Discover The SFX Book Of The Walking Dead!

Your complete 180-page guide to the hit TV show plus the entire zombie phenomenon, from the makers of SFX magazine

In this time of economic uncertainty, the question on everyone’s minds seems to be: “How will I survive the zombie apocalypse?” It’s a valid question, and you probably won’t care about your mortgage arrears when zombies are climbing up the side of your house. The insurance probably won’t cover it either.

So, we’ve put together The SFX Book Of The Walking Dead in an attempt to not only give you a complete guide to the TV show, but also to help prepare you for that fateful day when zombies try to eat your children. It'll be on sale from this weekend and on shelves throughout the run of the TV show this year.
