The Walking Dead Compendium 2, Kirkman/Adlard/Rathburn
The Walking Dead, Compendium 2 - Robert Kirkman

This stuff is like a slab of chocolate...a really, really, BIG slab of chocolate. It's OK until you start it, then it gets really difficult to stop chomping through it until it's gone...even though you know it would be wiser to quit now and save some for later...

 

...also, Rick is a psycho.

This stuff is like sugar...just can't stop eating it. The whole Terminus arc is missing...did they invent that one solely for TV?

The Walking Dead: Book Fourteen (Issues #157-#168) by Robert Kirkman
The Walking Dead, Book Fourteen - Robert Kirkman,Charlie Adlard,Cliff Rathburn,Stefano Gaudiano

I read this entire volume in one day!

 

We lost a favorite character of mine and one of my most hated characters of all time continues to live...and grow. If he didn't, I might have grown bored, but he has and that continues to make things interesting.  I'm almost all caught up!

 

Thanks to my local library for the loan of the hardcover graphic novel. Libraries RULE!

I found it impossible to read this without constantly comparing it to the TV show which led me to it.

Plot-wise, the show matches the source only in the broadest strokes. TV has also done what TV and film usually needs to do and cut and conflated characters from the source material. What I didn't really expect is that the changes would lead to more compelling characters with greater depth. It's usually the other way round.

The mysterious phenomenon where-by Rick's moral and practical decision making is immediately shown to be right by events is all present and slightly annoying, though.

Nevertheless, it's an addictive experience and I find myself prepared to shell out the alarming price for subsequent volumes.
