Winner of the 2011 Diamond Gem Award for Trade Book of the YearIn 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 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.

I was stunned by this book. I simply love the walking dead. Both the series and the comics but this was the first time I got hold of a book describing it more closely. This story got hold of me from start to finnish. And what an end! I can really recommend Rise of the Governor to all fans of The ...
OMG ... after watching the tv series first, the twist at the end of this books is great! I just have so many questions now. why? That is the biggest question. I love this book. I cannot wait to read the next book.
