    7 reasons the Comic is better than the TV show 1) The comic takes a page to explore a character; the show, (gah!) a whole hour! 2) The comic doesn’t drop heavy-handed metaphors on your head - a flower, a big can of pudding, etc. 3) The comic can push the language/violence envelope 4) There is no mediocre/bad acting in a comic 5) The comic didn’t spend a whole year on Hershel’s farm 6) The comic doesn’t have crappy CGI 7) In the comic, the bad guys are even more evil and crazier than the TV show

Negan yet again proves that you never can guess what he will do next, but you can bet that he has his own code of honor and each movement made is carefully planned ahead. Meanwhile, Rick is making alliances with the Hilltop and the Kingdom and preparing to go to war. However, Rick still doesn’t know enough about Negan and his Saviors and that terrible lack of information will turn Alexandria in a earlier war zone, where nobody would be safe and blood will run not matter what. As in real life, knowing who is right and who is wrong is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish.

    2.5 stars. I think this was the one that made me roll my eyes too often. If I didn't need to know what happens, I'd be so done with the series after this clusterfuck. I mean really, that tiger? UGH.

    I can't believe it, but Negan is growing on me as a character. Despite his psycho tendencies and brutal, Medieval manner, I'm finding him waaaay more interesting than I ever did the Governor. There's a black humor that surrounds him that when mixed with his blunt badassery style is just ... well... bloody entertaining. His confrontation with Rick is tense, exciting as hell, filled with profanity and written on the edge of a razor. You ever hear the one about the stupid fuck named Rick who fuc I can't believe it, but Negan is growing on me as a character.

His confrontation with Rick is tense, exciting as hell, filled with profanity and written on the edge of a razor. You ever hear the one about the stupid fuck named Rick who fucking thought he knew shit but didn't know shit and got himself fucking killed? And really, I know Rick is supposed to be the good guy "hero", but I took some small amount of pleasure in seeing him dressed down Negan-style: "In case you haven't noticed...you're fucking fucked you stupid fucker." It's this confrontation scene which saves this volume from mediocrity and mere filler as we move towards the "big" final(?) showdown with Negan and his band of merry psychokillers. Is Kirkman finally edging closer to a climax that's auspicious enough to end the series on? I hope so. If this storyline is not satisfactorily concluded soon, it will officially become the Coronation Street of zombie storytelling, and nobody wants that. Get out while the blood is still fresh on the page.

    These are so short and I'm not sure what to write about them individually when I read them back to back. Still enjoying this story arc and can't wait to see what happens!

    It takes a village to stop the nasty Negan...well, actually THREE villages. Rick's finished with sitting on his hands and he's raising an army. That's right. The three communities will join forces to stop that evil psycho and his spiky bat named Lucille. That's the plan, anyway, so you can imagine that NOTHING will go as planned. This one probably only deserves 3 stars, but there were some nice moments. Michonne gets all giggly and girlish with tiger-guy, and there's some good, snappy rhetoric b It takes a village to stop the nasty Negan...well, actually THREE villages.

Once again, Jesus Saves...the day, then takes Rick aside to tell him, "You're a leader we can follow" as the sun sets over the zombie-proof fence. And the glory of the Lord shown all about them, yadda, yadda, yadda. Time out for some father/son bonding with Carl, and...it's all over. It ends pretty much the same as the last book only Negan is EVEN MORE pissed off this time. One of these days, there's gonna be a war...maybe...

Rick, Jesus and Ezekiel come up with a plan to unite their communities but in good old walking dead fashion things don't start as great as you'd expect. It's good to see Maggie and Sophia back, However Sophia isn't liking life at the Hilltop and wants to go back to Alexandria, Maggie's pregnancy is well and truly happening. Gregory i think is starting to like maggie a little bit which its coming off a little creepy. Rick starts to let people in on his secret plan to take on Negan and each of the people he tells has a different reaction, which i liked because it showed where the different members of the community are willing to do but at the same time i think not everyone is ready. i LOVE Ezekiel's pet tiger shiva i would literally just purposely spend time with it and hope that it wouldn't kill me. Spencer is killed by Negan in this issue because he thinks Rick can no longer be a leader and wants Negan himself to kill rick but Negan think's this is a stupid idea and sticks a knife in Spencer's gut killing him instantly. Rick's plan to kill Negan while he leaves Alexandria doesn't go very well like most of Rick's past plans. Andrea and Dwight get into a fight that almost kills Andrea but lucky she gets one big push that pushes Dwight out of the clock tower. Negan lines up Heath, Holly, Rick and another Alexandrian resident, but before Negan can begin Jesus, Shiva and Ezekiel make it to Alexandria just in time to drive Negan and some of the Saviours away from Alexandria. War is coming and now War is here the next two issues will put every character to the test and it's finally time for every man and woman to stand up and take the fight to Negan and the Saviours. to not only fight for another day but to fight for their own freedom.

    Hey, that was a pretty solid volume for a change! Negan is still very thin as a character, but at least he's fun. Rick is acting very stupid, but that moves the plot along. At last, for the first time in the past ten or so volumes, something is finally happening in TWD! Curious to see how that war turns out.

    I know I should take Negan seriously and be frightened of him but he just makes me laugh too much. That last quote about the helicopter dick had me in stitches!!! One of my favourite villains ever for sure. SO quote-worthy. WE'RE GOIN' TO WAR GUYS!!! Bring on Volume 20!

    After 19 volumes of The Walking Dead, I’ve gotten a feel for how this series works – or at least I thought I did. Usually after a couple of exciting books full of action, Robert Kirkman takes a volume to cool things off and have the characters talk about what just happened. That’s what volume 19 started out like and I thought, bah, another boring build-up book – and then the second half EXPLODED!

Usually after a couple of exciting books full of action, Robert Kirkman takes a volume to cool things off and have the characters talk about what just happened. That’s what volume 19 started out like and I thought, bah, another boring build-up book – and then the second half EXPLODED! Rick and Jesus are assembling a force to take down Negan, recruiting fighters from Hilltop and the Kingdom without Negan knowing about the tsunami that’s brewing right under his nose. But then he inadvertently kicks things off when he goes to Rick’s place to collect tribute while Rick’s away in the Kingdom making plans. Now this war is on! It’s tricky reviewing a series this far deep into the story. Chances are if you’re still interested in this series, you’re going to read volume 19 whether the reviews say it’s good or not, in which case you’ve already read this and know what happened, so whatever I say won’t be a spoiler. On the other hand, maybe you’re reading this review and you’ve not read this far yet and want to know if it’s still a good series, in which case I don’t want to give away plot points, especially in this volume as they’re pretty damn surprising! At any rate, I’ll err on the side of caution and keep spoilers out of this review. The thing you should know is when you put Rick and Negan together, sparks fly (and not the romantic kind)! The tension between these two is cray-cray and Kirkman knows readers are waiting for the moment when Rick kills Negan (it couldn’t be the other way round - could it?) and tantalisingly plays with that expectation here to thrilling effect. With this opening salvo, who lives and who dies? And I have to say, if the Christian Jesus were half as badass as the Jesus in this book is, I’d have converted years ago! He appears and disappears from rooms without a whisper, he’s deadly without guns or knives, he moves like a ninja – he’s basically Batman without the outfit! I know Kirkman’s got a tendency to take out characters on a whim and, besides Glenn, there hasn’t been a character death – out of the dozens – in the 19 volumes that’s really stuck out, but I’d be really upset if Jesus got the axe! But you know if he did and he became zombie Jesus, someone would make the “I thought he was supposed to rise after 3 days, not 30 minutes!” line. Also some of Kirkman’s trademark awkward dialogue makes an appearance here. Andrea repeatedly says to herself “we don’t die” referring to her and Rick, which doesn’t sound so much like dialogue as Andrea reading Kirkman’s notes after he forgot to write her lines. Volume 19 starts slow but begins sprinting at the halfway mark and doesn’t stop until the end – it’s an absolutely blistering read! This human war – amidst the zombie apocalypse of all things – has begun and it looks like it’s gonna be the best thing to have happened to the series yet!

When Rick takes what he sees as a golden opportunity to take Negan out when he is vulnerable, Negan proves just how much smarter he is than Rick but having proper backup. It seems that war is now inevitable, but on Negan's terms rather than on Ricks. And yet, for all the stupidity that Rick shows here, people are still willing to follow him because "You're a leader we can follow" as Jesus says at the end of this book. Yeah, a leader they can all follow to their deaths. These are deaths I'm not interested in seeing any more.

    3.5 Stars. Well the next few issues should be super awesome as they are heading to war. This one was kind of slow and it did feel dragged out but a few good things happened. I really love Negan, he's so entertaining and messed up! Rick is still so annoying and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree because Carl is also annoying. Ezekiel and Michonne though?... Um yes! Michonne should be the leader, she is a badass!

    This felt like treading water to me. We know there's a big showdown coming... Just not here. Next volume? Maybe. I would have been a lot more frustrated with how little happens here if it weren't for some of the more well-written scenes between characters, and if Negan weren't such a chillingly compelling villain.

    This volume was so epic!! I can't believe how excited I was as this one unfolded! Again, I have to mention how fascinating it is to compare this to the T.V. show. The differences make me feel like I get an extended version of this world, which is awesome because I am always left wanting more. Seriously hope we get to see some of this in the upcoming episodes of the tv show... Can't wait for more!! This volume was so epic!! I can't believe how excited I was as this one unfolded!

    It's been awhile since I've read The Walking Dead, so it was great to get back into the world. Volume 19: March to War follows the group as they prepare for war against Negan and his group. Rick is doing what he does best in this volume and that is protecting his group by any means necessary. At first glance this volume looks to be set up for the next volume. It does set up the next arc of the story, but there still is lots of action. A few things happen in this volume that I didn't see coming.

    5 Stars We get a little more background on other community leaders that deal with Nagan; not sure what to make of them. All I know, is that halfway through, the shit hit the fan. Rick went off half-cocked and gave us war-mongering fans some much needed murder and mayhem... I feel so twisted to have enjoyed it; but enjoy I did. I am ready for this war. It may take the last 4 books in the series; but so be it. I have 4 more to before I am caught up... I need a Book 25 to come out asap.

    My notes on the next few volumes definitely lack detail. Unfortunately, my hubbie was in the hospital for five days. While these were some of the only books I could focus on long enough to read, my notes aren't great. Good news is, my hubbie is on the mend! Without further ado, said notes (spoilers included): . . . -The groups are coming together with the common cause of fightingthe Saviors. -Jesus asks Hilltop to saddle up; Kal, a guard from Hilltop, gets the yips and rides off to tell Negan.

He opens fire as Negan's group drives out. A hidden group of Negan's men fire back and thwart the attack. -Andrea is physically attacked while sniping from a tower. After a tussle, she boots him off the top of the tower. Rick thinks the body hurtling towards the ground is Andrea's. -Jesus and Ezekiel come riding in at the very last minute and save the day. -Negan gives his men a pump-up speech: they're going to war. I'd rate this book an R for swearing, violence and gore, and other adult content.

    I can't accuse this latest Walking Dead volume of false-advertising. THe title clearly says it's a "March to War"--meaning that the war doesn't actually happen. What DOES happen is a lot of talking about going to war (which the last three volumes have been about), a lot of lackluster artwork (the characters are starting to become VERY generic and hard to tell apart--especially as they aren't DOING a whole lot lately), and well, me finally rooting for Rick to get his butt throughly kicked (which I can't accuse this latest Walking Dead volume of false-advertising.

See, one had an eyepatch and the other has a barbed wire baseball bat. Completely different. But as the Governor was the most interesting character in his story arc, a rehashed version in the form of Negan and his band of "Saviors" is the most interesting here. Or at least the most colorful. But that's primarily a function of his being so over-the-top as compared to the main characters who are so unbelievably DULL by this point that you almost root for Negan simply because he DOES STUFF. Three stars are for the the last 30 pages or so which provide some needed and welcome tension but overall the story drags and with it, the artwork. As most of it is some unengaging dialogue, the character artwork is pretty boring. Add to that the fact that except for a couple of characters (King Ezekiel, Jesus, and Negan), it's increasingly hard to tell secondary characters apart in either form or content. They're just kind of there. The more this series continues to prop Rick up as THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN LEAD US (TM) despite his repeated screw-ups and generally poor decisions the more it suffers. Because honestly, he's just not that good. It's ironic and unfortunate that there's a character in the book that actually calls Rick out on his poor judgement and in the next breath vows to FOLLOW HIM ANYWHERE. Eh, maybe Negan deserves to win.

    With Halloween coming up, I thought I'd catch up with the last year of The Walking Dead. I found it pretty easy to ease back into the story, considering the extreme introduction of the new antagonist, Negan, is still pretty stark in my mind after a year. Where the Governor was angry with a touch of crazy, Negan is crazy with a touch of Batman. So, basically all crazy all the time, and he plans well. This is the last ramp-up to the All-Out War storyline I've seen advertised, and it's a nice setup With Halloween coming up, I thought I'd catch up with the last year of The Walking Dead.

This is the last ramp-up to the All-Out War storyline I've seen advertised, and it's a nice setup that suggests it will be a war in every sense. 114 issues in, I know what's in store. A few atrocities, a few disturbing moments, a few surprise guest appearances by hungry zombies, some character deaths, and (with luck) the end of Negan. It does seem like a repeat of the fight with the Governor, but I'm still curious to see how it all plays out. This volume offers one or two nice plot turns that present the kickoff to Negan being finally fed up with Rick's pushing back.

    A decent (if still over-long) build up to the "All-Out War" with Negan and his Saviours which has been promised and teased for about 15 issues now, but one which is considerably stream-lined compared to what was presented during the seventh season of the TV show.

    Negan made me giggle. What does that say about me as a human? This was intense... It started slow, and midway through, I thought that it was going to be a preparatory volume for the carnage that would follow. And then the shit hit the fan. Rick made a bad call, a rash decision, which so nearly ended in disaster. And still may. Negan is crazy... but he's interesting. And actually charming in a strange way. But still. I want to see his head on a pike. I was not a huge fan of the one he introduced Negan made me giggle. What does that say about me as a human? This was intense...

So now shit is going to be crazy intense and my oh my... it's gonna be good. :D

    So Negan visits Alexandria, for the second time, to get his half of their stuff but meets resistance. In the words of Negan, "We're going to war motherfucking motherfuckers!!"
