I will say that for as much as Publishers complain about GS killing the games industry with used sales they sure don't mind giving them exclusive shit to sell.

Well the comic is 1000 pages and weighs 5.3 pounds...


Yeah, but the comic book isn't 20 inches long and 10 inches high either. The box looks like borderlands 2 ultimate loot size.

Can't recommend the Walking Dead comic enough. If I didn't already have the trades (I'm almost caught up), I'd be in for this set. But I think I'll wait for just the regular edition.

True...it could maybe just be funny marketing. Playing with the sizes to fit the ad better.

Just an FYI, that book (the compendium) in the collector's set has been out for a while. They are just releasing a new cover for this edition. If you're really interested in getting into the comics there are easier ways. The Walking Dead is being published in various formats.

1) the compendium (which is gigantically fat)
Spoiler


2) the hardcovers (which I prefer, for their modest size and quality)
Spoiler


3) the omnibus collector's hardcover (which is a gigantic fat hardcover)
Spoiler


4) and the average collected trade paper back
Spoiler


My books on my shelf are mostly the hard covers #2. I have alot of the regular trades (#4). I also have one of the omnibus hardcovers. And I have all the single issues after that. I've held the compendium that they're offering in this Telltalle collector's edition. I just think it's too big, too unwieldly and costly. I'd suggest to anyone interested in reading the story to buy the single trades (#4) they're only $9 each.

The story just passed issue #100 in the single issues and the story is still going strong.

I don't know much about the walking dead comic books or comic books in general but any chance this collectors edition could be worth a lot in the future (not the game but the comic books)

I want this so bad. Never read the comics but want too and I love the game and have been keeping up with it ever since the first twp episodes were free for PS+. Ugh not sure what to do. Going to buy the game day one no matter what but $70 is kind of steep......eh ugh damn it.

Thanks for the info.
1) doesn't this set include the #1 you listed?
2) makes sense what you're saying about the books being huge and easier to read but #100 issues X $9 = $900. This set @ $70 now and pick up compendium #2 for say $45 down the road is easier to swallow.

Both compendium one and two are $35.99 each on Amazon and cover issues #1 - #96. I doubt this one will be worth anything. If you're looking to get both the compendium and the game, there's no reason not to get the CE. Otherwise, I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

Someone show me this post in six months so I can slap myself if it does end up being worth something.

just a heads up. This game has no inverted Y axis options. I bought this POS and can't get used with this stupid scheme.
So if you can't play games like you used to play 20 years ago, do not buy it.
I just wasted 20 bucks on psn, since I can't get used to play this

The smaller trades contain 5-6 issues, enough to finish a story arc and are about $9 on amazon. Currently, the series is up to trad vol 16. which contains #91-96.

Comics off the shelf for the Walking Dead are sold at $2.99 each newstand price.

The book in the Tell Tale collector's edition is TWD: Compendium vol one which contains issues 1-48. It's currently selling for $35 on amazon.

I was at gamestop on Saturday and the guy was telling me how good a deal this is. The problem is I can get both cheaper, and I know that this game will be $15 or even $10 come Steam holiday sale. If they included S1 of the show, or both books, then I would be all over this.

My GF was interested in this but then again mainly just for the comics because she already owns the first episode of the game but has not played it yet. So I will probably buy one of the comic book compendiums and read through it, then give it to her as her present. Then buy the game during the $10 holiday sale.

No biggie. :)

Honestly, I see very little chance in this being big money down the road because in the end its still a reprint...

Short term, The Walking Dead is incredibly hot right now, and really that's sort of an understatement, so something with a rare cover (That truly is limited) could indeed go up in value... I just don't see it holding its value. (And considering you can get the normal cover for about 35 dollars right now you might be lucky to get that MSRP cover price.)

I hate it when GameStop has these exclusives that I want. I don't resent them that much like some of you guys, but I don't have credit there, unlike amazon and BBY...


dude, use your credit on the compendium at amazon. it's cheaper there and has been around for well over a year now.

I can't help myself, I need to say it:
WHUT. IN THE HELL. ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.
Okay, that's all I have to add, and I'll be here waiting patiently for your answer.


And (I guess I wasn't quite done) to anyone thinking about flipping these for their "collector's value" later on, consider the size and weight of this sucker; this is going to cost an absolute fortune to ship.

Sanges99, Davivascaino is pointing that there's no option for you to change the up is down, down is up control option. You know, like the flight simulators, where you pull down to go up and push up to go down... For me, I can't stand inverted controls, UP is UP, DOWN is DOWN...

I probably get the disc version when there's a deal... Like the other games, disc version will have separate trophies :)

I use to be the same way. For first person view games, I used normal x & y axis controls. For 3rd person view games I used both inverted x & y axis controls. I just ran into too many 3rd person view games that only offered the option to invert the Y axis, but not the x and it totally screwed me up when I tried to play the game... I ended up just forcing myself to play all games with the normal x & y axis controls.

$19.99 is the MSRP of the season pass on PS3, $24.99 on PC.
