The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor, Part One
ber-villain Phillip Blake has come a long way. He journeyed from humble beginnings into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse. And here, he has manoeuvred to become a small town's self-proclaimed leader. But Woodbury's residents (those who survive) will live to regret the day Blake, aka the Governor, darkened their doors. For the Governor runs a twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever-tightening barricades. Those that manage to breach those barricades find only misery within, and the terror of the zombie menace without.

Lilly Caul and a small ragtag band of survivors are determined to overcome their traumatic past.
Still recovering from its troublesome history, the town of Woodbury, Georgia, becomes an oasis of safety amidst the plague of the walking dead - a town reborn in the wake of its former tyrannical leader, Philip Blake, aka The Governor.
Lilly and the beleaguered townspeople save themselves from a vast stampede of hungry walkers, by joining forces with a mysterious religious sect fresh from the wilderness. Led by an enigmatic preacher named Jeremiah, this rogue church-group seems tailor-made for the people of Woodbury and Lilly's dream of a democratic, family-friendly future.
But Jeremiah and his followers harbour a dark secret, and in a stunning and horrifying finale, it is solely up to Lilly to cleanse the town once and for all of its poisonous fate.
