3.0 out of 5 stars Starting to feel like it has run its course, 3 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Walking Dead Volume 15 TP: We Find Ourselves (Paperback)
If you're thinking about buying v15 of the Walking Dead you are probably already a fan. However, this collection is the slowest paced so far with a heavy emphasis on dialogue and character reflection.
I've really enjoyed the series so far with its mix of strong characters, real horror and occasional melodrama, but this one felt like filler between stories or less kindly, like Kirkman has lost direction.
I'm not quite ready to bail yet but wouldn't hang around if this new, slower, pace was the norm.

Not good news, dialogue-heavy Walking Dead is really tedious, mainly because the characters aren't interesting or deep enough to be examined that closely. I have all fourteen previous volumes but this is the first one I've hesitated on purchasing, it feels like none of the interesting questions have yet to be answered and there's not even a hint from Kirkman that they will be anytime soon.

I agree completely - I don't think Kirkman has the characterisation or dialogue nailed to the level required for this kind of word-heavy emotional exposition. Quite a bit of it comes across as clumsy and unnecessary. There's also a worrying amount of harking back to old characters or events - never a good sign for an ongoing series, as it reeks of nostalgia rather than fresh ideas.
