i picked up book 1 over the weekend, pretty good but i dont think its as dark as the tv series. kinda interesting how it differs from the show too (i.e. shane dying much earlier). i was curious though, how do the books differ from the comics? is one book just a bunch of comics put together, or is there actually different material?
Each book is a bunch of issues put together and as far as I know there's no difference in material except maybe just missing on the individual cover art for the comic issue.
Don't worry as you delve deeper into the series you'll see how dark it can get, and I feel it's def. darker than the tv series. Keep in mind the writers for the comic book have less restrictions to deal with than the writers for a tv show.
Personally, I love both they do an excellent job switching things up to keep readers entertained.
