Product description

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 The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.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 dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living. Trapped in a town surrounded by madmen, Rick must find a way out or die trying. Meanwhile, back at the prison, the rest of the survivors come to grips with the fact Rick may be dead, and a major turning point in the series is reached. It is a reprint edition.

The Walking Dead is a great ride but it is a very bumpy one emotionally. This is quite a tough volume to get through. As an author you want to affect your reader but not so traumatically you alienate them. There is a nine page graphic torture scene that leaves any sane person unsettled. As a reader you are asking yourself was it really necessary. A good writer or artist could convey the same meanings using the "less is more" approach. But Kirkman is bravely teaching us to face up to this brutal new world and asking us to look inside ourselves and see where we would draw the line. These questions are echoed later on as more lives are lost. Our heroes aren't heroic any more but have they become savages quite yet?

The art is still on top form. There are some great shocks and cliff hangers. Just as you get comfortable another jolt is thrown in to remind you that this world is a dangerous, unpredictable place. But there is hope. No matter how dark things get, and they are pretty black now, there are tiny rays of hope and joy in these characters' lives. For goodness sake don't stop reading now. Thumbs Up!
