Massive, modern-day disasters that shake countries to their core come in many different forms. But whether they're natural like hurricanes or man-made like mass shootings, the nations they befall are almost always able to move forward in large part because people can explain what happened. How, though, does a country or even a city come to grips with a tragedy that is unlike anything the world has ever seen, and fundamentally changes people's lives?


Just like its antagonists, Telltale's The Walking Dead isn't the freshest game out there, but that has little bearing on its quality. Which is excellent. And for the rest of today, you can pick up all five episodes of Telltale's undead adventure title for zero dollars from the Humble Store.


The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is a series defined by contradiction.

For more than a decade now, creator Robert Kirkman has been the primary creator of the Walking Dead, partnering with a select few artists to build out the bleak, incredibly successful comics series. Now, two more comics superstars have entered the zombie apocalypse with a beautiful side story that you can read for almost no money at all.


As The Walking Dead wraps up its sixth season, its shows no signs of stopping. The zombie apocalypse drama continues to be one of the most popular shows on television, and there are always new characters and settings to keep the story evolving. Even so, you have to wonder: How much longer can it go?
