The sixth volume of the hardcover collection (issues 61-72) moves the story along nicely. Our survivors encounter other groups with intentions fair and foul, and we, like them, can never be certain who they can trust.

Young Ben kills his twin brother Billy, and is in turn killed by Carl when the adults can't come to terms over what to do about Ben, who clearly needed psychiatric help they couldn't provide. Dale is bitten by a roamer, but keeps it secret and goes off into the woods to die, where he is captured and partially eaten by a band of cannibal humans. Rick and the others locate them and dispatch them. They find out that Eugene's story about being a scientist who needs to get back to D.C. to find a cure for the plague is just that, a story. The group is taken in by a seemingly idyllic gated community, but at the book's conclusion we see that Rick has decided to secretly retrieve their confiscated weapons. It remains to be seen whether this will turn out to be a wise decision. There is a lot of emotional turmoil here, even for this series, particularly in the conversation with Rick and his son Carl about the death of Ben, and between Dale and Rick as Dale prepares to meet his end. And again, we see that the living are capable of far more cruelty and evil than the dead ever were.

So complex and horrifying. Love this series!
Review by schatzi
Just when I think that the series can't really get much darker, Kirkman surprises me yet again. The main characters are transforming into much more brutal versions of themselves, and once they have a chance to live in a "normal" place, it's obvious that they're having extreme difficulty fitting into the patterns that they once took for granted. The author's doing a great job of keeping the suspense going.

As always another great installment in the Walking Dead franchise. Just when we think all help is lost things appear to be on the up and up... appear.... Dark and gritty yet masterfully crafted, this book will have you questioning human nature and what separates humans from the monsters... clearly not our humanity. I can't wait for this show to catch up, this comic was destined to be an amazing television show.
