Book Description

20 April 2010 Walking Dead (Book 6)
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 The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.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. Trapped in a town surrounded by madmen, Rick must find a way out or die trying. Meanwhile, back at the prison, the rest of the survivors come to grips with the fact Rick may be dead, and a major turning point in the series is reached. It is a reprint edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing and Thrilling in Equal Measure 10 May 2007
If you have been a fan of this series so far you are unlikely to be disappointed by this latest instalment.

Kirkman's zombie apocalypse storyline has reached a point where the zombies themselves are almost just an incidental backdrop to the main story of the survivor's descent into savagery and tribalism.

The violence depicted over a number of consecutive pages in this book goes far beyond what has been depicted in previous volumes and is all the more disturbing as it is difficult for the reader not to feel that the victim is deserving of the fate that they have bought upon themself.

What follows these scenes is easily thrilling enough to get the story moving along again and leave you eager to find out what will follow in the next volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars Torture Porn? 28 Jun 2009
This is an excellent series - definitely worth buying - but there were parts in this episode that were pretty much torture porn. It's a difficult area - I wouldn't pretend it's black and white. Zombies biting or attacking the living - quite thrilling, but a rape victim taking her revenge in graphic detail with drills and diy tools - gratuitously unpleasant. It's maybe not logical for a reader of a zombie epic to criticize some of the violence, but nonetheless in this comic I think it goes too far. The writer tries to build the moral questions of the limits of revenge into the victim / torturer's character, but, personally, I think that doesn't wash. That aside, the story is as excellent as the others in the series.

I love this series, can't get enough of the story. The characters are really deep, and you come to care for many of them and become sad when some of them meet their maker.
