Walking Dead Volume 29
The Walking Dead Volume 29 - Robert Kirkman

I read this. I absolutely did. And I can't believe I never rated and reviewed it--and now I can't actually remember the date(s) I read it.*

 

So it's been a while, but I recall this being one of those transitional volumes that sets up the next big plotlines. On to volume 30!

 

*It came out in March 2018, and I will estimate that I read this sometime in April.

Halloween Bingo 2018 - Cryptozoologist
Oblivion Song - Robert Kirkman,Lorenzo De Felici

'Oblivion Song, Chapter 1' by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici

 

I don't know why I chose the shortest possible book for my Bingo pre-read, but there you go.

 

'Oblivion Song' is a new comic series by Robert Kirkman ('Walking Dead') that puts us in Philadelphia ten years after an unexplained phenomena wiped out a huge portion of the city, replacing it with horrific monsters and alien vegetation. 300,000 people vanished with the land. The monsters were defeated and the plants died, leaving a barren wasteland that the government built a wall around as a precaution.

 

It was soon discovered that the 300,000 were not dead, they were somewhere else. A scientist, driven by the loss of his brother, figured out the frequency to go to that other place and endeavored to bring back as many people as he could find. The government supported him and his team, but after many years, have shut down the program. Nathan Cole refuses to give up on his brother, making solo expeditions to Oblivion, avoiding the deadly creatures and rescuing those he finds.

 

The art is vivid, and the story hooked me right in. This is a promising start to a great series.

Next: ?

 

 

While 'Oblivion Song' hasn't gotten into the biology of the creatures of the zone, Nathan Cole expresses compassion for them, even objecting to their being killed out of hand. The alien landscape and its native inhabitants is an essential part of the series.

Here's Negan
The Walking Dead: Here's Negan! - Robert Kirkman

I liked this well enough, but it feels kind of unnecessary.  Negan the big bad got that way because reasons.  The reasons didn't strike me as particularly special for a zombie apocalypse.  He was kind of a jerk before the dead started to rise, and then he became a jerk who experienced loss and was able to get other people to follow him, to increase their chances of not dying.  And he obtained his signature barbed-wire bat.

Walking Dead Vol. 1 - Days Gone Bye
The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye - Tony Moore,Robert Kirkman

 

The Walking Dead will be the zombie movie that never ends.

- from the introduction by Robert Kirkman

 

I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead tv show. It's hard to put into words what this show means to me and how it has played with my emotions over the years. I can't believe I waited this long to read the graphic novel. 

 

I loved everything about this graphic novel and I can't wait to read Volume 2.

The Walking Dead Compendium 3, Kirkman/Adlard/Rathburn
The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 3 (Walking Dead Compendium Tp) - Charlie Adlard,Charlie Adlard,Robert Kirkman

Rick continues to oscillate wildly between unhinged psycho-killer and alleged Greatest Leader the World has Ever Seen. Negan turns out to just be The Governor dialled up to 11. Far more interesting is the latter parts where we focus more on Carl and we get new antagonists, the Whisperers. They are an intriguing psychological response to the Zombie Apocalypse, which seems to have been going on for a while now.
