There is a redress going on in modern popular culture with which I am fascinated. Rape tales, tales of torturing women, tales of violence against women have been told for years with graphic detail. Many of these tales have been saying (either explicitly or implicitly) that these brands of violence are wrong or even evil, but many of them still offer up the vision of this violence to illustrate the wrongs and evils.

Now a redress has come, and we have Lisbeth Salander avenging herself on her torme...more

HUGE turning point in the story here, from volume 5 to volume 6 so much happens to change the groups dynamic at the prison.

Glenn, Rick, and Michonne were locked up at Woodbury when they find a few sympathizers who don't like "The Governor" and his crazy ways either. So they decide when everybody is distracted to get outta Dodge and escape. Without giving too much away they make it back to their prison safehouse only to find things vastly different from how they left AND that one of them isn't wh...more

If you're like me, one of your deeply-held beliefs is that the only problem with zombie movies is that they come to an end. With that in mind, Robert Kirkman has given us "The Walking Dead", a series which tells the ongoing story of an eclectic group of people trying to live in a world now ruled by the dead.

Kirkman's introduction says it best:
"How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television? When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wan...more
I’m starting to realize that Walking Dead is one of those series that boasts a large number of fans that are oblivious to or are willing to look past its flaws. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but it is what it is. The universal acclaim that these books get seems to be at odds with some of the problems it has, especially by this point in the series. This volume, simply put, isn’t put together very well, and isn’t much fun to read. Spoilers ahead.

The issues in this collection continue to chron...more

Rick, Glenn and Michonne remain the captives of the sadistic Governor, the leader of a small enclosed community. But help is on hand as one of the Governor’s guards helps them escape and head back home to the prison. Will they all make it back – or die trying?

I really, really enjoyed this one! I flew through it in one sitting, and it’s a cliché but the pages couldn’t turn fast enough. Everything from the lead-up to the breakout, the escape through the forest, the drive back to the prison, and f...more
My first three-star rating for a book of the Walking Dead series.
... It is not that it is a bad book. Not at all. It is really breath-takingly thrilling and again has some great cliffhangers even within the book.

However, all in all this volume was far too "Hostel" for my taste (and I never watched the movie for a very good reason! The trailer was already hard enough to bear).
Of course, the reader (the female one especially) is pleased to see that Michonne gets her revenge for the sufferings sh...more
This volume wraps up the very lackluster Governor story. Michonne gets an entire gratuitous issue to exact torturous revenge with all manner of sharp instruments, but everyone else is just spinning their wheels and I am left struggling to find a reason to be interested in these people anymore.

In Volume 6, Rick, Glenn, and Michonne are trapped in Woodbury with the unspeakably evil Governor. They must find a way out or they will surely face death. Back at the prison, the rest of the group has to deal with the fact that they may never be coming back.

Here in particular we learn just how twisted the Governor really is - so far I would say comics Governor seems much more twisted than his tv show counterpart. And, the way he loses his eye is much more graphic and disturbing here! I'm wonder...more
In this volume Rick, Glenn, and Michonne manage to escape from Woodbury with the help of some others wishing to be free from The Governor's insane rule. They manage to safely arrive back at The Prison, but they are completely unprepared for what they have found. As you can see this is different from the Walking Dead TV show in the regard that when the characters escape Woodbury they do not take people with them, they only take people in after a certain event that is briefly shown on the last pag...more

These volumes only hold six issues like most graphic novels but it almost feels like less. I fly through these very quickly and since they are just the next steps in a much bigger story the events in this book seemed short and like they went by too quickly. Usually this is a good thing because that means I was really interested in what I was reading, but I almost feel cheated because I wanted more. Good thing there are a lot of other volumes for me to read st...more
My first foray into the wonderful world of comics, or graphic novels, or whatever you want to call them. I chose this series as my first, because I’ve been watching The Walking Dead on AMC, and am a sucker for zombies and any kind of post-apocalyptic horror in general.

After finishing Book One (which encompasses Issues 1 – 12), I was left unimpressed, slightly annoyed, and pretty sure that I wasn’t going to read any further. There were some elements in Book One that seemed rather sexist – the wom...more

Volume 5 of Robert Kirkman's zombie saga ended on a cliffhanger, like "The Empire Strikes Back." Rick and his friends were trapped in the town of Woodbury in the clutches of The Governor, and Rick got his hand chopped off (it is like "Empire"!). In Volume 6, The Governor recruits Michonne for gladiatorial games staged between Woodbury's tough guys and the "biters." The Governor explains that the contests are somewhat fixed: The zombies are fair game, but none of the breathing combatants is suppo...more

During this volume of "The Walking Dead," Rick, Glenn, Michonne, and a few citizens from Woodbury, including The Governor's right-hand man, Martinez, finally escape. As they are leaving the city, Michonne says she will catch up with them later. She plans to torture The Governor. She is interrupted while getting her revenge and is forced to leave early, assuming he is dead. Eventually, Rick, Glenn, Michonne and the others arrive back at the prison only to find the gates open and walkers everywher...more

This is perhaps one of the most gruesome comics I have read, and its not the zombies that are brutalizing the humans. After the super dark turn the last volume took, this series is not for the faint of heart. I am still undecided which volume was more disturbing. The torturer becomes tortured. While it seems just, after the horrible things he did in the previous book, but the extent of the torture makes one back up and cringe, flipping the pages swiftly, only to get an idea of what is happening....more

Even with a bunch of walkers/roamers/lurkers/biters everywhere, it's not too late to live a normal life just like what it was beforehand this zombie apocalypse. The characters were really trying hard to just live their lives and at the same time, avoid getting infected by the plague. Cluster of people with different background stories gathering together, falling in love, gaining trust, sharing and learning stuffs and other things of what you could imagine of doing given that situation.

Rick has b...more

Just when you thought it couldn't get any more shocking or visceral, writer Robert Kirkman ups the ante on this series.

Again, as in the past few volumes, this series continues to be more than just your run-of-the-mill horror book. The zombies are still there, but they've almost become a backdrop as we see Kirkman study the human bonds between his characters and also how much more monstrous a human being can be than a member of the shambling undead.

Some have said that they felt this series droppe...more
After the events and darkness of volume 5 there's very few ways this could have gone. Darker it is then. There are some fairly unpleasant scenes in this volume making for difficult reading, justified or not.

I was expecting more but somehow by the time we get to the end not a huge amount seems to have happened and rather than getting closer to characters I'm feeling more distant from them. The plot seems stuck with recent events highlighting the problem with The Walking Dead trades. It really is...more

There's only so much I can say about this series without giving away major plot points, but I highly recommend this series for all zombie lovers. Awesome!
I've mostly moved beyond my frustration with the dark illustrations. It's still very hard to tell most of the characters apart, but really I can't be bothered to remember all their names. Essentially, I keep thinking, Fodder #1 talks to Zombie Chow #3, then gets interrupted by Romantic Complication #2.
Great plot twists in this volume, and I ca...more

Best one so far as far as suspense and gross-out.
Michonne is freakin' bad ass!
"This Sorrowful Life" was a return to form for "The Walking Dead," and it was everything that "The Best Defense" should have been. This story picks up right where the last left off; several of the main characters are in mortal danger, poor decisions from the previous installment are going to create a multitude of life and death scenarios, a villain is ready to be expanded upon, and Rick Grimes is on the verge of sinking even more deeply into his inner darkness. This was a great installment and o...more

Two thoughts as I continue this "journey" with Rick & Co.:
1) I feel like such a juvenile reading these. They're comic books! Granted, they're violent (way violent in some parts!), crude and vulgar which I suppose translates into grown-up entertainment. But still. They're comics, and reading them makes me feel like I'm about ten years old.
2) I am knocking these puppies down like there's no tomorrow. I don't get it myself. The writing is not great (it's dialogue, and with the exception of a...more
This volume really is a part 2 from the previous one. It deals with all of the consequences of Rick, Glenn, and Mishonne heading out to check out a helicopter that crashed nearby and finding the town of Woodbury, which is under the despotic leadership of the Governor. It all starts with the rescue of Rick and Michonne after their horrible experiences of torture. Most of their escape is due to a gym-teacher-turned-guard Martinez and the local doctor and his assistant.

Mishonne, who experienced a...more
Great stuff once again. The escape from the other site is exciting and the site that awaits them when they get back to the prison is great. Poor Rick is coping with his new disability and is feeling pretty useless right now. It'll be interesting to see what he does next.
Thomas Hettich
The four star review is for the first half of the book, which is essentially a quickly paced and brutal revenge story. As many readers will struggle with the graphic violence displayed, the character in question struggles to reconcile the violent with the person's more tempered nature.

After the great pacing of the first half (focusing on only a handful of characters), all characters and the story stumble along in the second half. We meet most characters again, but the story does nothing for any...more

Wow, that was one hell of a thrill ride! From the start to the end of this edition there was constant suspense. Some of the moments were, maybe a little too intense lets just say.... especially in the parts that involved Michonne and the Governor. I watched the T.V show before I read the comics so I was under the impression that Michonne simply stabbed the Governor in his eye- resulting in the eye patch he wears.... but unfortunately it was more than that. This series is not for the faint hearte...more
It's kind of sad to see how far this series has fallen. Where it used to rely heavily on atmospheric horror and character empathy, now there is just empty gore for its own sake. This book felt hollow.
David Dalton
Very brutal, even for the Walking Dead. I am trying to catch up on the series, I have Volumes 7-17, and plan to read one a week for a while.
