With the season 4 premiere of the Walking Dead just around the corner fans of the show are already speculating on who lives, dies and what the heck happened to the Governor? Sssshhhh! To those who have read the comics don’t ruin it for us please. I know the universes are close but we need to savor the flavor on our own. But one thing we both can agree on is that we can not get enough of the Walking Dead. It was announced that on October 8th Thomas Dunne Books is releasing the third book in Robert Kirkman’s New York Times bestselling series, The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor. Furthermore, along with hardcover and Kindle, there’s also an audio version available 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.
