Prison life suits you, Rick.


Ok, so this is the one where the group finds an empty prison, and decides to make it home. All they have to do is sweep it for zombies, secure the gates, and pick out a nice cozy cell to snuggle into.


Of course nothing goes according to plan, and the gang ends up losing a few members along the way. Oh, and also gaining a few members...


And then losing a few members.
Wait, wait...they're gaining a few more!
OMG! Shut the gate! This chick is batshit crazy!


Stopped for a quickie again (, and true to brand promise, found a similar experience to my prior Book One read.

One challenge in picking up a serial graphic in book form is that it's been a long, long delay since the The Walking Dead, Book One. I didn't recognize a couple of characters, and it was disconcerting to re-discover that the graphic versions don't always correlate with the actors, so I couldn't rely on clues from the series. At times, the drawin

Well, Book 2 sort of went downhill quickly.

It's dystopian drama. I get it. But damn, Kirkman, a little subtlety would have been nice. They're all a bunch of neurotic, homicidal, suicidal sex addicts now. It's like watching the movie Clue. Two minutes can't go by without someone dying or fucking. And listen, I understand that sex is a coping mechanism for trauma, and they are constantly traumatized. But it's borderline comical how much sex is happening.

The fast pacing I enjoyed in Book 1 also d
I had no idea that prison life is the way to survive a zombie apocalypse, but what I'm learning from this series is that the living are infinitely more dangerous than the dead and your nearest and dearest are a deadly distraction. Though I'm not convinced that the women are happy to let the men lead and also make all the decisions for the group. I can't wait to see what happens in the next volume. ...more

This book was even more disappointing than the first. The characters are obsessed with sex. Michonne shows up, and I was super excited to read about her character after seeing her on the show. She's so strong and has such depth. But I should have known better than to expect much from the graphic novel. She comes on the scene merely to introduce a new sex partner, offer the men blow jobs, and cause drama between the women. The characters are all so shallow. Carol is acting like a nymphomaniac - s ...more

ANOTHER great book in a great series. I was really surprised by how speedily everything moved in this book. I know that in the show things move at a much slower pace than the comics but I was still kind of taken aback by just how quick the plot progressed in this one. I loved the character development and some of the plot points in certain arcs. I'm really enjoying seeing the difference between the show and the comic. I can see why so many people love this comic series because it is just so amaz ...more

This to me is when The Walking Dead transformed from a solid story with zombies to an amazing story with zombies as the backdrop. And I mean that in the best way possible.

This is a very human story. The focus of this whole series is the people and their lives and how they survive. The other stuff with the zombies and such is cool situation but it is not the focus. For that I am glad, because zombies aren't very interesting to me. And Rick here decides it is time to clear our a prison and use it

I started reading The Walking Dead back before zombies was the cool thing to be into and way before the TV show. What I like most about the Walking dead is that it really isn't about zombies. Shocker! Yes, it is set in a post apocalyptic time where zombies roam the earth, but so much of this series is about human relationships. It is about what different people do in survival-type situations, how they react and how they treat other people. Who steps up to be the leader, who takes what role in a ...more

Shelves: graphic-novel
As in Book One, Kirkman does an excellent job of imagining a chaotic world stripped of all law and order, where everyday life is distilled to its most simplest elements: hunger, shelter, and survival.

The characters are well realized and the black and white artwork sets the right tone. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I will say that some characters that you might expect to survive, don't, which gives the feeling that no one is safe. Then again, that's life isn't it?

Mah TWO HUNDREDTH book on my 2016 Reading Challenge this year of 100; I DOUBLED it and I have six months left! Hoo Raw!! Join me and see if I can't double it again...!
Walking Dead graphic novel hardcover bind up of several issues. #13-24...."a continuing story of survival horror." When I doubled it, I was listening to "The Walking Dead" soundtrack. I was listening to it again for 218, Boo Yaw, hahaha! I love this series and I hope you do too, who's your fave; Happy Halloween!

Over the next eight weeks, I will be reviewing one Walking Dead book per week, to try and stave off the hunger for more episodes of the show. I will try and keep these a spoiler free as possible, but readers should be aware that a review may mention spoilers from previous books in the series.
Each one of these books comprises twelve issues of the comic.

Apologies for the delay in getting this one up; retail at Christmas is killing my review brain.

Review for Book One.

Two stars because I am flat out PISSED at Rick Grimes. And all that anger? Stems from part two aka book 4 aka The Heart's Desire.

Pissed off. I am pissed. I am a flaming rage ball. Can a damn zombie bite the annoying bastard that is Rick Grimes PLEASE.

Otherwise book 3 was good and I *love* the colored pages at the end. Who boy this book looks good in color.

In summary, fuck Rick Grimes. This would be 3.5 stars - probably 4 - if not for the absolute flaming asshat he is in book 4. The show cover
Wow. Well, this certainly was something. So much stuff happened in this, I'm kinda still in shock.

Definitely didn't foresee some of the stuff that happened, but everything with Julie and Chris I expected. Michone in the books is so different from the show though, that was a little upsetting.

The one thing I don't like quite as much about the books is that everyone is so focused on sex and "getting laid" and everything else. You're in a fucking apocalypse, people. We get it, it's the end of the w

The highlight reel of misery continues on in book 2. I'd have to say this was loaded with events and the plot moved fairly quick compaired to what I remember this series devolving into later on.

This series is massive but I'd still like to check it off my list and finish it through finally.

OHMYGOD THIS WAS SOOOO GOOOD! I enjoyed this waaay more than i did the first one, and i think that's because the comics have gone in a completely different direction than the tv show, which i have watched, so it was really really exciting reading this and not knowing what's going to happen. Even though i very much liked the first book, it was kind of similar to the tv show and therefore i wasn't that surprised by the plot twists and deaths and the storyline and all that but with this one.. i def ...more
Jess the Shelf-Declared Bibliophile
Being a huge fan of the show, I wanted to see how the original writing started and how the show writers followed and deviated from the comics. My dislikes were that the comics are much more crude, crass, and unnecessarily violent. I did like the change in relationships and how people worked together differently, and the comics have a different creepiness feel than you get watching it on TV. Overall, I prefer the show, and probably will not finish out the comic book series.

Update 10/2015: After having read this a second time I'm knocking a star off. I'm re-reading all the volumes I own in one marathon session and I'm not nearly enjoying the series as much as I initially did. What stands out the most is how godawful Robert Kirkman is at creating strong and intelligent female characters. I already mentioned Carol's clichéd and bipolar behavior in my initial review. But all the other female characters are depicted in a similar fashion. Carol is a hormonal nag, Maggie ...more
Just a Girl Fighting Censorship
I'm pretty sure there is more to life than sex but you wouldn't know it after reading this. I cannot stand that everyone is coupled up all the time. There is so much more going on beyond that. It is amazing that Kirkman can make me hate almost every single one of his female characters. They are weak, whiny, whores (i say whores because sex seems to be the only thing they think about) They just want to be protected?! They don't want to be part of the committee?! they just want the men to make all ...more

There was so much going on in this collection of issues . . . I was so engrossed in what I was reading, I ended up finishing it in one sitting. Which is rare for me.

I’ve surprisingly stopped comparing to the show, which really helps with getting into the story. Obviously I notice differences but I’m not steadily comparing.

There’s plenty of violence in this one. A lot of action and violence in the storyline. There’s not much else going on, though, and I think that’s what made it a page turner. I

Although I find many of the depictions of women in the show to be disturbing, particularly in the first two seasons, the level of sexism in the comics is astounding. I will leave out the worst moments in Book One and focus on Book Two. First of all, the women are often portrayed as sexual beings before they are portrayed as anything else. And their sexual choices do little to further our understanding of the women or their desires, they are mostly used to further the plot line of a man, or to sh ...more

Too little interaction with the zombies, too much yak yak from the living people.
Rick sucks, don't like him.
Too much drama, relationships, basic stuff.
It was still an entertaining read, I guess this is my guilty pleasure.

The second book of the Walking Dead comics was AMAZING. Better than the first one by a long shot and if my uncle does not finish the third book soon, I am going to go all zombie on his butt and bite his head off so I can read it.

The second book sees the introduction of fan favorite Michonne (which I still don't know how to pronounce). I can see why she's a fan favorite. The woman is a bad *ss. I mean, she walks around with zombie pets. How freakin' cool is that? The group doesn't trust her yet -

Rick And The Gang Go To Prison gives us a few new angles on how the world has and hasn't moved on since the good ol' zombie apocalypse. Are still classist? You betchya. Racist? AS FUCK. Misogynist? Of course. Suspicious of anyone who isn't just like us? Naturally. Suspicious of people who are too much like us? Obviously. Doomed to constantly alienate people we care about if we're in a group larger than two people? At all times.

I didn't like this one as much as the first hardcover. I think it does a good job of portraying what this type of zombie apocalypse would do to one's sanity though, and how different people would react to this new messed-up world. Lori and Rick started to really annoy me (she is constantly screaming and bitching about everything; he's always running around doing whatever he wants without thinking about the consequences at all), so I was really happy that several new characters were brought in to ...more
I read this series awhile ago, but now I'm reading the collected volumes and trying to catch up for the AMC show.

I liked this much better the second time through although aspects of this volume annoyed me. Like the random badass chick and how the guys are completely in charge of the women and the women apparently like it that way. Ugh.

While I still enjoyed reading The Walking Dead, it seemed like the writing suffered some in this volume. There are rough transitions between scenes, and I asked myself if I missed something? Were the pages glued together? Nope, Kirkman's writing is loose and he forces the reader to fill in gaps. Overall, still a fun series. ...more
