if you are comparing the books to the show so far here is the major similarities and differences
the pilot episode is basically frame by frame of the first issue aside from morgan's wife coming back
Comics: No Daryl/Merle, T-Dog, Jacqui and no CDC
They were only on herschel's farm for a few days because rick deemed it unsafe after the walkers got out of the barn due to the mishandling of putting some walkers in...
Similarities: Shane and Rick have almost the identical arguement they have this last episode and Carl shoots Normal Shane out of nowhere...in the neck..so shane doesnt come back as a walker until later in the series..and he never made it to herschel's farm so he was a minor character
Amy dies the same way and Jim is bit in the ambush the same way
Sophia doesn't go missing like in the show...
Maggie and Glenn are an item in both...
if i am missing some that are non spoilers someone can help me out..but I just posted all stuff that we have seen and that has happened already
