According to the Hollywood Reporter, the books behind AMC’s zombie apocalypse series “The Walking Dead” have topped New York Times best-seller lists.
Robert Kirkman's series – which began in 2003 – tops the lists in both the paperback and hardcover divisions of graphic books.
"No graphic novel series has ever dominated the list quite like Kirkman's ‘Walking Dead,’" writes THR.
The No. 1 title in hardcover graphic novels is “The Walking Dead, Book 1,” which contains the series' first 12 issues. The eighth and ninth spots on the hardcover list are held by separate titles.
The paperback list features “The Walking Dead Compendium” at the top, with other issues in the series ranking third and fourth. That’s three out of the top four books!
And it’s not just the graphic novel lists; Kirkman's prose novel “The Walking Dead: The Rise of the Governor,” is No. 18 on the Times' best-seller list for all books.
For those who prefer to watch the series, “Walking Dead's” second season resumes February 12 on AMC.
