It’s been just over a year since Breaking Bad blew us all away with its dramatic series finale, and soon you’ll finally be able to immortalize the actions of the illicit and now infamous duo; Walt and Jesse, in Steelbook form. As part of this Zavvi Exclusive package you’ll also receive a stylized character illustration done by Ralph Steadman, whose work you might recognise from the classic cover of Hunter S. Thompson’s ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’. The illustration also features on the Steelbook front cover. Across this week at Zavvi we are lining up the Breaking Bad Steelbooks to go live for pre-order, with season one, two and three already available from our Breaking Bad Steelbooks page.
For those of you who didn’t get swept up in the catalytic whirlwind that was Breaking Bad allow me to enlighten you as to its addictive storyline. Season one introduces us to Walter White, a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer early on in the series. With only a few years to live and nothing to lose, Walter uses his training as a chemist to cook and sell crystal meth with Jesse, one of his former students. Subsequent seasons chart the consequences of Walt and Jesse’s increasingly unlawful activities. And as the series progresses it becomes more and more clear that, in the words of Skyler White, Walter’s wife, perhaps ‘someone has to protect his family from the man who protects his family.’
The show was rightly hailed by critics as one of the greatest television dramas of all time, and with the quality cover and insert illustrations by Ralph Steadman, this limited edition release of the series won’t be around for long. You can pre-order our limited edition Breaking Bad Steelbooks here, and keep checking back throughout the week for a new season going live each day. Also, don’t miss out on some of our great Breaking Bad Merchandise, with everything from figurines of your favourite characters to posters and pillows to decorate your living room.
