Two-time Eisner Award–winning writer/illustrator Walden (My Parents Won’t Stop Talking) presents the first volume in a new trilogy spinning off of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic book and continuing a story began in the massively successful episodic video game series by Telltale Games. At 17, Clementine is a hardened loner determined to make her way through the world alone. After meeting Amos, a naive, sweet-natured boy raised in an Amish community, the pair journey to a ski resort in Vermont, where they join a group of teenagers determined to transform an abandoned ski resort into a thriving community. As the teens set themselves to the harrowing task of forging a hospitable homestead on a snowbound mountainside with limited resources, Walden explores the unique perspective of a generation who were raised to view trust and cooperation as liabilities. She also meditates on the difference between striving for survival and leading a life worth living.
VERDICT Walden’s knack for character development and unique perspective result in a tale perfect for diehard fans of The Walking Dead, as well as newcomers.
