This is another solid entry in the Walking Dead series. Anyone who has read the first thirteen volumes will expect that this one involves sympathetic characters being pushed to make impossible choices, with some potential gore and inescapable heartbreak. The series is always difficult to read, but also always so emotionally honest that it is completely worth the effort.

This collection explores the idea of safety in the new community that has been developing for the last couple of volumes. The main characters have joined a large community that has been successful at re-creating suburban life after the zombie apocalypse. In this collection, we see how that community responds to a crisis, from little things about how to aid someone who is physically outside the neighborhood to a huge scene that picks up the "let's smell like zombies" idea that only really appeared in the first few issues of the series and then quietly slipped out of the characters' minds. There are shocking tragedies and empowering triumphs, and I definitely plan to keep following this title while Kirkman continues his vision.
