Clementine: Book One

"Tillie Walden is the future. Her boldly authentic voice brings new heights to the world of The Walking Dead. I couldn't be more proud of what she's doing with this series." —Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible)

"With Clementine, beloved cartoonist Tillie Walden blows open the Walking Dead universe with a story full of blossoming relationships in the shadow of wintery death. It's ominous and magical and will have you craving more when the final page turns." —Chip Zdarsky (Daredevil, Stillwater)


Clementine is back on the road, looking to put her traumatic past behind her and forge a new path all her own. But when she comes across an Amish teenager named Amos with his head in the clouds, the unlikely pair journeys North to an abandoned ski resort in Vermont, where they meet up with a small group of teenagers attempting to build a new, walker-free settlement. As friendship, rivalry, and romance begin to blossom amongst the group, the harsh winter soon reveals that the biggest threat to their survival...might be each other.
