One of the best Zombie books being published right now I'd say. But that's obviously my own opinion. Kirkman has a writing style that seems to evoke some pretty strong emotions out of me. The story line moves pretty damn fast, without leaving you scratching your head for answers. He's honestly done a hell of a job with it.
I'm also equally excited that Marvel is choosing to elaborate on the Marvel Zombies series.
I was glad that the fetus has a normal heartbeat. It was cool that the main character, who we know will survive, lost his hand. It's sort of an homage to Army of Darkness' Ash.
I really enjoy TWD and it was the first TPB that I actually purchased to read over and over instead of just reading it at the bookstore like I usually do. The black and white art and the reallistic characters gives you a reason to really dwell and think about it. Sort of like 28 Days Later in that realistic sense.
Anyone read Zombies vs. Robots? It has some pretty stylish art, but the writing is simple and the plot is even worse.
I'm not gonna catch the sequel: "Amazons vs. Zombies vs. Robots".
Good to know, 'cause I was considering picking this up and kept putting it off. Robots have an unfair advantage anyway - they're immune to the zombie plague and have no brain meats for zombies to feed off of. One-sided, henh?!
Also, youwith I you disagree with you with you. You. Marvel Zombies rocked, both the original Ultimate FF story, and in it's various follow-up stories. Thus far, MZ vs. AoD has been relatively enjoyable, but I don't think anything has topped the 5 issue mini-series. Looking forwards to the MZ story coming up in the new FF book (Zombie Hulk Galactus? Can you say... Zombulktus?)
I just didn't care for the characterizations in the Marvel Zombie miniseries. I can forgive the whole different take on Zombie-ism thing they have going on, and the art is good...it's just that the characters felt WRONG when I read it. I guess it IS an alternate reality, but still, it constantly nagged at me and I couldn't get into it.
And that Robots vs. Zombies story doesn't actually sound half-bad. Shame it didn't seem to take off.
man, i don't think it's guaranteed that rick is going to survive at all
Unless he hands the status on to his kid or something.
Its not really a goofy zombie book... Its more serious, focusing on the emotions and interactions of the living characters as they struggle to survive in a dead world.
Thats a pity. While I enjoyed the art from the first trade alot more than its current artist (they had to switch off due to taking too long for each issue,) the black and white art fits the series very well. Perhaps its just me, (I do my own art with ink) but I can't imagine it being done in color.
edit: If you guys want a more humorous, gory, and colorful book check out Marvel MAX's Zombie or Marvel Zombies/Army of Darkness, but Walking Dead is the best Zombie book I have ever read.
There are multiple katana killings. Like a whole shitload.
Kirkman has in fact said the opposite. He has a general idea of where the story is going and continually emphasizes that NOBODY is safe in his story.
I bet his Rick's wife is going to get the axe pretty soon. Probably after she gives birth.
You think so? I don't know. There's a few things that they should really deal with before. Like the fact that Blondie pretty much wants to be under-study wife.
Ya, that girl is definitely creepy. Something tells me it's going to be a "If I can't have you...no one can'' scenario between the two of them.
but that's pure conjecture.
I actually think I saw a thing that VOL. 6 is out.
That would be awesome. I only have up to volume 5
Sorry about the long ass link.
Motorcycle gangs, Street gangs, American families that are like Gypsies, and over all geniuses and how they have got a along since the fall. And also militias.

Just what you're into I suppose.
Track down the covers for 39,40, and 41. It's not looking good for Lori.
(I'd link them but I'm having horrific internet issues tonight)
Where should I be looking for them imagecomics.com doesn't have them up?
Here they are. Sorry that 41 is so big. It's all I could find.
