This is the latest volume in The Walking Dead series, tales of survival in a world of the dead.

I have to admit to being stunned after the last volume of the walking dead (17) and wondering where this was going next.

Kirkman has handled this beautifully here. There's no one dimensional bad guy here and no stereotype being recycled, this is a whole new kind of monster But if this shows us anything it's that this is a new kind of Rick, a new kind of Carl and the survivors are not who they were.

This is building beautifully and I couldn't put this down racing through it in one session.

Truly gripping and a sign the series is still thriving.

This is the next chapter in what can only be described as one of the toughest spots Rick and the others can possibly find themselves in.

Do things get worse, or will thing get better from here?

Hope, purpose, dreams and the future all hang in the balance as the group try to find their feet again, cling to one and other and make the next step together... Or will they?

Time to find out...

The Walking Dead is one of the best comic book series I have ever read and reviewed! I would highly recommend this to everyone and anyone, as long as you had read the other 17 volumes so you know the characters and story thus far.

Well worth the investment - Enjoy!

Like other reviewers i was beginning to think that maybe the series was losing its way, how wrong I was.
Volume 18 is back with a bang, Negan's character is awesome, the dialogue and everything about him is brilliant. He comes across a little like Merle from theTV series. Plus along with another new character who looks promising, this instalment shows the series still has plenty of legs.
If you are a fan of the TV show do not try and pick the comics up here, go back to volume 1 and enjoy the whole epic from the start.
Buy it, buy them all.

Following the events of the Volume 17: Something to fear, this is an extremely defining installment to the walking dead.
After being completely shocked at the seriousness of the events that occur in the previous chapter, I had no idea what to expect when begging Volume 18.
Begin to retrieve more information about 'The Saviors', but prepare to still be left wondering what the F*CEDY F*CKING F*CK goes on inside Negan's head.

A new side to many characters is discovered throughout this beautifully crafted chapter.

This is a subtle volume. Not a quiet before the storm, not an exercise in the boredom involved in the aftermath of a crisis, and not a tantalising use of suspense. This is important shit being revealed.
Negan. That’s who is on your mind. Clearly he is a monster, worse than the Governor if the events of the last volume are anything to go by. This volume tells you more about him. You won’t love him after this book but, thanks to Kirkman’s skilful writing, you will see he is a complex character. The brainless mass of the zombie antagonists demand a deep and sophisticated cast.
This is the end of the world and people have been stripped of the social veneer that lubricated civilisation. Is the best thing for a community a strong, harsh leader who is consistent and who obeys his own rules? How does the unpredictable and emotionally fraught Rick compare to that standard?
A lot of this book’s strength and intelligence is below the surface and relies on you to ask the questions about what it shows you. There are some shocks but less than the average book. It won’t let you forget what happened last time either. That wound will take time to heal.
Nothing here will question your faith in this series and like all books now the ending just makes you want the next one even more. Thumbs Up!

Bought as a present for a friend who has become addicted to the TV series and now the graphic novels too! She loves it, and me for giving it to her!

You can't go with with this book. Every volume gets better and better and it needs 5 stars as a great horror comic. I never want to see it end.

Kirkman continues to weave sublime stories into the fabric of this universe. Really enjoying this new plot. More Negan and Lucille the better.

A very good read and well worth the purchase.

I found the development of the characters throughout the story both convincing and moving. There are some events that really grab you by the throat and get you emotionally involved (I won't say anymore than that).

Really looking forward to the next issues and the new story arc "All Out War" (Coming out in October.
