Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga recently released their second novel, titled The Road to Woodbury. The novel, which follows up The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor, is a direct sequel which further develops the Governor character and the people who aided him.
“We’re going to meet new characters as they come to Woodbury and see how Woodbury is founded, and how the Governor continues to grow as a character,” Kirkman said. “It all takes place before we met the Governor in the comic book series, and there’s a lot more story to tell with that guy. We’ll also look at others—Lilly is going to be another focus. It’s going to be fun to explore those characters again.”
The book was released on Oct. 16, and you can read the first three chapters now. Make sure you check back tomorrow for an exclusive new chapter from the book. Head on over to the next page to start reading the book from the beginning.
