I started reading the comic books after being a big fan of The Walking Dead TV series.
Volume 8 doesn't hang about. It includes some flashbacks so you get a more complete view of the current plot. The volume is packed with action and twists, definitely one of the more page turner-y volumes in the series thus far. Action, twists, turns, great dialog, what more could you ask for! On to Volume 9!

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.

This is where two groups of people stop being survivors and start being soldiers and they take up arms to try to see if the place where Rick and his gang have take sanctuary is worth the price that is about to be paid.

You know when someone builds something up for you and when you get to it your kind of disappointed? Well that sadly happened for me with this. Still deserves five stars as amazing action packed issue, TWD is as harsh as always in its treatment of characters but you knew that already if up to book 8, well that does not change here & some exciting plot developments. It's just after having posted it about by numerous reviews & the Amazon page that this issue is such game changer, I maybe expected a bit more & kind of saw what for most was a big twist coming. I'd imagine if reading comics would have blown me away, but we'll seeing the front cover of the next graphic novel gave it away for me slightly so if have not seen it avoid looking. Though this could just be my over exposure to things talking am quite good at guessing twists on tv/books. Which is part of fun but at same time you can be slightly disappointed not surprised. Enjoy it, it's a stunner of an issue though.

By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 July 2014
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.

Oh god. Walking Dead is so relentlessly grim that it's easy to get a bit complacent at times, because only terrible things ever seem to happen you sometimes feel like you know what you're going to get when you sit down to one. A whole bunch of strands come to a head here though, and when things hit the fan they hit them so hard my jaw was agape. Brilliant reading, and probably the most gripped I've been by TWD so far.

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.
