    Definitivamente en este tomo las cosas se van complicando cada vez más y eso lo hace mucho mejor e interesante : una muerte con la que he llorado, Rick enseñando a manejar las armas y disparar( lo afirmo en serio amo este Rick , mucho más que al de la serie) y lo que le ha pasado a Jim ,madre mía cual sera su futuro. Un 9,5 ,vamos subiendo de nivel. Y según muchos han dicho a partir de aquí las cosas en el comic mejoran.

    Being a huge fan of the show, I wanted to see how the original writing started and how the show writers followed and deviated from the comics. My dislikes were that the comics are much more crude, crass, and unnecessarily violent. I did like the change in relationships and how people worked together differently, and the comics have a different creepiness feel than you get watching it on TV. Overall, I prefer the show, and probably will not finish out the comic book series.

    Compared to issue 4 this was kind of meh and I think again I preferred the tv version of the herd invading the camp.

    I liked the tension building up between Rick and Shane, just waiting for that to explode now. More action with the zombies, which I like because the art style is truly amazing. A character dies and another gets bit. Exciting stuff. x

    Fun to see some differences they have edited in the show. First watched the show before I read thexe comics, no problem at all! :) Also love how creepy the zombies are without all the coloured gore. Funny to also see those flies around them in the comics!

    This is a powerful graphic novel. We learn that Rick is a good firearms teacher, and will even defy his wife. We also get to know the back stories of the characters. With all this good there must be the balance of bad...

    Rick starts to teach the people in the camp how to use the guns. Andrea stands out as the fastest learner. Carl is allowed to carry a gun much to his mother's displeasure. Donna expresses her disgust that Dale, the elder man, is living in the same camper as the young sisters, Andrea and Amy. Rick, Shane and Dale go to chop wood for the fire and they both tell Dale they have no problem with him and the girls living together, Dale tells them there is nothing going on and he just likes having a femal Rick starts to teach the people in the camp how to use the guns. Andrea stands out as the fastest learner. Carl is allowed to carry a gun much to his mother's displeasure. Donna expresses her disgust that Dale, the elder man, is living in the same camper as the young sisters, Andrea and Amy. Rick, Shane and Dale go to chop wood for the fire and they both tell Dale they have no problem with him and the girls living together, Dale tells them there is nothing going on and he just likes having a female to clean up and be around the RV. Shane and Rick also get into an argument after Rick says they need more fire wood because of the cold. Shane takes this as another attempt to move the camp. Everyone at the camp gathers around the fire at night to eat a freshly cooked meal and get to know each other more. Dale tells everyone that he was a salesman for almost forty years and after he retired him and his wife traveled in his camper, they had been attacked and his wife killed. After he put his wife to rest he headed to Atlanta to meet some cousins and he heard on the radio that it was the safest place to be. Dale met Andrea and Amy on the road at Atlanta and picked them up. Andrea took time off her job as a clerk for a law firm to drive her sister Amy back to collage when there car broke down and Dale picked them up. Glenn told everyone he was a delivery boy for a pizza place, he was deep in debt and was about to move back with his estranged parents. Allen was a show salesman and had taken his wife Donna and twin boys Billy and Ben from Gainesville to Atlanta where they found Dale and the sisters had setup a campsite. Jim told them all he was a mechanic but that's all he had to say about his life. Carol said that her husband was the breadwinner and she had taken care of her daughter Sophia and did some Tupperware selling, her husband was a car salesman and could talk anyone into anything including talking Carol info marrying him. Her husband has watched his parents die right after the dead started to rise and he never got over it. Losing her husband she took Sophia to her sisters in Atlanta but never made it and ended up at the camp. Once everyone had shared, Amy got up to use the restroom but as she entered the RV she was attacked and bitten. Zombies had lumbered into the camp and when the shots stop they had killed all the undead. Amy was dead and Jim had gotten bitten on the arm. As tension between couples rise, the group begins to get to know one another better. You can tell that time is passing again, even though there isn't a "the next day" or "a week/month later". The men's breads have grown in more and the atmosphere is getting colder. We keep seeing more and more snow in the frames. Robert Kirkman does an excellent job with the storyline. You get to know background on each of the group without having to see massive amounts of flashbacks or taking up a whole issue. You find out the basics but you get a feel for each person with how Kirkman makes the characters talk and interact. Tony Moore sets the mood with their expressions and body language. I both love and hated this issue. It goes back to gray tones again. I love the use of them for a most part with shadows and stark features and details that are more noticeable because you aren't lost with all the colors and normalcy of it to over look them. However, when it comes to gray tones and its a night scene, I kind of get so muddled in the darkness of the frames that I have a hard time focusing on the details or movements of the individuals. I know their aren't many like this and I'm grateful for it, but with such an important part of this issue being the conversations of getting to know each other it just seemed a bit over the top to have something like a walker attack happen with so much darkness around it. I say this because within the next few pages after the initial attack with Amy, the frames lighten and you can see the full detail of Jim's deranged features. Hence, I loved it and hated it. The differences between the comic and the series are only a few again. Seems to be a pattern so far. The major difference I would say is that when the camp gets attacked by walkers this time Rick and Glenn are at the camp already. In the series this walker attack doesn't occur until Rick, Glenn, T-Dog and Daryl are coming back from getting Rick's gun bag and trying to find Daryl's brother Merle. Of course this isn't from the comic since Daryl, Merle and T-Dog aren't in the story line at this point (if ever). Amy does get attacked in both but the way Andrea handles it in the series is a bit more emotional. She actually lets Amy come back as a walker before she shots her in the head. In the series several of the group are killed at this point as well. Several of the off hand members, Carol's husband Ed, Amy and Jim is bitten and like in the comic, tries to hide it. Even with the love/hate relationship I have with this issue, I still recommend it as always to fandom of The Walking Dead Universe, dystopian, zombie and apocalypse genres.

    I am loving this series so far, it is so damn good. However, I do not like how much of a stink Lori is raising about Carl having a gun. Yes, I would expect her to not want him to have one if things were still normal, but they are not normal anymore. As long as Rick and the others teach Carl proper gun safety, then there should not be any problems. It is not like he is just gonna go around shooting everyone. Something that I found foolish was them only leaving Allen behind to watch the camp. What if I am loving this series so far, it is so damn good.

Something that I found foolish was them only leaving Allen behind to watch the camp. What if a horde of zombies had attacked? Or what if a hostile group of survivors tried to steal their stuff? He'd have been slaughtered. Shane biting Rick's head off is because of his jealousy. He wants Lori and Carl for himself and is pissed off that Rick is actually alive and came back for his family. He needs to get a freaking grip, though. If Shane keeps acting this way, hopefully Rick will blow his head off, as I am so tired of listening to Shane's crap. I did like when they were sitting around the fire and telling each other about what they were like before everyone started getting sick and the zombies pretty much took over. I do not like how uptight Donna is. She needs to stop getting so upset over little things like what people say. Sure, you should not drop a ton of 'f' bombs in front of the kids, but other than that, she needs to chill out. Really, Jim? A zombie ate a chunk out of your arm and you say it is, 'just a scratch'? I would hate to know what you think a REAL injury is. I do like that Carl got to shoot a zombie in this issue.

    It's 3 weeks later from Issue 4 and everyone is shooting cans at target practice. Andrea is the best out of all the newbies. Carl gets his chance at a gun and Rick tells him he can start packing heat. This of course pisses Lori off but why wouldn't it? He's only 7!! But he looks like he's 5. Also, Carl has been wearing Rick's hat since he went on the gun run. Shane is starting to get snappy at Rick. Rick wants to move the camp away from the city and Shane is like "NOOOOS!!"

He sold cars Amy does go to the RV and then get bit. Lori is trying to get the kids into some cars to be safe then almost gets bit by a zombie when she drops her gun by Carl puts a cap in his ass. Jim does get bit but he doesn't hide it.

    Ask and ye shall receive, I guess. There were effectively two deaths in this comic. One of the girls (Amy, I think her name was), and Jim. Amy is definitely dead. Jim was bitten pretty badly. It's only a matter of time before he becomes a zombie. It's a shame. Jim was one of the characters I thought was going to make it ... at least for a while. What with the fact that he witnessed the murder of his entire family by these things. The next issue is the last in the first volume. I wonder if we'll Ask and ye shall receive, I guess.

I'm not sure how the issues are broken up this early, but the cover of issue 122 that I have suggests they've started a new ark as of issue 116. I suppose we shall see. I know I am ready to move on to a fuller story. Read more commentary and add your own here: http://www.rjspindle.com/content/the-...

    Two things: 1) Yeah, Lori, go on and shame Donna for being judgmental. Go on. 2) Carl getting his own gun was the story's Chekhov's gun. Not bad for a seven-year old. /First read 23 December 2009.
