Here Is An Excerpt From Entertainment Weekly…

“Co-penned by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and horror genre vet Jay Bonansinga, this first Walking Dead novel details the back story of the villainous Governor, who in the comic book version of Kirkman’s zombie saga rules the small town of Woodbury with an iron fist (and Kirkman fans will know that one fist is all he has left, thanks to the sword-wielding Michonne). The Rise of the Governor is the first of a three book series Kirkman will write for Thomas Dunne Books. All three novels will be set in the Walking Dead universe.”
