TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 27 May 2010
Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead is a 'never-ending' dystopian Zombie survival horror, designed to satisfy the fan who has been left wondering what happens next after the credits have rolled in zombie-flicks. This is Book 5 in the series (as the title might suggest!) and collects issues #48-#60. Animated by Charlie Adlard, the series is entirely black & white, apart from the vivid and artistic covers of the original issues which are collected in the back of the books.

This book introduces a new Zombie threat - The Herd - where many zombies taking cues from each other start mindlessly walking together in a direction, accumulating more and more roamers and lurkers until they are a formidable size, effectively rendering static camps impossible to defend.

In Book #5, we find a wounded Rick and his son, Carl back on the road after having lost the prison, his hand and his wife to 'the Governor' at the end of #4. Initially it feels like we are just retracing our steps as they stumble back to Hershel's farm and find some of the old crew they left there the first time around; however the plot soon regains direction and pace and some new arrivals disclose that they may have a plan for the problem at hand. Is there a permanent solution? Time will tell....

Highly recommended for dystopia fans, zombie fans and graphic novel readers in general, a shining beacon for the genre!!

3.5 stars. Another great installment. I'm running out of things to say about this series now since there are so many but I still think they're really good. This one is slowed down a little compared to the last few, pace wise... But still good. We get introduced to some new characters for the first time in ages which was a welcome change and it was good to see the characters back on the road again. It felt a little like a 'filling in' section between one place and the next so I'm looking forward to the next book and seeing where the story leads them next.

The quality of this series of books is simply outstanding, if you have already bought books 1-4 in this series then this book is a must buy if not then i would recommend buying books 1-4, then this one, then the continuing series. i fail to see how you could possibly be disappointed.

On going story introducing some new and reintroducing old characters. Awesome storylines which twist and turn, looking at the effects of a post apocalyptic world on the family unit and humanity in general.

The story gets more grim for grimesy!! I love this book and the entire series so my review might be biased but The Walking Dead has to be one the best graphic novels I've ever read. Awsome.

Bought this for teenage son, who has others and is a big fan. He loves it! I feel the books are expensive so he has to get them for presents rather than as everyday reads

This was for my son who is an avid WALKING DEAD fan. He loves it, it made him very happy, therefore I have to love it for that reason.
