News about the companion series has been quiet for a little bit, but it should start building up soon with the Walking Dead mid-season finale airing on Sunday night.

The comic goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country.
