Son of Sam Quixote
This is one of those comedy volumes where Robert Kirkman goes overboard with the misery to the point of hilarity. It’s also another volume where the characters realise, yet again, how far they’ve left their humanity behind them. Yup, just like the last volume. And the one before that. And the one… etc.

The group are on their way to Washington, D.C, where Eugene, the scientist, might be able to do something about the zombie plague. But they get sidetracked when one of Dale and Andrea’s twins murde...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

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

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

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

This was one of the more messed up ones!! This volume started of with a bang and it was just one horrible thing after another! I love these graphic novels! While they are completely disgusting, they are also addicting! Not for the faint of heart but as always, I definitely recommend this series!
Lloyd
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

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

Recommends it for: horror fans, existentialists, smart people, people with strong stomachs, zombies
"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

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

¡Estuvo increíble! Creo que es mi tomo favorito hasta ahora. Tantas cosas pasaron, cosas que no vi venir. Es increíble en lo que se ha convertido la gente que ha sobrevivido a los zombies. Quedé con la boca abierta en más de una ocasión. Mi momento favorito es, sin duda, aquel donde el grupo de caníbales descubre que han comido la pierda de una persona mordida. Aún sigo riéndome por eso.

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

Bullet Review:

So more characters die (for incredibly stupid reasons), we meet up with a reverend meaning "Look out anvilicious Faith vs. Science conversations!!", and cannibals. Also, these guys haven't been rationing until NOW?

I'm not exactly sure why I like this volume more than the other. I think it's Andrea. And I like the new character of Gabriel, even if he is as subtle as a brick in the face. Is Rick EVER going to realize that yes, he's a monster just as bad as the Governor and either acc...more
Ryan Moore
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.

Bringing back the crazy!

I wanted violence, strife and graphic. I sure got it with this one.

I was glad to see that the thing that bothered me most about the ending to Volume 10 (view spoiler) was smoothed over in this story. I think that helped balance out a bit of the violence that was forced upon these people.

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 continues the story of group of survivors. In this issue, they encounter other survivors as they struggle to survive the apocalypse.

In this issue, there were three different plotlines. The first plotline I did not care for. I believe it was there just for shock value and not for character development. The last two thirds of this book was terrific. It delves into morality and when do people cross the line. I loved how they told this aspect of the story as they didn't show the actual events b...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.

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
