Im desperately trying to catch up with the television show, but Im still seven years behind on these. I have so much to read and so little time. You all know how it is! I just want to see Negan on the page and see more of Ricks evolution. But then theres also a whole world of books yet to discover. Such problems we readers have.

The title of this one, though, made me laugh far too much. Its so ridiculous. Theres nothing to fear about these hunters. They are all very weak people, which would

This series has always been about the humans and their fight for survival, it just so happens that its played out during a zombie apocalypse.

This volume really highlights this, the group have to face some difficult decisions as they journey to Washington.

The group are convinced they are being watched from the woods, when a seamlessly harmless pastor arrives - can the group trust him.

This volume is about the lengths of survival an individual decides to take, the pastor wanted to keep all the
"They're fucking with the wrong people."
God damn god damn god damn. This volume was crazy! The Hunters were cruel and this volume really showed how humanity is lost among these people. All the horrible things Rick has to do are getting to him and he wants to be a good role model for Carl but it's almost impossible in a world like this. The idea of somebody watching the group from afar is really terrifying and creepy.

I totally called it. Dale is dead. I knew he would be dead soon.
I don't know if I agree that this is the most shocking storyline yet, as the description says. I still think that the Governor takes that prize. But this was good all the same.

The in-group developments rocked me, especially with the death that occurs right off the bat, and the way that is handled. That was crazy unexpected! But the remaining stuff, the hunters named in the title, that was extremely predictable.

This wasn't my favorite, but honestly, these are so good that being 'not my

I'm kind of surprised that I liked this volume as much as I did because it was really predictable! Regardless it was still crazy good! It definitely wasn't the craziest but it was still awesome. Probably my second favourite volume so far. I love how badass Rick is. The writing and artwork was top notch in this volume. These comics are just so good, I can't get enough! I'm so beyond addicted.

WrensReads Review:

Holy crap, this volume was amazing. I can't even.

Finally we have the cannibals and we finally see how kids can be morphed into something else in this kind of setting. Like seriously I can't even think right now.

Like that thing with Bob in the comics? Yah, it's not Bob.

And that whole "look at the flowers" thing that happened? Yah it happens but a lot lot lot lot worse and I kind of loved it and I can't wait to see what Rick does about it.

First read: April 7th 2016
Re-read: August 22nd 2019

this comic is starting to pick up the series again, the survivors are on the move again trying to find somewhere to live.

We are introduced to a new character Father Gabriel who almost gets killed by a couple of walkers until the group rescue him and he then takes them to his church where he has been held up for quiet some time during the apocalypse. However the group soons runs into trouble when a cannibal group soon begins to taunt the

This is one of those comedy volumes where Robert Kirkman goes overboard with the misery to the point of hilarity. Its also another volume where the characters realise, yet again, how far theyve 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 Andreas twins murders

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, Im starting to dread it. Because its 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 dont know if Im going to be able to take watching some of this stuff play out in live-action.

Things arent getting any better for
Providing a much-needed ramp-up to what had been a slowly stagnating series, Volume 11 of Kirkman and Adlard's version of the zombie apocalypse goes for the juggler in a short, nasty story-line that is extremely impressive. Those who questioned any human could provide a credible threat to Rick and his group after the events at the prison might now have reason to pause before proclaiming such ill-considered judgements, because while none of the antagonists here stand anywhere near the Governor in ...more

I might be addicted to reading these. I seriously can't stop.

This one is so great. It contains two huge plot points from the T.V. show, but because things are so different I didn't even see one of them coming.

I wish this moment was written exactly like the comic, because... FUCK YEAH!!!

Such a good volume. So fast paced and some pretty shocking moments. The group show how far they are willing to go to protect their own people.

This is by far the most twisted and disgusting volume yet. It has nonstop twists and turns on every single page. This is honestly my #1 favorite volume so far. The suspense is insane. The cannibalism concept made me race to turn the page. My thoughts are all over the place right now and I'm in love with this series so much. A thousand times better than the TV show!

OOOH THIS ONE WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD. The part when Andrea was hiding in the woods was so fantastic.
Although the characters weren't always the same, the show stuck remarkably close to the book for this season.

I'm tracking the differences between the shows and books so if you don't want spoilers, we should part ways here.

Or here.


Father Gabriel arrives on scene in this book. Not necessarily a difference. Just noting it.

Two twins named Billy and Ben have been trucking along with the group. As opposed to the show where this happened with two sisters after they join the

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

Much better than the last, IMHO.

Plot twists with Dale, the Twins and shockingly, Carl. It keeps throwing me for a loop how different the comics are from the T.V. Show.

You know what? I love it. I love how circumstances, mishaps and misadventures keep stirring up havoc with this group. So much happens, and you don't get a huge build-up before sh*t hits the fan. You turn the page and get a shocker.

Keep 'em coming!

I preferred this book SOOOOO much more than the Terminus plot on the show. Instead of a crapton of buildup, the cannibals are introduced and dealt with all in one volume. And also a plus, it was a heck of a lot less gratuitous than the previous books.

Kinda sorta really glad Dale is dead .... he was getting on my nerves. The hunters were way less dramatic than I thought they would be. Still, quite a bit of action in this one.
The gradual slip into a kill or be killed mentality really emerges in the characters in this volume. I would have been disgusted at the cannibals Rick and the others face if I didnt already see the show. That part was disgusting. Poor Dale. ...more

So, I'm still not the biggest fan of this series. If the series doesn't have well written female characters, I'm out. I don't know what woman wronged Kirkman in his past but jfc, he really hates women.

This volume was tolerable mainly because there wasn't a ton of character work in it. It's mostly plot so I was okay.

This starts with the gang settled in the woods when Andrea goes looking for the twins and it's the plot from the show but with Andrea instead of Carol. It's weird seeing how many
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 ...more

"What weve done to survive sometimes I feel like were no better than the dead ones. It haunts me."

Once more our friends find themselves on the move. Once more the cast gets a new addition, this time of a former priest who knows the way to an empty church, which turns out to be a nice potential hiding place. But on their way there, they realise theyre being followed

This is another volume fleshing out the idea of the people slowly losing touch with what makes them human, so there isnt that much

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 ...more
