Comments:This book is an oversized hardcover printed on thick mat paper (thin glossy paper for the original UK reprint). We can reasonably thank here the success of The walking Dead in France to understand why delcourt has chosen to published this first volume, the only one drawn by Charlie Adlard. Indeed, there is no mention anywhere in this edition as to this volume being the first of an ongoing series.
