Walking Distance, the comic book adaptation by Mark Kneece, is the graphic form of one of the classic episodes (and for some of us, even the young'ens, they all are) of the original Twilight Zone series. It's one of two Twilight Zone graphic novels I'll be reviewing this month, and it's a fairly good representation of the episode upon which it is based. From official release/information:
Product Description: One of most ground-breaking shows in the history of television, The Twilight Zone has become a permanent fixture in pop culture. This new graphic novel series re-imagines the show's most enduring episodes, in all their original uncut glory, originally written by Rod Serling himself, and now adapted for a new generation—a generation that has ridden Disney's Twilight Zone Tower of TerrorTM ride, studied old episodes in school, watched the annual marathons, and paid homage to the show through the many random take-offs that show up in movies and TV shows everywhere.
Destination: Homewood. Step off the beaten path as Martin Sloan takes the journey of a lifetime. Somewhere up the road he's looking for redemption— but he'll find something entirely different.
