Walking Dead Volume 30: Things Get Interesting
The Walking Dead, Vol. 30: New World Order - 'Robert Kirkman',Stefano Gaudiano,Cliff Rathburn,Charlie Adlard

 

In Volume 30, Eugene and a small contingent from his (and Rick's) community reach a contingent from the community of Stephanie--the person on the other end of the radio communications Eugene has been engaged in for a while.  Understandably, both groups are wary, and long-time readers can appreciate the risks inherent whenever the the characters encounter new groups.

 

I don't want to give away any surprises, but there is a doozy of a surprise awaiting one of the core characters, at the community Stephanie belongs to.  There is a big "Wow" moment.  It soon becomes clear that this large, complex community operates under a fundamental philosophy that is quite different from that of Rick and and his neighbors.  

 

Will those differences lead to more conflict, or is mutual benefit in the characters' not-too-distant future?  We will have to look to volume 31 and beyond to find out.

Walking Dead Volume 29
The Walking Dead Volume 29: : Lines We Cross - 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.

 

Oblivion Song

 

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.
