Format: Paperback
Volume 8 contains editions 43-48 of the original weekly comic. The last page of the last book saw The Governor advancing atop a tank yelling "Kill them all", as volume 8 is titled "Made To Suffer" I must admit to feeling apprehensive about what I was going to see in this volume, I'd be happy if this book was only 2 pages long and ended with Rick's group and the prison defended easily and without casualty, but this is The Walking Dead and nobody is safe...!

We jump back in time a few weeks at the start of the book. We see The Governor's men discover his mutilated body and nurse him to health - but revenge is The Governor's priority and soon the flashback is over and we are at the same moment where the last volume ended, a full on assault on the prison. The Governor's methods are twisted but intelligent, it's all about mind-games. Not just the way he wants to take the prison by surprise after letting Rick's group relax a little, but he fires up his own people. He rouses them to demand bloodshed through manipulative propaganda, telling them that the people they are about to attack aren't people at all - they are worse than the monsters that roam outside. He prepares his `forces' to expect to kill women and children, but to not see them as women and children, instead they are to show no mercy as they are "creatures who kill without a second thought, with no regard for human life. They don't deserve to live".

It's all action in this volume, but again, with a focus how it is affecting the group. "All out war" is the best synopsis I can give for this volume, and as with any war there are victims on both sides. To give any more detail would reveal spoilers, but the events of this book really do mean that everything changes - nothing can be the same.

Format: Paperback
This book marks the end of the first act of The Walking Dead - and maybe even the end of the series for some readers! Each volume in this series has gotten progressively darker and more gruesome but Volume 8 is challenging you to stick around because it’s so outright disgusting. I’m thinking of one page in particular near the start where you get necrophilia, incest, and paedophilia all at once! I know, just one of those elements would be sickening to see - but all three? Wow.

And it’s completely unnecessary! We already know the Governor is a sick puppy after the whole decapitated heads in boxes in his living room scene(s), so seeing him frenching his zombie daughter? Ugh. At least I think that’s what he was doing, removing his daughter’s teeth so he could get in close and open-mouth kiss her without her biting him… I don’t know why Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard thought we needed to see that - and even more surprising that Image would publish that! - but the scene’s there.

It’s a testament to the strength of the story that I saw such a horrible scene and kept reading - and will keep reading the series - because if I wasn’t invested in the story, I’d have dropped the book and walked away. All I can say is Kirkman and Adlard are two messed up people. Is that what the subtitle refers to - the suffering these two put their audience through?

Anyway - the rest of the book. The last page of the last volume showed the Governor rock up to the gates of the prison and begin their attack. The opening chapter of this book takes us back to after Michonne had fled Woodbury after nearly torturing the Governor to death and follows his story up to the current event.

If you are looking at this book, I will assume that you are a fan of the comic book series 'The Walking Dead'.

I will not give anything away, other than I was truly blown away!

SO much is crammed into this piece of work, so much happens, there are many unexpected turns and many unexpected events that take place!

Prepare yourself for a jaw dropping story! Strap yourself in, it is one heck of a ride!

Another option is to go for the first and second 'Compendium' of 'The Walking Dead' for a cheaper long term investment, though it is a lot more chunky and these single books are easier to hold and you get to see more art work! (Saying that the first Compendium has books 1-8 in it, so it would not be cheaper if you already own books 1-7, it would make more seance to buy this and then the second Compendium!)

Either way, it is a price worth spending for a story you will want to read time and time again!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having read books one to seven over the last fortnight I settled down with book eight. I was expecting the usual tense ride - what I didn't expect was for Kirkman to rip my heart out of my chest and stamp on it in the dirt.

Book Eight can only be described as horrific, heart breaking and depressing - despite the fact that it is so well written you'll smile at how good the writing is before sitting shell shocked at the events.

Some of the events, well you KNEW they were coming but you didn't know when and how. What Kirkman does is hit you quickly then without letting you catch your breath he hits you again, and again and again.

The final two issues are some of the most traumatic I have ever read and I've read comics for several decades. This title is up there with Preacher and Y - The Last Man in terms of emotional investment for the reader. Simply brutal, simply wonderful.
