The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled: no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the ...more

Chapter Fifteen


Good effort everyone – but save your bullets. I’ll take it from here.

Maybe the zombie herd is over, but hardly Rick’s group is safe again (as if anyone could be really safe in an apocalyptical world ove

This may be a case where the filmed adaptation of material is influencing my opinion of something I read. In this case, that’s not a good thing.

I’ve been a big fan of The Walking Dead for several years now, but it’s always had its flaws like clunky dialogue and characters spouting off long speeches about what they are feeling rather than letting the story or the art do some of the heaving lifting. I’ve been willing to overlook that because I was impressed with the way that Kirkman’s on-going zom

I think I’m getting into Kirkman’s rhythms. Talk. Talk. Zombie mayhem. A character you show an interest in dies. Talk. Talk. Sex. Argument. Fist fight. Talk. Talk. Somebody pulls a gun. Crazy talk. Crying. Talk. Talk. Zombie mayhem. And repeat.
WrensReads Review:

Well, the eye has finally decided to go on vacation from the comics books. They couldn't find someone to fill in the void, so they just did a cover up.

Honestly, this volume was kind of boring. It was a filler really. Some people are not happy how Rick and the gang have just taken over and basically go a little ballistic.

And that's about it, really. As I said: filler volume.

We got us a talker here again, boys and girls. This one advanced things quite a bit, and there were some interesting developments, but for the most part not too much happened. Some plans, some searching, some putting down a brewing rebellion, some recovery, and a whole lot of Rick whining.

That sounds pretty cold and shitty, but it's getting a lot redundant to have him going on and on about The Things He's Done. It's like he's making the rounds to tell everyone individually. They have three docto

Not a very exciting volume but a good enough volume all the same. I like when the volume focuses more on chaos but I suppose it can't always have chaos. I wish things lasted a little longer, things seem to pass very quickly - the zombie invasion and the people before that, the hunters etc. I don't want things to drag out either. I don't know how Carl survived getting shot through the head? And that ending was so predictable. I could see that coming from a mile away but I like it. I wan

Bullet Review:

Things I Learned from This Volume:

1) Blowing a huge chunk out of your head just makes you go into a coma for awhile. It's only a flesh wound, after all.

I know it's so early 2000's to quote Monty Python, but COME ON! There is no more appropriate use than for this comic.

2) If Rick says it's right, it's right. Anyone with different opinions than Rick is bad.

3) No other character other than Rick matters.

4) The best way to reveal how a character thinks and feels is to have them talk abo

Hello? Hello, story? Where did you go?!

You were there during the whole Governor thing, and even for a little bit after but these last couple volumes, you’ve been totally absent. And what’s worse is that this volume doesn’t even have a zombie herd attacking – the characters are stuck doing nothing!

The zombie herd has been eliminated and Rick decides to create defences for their colony, so a group begins digging a trench around the fence while others move cars in the way to provide another obstacl

Not bad but nothing amazing. A whole lot of talking about how they are gonna make a better community etc. It's quite a good one for a bit of character depth, just not a lot actually happens.

What a snoozefest. Absolutely inconsequential volume. Yes, you could say that Kirkman is attempting some character building here, but what the hell did he accomplish? We all already knew that Rick is a very tortured soul, and that Carl is an emotionally screwed up child (who should be fucking dead, by the way), and that all of the characters in this comic did go through a lot of shit that only made them stronger and yada yada yada. The story, meanwhile, is completely absent. They go out into the ...more

I don't know why, but the more this series progresses, the more disappointing I find it. There is no liveliness (no pun intended) in it anymore, all the characters I've loved are either dead, or walking dead, and the "community" is a pretty boring place for Kirkman to have gotten stuck for so long. A few holy shit! moments exist in the 15th volume with some rare massive zombie attacks, but I find myself caring less and less. I still read the series feverishly of course, and hope that the best is ...more

Probably the slowest and least eventful Volume yet, although I'm sure it's just to build suspense for the upcoming Negan storyline (that's what I get for watching the show before reading the books).

After ninety issues I think more than just the characters are weary and out of ideas. Ooohhh, look, another head lopped off. Boring.

Okay, the real meat here has never been the undead but how the living deal with each other in times of crisis. The beautiful brutality of the series has always relied on the living's capacity for violence and cruelty but, more importantly, the remaining shards of goodness, empathy, compassion, and love left after wholeness has been shattered.

This volume is a little slow and wordy compared to the previous ones, however it still gets 5 stars from me. I am a bit obsessed with everything TWD right now, so it's all win for me. The best part about reading the graphic novels and following the T.V. show is the differences between the two. After reading this volume I am thankful for T.V. Glenn and comic book Andrea.

I didn't like this one as much as the other volumes because it was very slow paced, but it was still good. The thing I did like though is that it had one of the iconic moments from the show in season 6 where someone in Alexandria tries to take over and kill Rick and Rick says the iconic lines: "You really think you're going to take this community from us? From Michonne? From Glenn? FROM ME? Do you have any fucking idea who you're talk

Rick and his community now need to clean up after the events of the previous volume. That includes trying to make what they have more secure as they head into winter. They will need to build the wall back up better than before and go on runs to find more food and supplies for the coming winter months. Of course, Rick will need to come to terms with Carl's health after he received such a terrible wound and he'll have to worry about a possible insurrection.

What is it with the long drawn-out explanations-cum-apologies, Kirkman? You carrying a lot of guilt for shit you done, but never had the nerve to apologise and explain yourself for it? I get that many people have regrets and want to make up for it, but every single person in these books gives a ten-minute soliloquy every time they say something nasty. Does your life really work like that? I'm sure I don't work like that, no matter how much regret spills up - I'm still going to stomp off mad some ...more

They can't all be exciting. This is kind of a place-holder collection, letting the characters assess their relationships in the aftermath of an intense battle. There are some great bonding moments between Rick and Carl, and some surprising developments in the romantic pairings, but mostly this volume is a lot of characters grumbling around the little gated community about Rick's leadership. Which is all pretty realistic - one of the strengths of The Walking Dead - and necessary to give the conte ...more

The necessary lull after the storm, with the next storm gathering on the horizon, Volume 15 of Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn's ongoing zombie apocalyptic series is not overly thrilling. But it does not need to be. Instead, it is tasked with developing these characters so when they next run into major trouble, there's a legitimate concern for their well-being; that the reader believes any one of them (well, almost) could die at any turn of the page. And that is accomplished he ...more

I guess there was quite a bit to miss between books 14 and 16, including a coma & a poorly thought-out rebellion that got sort of squished. I would find it hard to rebel if I was looking down the barrel of Andrea's gun, too. While I could've done without the exposed tongue in the last panel, on the whole, I am really starting to like the emphasis on learning how to live with the zombies rather than be afraid of them. It took me a while, but this plot turn has grown on me. As long as there ar ...more

So this was ok . . . which is fine, not every volume has to be a masterpiece. At this point in the series after huge events there is always a needed period of transition, a period to pick up the pieces, count the dead, and think of what happens next. There were some good character developments here, nothing major, but more of the same theme explorations and characters analyzing a certain point or view in new ways.

I'm sorry, but at this point, I'm just done with this series.

Don't get me wrong, Kirkman has some interesting ideas about community and survival and self-preservation, but it's just not keeping me as engaged as it once was.

As I've mentioned before, it's his writing quirks that have really done it for me. The fact that his characters continue to talk AT one another rather than WITH one another, really bugs the crap out of me. It's all a bunch of mini-monologues, and it just gets annoying after th
So... This happened. I was too eager to wait for the next Walking Dead episode (airs here in Finland tomorrow) and I bought and read this. Many things similar but I can see lots different too from the ongoing storyline in the series. Different people alive and different relationships formed etc.

Jumping to this after reading the first volume in the comics was a bad idea from me. I'd probably have enjoyed this more had I read all volumes in between. Damn me and my tricker happy finger while browsi
Lesincele Viaja gracias a los libros
Es un volumen como más de transición pero aún así refleja muy bien los dilemas morales de los supervivientes de sentirse seguros aún sabiendo que tras esos muros la vida es salvaje y peligrosa.
Lo mejor sin duda el final que aunque ya sabía que ocurría porque me habían spoileado, no sabía en que punto de la historia iba a ocurrir. Andrea me parece un personaje genial y es una pena que se desperdiciara tanto en lo que es la serie.
