The eighth installment of The Walking Dead should be titled: Santa ate the Easter Bunny, then raped the Tooth Fairy and hung himself. Robert Kirkman chose to go with Made to Suffer.

In case you didn’t get it…this story is all bad. I challenge you to have an ounce of happiness left in your soul after reading this chapter. I couldn’t smile for a week. Suffice it to say, set this one down and find a quiet place and get all your cryin’ done before trying to be around other people.

No I won’t even giv...more

Speechless... I don't really know what to say. Walking away after this end was hard. I wish I had the next volume right here to dive in to.

Made to suffer was a fitting title... So much happens, this was like a season finale right here. This volume has the knock down, drag out fight that was promised in the last volume. The last volume was more sensitive and slow focusing on rebuilding and preparing for impending doom. Well its here and it comes in a big way. The Governor of Woodbury is ruthless...more

On the top of this review box it says "what I learned from this book." What I learned from Vol. 8 of The Walking Dead is not to fall in love with characters. In a series where the cast is introduced and killed off on a fairly regular basis, this collection is absolutely brutal to the regulars. Seriously, when you get to the final panel, the series as you know has wholly and completely changed for good. This story is about battle and loss and a writer who has the guts to destroy his own creation...more

This book marks the end of the first act of The Walking Dead - and maybe even the end of the series for some readers! Each volume in this series has gotten progressively darker and more gruesome but Volume 8 is challenging you to stick around because it’s so outright disgusting. I’m thinking of one page in particular near the start where you get necrophilia, incest, and paedophilia all at once! I know, just one of those elements would be sickening to see - but all three? Wow.

And it’s completely...more

In the immortal words of Anakin Skywalker, DO NOT WANT!


Way to find a bad guy more terrifying than zombies, Robert Kirkman. And way to take away any false sense of security you ever created.

DID THAT JUST HAPPEN? JEEEEEEESUS. After watching the show, that was way more shocking and like DAMN.
The pace does not let up in this volume. I must say there is one bad ass femme fatale with a sword in this story. She takes it to the Governor and oh boy some real torture ensues a real gore feast. But she rocks!
They return eventually to the Prison with one person missing a hand and the zombies are still popping out of the woodwork. Loved to hear more from the brutal Governor.

This book is brutal, but brilliant. I had to read it cover to cover in one sitting. At first, I had the same quibbles I often do with new volumes of the book--there are too many almost-anonymous characters and a bit too much grisly violence--but Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard keep up their gritty storytelling. This storyline pays off the build-up from the last two volumes where our Rick and his band of prison-dwellers face off with another camp that watches zombie fights. I thought the Govern...more

Wow. Are you kidding me!?!

Reading this volume was like being tied down and repeatedly punched in the kidneys. Relentless and without mercy.


Great ending to this whole Governor business though, I must say.
Kelsey Trinkner
This volume starts with a flashback to allow the reader to see what Woodbury has been doing since Michonne's attack on The Governor. The Governor's disfigured body is found barely alive. After a week long coma, The Governor wakes and is informed of what happened. He is told one of his men, Martinez, left with Rick and the others. He had already known this, as it was part of his plan to locate the prison. He was waiting for the return of Martinez, when he was informed that Martinez was found as a...more

MAJOR SPOILERS in my review!

So my husband, who I count on to warn me when really, really bad things happen in this series, didn't think it was important to tell me that Lori and the baby get shot and killed near the end of this book. They do. Also, most of the rest of my favorite characters were gone by the end of this one.

This volume centers around our gang of protagonists defending their prison against the Governor and his followers. It's good stuff and yet...

I find myself really frustrated...more

The Walking Dead, Vol. 8: Made to Suffer by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard

The Daily Patrick Blog Post
Hey, guys!
For today, I’ll be talking about the eight volume of the greatest comic book series of all time The Walking Dead, which is written by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn in 2008.
As for the television series that was created by AMC, the show is in its midseason break that will come back in February. As for the comic book series, I am only halfway to its latest publication s...more
Tyler Hill
I've enjoyed Walking Dead overall, and there's no doubt that -with regards to the ongoing story- this volume is HUGE. Still, it's hard to recommend something that is effectively one big blood-bath. I'm going to side step particulars so as not to spoil things for readers... but, man... There's some brutal, brutal stuff here. And, if you've been reading along for the last 7 volumes, here's hoping you're not too emotionally invested in a lot of these characters.

Beyond the actual events in this stor...more
Larry McCloskey
Well, I didn't see THAT coming! The Governor story arc comes to a fiery conclusion in this volume and honestly, I'm not sure if the series just jumped the shark in spectacular fashion.

The volume itself is incredible. The action is non-stop, as is the tension. Kirkman giveth and Kirkman taketh away, pulling out all the stops to make absolutely certain that reader comes to grip with just how brutal this new zombie-infested world is. The fact that he can convey that dread, terror and loss while the...more

Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead: Made to Suffer (Image, 2008)

The showdown between Rick and his people in the prison and the Governor and his people in the city has been coming for a couple of issues now, and it's finally here. Thankfully, Kirkman stays with the high quality he's set for himself and makes this far less a cinematic winner-take-all blowout than, well, an actual honest-to-pete battle; to say any more would give the game away, and I certainly have no desire to do that. After all, if...more
Eight volumes in, and this story gets what could really be called a 'season finale'. The last volume was slower and more sensitive than the volumes before it, with characters preparing themselves for the fight to come. That fight arrives in this volume, and it hits hard and without mercy.

Kirkham has proved in the past that he has no issue with killing characters, but he really reinforces that in the starkest terms in this volume. The crescendo at the end of this installment pulls no punches, an...more
I recognize the author meant to wrap up several things at once here, but it was a bit too much of a bloodbath for my taste. I found it unsatisfying.

I'd give the series up to this point just three stars. Early on, I suspected that much of the depth I was assigning the characters came from the AMC series. As the graphic novel progressed, it became clear this was the case. I have to give the tv writers some credit -- even with the show's imperfections, they did some great stuff with the source mate...more
Holy shit! I made the mistake of reading this in the break room at work. Talk about intense, edge-of-your-seat, ultimately heartbreaking roller-coaster ride of a read! I spent the remainder of my work day in stunned silence. After all, how do you explain to co-workers that you're almost in tears from reading a Walking Dead graphic novel?

Writer Robert Kirkman and artist Charles Aldred deserve praise for this series. Stories that do that to you are rare and far between.

I've moved on to Volume 9 as...more

I love how different the books are from the show! Never know what's going to happen.
This book picks backtracks slightly, giving readers a chance to see what happened to the Governor and the people of Woodbury during the events that took place in the previous volume. It all starts with him being found after he is attacked by Michonne and left with a missing right hand, and a severely damaged eye. The people of Woodbury are able to get him healed up, and he uses the incident to highlight how violent and dangerous the survivors living at the prison are.

The citizens of Woodbury ban...more

Ok, so, how to start.

My friend told me when the show was starting up that I had to read the GN's. He had the first 7 volumes and gave them to me to read. I procrastinated. But I did start watching the show. The show was/is amazing. Love it. Finished the first season and I needed more so I decided to start reading the GN's. Boy am I glad I did. They are in the same world. Have the same characters. But boy oh boy is it different. And while I think that the show is top notch, I really do. The GN's...more

...and I thought the TV show was hard on main characters. Wow.

A quick note about the Governor:

I like the way he is portrayed in the TV series much more than he is in the books.

The comic Governor is just a sadist and psychopath. He kills and steals like a cartoon super-villain, and I absolutely expected him to order his minions in Woodbury to build him a freeze ray so he could steal the moon.

The TV Governor (played with spooky subtlety by David Morrisey) is a lot more nuanced. He's still ruthless...more
