The epic tale of survival continues. Rick Grimes is on a mission. He's got a long road ahead of him and many obstacles in his way, but he's determined. There's a lot resting on his shoulders. He cannot fail. He must not fail. Too much depends on it.

    The Something made me restrain from passing on the title this week and dropping The Walking Dead from my reading roster. Im glad I gave it one more issue. The best series have readers asking questions. This title has rekindled that urge. Add a bucket of blood, yet another surprise ending and intriguing subplots that simmer just below the main questions. The result is one of comics better titles just waiting for Hollywood to come knocking with a picture deal. Read Full Review

    I do have some problems with Charlie Adlard's work in that there are moments where the action isn't quite as dramatic as it could be. I mean the scene where Tyreese unleashes his anger on the young man who killed his daughter could've been delivered in a more visually dramatic fashion as could've the scene where Rick deals with a loose end. I can also see how some fans might complain that it's a little difficult to tell who's who, but this is due in large part to the lack of color, and the simple fact that there's so many characters running around in these pages (though Robert Kirkman is doing his best to resolve this problem). However, the art is at its best when it's delivering the zombie action, as the scene where our cast is clearing out the gym managed to deftly convey the overwhelming nature of these creatures, as they descend on one of the characters. The visual impact of the final page is also undeniable. Read Full Review

    Even with the horror that is happening, a couple find time to become intimate on a barbershop chair at this prison that they hide out in. There are zombies everywhere and whenever they have to fight through a crowd of zombies, my heart races fast. I still can't get the image of Tyreese being engulfed by the undead. Another image that will stay with me, is when Shane rises from the grave, gets a lecture and then is shot in the head...yikes! I don't know if I can take anymore of this, it's giving me the willies.

    A book that allows several characters a chance to get out from the background. Rick story is still important and interesting but it doesn't take up the whole book like it often does. It shows a lot of people adjusting to life in their new home and one character learning to deal with the big reveal in the last issue.

    Amidst the haunting realization that “We’re all infected,” Rick witnesses an infuriated Tyreese go postal on Chris. This marks the second time that Tyreese explodes into a rage and murders someone. The first time was when he murdered Julie’s almost-rapist earlier on. While both Chris and the rapist’s deaths are no great loss and while we can totally understand where Tyreese is coming from, the look of sheer horror reflected in Rick’s eyes says it all. Like us, Rick knows that Tyreese is a good man, a loving father, and a steadfast friend. Nine times out of ten, he’s a gentle giant, and yet . . . this new and twisted way of life has driven him to murder on not one but TWO occasions. Of all the rather expansive cast right now, p more
