Rise of the Governor

Rise of the Governor Summary

Winner of the 2011 Diamond Gem Award for Trade Book of the Year

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 in the history of the Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Deadwill discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes.

Awesome5 star

This book is great from beginning to end. So many great parts. All the characters are well developed. The arc of the governor is baffling. I never would of thought he came from such a scared guy, never killing anything, to where he ends up. This is a fantastic story.55
