Review: The Walking Dead, Vol. 16: A Larger World

Now Jesus steps into the story. There’s everything not to trust about that man, Paul Monroe, maybe because he goes by Jesus…IDK. Both incarnations of this guy…something just never sat right in my gut when it came to him. Still.

And as promised, he takes them to his “town” called The Hilltop. Which I remember very well. And it’s as unorganized and crazy insane as the show’s Hilltop. Rick and his ideas of grandeur…

Without a doubt, this is the last one I can read without spoiling a thing–I assume. Jesus came. Negan was mentioned quite a few times…and Lucille is pretty prominent on the next Volume’s cover. It’s coming and I don’t want to see it before it airs. Which, as of yesterday, was two weeks away.

So it’s with great sadness I have to leave this series now. I probably won’t pick up issue 17 until the television series is done. (I seriously can’t stand to have shows/movies spoiled, still loving seeing how the books were different/better/worse.) And I can’t be sure I won’t read any spoilers until the show ends it’s run…which has been rumored to be this year, or next.

I’ve enjoyed the graphic novels. It’s fun seeing different stories crop up. It’s been fun seeing how it was translated for television. It was great seeing some of the characters I loved alive again (Dale, Tyrese, Carol). And it’s been difficult seeing other characters again (The Governor, Andrea) as well as seeing the original incarnations of a few of them (Michonne, Maggie).

I’m going to miss reading them, but I’ll enjoy their returns very soon.

Review: The Walking Dead, Vol. 15: We Find Ourselves

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Dead of Winter…3.5 STARS!!!

pun fully intended. The walkers are slower now, food is low, morale in Alexandria even lower. Funerals out the wahzoo…

It’s understandable why everyone is going insane. Rick, in his Walking Dead fashion, seems to be turning into Alexandria’s leader, making things more tense around the makeshift town. It always feels like as soon as some problem is solved in Alexandria another fifty crop up.

This was another one of those in between issues. No major threats. No major deaths. Just typical insanity of life in the zompocalypse.

Review: The Walking Dead, Vol. 14: No Way Out

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

That episode…was so freaking intense, I didn’t breathe once.

Same for this book. Walkers/Roamers everywhere. No chance for escape, but you have to try. Every step intense. And then an eyeball thing, which makes my ‘eyeball thing’ even more freaked out…blech.

If you’ve seen the show, you know exactly what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t, then I hope I was vague enough to not spoil anything.

This volume was another cliffnote/spark note mirror into the world of TWD. The only difference was that this happened at the beginning of winter and on the show it was spring/summer I believe. definitely stressful and waiting to see who is going to die in the book and hoping that thing wouldn’t happen again. (It went down like the show for the most part. Bummer.)

At this point I know I’m stepping on the quitting line. Negan and Lucille are due to arrive very soon, show wise at this point…so I’m on borrowed time.

Review: The Walking Dead, Vol. 13: Too Far Gone

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is one of those moments where reading and watching almost match to perfection! The show mirrors the book so closely, it’s almost like watching the cliffnotes/spark notes play out. I love when movies (ECLIPSE) and television shows do that.

That being said, there are a few irkful issues I have. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the survival of one character (the one I couldn’t stand from the get go), the weaker version of a character I’ve enjoyed so much since she first showed…Gabriel…the walkers (roamers in the books now).

I do still love my favorites though–Rick, Glenn, and still laughing at the weird odd things Eugene and Abraham say. I do love the burgeoning romances, the high drama of breakups…

But where are the Wolves? The Talking Dead–who always says how different the books are from the show, though at this point I would argue that (outside of characters)–made it seem like the Wolves were a prominent story line…were they talking about that little group of insanes in town? Because if they’re prominent, then I must not have gotten to them yet.

All in all, I’m thoroughly enjoying this section of the graphic novels. Some new and additional information mixing in with what I already knew as truth. Defintely a worth while read.

Review: The Walking Dead, Vol. 12: Life Among Them

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A gender bender of an issue.

Rick’s group finally makes it to Alexandria! By way of Aaron. After the fall of Eugene.

Honestly, I liked the television version of their meeting more. It was stressful and weird, I mean, who keeps leaving all this water in the middle of the road. And are they being watched, trapped, hunted? It was freaky.

Here it was a little too straightforward for me in these times. I was THRILLED to see that Aaron has always been gay, from comic to show. That is wasn’t a big deal to anyone. Sadly it takes a Zombpocalypse to make a love between people not matter…

but I digress.

The gender bending game in with the leader of Alexandria in the comic as opposed to the show. Douglas instead of Deanna. Regina instead of Reginald. (I believe that was Deanna’s husband’s name). Sort of unsual to see Gabriel being Garbiel but talking to Douglas instead of Deanna.

It seems life as they knew it–before the event of walkers–has returned.
