Without a doubt, the comic from The Walking Dead is one of the most popular books in print today. Likewise, the show on AMC leads the network and even paves the way (and pays the way) for other shows like Fear the Walking Dead to follow.

Now, AMC has even released a cartoon to highlight the series. The network just released a fully animated version of Volume 1 of The Walking Dead comics, which consists of original artwork from Tony Moore and Phil LaMarr’s voice.

Fans of the comic will surely love this new adaptation.

The cartoon, which is essentially a moving version of the comic, shows Rick Grimes back when he first woke up during the apocalypse. On the series, Rick soon ran into Morgan Jones, but not before Morgan’s son Duane hit him with a shovel.

In the cartoon, featured here, we get to see the original Rick Grimes as he awakes and discovers the apocalypse on his own. There are dead within the halls of the hospital and after he finds an abandoned bike, he sees the chaos has spread.

For Rick, it appears there’s nothing left to this world.

Comic Book reports:

“For those fans who haven’t been able to pick up the early issues of the comic to see how The Walking Dead TV series compares to its source material, this is a great way to get a look at the earliest apocalyptic days of Rick Grimes. It starts with his getting shot, which sent him into a coma, and runs right up to the point where he gets whacked in the back of a head with a shovel just outside of Atlanta.”

The show hasn’t changed too much from the original source material. Some characters intertwine their pathways while others are completely new to the show, like Daryl Dixon.

The Walking Dead is currently filming Season 8, with an expected release in October.

Do you recognize this cartoon from the pilot episode of the AMC series?
