The universe of the walking dead
The Walking Dead is a multi-media apocalyptic horror franchise centered around a comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. It mostly takes place in a world overrun by zombies, popularly known as "walkers".
Throughout the series, the characters struggle to survive, facing not only the constant threat of attack by walkers, but also the danger of other survivors using ruthless endurance tactics. The resulting story explores themes of humanity, survival, and the constant tension between an individual's moral compass and pragmatic survival needs.
The franchise has expanded to include numerous television series, novels, video games, and more, each offering a unique perspective on this post-apocalyptic world.
