Read the blockbuster comic series that's now an AMC TV show! The first issue is free, and the rest are via in-app purchase. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. Presented in comiXology's cutting edge Guided View™ Technology.

In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.

Customer Reviews

  • Mispriced


    The packaged bundle contains 6 issues for 15$ while the individual issues are 2$ a piece. Whats up with the over price for the bundle? Cheaper to purchase individual issues. Not good for pricing.

  • Great app for TWD fans!

    by ChrisRocket2

    This app allows you to download both the oldest and newest comics from the walking dead! It is a great way to get the comics without the struggle of going to book shops in search for one comic book, and even better, the comics download almost instantly.

  • Love the comics! Want to contribute!

  • Cool

    by daniel19688282

    Very awesome great app

  • Pretty sweet

    by BountyHead

    This app is giving me nothing but grief. It just may be poor timing with their servers but I have not been able to creat an account. I purchased an issue and it took forever for my download to finish. I will try again tomorrow and will update my review if anything changes. Update (03.12.13) Apparently I decided to join during a free comics giveaway that pretty much crashed the servers. The app works well enough. Also $2 for a comic is a bargain. I've reached the end of the trades. Buying individual comics (if you can find them) is more expensive. I tried and prefer the panel progression feature of the app. Its like someone directed the comic. The downside; the image gets blown up too much at times and gets fuzzy. I think the ipad mini would be the perfect device for this feature.

  • Great app with a purchasing bug

    by Malvicus

    I love this app. The walking dead comic is my first digital comic and it has been a great read so far. However a few weeks ago I downloaded this app for my iPhone. I normally have read it on my computer. But somehow the app charged me twice for a comic I Already owned. To play it safe, I went to the website And purchased a collection and then went to the app to download on my phone. The issue was available to download on my phone through my purchased list. However, The app still asked me to buy the comic for $9.99. I clicked on the price and then canceled the prompt to pay for the comic again! Only after that was the app available to download without paying for it again.


    by Chdjshsjjjdjdh

    After purchasing two comics each for 1.99, I discovered that the app had taken an extra dollar after purchasing a comic. I either want a refund or my money's worth of comics. Seriously unhappy with hidden fees.

  • Get it together

    by Thatguythatstoleyourstuff

    Both season one and two apps are crashing! This game is really good, get it together.

  • Can't download latest issues

    by Ashilak

    Can't download latest issues.

  • Great but

    by Aralon fan

    I cant download the 2 newest comics

  • All downloads are wont work

    by Anakinpk200


  • Love the comic, hate the app

    by Legendary app!

    I absolutely love the walking dead comics, and I was really happy when I found an app to read them. But then it started to mess up....a lot. I've ended up downloading this app 5 times because I've gotten stuck!!! FIX THESE ISUES!!!

  • Fantastic

    by Bradtmadren

    Best comics or book I have ever read in my entire life. An exciting story full of twists and turns, as well as great action to keep the story alive. Though they do use the F word A LOT, all the dialogue between characters is great.

  • Dom

    by Domringo


  • Great!!!

    by stacey Lewis

    It's a great app but every once and a while you should have some comics for free or on sale

  • The game itself

    by A student named Mac

    It's fantastic! There are good, quality graphics and an interesting storyline. I suggest you don't have any other apps open while playing, it really interrupts the intensity of the game. The audio alone can be enough to creep you out.

  • Good App and Comic!

    by Tommy Dav

    Although you pay a lot for each issue, the app makes it easy to follow and read them. The comic is good and interesting, although I prefer the show. Great series!

  • Terrific

    by SickmyDuc

    I think with all the artwork, penciling, story line development etc etc that the price is entirely fair. If you're too broke then too bad, work for something. Better than the show IMHO.

  • I love this app!

    by benbryson

    I can read the walking dead whenever I want without having to leave home to buy the comic!!

  • Horrible

    by Not really happy fan girl

    Don't get me wrong i love the walking dead but this app not so much I deleted it right after I got to there home page trust me not its not good !!!!!!!!!!!

  • Cover and Letters Pages Gone?

    by Hondo McClean

    At some point the cover and letter pages were removed from these collections. That's a huge bummer and something of a ripoff, considering they were there when I originally paid for them. The app itself is terrific, and the pages look sharp in HD, but let's get the missing content back, please!

  • Cash grab

    by 6266226262651566yyywttahbyj

    Each issue is $2 and the series has well over 100 issues. Each issue takes like ten minutes to read. Not worth it honestly, I'll put my money towards the game.

  • Covers?

    by Starisland8

    I contacted you guys months ago and you still have done nothing. the collected editions no longer have cover pages fix please they were there when I paid for them.

  • Won't download

    by Bizz22

    Wanted to try the first issue, before buying more and am glad I did. It was downloading very slowly, then had an 'error' and stopped. Troubleshooted 36MB/s WiFi at home, can simultaneously stream HD to 2-3 devices (no need to try more), and no issues on that end. Must be the App or their content server? Gave up trying and am deleting.

  • Hmmm

    by Carterfilms301 from you tube

    it is good but i thought the game walking dead was based on this, it is way different

  • Good app, but in-app purchases overpriced

    by plaztik_endevor

    I got the app and purchased the first volume. Everything works well. I like the app opposed to the ibook format because you can go from page to frame mode easily; however, the app vs. ibook price is pretty much the same. That said, I think I would rather invest my money into the hard copy formats. They are pretty much the same price per volume (sometimes cheaper if you shop around). With the hard copy you retain some value once you are done reading. You can share it with a friend, re-sell it or keep it as a collector's item. Granted, convenience comes with an ipad, but it is hefty price to pay in my opinion.

  • Great App and Outstanding Comics!

    by KGates9

    I love the comics and they look really good in this app. My only gripe would be that I can't seem to find the Michonne special issue.

  • Perfect

    by Originlead

    Great pricing for each issue

  • People are stupid

    by soccerfan_9

    This app is AMAZING!!!!!!!! This is perfect for fans who don't live near a comic book store and want each issue the day it's released. 2-3 dollars an issue is a fair price. Even the volumes are fair prices. Did you guys REALLY think all this would be free?!?!?!? REALLY!?!?!? FYI for all the people complaining about not finding the free issue, here's a hint: Go to the homepage and scroll down until you see the issues section. The FIRST issue is free you bunch of cheapskates.

  • Add my email PLEAzsE!!!

  • Download Error

    by azcuf

    This app was great at first, but it's not letting me download Volume 13. If not for this, I would easily give it five stars.

  • Free Comic is EASY to find

    by RehabGrimace

    I saw a lot of reviews complaining the free 1st comic was too hard to find. I literally scrolled down twice & found it -- took roughly 6 seconds.

  • Not good

    by I

    All of them cost money
