The Walking Dead: 17 - Something To Fear
I'm a little behind on this bad-boy and some NINNY online ruined something in it for me, but here I am. And in the good faith I like to put forth - because we're so far along in this comic series there will be SPOILERS AHEAD. It's amazing. Read it. That is all.
So the last book left us on what was probably the most optimistic note the book has ever taken, there was a real sense of hope. And it was the job of this book to take that hope and crush it. Not only crush it, but smash it's head in until it was unrecognizable - which is exactly what happened, horrifically to a character that's been around the series for a very very very long time. In a series filled with devastating deaths this one might be the worst - and sadly I didn't really get to experience it fresh since I knew it was coming. Alas!
I love where this story is heading. I was getting worried that we were getting to a point where I didn't know what other tricks Kirkman could pull out of his bag, and this just shows how much left there is to explore in his world and it excites me to no end. I love that the comic and the series exist in such unique parallels and they play off each other, but don't force themselves into each other. My only complaint that, as fast as it does come out, that it doesn't come out even faster.
Keep it coming Robert Kirkman, I'll be right here waiting for it.
