One of my favorite things about The Walking Dead is the additional sources of supporting media. Not only do we have the original graphic novel series, but we have the television show which hits some of the same high points as the show but travels its own path. We have video games. We also have a trio of original novels which help flesh out the characters even more, with the Governor being a huge central character.
On October 8th, the next novel will be released which will continue the tale of the villainous Governor. Titled “The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor”, the book will be available in print, Kindle, and an audio version read by Fred Berman.
The Walking Dead series of original novels, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman’s iconic comic, reaches its crescendo in The Fall of the Governor. From co-authors Robert Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award winning comic book and executive producer of AMC’s blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker award finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping third novel in this richly woven, page-turning literary saga, which began with The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.
In Rise of the Governor, uber-villain Philip Blake journeyed from his humble beginnings directly into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse and became the self-proclaimed leader of a small town called Woodbury. In Book Two, The Road to Woodbury, an innocent traveler named Lilly Caul wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake’s twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury’s ever-tightening barricades.
And now, in the latest installment, the Governor’s complex story continues in a tour de force of action and horror. Iconic characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne, and Glenn, will finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light.
