Robert Kirkman's harrowing graphic adventure, the source material for AMC's much-lauded horror series, has captivated readers for years thanks to the eerie post-zombie-apocalypse world, the rich characters and his willingness to KILL those characters at the drop of a hat. But if you look closer, it seems that you can sum up every Dead adventure in eight steps.

To be fair to The Walking Dead, what makes it different from other zombie tales is all of that character work—we care about what happens because we care about the people it happens to—so to say that the plot can get a bit repetitive isn't damning in and of itself.

But still, when you break it down as the fellas at The Gutters have—with art that so perfectly mimics Charlie Adlard's crystal-clear lines—it's a bit of an eye-opener.
