Trivia: The Escapists Walking Dead has the format of The Escapists Mobile, and Updated PC version. This Level is the tutorial. Note that this is a survival version of the Escapists, and all items do not have a legal/illegal color/title. HINT: To get the comics, look for the rucksacks, they usually have them. One is in the vent where you head to the canteen, and the other is outside where you have to shoot all the walkers and it is on the last patrol of walkers before you complete the level.
