"The Walking Dead Chronicles: The Official Companion Book" is the only authorized, behind-the-scenes guide to season one of the new American television series, "The Walking Dead", which tells the story of a sheriff's deputy leading a band of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead.
The show, in its first year as an hour-long television drama broadcast in the U.S. by AMC, immediately captivated and terrified audiences worldwide, successfully translating the characters and storylines from the "New York Times" bestselling comic book to a new audience. "The Walking Dead Chronicles" is lavishly illustrated with never-before-seen sketches, unit photography, storyboards, set designs, makeup and visual effects shots, and page-to-screen comparisons of the comic and TV show. Featuring new interviews with series creator Robert Kirkman and executive producer Frank Darabont, as well as cast and crew, the book also includes sidebars that serve as a detailed episode guide to season one, reproducing trivia, backstories, character sheets from the show's 'bible', and hinting at what comes next for the comic and the television show, revealing new directions for the second season and beyond.
