Never watched TWD for more then 2 minutes, and know nothing aboot it.
Are these games for me?
WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS!
You don't need to know anything at all about the comics or the show to enjoy the game since they don't tie together in any meaningful way. Glen from the comics pops up in the first episode and that's really the only connection.
Lily and Herschel are from the comics too.
The only thing you might miss out on is the fact that a couple of characters from the show/comic make cameos, but their appearance isn't anything particularly special.
Definitely go for it. The story is well separated from any events in the show or comics, and spoilers aren't a huge issue if you want to read the comics or watch the TV show later. The game also doesn't assume any sort of knowledge of outside Walking Dead fiction and your enjoyment won't be at all affected by not being familiar with it.
The comics are poorly written, right-wing masturbatory garbage and the show is padded-out, middling quality drama with juvenile gore (obvious caveat: 'IMO'). You don't need to know anything about them to get full enjoyment from the game, which is far better written than either and is a standalone story.
