Review by kayceel
How I love this series... I'm a die-hard zombie fan, and even more of a fan of 'apocalypse' fiction - some event causes the death of massive amounts of the population and the survivors are left to try and piece together a new life. This series satisfies both loves! Not so crazy about the art, though. Just not up to the standards of the older stuff, in my opinion, tho I admittedly prefer my comics, art, etc. as realistically drawn as possible, so I'm not the most reliable of critics!
Review by Clurb
Despite the fact that I'm eating this series up rather rapidly, after six volumes I'm still unsure about whether or not I'm enjoying it. The plot twists and turns without ever giving the feeling that it might actually be going somewhere, and both characters and extranious limbs are being cast away at an incredible rate of knots. The characters that are left are, for the most part, incessently whiny and unlikeable, and their dialogue trudges over the same old ground, volume after volume. But I find myself thinking that perhaps my inability to care about who'll die next is really the point of Kirkman's writing. In a dystopian future where survival is all, is there really any point in contriving to find more varied topics of conversation? And when the death rate is sitting steady at one of two characters per volume, what's the use of defining personalities or establishing relationships? What this series does very well is to convey the superfluous aspects of society, and to focus on the grinding conflicts of surviving whilst retaining your humanity. I'm just still not sure why I'm bothering.

Although there does not seem to be a happy ending coming anytime soon, I continue to enjoy reading the Walking Dead graphic series. The Zombies are constantly lurking, just waiting for any opportunity to taste human flesh and satisfying that taste on a regular basis. However, it is no surprise that the dystopian society that has emerged after the Zombie epidemic took control has also resulted in a survival-of-the-fittest struggle between bands of human survivors. Rick’s band of survivors fights for survival with both living and rotting people in this violent episode. I don’t see anything but more of the same in future episodes. However, I will surely be reading them.

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

Vol 6 has some torture scenes in it and is not for the faint of heart. It is however a great graphic novel
