    I had no clue that the books to this were so much different than the show You have some completely different characters and different endings for so many of the characters If you haven t read the books because of being afraid to spoil the show..don t worry It s different enough that you don t know anything about anything.Some of my favorite characters don t exist in the books and yet I still loved this book.There is a darker feel to the books More sex, dying, fighting between the people that should be helping each other Just like real life The governor in the books is the freaking devil I completely now understand the hatred between him and Michonne Then guess who is bad ass in the books but was a whimpering idiot on the show view spoiler hide spoiler

    The world we knew is gonenow we live in the world of The Waking Dead This is the first volume of Compendium Edition of The Walking Dead, collecting the comic book issue from 1 to 48 including the Christmas Special story This is equivalent to the first 8 regular Trade Paperbacks of the comic book series. My general rating is an average result of the sum of the ratings of each chapter in the collected edition.Creative Team Writer Robert KirkmanIllustrators Tony Moore Chapter One Charlie Adlard Chapters Two to Eight Additional gray tones to inking Tony Moore Chapter One Cliff Rathburn Chapters Two to Eight Chapter One DAYS GONE BYE Rating 5 stars Rick Officer Rick Grimes at your service. This chapter is the epic beginning of the mega popular franchise of The Walking Dead that first was comic books, then expanded to a TV series and now there are even prose novels.This first chapter has the great artwork by Tony Moore that certainly made it iconic The work of Charlie Adlard in the rest of chapters is really good too, specially on the details of things and backgrounds, but definitely if I d be able to choose, my pick would be on Tony Moore, it was sad that he won t keep doing the illustrations on the rest of the comic book series As additional info, Tony Moore remained in the creative team for a while doing the covers of the first twenty four issues and the covers of the first four regular TPBs.A good thing about The Walking Dead, if you want to enjoy it in comic books along with TV series is that both storylines are different, sure there will be connecting points here and there, and you will meet the same names of characters in some cases but they aren t the same persons, and trust me, while this is my first compendium in the comic book s storyline, I have been watching the TV series since its own beginning, and both stories are different, both truly great, but different, so don t afraid of spoilers in any of both formats, since the events are developed quite different You may think of the other storyline of any format, comic books or TV series, as the road not taken But truly loyal to the spirit of the franchise.Officer Rick Grimes, from the Sheriff Deparment in Cynthiana, Kentucky, suffers a shot injury on duty and he falls into a coma When he wakes up in a hospital bed, after several weeks, he finds himself alone in the building, or at least he thinks that he is alone Soon enough he meets several things , walking things that only a word, not matter how nonsensical it sounds, is able to describe those walking things ZOMBIES.And if things aren t bad enough, Rick doesn t know the whereabouts of his wife and son Rick s first stop on his own home leads him to meet Morgan and his son, Duane Morgan explains him how the world gone to hell while Rick was in coma.The US Government was asking population to go to big cities to be defended there by the army, and since Lori, Rick s wife, has family in Atlanta, Rick decides to go there to search for his wife and son, Carl.On Atlanta, he finds Glenn, an Asian American young man, who explains him how the world works now.Rick Grimes world would never been the same any Chapter Two MILES BEHIND US Rating 4 stars Okay What the hell are we going to do now The body count started on the first chapter making them to realize that ANYBODY may be the next one to fall.Ammo is scarce, so that s why that being able to shoot and doing it with precision becomes a vital skill where, Andrea, a young blonde woman, is showing to be the best shooter of the group.Rick s group is on the road, trying to find some safe place to survive in this nightmare that it s their reality now.However, that seems to be an impossible goal since there are zombies everywhere Any potential paradise reveals a hidden biting snake Chapter Three SAFETY BEHIND BARS Rating 5 stars I ain t gonna bury you again you son of a bitch. In our society, you never would want to go prison, but in an apocalyptical dystopia plagued with zombies, a prison would look like the logical choice.Rick s group finds a federal penitentiary, that it seems to be the place to expiate their sins, but also they can be a site with its own kind of sinners.A shocking revelation will expose a new facet about their life and death condition.And also, they will find soon enough that zombies may be deadly, but men are evil Zombies aren t guilty of their actions, men are quite aware of theirs.And men are able to do horrible things than any zombie.Until now, you haven t seen anything yet, the really gruesome things starts here Chapter Four THE HEART S DESIRE Rating 5 stars Cry me a river. Enter Michonne, mysterious Afro American woman with a samurai sword Nuff said Rick s group has troubles in all fronts Menaces outside and inside of the prison.Rick finally realizes that any sentimental sense of righteousness is long gone in this insane world and now he is taking the hard choices if he really wants the survival of his group Some decisions will pay out, some don t, but nevertheless, Rick needs to call them Chapter Five THE BEST DEFENSE Rating 5 stars Wait you re feeding them What the hell are you feeding them Enter The Governor, no time to introduce him Run, everyone RUN Rick s group is finally establishing a secure place in the prison when a falling helicopter in the sky making to go out to investigate.Rick, Michonne and Glenn while checking out the helicopter, they reach a fortified town.Welcome to Woodbury.The Governor rules the town of Woodbury, and the lives of Rick s group would never been the same any They would wish to face a legion of zombies instead rather than The Governor Chapter Six THIS SORROWFUL LIFE Rating 5 stars Don t you know what people is capable of Rick, Michonne and Glenn are trapped in Woodbury.And each one of them never would be the same any.Zombies are merciful, they kill you quick and you aren t aware of a single thing any You cease of thinking, hearing and feeling.Men aren t merciful at all.However they are similar in an aspectthey have to be dealt in the same way Chapter Seven THE CALM BEFORE Rating 4 stars I just don t need to hear you say it I can t hear you say it. Rick s group is reunited again and they remain in the prison.However, Woodbury s people is out there.This is only the calm before the storming arrival of the dwellers of Woodbury to the prison.It s not a matter of if but a disturbing certainity of when.Rick s group is doing their best to keep on with their existence along with doing their best to be prepared for the unavoidable confrontation Chapter Eight MADE TO SUFFER Rating 5 stars I don t think we can do this. This is it The showdown that you all have been waiting for, during the entire compendium Woodbury s people versus Rick s group Now we re cooking Villains will rise, heroes will fall Characters that you have been thinking that they are irrelevant will prove their value in key moments of survival But don t you get mistakenThis is a warAnd in war, disgusting unspeakable sad things happen.This is THE WALKING DEAD Special Bonus HOLIDAY SPECIAL Rating 3 stars A brief side story showing again Morgan and his son Duane, the first people that Rick Grimes met after his recovery from the coma.Christmas is coming, or at least their calculations say so.Morgan does his best to bring a momento of peace and joy to his son, Duane, at least for one day in their uncertain existence of survival.

    If you watch The Walking Dead aka stalking Daryl Dixon, throw any notions you may have about the show paralleling the comics right out the fucking window This version does not have this Or that I may have even missed this a tiny bit It does have this And that Although our friend the Governor on the show is rated G compared to the comic version.Now take all the sick, twisted, and fucked up things that happen on the show and multiply the fucked upness by a gazillion Throw in some added gore and psychologically damaging events beyond human comprehension, and you get this book Fucking WIN I still miss seeing this a bit a lot 5 Ninja Bunneh Zombies Munching On Brains

    This is my second go around with this sprawling, epic compendium in preparation for tackling the follow up I m so glad I did a re read because there was a lot I had plain forgotten and much I had gotten tangled up with the television series Only reading the source material again, did I realize just how much the producers of the show actually changed from Kirkman s comic The fundamentals of the story are essentially the same, but the devilish details have undergone quite a makeover I have to say, as much as I m a fan of the comic, most of the changes I approve of and in some cases, even prefer Carol s character is much likeable and awesome on the small screen certainly not as needy and neurotic as comic book Carol The invention of Daryl my favorite on screen character and his uber violent, redneck brother Merle played oh so convincingly by Michael Rooker , have been magnificent contributions to the ensemble cast view spoiler I definitely prefer Lori s on screen death grisly and upsetting as it was , to the comic s quick gut shot death even though that was quite shocking in its own way with little Judith in her arms I m glad they didn t put Dale and Andrea together in the show, though I do wish they hadn t made Andrea so unlikable Her character in the comic is kick ass and great On the show Grrrrr I want to smack her most of the time It remains to be seen what they will do with Michonne s character but I m glad the show did not go as dark and disturbing as the comic with what happened between her and the Governor That was some sick shit I did not need to ever read or see Loved how the show handled it overall Television Michonne seems together and not as damaged She s not talking to voices in her head either at least not yet hide spoiler

    I really, really love zombie movies, and anything really that involves zombies Yes, even Pride and Prejudice and Zombies If you can t like that idea at least a little bit, then I can t like you But pretty quickly after my zombie obsession started, I realized that what interests me about these stories isn t the zombie killing aspect at all Instead, what really fascinates me about zombie apocalypse movies is how they portray the breakdown of society, and how people deal with this Blowing zombie heads off with shotguns and slicing them up with machetes is fun to watch because zombies, like Nazis, can be slaughtered in the thousands and you don t feel even a little bit sorry for them even when there s a really heartwrenching moment when someone has to shoot their zombiefied mom, it really doesn t make me feel that bad because she s not your mom any, she s a zombie who s going to eat you and there is a big difference but what always interests me in these stories is what happens when the normal rules of society no longer apply If the world collapsed tomorrow and all that mattered was survival not morality, not family, not religion what would you do When the zombie apocalypse happens, all bets are off and society crumbles Once this happens, once we pretty much do whatever we want because everything has been destroyed, how do we react Who do we become when we lose everything If these questions interest you than simple zombie killing, The Walking Dead will make you very happy Yes, there are zombie killings aplenty drawn in super graphic detail, to the point where you probably shouldn t be eating anything while you read this , but the zombies are not the problem here These aren t 28 Days Later zombies which, if we re going to get technical, weren t really zombies at all that are smart and run scary fast These are slow, dumb, lumbering things that hunt mainly by smell, and whose strategy for finding food is basically to wander around and hope to stumble within grabbing distance of something edible The zombies in The Walking Dead are not a huge threat The threat is the people left behind, trying to make a life in this disaster wasteland aftermath Let me warn you right away it ain t pretty Even our good guy main character, the former police officer Rick, cracks under the pressure and becomes significantly less heroic than he wishes he could be People kill other people They torture and rape other people, and do similarly awful things in order to survive This isn t a zombie movie, where the tight knit group pf heroes find a safe haven or maybe even a cure and then the credits roll There are no credits here, and even when our main characters find a relatively secure place where they can live, things aren t over They still have to push the zombies back every day, and find a source of food, and keep other people from attacking their hiding place And they still have to deal with each other To paraphrase Sartre, Hell isn t a zombie apocalypse, Hell is other people.

    I cannot believe the dark places this graphic novel delves No one, and I mean no one, is safe in this ongoing saga It takes place after the dead have risen and destroyed everything and follows a handful of often rotating survivors as they try to get by in a frightening new world It starts out a little slow as everything is set up but once it gets going I didn t want to put it down.It is less focused on the zombies than its core of characters and their interaction and relationships but there is plenty of gore to go around It s horrible, sad and unputtdownable This volume collects issues 1 48 of the long running series and man is this sucker heavy

    Wow To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.Where to begin I really enjoy reading comics or graphic novels, if that s the term you prefer and am constantly on the lookout for something new to enjoy in the genre For the most part, I tend to read classic, well known stuff like Alan Moore s work or Maus or things like that Recently I got the itch to try out something a bit , well, recent Something new and fresh.It seems like everybody s reading The Walking Dead nowadays, and also raving about it This compendium holds an average rating of 4.44 here, which isn t half bad, and there s a lot of very positive reviews on here So I decided to pick it up Now, having read through it all, I m confused I just don t get the praise the series gets.I like the concept I like the dark no one is safe atmosphere The art is fittingly bleak and gritty, if not particularly inspired.The problem with The Walking Dead is that it s boring and badly written Nearly all of the characters are either shallow, plain or outright annoying, especially the women except Andrea Dialogue is awkward and clunky, riddled with cliches, worn phrases and forced exposition It just sounds unnatural, which is pretty problematic for a comic that centers around conversations and social relations.So the series is basically about about character development And that s great But if you do it badly, you end up with a cheap soap opera And that s what The Walking Dead really is a mediocre soap opera With zombies Even the zombies are kind of lame and serve primarily as an excuse to include mindless action scenes, which do little to break up the monotony of it all Rarely does anything too exciting happen and the plot moves forward at a snail s pace People die and argue violently with each other all the time, but it all lacks dramatic punch After the a while, you just stop caring.This review may sound harsh, but reading through the compendium has been a frustrating experience I really wanted to like this and there were some good bits here and there, but I expected something much better based on all the positive reviews.What is it about The Walking Dead that I just don t get

    My actual rating is 4.5 stars.It s unfair to compare the comics to the TV series The two are very different from each other and I am coming into it from the wrong side, having watched and fallen in love with the show first and then discovering the comics However, comparisons are inevitable as they still share so much in common They have the same basic plotline s, the same locations, and a lot of the same characters even if these characters can sometimes be very different I admit that I do slightly prefer the series but as I watched it first my bias was already directed towards it Despite that, I still loved the comics and was absolutely gripped from start to finish and I appreciate the fact that they re both using different mediums to tell the story and what works for one doesn t work for the other The main difference which I felt was necessary was the pacing The comics move at a very fast pace and in this format it works People would not buy comic after comic of nothing much happening and little action and drama, it would make for a very dull read and people would get bored The show moves at a slower pace because it has to If the show moved at the same pace as the comics, people would lose interest because there s nothing to really hold onto As soon as one thing happens, it s straight onto the next and the comics have characters dropping like flies A show couldn t do that The pacing also means that a similar thing happens to the characters In the comics, the characters have to develop quickly and this can sometimes result in moments that seem completely out of the blue or sudden but it works because they keep the entertainment going In the show, the characters are able to develop at a slightly slower and realistic pace which allows the viewer to get attached to them and invested in them I realised about half way through reading this compendium that the reason I slightly prefer the show is because the slower pacing works better for me and for my tastes However, I m sure there are many who would feel the complete opposite as I have definitely seen complaints about the shows slow pace before and I think some people would be better suited to the pacing of the comics.I found a lot of the differences interesting in the general plot of the story Andrea was pretty awesome in the comics and while I didn t mind her in the show, I can see that her character was done a huge disservice On the other hand, Carol was vastly improved on in the show Michonne was still just as badass in both but I felt glad that she didn t have to go through the same trauma The Governor was on a whole other level of evil in the comics than the show He has always been my most hated villain in the show because although we were shown people that technically did worse or insane things, I found him incredibly creepy and unnerving because he s the kind of manipulative bastard that I can t stand The show gave him some episodes that seemed like they were trying to almost redeem him which I hated so I was so glad that the comics showed him as truly vile throughout Some of the characters from the show don t exist in the comics and vice versa and while I missed the presence of some of the characters Read Daryl and Merle I wasn t fussed about the exclusion of others On the other hand, I could understand why they d left out some of the characters from the comics as they really just felt like spare parts and extra bodies with no real purpose besides getting killed off Maggie remained in the show but Hershel s other kids there were 5 others besides Maggie were condensed into the character of Beth, who I admit I wasn t the biggest fan of but I think having just her instead of trying to squeeze all the others into it made a lot sense for the show.There were certain plot lines that I felt would ve been great had they been added to the show but there were also others that I thought were probably best left out or altered as some of them were I m glad that the Andrea Dale relationship was portrayed differently I was glad that Shane view spoiler was around for longer in the show, I felt like that escalated way too quickly in the comics and I liked the slow build up to it in the show seeing Shane get to the breaking point hide spoiler

    The increased public awareness of post traumatic stress disorder has had a positive effect on zombie comix.Before recent wars and criminal adventures and subsequent psycho medical research and publicity, PTSD was all but ignored by zombie comix.Characters would be terrorized by zombies, displaced from their homes by zombies, see friends, loved ones, and coworkers die and then become zombies, but with the exception of some tears and wailing there were no real emotional consequences to zombie related events that would have to be profoundly traumatic.OK, I could be wrong, never having read any zombie comix comix is the wrong word, but graphic novel Does that describe an incomplete collection of separate issues But I m just assuming zombie comix were pretty much like most action comix, movies, novels, and television shows where it is commonplace for characters to witness the most disturbing things and experience fallout for only twenty or so scripted seconds or less Oh my God that was terrible Yeah, but it s over now You re right We have to move on In action fiction of most media people get over emotional trauma even faster than bullet wounds.My favorite television series The Walking Dead is not like that I read the first compendium of the comix it was based on to see if they were like that They are not They are full of rich post traumatic goodness Er, badness This is about people who are so messed up by the zombie apocalypse that you realize the title may really be referring to them.But how else could there be 1,088 pages of comix about a zombie apocalypse if it were all Oh no Zombies are coming Let s fight and or run These comix are less about zombies than they are about interpersonal dynamics among individuals under an inconceivable amount of stress with all familiar support and comfort erased.I ve always had a taste for fiction that highlights the fragility of society It is so easy to let ambient convention sink so deep into your skin that you are utterly of the mass illusion that the way things are is natural, inevitable, given, reality Good fiction Blindness can deliver the nice nasty shock it takes to wake up from that dull dream, but unfortunately the bad fiction is, in that sense, soporific The Walking Dead is good fiction, though not unconventional enough to provide a broader scope of such wakey wakey shock beyond the post apocalyptic PTSD thang I love that sentence, if I may say so myself The art is typical of any broody paneled story of this very established genre, and laid out with a formal strictness that makes the 19th century novel template look like a Rorschach blot Wares are rare, as are Clowes If you know of , please say It s about time folks were giving graphics an overdue modernist kick in the ass.But as far as reliance on tradition goes, you could do worse than Shakespeare Yes, I said Shakespeare 1 Conflict one 2 Conflict two 3 Violence, resolving one of the above, complicating the other 4 Discourse on ethics 5 Repeat.On Ethics and ZombiesSo, does The Social Contract get seriously edited, redacted, remixed, or tossed on the fire when the implied society of social is relegated to a nostalgia you d best not indulge If random chance and arbitrary tragedy are the only reasons a group is thrown together is there an obligation to defend the group, and from what does this obligation arise On what grounds do you harm outsiders for this obligation This is just a slip of the mighty wads of ethical issues that erupt and are handled mostly badly by the characters, but you should expect nothing less, er I mean , from the irrevocably traumatized.
