Book Description

28 April 2009 Walking Dead (Book 4)
The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled: no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living. Life in the prison starts to get interesting for Rick Grimes and the rest of our survivors. Relationships heat up, fizzle out, and change entirely almost overnight. By the end of this volume, relationships between key characters are radically changed, setting the stage for future events in TheWalking Dead. It is a reprint edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 26 Jun 2009
I'd heard good things bandied about with regards to this series, but hadn't read any of the issues - I noticed a copy in my local library so decided to give it a whirl.

What can I say, other than it was absolutely brilliant - captivating - I couldn't put it down.

The characterisation and plot is right up there with anything Gaimen, Miller, Moore, Morrison, Mignola or Niles have produced at their very best, whilst being in it's own right completely unique.

Yes it's basically a survivor story, and yes there are zombies, but what makes this such a fantastic read is the huge depth and individuality of each character - this fast paced chapter in the series races across the page like a movie, and the stark graphic allows the reader to fill the gaps with their own imagination.

If this review comes across as mawkish, then so be it, but based on this copy, I've snapped up a copy of the omnibus covering vols. 1-8 and will be picking up the remaining vols. so far.

Outstanding - can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Are The Walking Dead? 20 Jun 2009
The graphics and story lines of this grim, bleak, zombie-plagued world continue to be terrific. The first couple of Walking Dead's came across a little close to a film story-board treatment at times, but by books 3 and 4, there is more depth, more power. If you are browsing and wondering whether to buy, don't hesitate, buy them all...before it's too late.

Wow, this is so far the best of the series that I have read so far. With shocks everywhere and misconceptions of madness, this is worth the read.

This volume was harder to finish than the earlier ones. A lot more talking but some of it felt like it was filling for time.
