I may be running out of superlatives to describe . So I'll just repeat what I've previously said, for the benefit of those who have not yet read this series: The best way--as always--is to start from the very first issue. The grows more absorbing as it goes, revealing more exciting and complicated reasons to want to follow a story where, in a zombie-infested apocalyptic hell, the few surviving humans somehow prove with increasingly horrific means that they are, truly, more monstrous than the undead. As an IGN reviewer avers, "If there is better, more consistently thoughtful character work going on anywhere in mainstream comics, I'd like to see it. Kirkman is a master at peeling away layers of a character's psyche, and Charlie Adlard has the expressive chops to convey those complex emotions." Indeed comics reviewers have been regularly giving each new issue ratings from "Very Good" to "Outstanding". In the case of IGN, an Editor's Choice Award is the norm rather than the exception. Following IGN's ratings system, I'd give the entire series an "Incredible" 9.8 out of 10. . Apparently from the general acclaim, a whole lot of people think so, too.
