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
Heh... Every time I see or hear the phrase "or die trying" (such as the one in the description for this volume) I can't help but think of The Boondocks and how the show makes fun of 50 Cent. Observe: "Mumble mumble something. ...Or die tryin'."

Not that that really has anything to do with this volume. It's just early, I haven't had coffee yet, and reading the description of this book to refresh my memory as to what happened (from sooooooooooooooo long ago - aka: last night), and it made me think

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

Recommends it for: people who loved 28 Days Later
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

Leído para el 2015 Reading Challenge. Reto: #40. Novela gráfica.

Contiene spoilers de volúmenes anteriores.

Este volumen está cargado de tensión, de lucha, de rabia, de momentos que llega a darme escalofríos.

En el vol. 5 nos quedamos con Martínez diciéndole a Rick que va a sacarlo de Woodbury, y en eso se concentra el vol. 6, en la huida de Rick, Glenn, Michonne y 3 personas más de ese pueblo para llegar a la prisión con los demás.

En este volumen me hizo temer de Michonne, sé que el hijo de puta
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
Michonne is crazy buried understand why.


I know that I'm going to hate what'll happen next.

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
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
5 Stars

Sure, maybe it should be 4 or 4.5; but I don't think so. Michonne's payback on the governer in the comics, is wwaayyy better than the t.v. show. Hell, it probably wasn't enough.

I love the insight into the characters, without it being a long drawn-out speech. We learn about them in fits and starts; and just enough. He start to see their motivations with each scenario that plays out.

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.
4.5 Stars

Not my favourite volume so far but I still thoroughly enjoyed it!
As per usual, a fantastic amount of drama, gore, death and hate for Lori.
I'm so excited to see where the next volume takes us, I think I have a pretty good idea already...
Finally, a Walking Dead volume with all pistons firing! This was an excellent issue that I appreciated every scene and all the characters. This was a great culmination of what this series is all about that shined through, in my opinion, for the first time. Michonne finally got her vengeance against the governor albeit quite gruesomely. The plot was fast-paced and the story moved in a smooth manner. This was a spectacular volume that has renewed my interest in the series. Plus, they introduced a ...more

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
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
First Reviewed at Brunner's Bookshelf

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
The Walking Dead graphic novels continue to shock and amaze me. While this is a gritty ongoing zombie story, the depth of the human factor is with horrific realism time and again.

In This Sorrowful Life Rick finds a savior among the Governor's people, but as it is often the case, things that seem too good to be true often are just that. Rick strays farther and farther from his original role as lawman, but does so in the name of protecting his people. More than just a dark and grisly horror plot,
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

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.

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
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
The zombie apocalypse is freakin scary! And I am not talking about the zombies man! The people are insane! I would have to say after reading 36 issues that I LOVE the show more so than the comics. The comics are freaking me out!

Long story short - the Governor had his dick nailed to the floor. And there was much rejoicing.
