The Walking Dead : Best Defense v. 5 Paperback

3.5 out of 5 (13 ratings)


- The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.

An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living.

In a matter of months society has crumbled: no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.

In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living. - As the survivors settle into their prison home something has drawn them out into the open...out of the prison...out of their sanctuary.

This is a major turning point for the overall story of The Walking Dead, setting the stage for years to come. - Reprint Edition

Review by

Most comic series sag at some point, and the author introduces some fresh situation to keep it lively. Here the fine folks who are living behind bars to stay safe from the zombies see a helicopter fly overhead, and three of them go to investigate it. What follows is as horrific as the Zombies who lurk outside the safe gates of the prison. Any possibly more dangerous. If there were an apocalypse, what would happen to basic human behavior. The answer in this part of the series is not hopeful.

Review by

Perhaps the most graphic and disturbing volume of the series so far. We're asked to draw parallels between the savage instinct for survival possessed by both the zombies and our heroes.I still find myself tiresomely irritated by the quality of the illustration.

So far, I don't care too much for the books of The Walking Dead, although, I absolutely love the TV version.

Review by

I blew through the first five volumes too quick, and the series took a great turn with this one. Very dark twist of events. The last couple volumes were a little soapy, so I'm glad to see some action here and get a new antagonist introduced. Good stuff.

Review by

great series, this paticular volume deals with some very dark elements. Considering this is a series about zombies and death, and the destruction of the world its impressive a book like that can still shock and awe.
