Only a few more hours!! WOO GOVERNOR scary mofo. (love how they made him more of a politician in the show. It's like what they did with Lex Luthor. So much scarier when the baddies are more "human" and less "evil scientist", you know?)
Ah, trade paperback is the word you're looking for. Definitely pick up individual issues cause the next trade isn't coming out until June 2013. ;( So you'll be waiting a while to finish the next arc. Just you wait till you real the latest issue.. they /finally/ do something with Negan. And Carl.
Oh abraham is pretty cool, but he's a little crazy! My favorite is probably uhhh either Michonne or actually no wait, Andrea is pretty awesome! (in the comics) I'm only being Carl because I'm hoping he'll be more like his comic self when the show returns haha.
AND OMG ONLY 17 MORE HOURS OR SO GAH
I'm pretty current, I actually just got current-ish. I read the compendium thingies. (not the giant ones, but the books that are up to 8) So I'm like 4 thingy majiggers behind. I got to the point where they just reached hill top and were planning to go after Negan. AND UNFORTUNATELY I SPOILED THREE CHARACTERS DYING >[ (but I honestly can't remember)
I'm debating if I should just get the smaller issues and catch up or not!
