The Walking Dead: Rise Of The Governor Novel, Cover and Details


picDetails and the cover for the novel based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead have become available.

The Walking Dead: Rise Of The Governor will be released on September 27th, 2011 from Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga.

Comic fans note: This is part of the continuity for TWD comic. This should be just as good as the comic (TV, too!) and a great way to start off - with the Governor's story!


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.
