The first issue of the comic was released in 2003, but I am reading The Rise of the Governor right now and they mention stuff like Facebook or Twitter. What do you ladies think?

    No power. No way to charge cell phones.
    Amusing side note:

    I read the CDC's zombie apocalypse survival guide for fun awhile back, and it includes things on the emergency preparedness list like cell phone and charger but no guns and ammo.

    I'm pretty sure the CDC's ZA guide is actually just their regular emergency guide and they just renamed it a Zombie Apocalypse to get more people to read it. :D

    You need a special cord to do that.

    Pretty sure no power means cell towers themselves won't work. I guess you could play games on them. :p

  • Well, you can only guess from the TV's, the cars, the furniture, the way the stores look etc. From what I've seen anywhere from 1995-2005.
    I believe around 2006 you couldn't find those type of TVs being sold anymore.
  • From what I heard, Kirkman said it takes place in the early 21st century, so that could be anytime from 2000 to present day.
  • The year was 1864
