Every time a write a review for one of these comics, I seem to mention that another level has been breached. And that’s because it’s completely true. This one descended even further into depravity.

In the past we’ve had lots of violence, mutilation, torture and even rape. These have become almost casual things, trademarks of everyday life. In this crazy world this stuff happens every day. I hesitate to say that it’s normal, it’s not normal, but in a zombie apocalypse anything goes. There are no
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

Wow, what a volume! Things got really crazy in these episodes! I loved it. I love how we are finally learning more about the characters as we're actually getting a great insight into them now. I've tried to not get too attached to anyone because I'm pretty sure Robert Kirkman will kill whoever he wants to but I can't help it! (view spoiler)

I still have my concerns with this comic and it's representation of women but I hope Alice will be sane and that wil

WrensReads Review:


The last two issues have not been my cup of tea.. but this one slapped me across the face.

Remember The Governor?

And how he believes that he is the biggest bad in the world and things only go his way because he is boss man and he is god? Well, let's just say, he hasn't seen the goddess of war and destruction before. And she will make him rue the day

..and that isn't even the worst of it.

this one seemed shorter then the rest.

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
God damn, a lot of shit went down in this volume. A lot of graphic, gory shit. Rick is quickly losing his trust in humanity and I totally see why. I can feel Lori and Rick's relationship slowly getting worse and worse. I really loved most of this volume but there is one thing that kind of disappointed me and I can't really talk about that without giving spoilers. But damn, I am obsessed with these comics now. I'm hooked and I probably won't stop reading them until I'm caught up.

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

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
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

Las escenas entre Michonne y el Gobernador han sido mucho más violentas de lo que me esperaba. En este volumen se profundiza más en lo que somos capaces de hacer por sobrevivir aunque no se considere lo mejor desde el punto de vista moral. Tengo mucha curiosidad por saber cómo continúa.

This volume was really good and alittle bit crazy xD but i loved it
- Michonne took her revenge " revenge is a dish best served cold " she was sadist but he deserve it anyway and it teach us never make a girl with a sword mad or u probably will regret it xD :)

- Glenn that was my fav part even with this shit crazy stuff happening we can see romance that makes us believe that life should go

Michonne is crazy buried understand why.


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

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

This will be my most coherent review ever... Ready?

Whoa... What? but... What?


More seriously, it was one of my favorite (if not my favorite)!

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

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. We 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.

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

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

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

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

Governor gets his comeuppance, and the gang find a way out of Woodbury. That's not a spoiler when that's the only reasonable thing that *could* happen, is it? I mean, Kirkman *could* have made up some fantastic storyline, but getting the gang back together and preparing for an invasion, that's all been telegraphed (and I've come to expect the most likely common storyline out of Kirkman - he's doing a serviceable job on this book, but nothing terribly surprising or creative).
