And to be honest anyone who thinks that The Walking Dead is too depressing, too horrifying, blah blah blah etc. etc...is simply fooling themselves into thinking that people are better than they are.

Only know this: if you want a frank, bleak and so-real-it’s-disturbing look at the world following the zombie apocalypse, and you haven’t yet tasted Robert Kirkman’s engrossing writing and the stark, black & white visuals.
