The problem with reading these fairly far apart is that you can’t remember what the heck is happening.  I’m honestly pretty confused as to what is going on in this series now.  I know sometimes I can be a little slow, but some recaps would really be nice.  Also, there are so many freaking people I can’t keep them all straight in my mind.




Later on, after Rick and company escape the crazy people the volume gets better and less confusing. I confess my confusion is probably because I space the volumes out so much because there are a lot of graphic novel series I’m reading. Anyway, again, I’m really happy this comic is in black and white. If it were in color, I’d get sick from all the gory scenes.  Especially when Machone (sp?) goes after her rapist.  Ack! Glen proposes to Maggie. Read it to find out what happens. Of course Rick kills someone. Is there a volume where he doesn’t?    Also when is Rick’s wife (can’t remember her name damn it) going to have the baby! Can’t wait to read the next one which I’ve already purchased.  Love this series.   


Warnings:  This could be triggering for some rape victims. However a victim in the comic gets her revenge and it is sweet.
