   Walking Dead Book 5 HC,1/15/2011 11:49:26 AM
 
After reading ""The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1"", I was extremely eager to pick up where it left off. ""Book 5"" is where it's at. ""Book 5"" follows comic #49-#60 and doesn't disappoint. I found that it picked up the story line nicely and maintained the same consisten writing that I had come to love in ""The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1"". My only disappointment was that I couldn't put it down and I finished it in a matter of hours. :( Fortunately...In my attempt to catch up to the newly released Issue #80, I also have ""Book 6"" and ""Volume 13"" to read through. If you're looking for a great zombie/survival horror read...This is where it's at. However, I'd encourage you to start at the beginning.

I have to be honest, I never even heard of "The Walking Dead" until it's TV run this past fall on AMC. After reading through "World War Z" and "The Zombie Survival Guide", I've been craving some zombie goodness. After watching the AMC series, I knew I needed to track the comic book series down, and fast. "The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1" was one of the quickest ways to catch up. "The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1" covers comics #1-#48 and was a read I couldn't put down, and I really don't enjoy reading. It grabbed me and just wouldn't let go, much like the "walkers" found in story line. The story lines of "The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1" are rich and will leave you feeling fulfilled while craving what happens next. Fortunately, "The Walking Dead: Book 5" and "The Walking Dead: Book 6" help you get a little closer to the most recent issue of "The Walking Dead", #80. My only complaint, and it's very small, is that at over 1,000 pages, this paperweight of a book is a little awkward/uncomfortable to hold. Otherwise...You won't be disappointed!
   Walking Dead Book 6 HC,1/27/2011 5:49:48 AM
 
Book #6 picks up immediately where Book #5 left off and provided me, the "catching up" reader, issues #6172. There's not much to say that hasn't been said about this series. It's GREAT! Each issue is well designed to give you a resolution to the conflict in the issue before, while providing a "meaty" middle with a slight to extreme cliffhanger ending. The way the issue endings are designed, it's like you can't help BUT get the next issue. Which is where I'm headed next..."The Walking Dead: Volume 13" which will pick up at issues #7378. I also recently ordered back issue #79 and January's current issue #80, so I'm all caught up on this fascinating series. If you've EVER needed a survival horror read...This is it, no doubt about it.

Issue #79 picks up right where "The Walking Dead: Volume 13" finishes. And again, much like my previous reviews on the series, is really good. Not to miss. It's the last issue before the next story arc starts, "No Way Out". At the point of this review, issue #79 is sold out, but if you can track it down, it'll be worth your time.
   Walking Dead Vol 13 Too Far Gone TP,1/27/2011 6:01:33 AM
 
"The Walking Dead: Volume 13" covers issues #7378, and gets you the closest to catching up to the most recent issues of #79 (December) and #80 (January). 70+ issues into this series and it's still solidly good. The story arc of Rick and company in their new dwelling is, in my opinion, an interesting addition to the overall tale of The Walking Dead. Are they getting too comfortable, will they forget how to survive because of the comforts that surround them? Can't wait to see where this series goes. Pick it up if you can find it. Currently "Out of Stock" here at the time of this review.
