At CBR: The Walking Dead: Idaho High School Bans Image Comics Series. “Robert Kirkman’s Image Comics series The Walking Dead has been banned at the Wallace Junior/Senior High School in Wallace, Idaho. The decision goes against the recommendation of a committee of students, educators and parents convened to help decide if the school should retain the comic series in its library. The committee voted 7 - 4 to keep the horror series, but the recommendation was ignored by the school’s superintendent, who implemented the ban.“
