I have a confession to make: as much as I love The Walking Dead, I haven't actually read the comics. Initially this was because I didn't want to have any insight into what was going to happen on the show, but with the past season (or so) TWD creator Robert Kirkman stated that the comics and the show were basically on two different paths. With that, I started on a journey to research the comics and start reading. The first place I went was Google Play, hoping that I could get 'em on my Nexus 7. They weren't there, and I was sad.

As of today, however, The Walking Dead, Saga, and several other Image Comics are officially available on Google Play Books. Words can't express how happy I am about this, and thus wanted to share said joy with everyone who reads AP. Enough babble from me – you can see the full selection of Image Comics offered on Play right here.

        Out of curiosity, what's the pricetag of the comics? Last I checked, there were over 100 comics, and even at a dollar per episode, reading everything would run me over 100 USD. :-|

          Looks like $2 a pop, but the volumes (which contain 6 issues) are $8-10. Can get pretty pricey pretty quickly.

      Same deal in Australia, too :(

      Looks like it's a US only thing, yet agian (Unless I'm proven wrong, of course!)

      They seem to be there in Belgium but that link does not work, just search for The Walking Dead, I can't find a link to a collection of the comics: https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Robert_Kirkman_The_Walking_Dead_Vol_16?id=BhYVAgAAQBAJ

        You're absolutely right! 194 pesos for a volume is a bit steep but I'm glad to hear that they're available.

    Is there a guided mode like comixology?

    Yay for Invincible!!

  • Pandawongs

    I just use Comixlogy instead, much more comics in a better format imo

    • malcolmest

      And same day release. I'm pretty sure Comixology has #117 up as of this morning yet the play store doesn't have it.

  • hocestquisumus

    Not in my country. Really, what is the problem?!

  • Hugo

    I'm in Belgium and I can find them all. The link in the tweet does not work for me but looking for The Walking Dead brings up all the comics, single issues for €1.78 to €2.22 for the new ones (117) Volumes around €9. The first one's even free!! go get it https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Robert_Kirkman_The_Walking_Dead_1?id=dRYVAgAAQBAJ
