OOOH THIS ONE WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD. The part when Andrea was hiding in the woods was so fantastic.

This one was fairly heartbreaking - not that all of the volumes thus far don't have sad moments, but you get numbed to them. It's been a while since I read vol. 10 so I wasn't quite prepared for the deaths that occurred, even though I knew about them in advance. (view spoiler)...more

I couldn't wait for the hardcover compilation (The Walking Dead #6) to arrive at the library, so I made do with the paperback that picks up where I left off.

The group is on the move, but when one of the twins kills his brother without remorse, the group is stuck wondering how to remedy the situation. One solution is to kill the remaining twin, but many in the group are opposed to child murder. There is one member of the group who takes matters into his own hands. The death of both of the twins...more
I read this back to back with volume 10 and frankly, half way through was having difficulties remembering what had just occurred. I think this suffers when read in trades, the singles format works so much better for an ongoing series like this without specific story arcs. Spoilers from here.

The stalker/cannibal gang was slightly different and creepy but I'm now really starting to be put off our 'heroes'. Killing them was inevitable but the fact they tortured them is a step too far. They've lost...more
Here we are...

Another volume of comics excellence from writer Robert Kirkman...

Also another volume where almost no zombies come into play... But that's okay! That's not a bad thing!

I think, in this series, it's story arcs such as these that show the true strength of the book. This book has examined more about human nature than any comic book, graphic novel, or prose book in my recent memory.

We've got people in this series living in a society where everything has gone to shit. They're looking ove...more
Good story, wish I could ever get to say "believable characters". I like where the story is going - the group is on the move, exposed, less certainty about where they get their food or shelter. They are facing new situations about who to trust, and new threats from weird people.

All that is good generic plot fodder, and Kirkman takes us down a path with the "hunters" that he's never hinted at before. It was intriguing when we didn't have a clear picture of what the hunters wanted and why (like t...more
So, I started this right before work and I barely made it in on time. I couldn't start my day without knowing what was going to happen- and wow, what a story! This may be my favorite volume so far- it was so dark and twisted, but what really got me was the humanity. This volume barely had any zombies in it, and it was so terrifying because the horrors came from humans. I am a huge fan of Cormac McCarthy and his novels, and I found this very similar to his style. I can't wait until work is over a...more

"The Walking Dead" was a herald of the zombie genre in the comic industry, and no book since then has done the genre justice. Superficially, the series seems clichéd and unoriginal. Much like any other story involving the undead, Kirkman's book involves humans confronted with the grisly horror of a world now overrun with the living dead. Unlike most of its predecessors, and its contemporaries, the series focuses on much more than the simple horror of outrunning an implacable enemy. The thing tha...more

Fear the Hunters wasn't my favourite volume of The Walking Dead, but the fact I knew about the major moments beforehand really served to lessen their impact. I must try harder to keep away from Wikipedia, but it's to Kirkman's credit that I'm so damn anxious about the survivors that I need to check up on what's ahead for them. I think this volume's biggest problem for me was plausibility and emotional resonance. And I know, I know it's set in the zombie apocalypse so griping about realism is sil...more
I reaaaalllly wish I had read this before I started my Harry Potter re-read, as the thought of interrupting Deathly Hallows, which despite being the saddest and most sober of the HP books, is still quite happy, for this, was not a pleasant or desirable thought. And reading it after seems even more unpleasant. Yet, they were due back at the library, who knows how long it would take me to get them again, and I didn't want to add any more money to my already considerably hefty ongoing library fines...more
After two less interesting storylines that don't seem to be doing anything more than moving on with the same trouble and getting over past events, this volume has finally put the series back on track.
The twists in this volume are not only unexpected and dark, they make you think about the human condition - once again.

The fact that we as readers know something about Carl that Rick doesn't know (I'm trying very hard not to give away any spoilers), makes the situation very interesting. How must the...more
AMC is adapting The Walking Dead into a television series, and as a big fan of these comics, I was initially very excited about the idea. But after reading this latest volume, I’m starting to dread it. Because it’s hard enough reading about the horror and misery that sadist Robert Kirkman has heaped on these characters, but if the series is half as good as the books, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to take watching some of this stuff play out in live-action.

Things aren’t getting any better...more
Jonathon Izzard
This volume has it moments but Kirkman's "No space to breathe" storytelling style is wearing pretty thin with me. He seems to kill off most characters indiscriminately but he keeps Rick in the loop but at no point do you really believe his developments, he's just turned him into a very boring killer. Character's like Glenn, Maggie, Andrea and Dale are still present but Kirkman gives them no moments with normality, he just develops them like as if they were in a Kitchen sink drama. He completely...more

This was a good one involving the twins, Andrea and a farewell to Dale. I think Rick and the group did the right thing to stop the cannibals even if it was violent and twisted.

Ewwwww!! I see all the wee clues from the season finale now!!

Este es LEJOS el mejor volumen que he leído hasta ahora. Me gusto cómo estructuraron, cómo dieron los giros, cómo dibujaron esos giros -maestros- pero sobre todo, me encantó que por fin los personajes tomaron el control de una situación y la ejecutaron como uno hubiera querido.
Por fin hay crecimiento, aprendizaje, ya no son lamentables. Al contrario, dan más ganas de leer en la medida en que, como ahora por fin, los personajes toman el control, en la medida de lo posible, de lo que les sucede.
This was probably one of the most disturbing of the volumes in the series to date. Things have started to look up a bit for our trusty group of heroes, but things take a bit of a twist when one of the children kills another one, thinking that it is just play. This leaves everyone confused as to what to do with the surviving child. Some thing it is like a dog and once he has tasted blood, he will be more likely to kill again. At the same time, no one really wants to be the person to kill a child....more
Ehhh, "here's a new and interesting plot point that could keep the story moving for a while. Instead, let's end it as quickly as we started it - and not only that, let's end it in exactly the same way as all the other plots: with a ton of killing and then some semi-remorseful stuff about how humanity is slowly being lost."

A lot of this series seems to just be a steady stream of filler. One promising plot after another, with nothing actually going as far as it could. Fair enough, this is original...more
this series is NOT the TV show, and vice-verse the characters and some plots are the same but the stories take different timelines and spaces. this is a grand read on its own, and Volume 11 will give you nightmares, but in a good way. *caution* NOT for children, and NOT for after meal reading.
Thomas Hettich
It's been a few weeks since I finished Vol. 10. In the meantime I have watched the slowly paced and poorly acted second half of the 4th season of the tv show - although the season finale is strong, most of the episodes were so poor, that I often considered giving up on the series.

Volume 11 is similar to the tv show only in that the few events that take place seem rather small. But contrary to the series, the pacing is excellent and the characters are more vivid and their dialogue more personal t...more
This one deals with the issue of cannabilism and murder and we love another of the original group members. Good stuff.
I figured once the remaining humans ate all the twinkies and vienna sausages there'd eventually be some cannibals.
This is written with such depth and introspection that it almost feels like the writer knows what it's like to live in a zombie apocalypse. My friends always gather around talking about how we'd survive no problem, but you never take into account the threat of constant dwindling of food and weaponry-- or even if we'd be mentally strong enough to withstand all the trials these guys do. Could we trust our friends? Can we protect our families? I'm so excited to keep reading this series.
I give Morg...more

REALLY?! I thought the show was crazy, but this is even CRAZIER.
While reading Fear the Hunters, I was constantly impressed with Robert Kirkman's ability to bounce back. The past few volumes, ever since Made to Suffer, had trouble getting anywhere near the shock and carnage that came before. Fear the Hunters finally gets us back to the gore and mayhem we've been craving.

As eluded to at the end of What We Become, the twins have a super creepy story line of their own. And like all good plot twists, it really makes you think - What would you do in this situation...more
Wooweee. The Walking Dead, Volume 11: Fear the Hunters is brutal. From beginning to end, it is filled with the evil horrors people are capable of. What makes this terrifying is that these people were perfectly normal not long ago, but their critical situation makes them do unfathomable acts to survive.

The question I had regarding the twins in The Walking Dead, Vol. 10: What We Become is woefully answered. This volume is so disturbing it will leave you with a heavy heart. When the innocence is ro...more
With this the series returned to its previous levels of mediocrity. The thing that the writer just doesn't seem to get are zombie films aren't just supposed to be a gross out fest. But rather a contemporary criticism of society today. It's supposed to be the things that are wrong with people magnified, not just people being OTT horrible cause society isn't there anymore. The problem with the cannibals is that it wasn't done the way people actually do resort to cannibalism. I know I'm complaining...more
