Are you feeling the Christmas spirit? The Walking Dead Enthusiasts sure are! If you caught the latest podcast episode entitled “Coda” then you heard several holiday gift ideas from podcast host Ryan. Below we have a collection of some killer gift ideas for the holidays, all of which are The Walking Dead themed!
The Walking Dead: Compendium One
The Walking Dead wouldn’t be a massive AMC hit television show without the original comic book. Honestly, if you haven’t read the comic yet, what are you waiting for?! See where the comic differs from the show – from the characters to the most important story lines. The comic book is pretty graphic and covers a range of adult topics, so we caution you if purchasing for a child. Then again, if they watch the television show, there shouldn’t be anything too shocking in there! With The Walking Dead: Compendium One, you’ll get giant book that covers issue 1-48. Happy reading!
The Walking Dead Seasons 1-4 DVD
Have a special someone that you want to convert into a The Walking Dead fanatic? Why not get them up to speed with seasons 1-4 all bundled together on DVD or Blu-ray? Watch Rick navigate the zombie apocalypse in Season 1, visit the farm in Season 2, conquer the prison in Season 3 and battle The Governor in Season 4! This bundle doesn’t include the first half of Season 5, but by the time they receive the gift, they very well may be all caught up for Season 5B which premieres early February 2015.
Telltale Games: The Walking Dead – Game of the Year
We’ve seen The Walking Dead start out as just a comic book then evolve into a television show. The success of the hit zombie drama has even turned the franchise into a video game by Telltale Games. Gamers will get a touching story of a girl named Clementine as she makes her way through the post-apocalyptic world. The game is broken down in episodes, all of which are contained in the Game of the Year edition. The Walking Dead Enthusiasts HIGHLY recommend this game for fans of the franchise. It tells a completely different story, but holds true to the overall dark nature of the show.
The Walking Dead Novel Collection – The Governor Series
Have you watched the show, up to-date on the comic book and even played the Telltale game? Bookworms should appreciate this collection then. A bundle of five novels based in The Walking Dead universe written by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga is up for purchase. The novels cover different character story lines not seen in the comic book or the television series. For instance, learn about the back story of The Governor – how did he become the super villain that he is?
The Walking Dead Board Games
Like Ryan said in the latest podcast episode, many of us head home to our families for the holidays. There are plenty of board games that can be played with friends and family that are The Walking Dead related. These board games span from Monopoly, Trivia, Risk to even Yahtzee. There are even original versions of the game not based on classics. You can find one game based on the television series and one based on the comic book! They’re both confusing as all hell, but worth an attempt in you’re a super fan.
The Walking Dead Figurine Collection
Decorate your shelves in your room, house, office, bathroom (hey, we don’t judge) with The Walking Dead figurine collection. There are a wide range of different figures you can purchase from Dorkside Toys – Funko Pop! Vinyl and McFarlane Toys are the most popular these days. Have Glenn and Beth watch the living room, Rick Grimes can cover the kitchen, toss some walkers around the halls and even let Sebastian’s favorite character Daryl protect you while you sleep.
The Walking Dead Threads
Want to show off your love for The Walking Dead? Why not roam the streets, malls or even cozy up to at home with some The Walking Dead style clothing. Might we suggest our most popular print, “It’s Mrs. Daryl Dixon to You, Bitch” t-shirt? Don’t let any ladies move in your man!
