After months of slow but necessary build-up we finally have another killer volume. And killer in the Kirkman sense of the word as the author/ butcher gets busy on his remaining cast.

To present a credible threat to our band of heroes takes something special. After the Governor and everything else they have endured it takes a different kind of menace to cause fear in Rick and the reader too. Kirkman has been driving us mad with trivialities and doldrums and the day to day boredom that much of a zombie aftermath would entail.

Did we make the mistake of believing the rosy glow on the horizon was something good? Time for us readers to get our comeuppance. There are shocks, surprises a wonderful twist and some hard to stomach brutality, the like of which we have not seen in ten volumes.

The art is great and there is nothing that distracts you from the drama unfolding before you. A real master of the craft isn't seen through spectacle and gratuity but through the subtle nuances that affect you without noticing why. Adlard knows his characters and his readers well and a small change of expression or shift in eye-line saves Kirkman a dozen words. This black and white world feels so authentic.

Definitely the most dramatic and engaging volume for some time. Definitely a Thumbs Up!

Just as the survivors are settling down to life as a part of a bigger world trading with Hilltop and clearing the saviours from the area a sudden harsh reality arrives in the form of Negan. The Saviours turn out to be bigger than Rick and the group could ever have imagined. With the constraints of television not in place the full awfulness of Negan will shock even hardened fans. In a word brutal.

Remember the days when The Walking Dead was infused with a real sense of danger? When the characters were constantly under threat & any one of them could seemingly be killed off at any time? Well those days are back.

While the end of volume 16 saw Rick enthusing about a new world emerging from the one which has now been obliterated by zombies, he soon discovers that it could be a very dark place indeed. That's because Negan & his Saviours - the group demanding supplies from the communities in the Washington area in exchange for protection - are much larger & more powerful than he had anticipated. A new world is emerging alright but it's under the control of a brutal psycho. It feels like a very long time since Rick & co. have come across a credible threat but they've got one now which may be totally beyond their abilities to cope with.

After a great many quiet, soap-operatic volumes, #17 is unflinchingly brutal, shocking & once again ends on one heck of a cliffhanger. For the first time in a long time, Kirkman has turned the dial all the way up to hardcore.

The 17th volume of this huge series and more shocks in store. Kirkman et al have never shied away from killing off main characters, especially in gruesome ways, and this volume is no different.

Rick and the survivors, originals now stand at Rick, Andrea, Glenn and Karl, come to terms with a rival gang of survivors who are superior in every way to Rick and crew. They are outnumbered, outgunned and terrified. The other leader, Negan, is shaking our survivors down -they must hand over weekly supplies to Negan or face the consequences But after Rick kills a few of his gang after an attempted attack, Negan has to show force and he does so in a horrible, brutal and shocking way. I actually had to stop reading to let it sink in.

The series has run for a very long time and I fear Kirkman is running out of ideas for what can happen to this group. These new events are reminiscent of The Guvnor and Woodbury. But Kirkman proves that he still has a few tricks up his sleeve, this time, for all intents, Rick is going to acquiesce not fight. Let's see how that goes.

If your comments are going to spoil things for those who have not yet read the book then at least give them prior warning. I've never seen such a disappointed face after my husband read a post on here.

After feeling a bit sickened by the events involving the governor, nothing got better! Volumes 8-15 seemed unendingly bleak (still amazing though) but this volume and the previous one are a return to action and hint at a lot of excitement to come. To anyone wanting to get into these graphic novels but thinking about skipping ahead - don't! They are all brilliant and the books just build up the characters more and more so that you really feel for them when they lose people, or are lost...

I have become a huge fan of the Walking Dead comic series and can thoroughly recommend this volume. If you, like me, own the two larger compendium books, I'd still recommend buying volumes 16, 17 (and pre-ordering 18), as that brings you up to date in the series. A great read.

*Minor Spoilers*
I feel like the story has never managed to re-create the suspense, drama and overall threat that the characters had during the prison act.... Until now. A new threat emerges in this volume and it's great to see a threat that the group not actually be able to overcome. It's refreshing and a much need change. Character development isn't immediately present but when you read later volumes, you realise this is one of the best and most important volumes in the whole series.

*Major Spoilers*
I felt like the death of... (One last chance to click away)

Abe was unnecessary and although shocking wasn't needed because of the Glenn death later on in the volume. It would have been better if it had been a minor character eg Eric. I love the ending and it sets it up brilliantly for the next few volumes!
