Fans of the 2011 novel Rise of the Governor, the backstory of the standout character from The Walking Dead comic series, will be thrilled to know that this October will bring not only Season Three of the show but also a new novel to dig into.
The Road to Woodbury, the second novel in the series, will be released on October 16 to coincide with the premiere of “The Walking Dead” Season Three. The book will be the sequel to Rise of the Governor, which dropped in October of 2011 and won the Diamond Gem Award for Best Trade Book of the Year.
Series creator Robert Kirkman discussed the novel in a recent interview with Amazon. The Road to Woodbury will begin immediately where the previous novel left off. “It’s going to be a direct sequel to Rise of the Governor,” Kirkman said. “We’re going to meet new characters as they come to Woodbury and see how Woodbury is founded and how the Governor continues to grow as a character. It all takes place before we met the Governor in the comic book series, and there’s a lot more story to tell with that guy. We’ll also look at others — Lilly is going to be another focus. It’s going to be fun to explore those characters again.”
Kirkman will again collaborate with Jay Bonansinga, who also worked on Rise of the Governor.
It has been revealed that The Governor will appear in Season Three of The Walking Dead with British actor David Morrissey tackling the role.
