What Makes Jay Bonansinga Unique?
"His twisting narratives, with their in-your-face glimpses of violence, are set in an unstable, almost psychotic universe that makes the work of many of his contemporaries look rather tame.”It may have been this unique vision and the confidence of his agent that paved the way for his collaboration with Robert Kirkman.
Bonansinga's agent was the first to suggest the partnership. It was only a short time later that Bonansinga began the Walking Dead "Governor" series. Bonansinga and Robert Kirkman have co-written the novels, incorporating and expanding on the original storyline and characters.
