beginning this Fall, creator Robert Kirkman and author Jay Bonansinga will be delivering a new series of novels based on the characters found within the world of The Walking Dead.
The first in the trilogy of original novels will be The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor, telling the story of one of the most villainous of all characters featured in the comics. The 320-page novel will tell the story of how The Governor came to be such a ruthless figure and help flesh out what is easily one of the most powerful story arcs in the series.
Official Synopsis –
In The Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it’s forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople’s amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” by Wizard Magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial arc in the history of The Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes.”
