Review by deb_bryan
I'm genuinely surprised by the 3.5-star average rating as of this review. I only have a few moments right now, but I did want to capture that this was hands down my favorite TP thus far. This one felt much more fragmented than its tightly-knit predecessors, but in a way that enhanced the story; then, of course, it was all woven together masterfully in the end. As I read this, I wished I could hand out copies of this particular TP to friends who either (a) wonder why I read the series, (b) persist in saying that zombie novels (etc.) are "about" zombies, or (c) say that graphic novels are what people who can't write have to set for.* This was powerful writing that exemplifies why I feel TWD deserves a spot in lists of best novels ever written. Graphic or traditional writing, good writing is good writing, and this? This is superb writing. It's hard to state this in a way that's not spoilery. I wish I could include more details. The hardest part of this TP was, for me, the total despair of hope that resounded from most its pages. That was--with one exception--the bleakest I've ever felt reading TWD. But, of course, the hopelessness isn't the whole story, and I closed it with the sense it's going to linger on my mind for a long time to come. That's powerful stuff, whether or not--as with life--I wish certain things had happened differently.* Obviously I'm not going to start them off on #14! I just have to keep working at getting them to read the entire series.

Daaaaamn. This series has a history of making me yell to high heaven. Tightly grabbing the pages and staring wide eyed in disbelief. Sputtering forth a staccato of profanity. Holy hell Kirkman!! I should know by now that no one is untouchable in <i>The Walking Dead</i> universe. I <b><i>do</i></b> know and yet every time the shit hits the fan it feels like the rug has been pulled out from under me.<br/><br/>Seriously though, if Michonne ever dies I'm going to be PISSED.

Dark and lovely. Scary and brilliant. I care so much about these characters that I gasped at the big shocker, and then quietly teared up.
Review by clark.hallman
The Walking Dead, Vol. 14, No Way Out by Robert Kirkman et al. – This is an extremely intense volume of this fine graphic-novel series about desperate humans struggling to survive in a world overrun by flesh-eating zombies. In this volume the human survivors battle to survive after hoards of zombies break into their walled town. The stress of the hopelessness and extremely perilous situations are too much for even the strongest of the townsfolk, and grief is a constant enemy. Rick endures extreme fear, trauma and guilt, which causes him to change his plans for the future. It’s another savage and gripping episode.
Review by KittyBimble
****Spoilers ahead****Now I love The Walking Dead, I love the TV series, I love the comics - I just can't get enough of reading/watching stuff about a post apocalyptic world with a bunch of zombies. This volume almost got 3 stars from me because whenever the group become stationary, the interpersonal dramatics come out. Everybody seems to have sex with everybody else, it's just crazy and not to mention horrifically boring. BUT in the latter half, the walls of The Community are breached and a herd of zombies are flowing into the compound. It was brilliant.I loved seeing the new ruthless Rick, if you are trusting or too nice, you die. You need to be made of tough stuff to survive that world, people take advantage - friends and family members that turn need to be shot. It's all pretty horrific stuff. Carl getting shot was just the highlight at the end, I am dying to find out if he survives because I have read past the TV show now and so practically everything is a surprise. This series would honestly get a five star rating every time but I just don't think everybody humping everybody else is realistic. Whenever new characters are introduced I am often left wondering who is going to end up having sex with that person - it happens so often it's predictable.The speech that Rick gives at the end about the roamers being a manageable threat and his ideas about training an army is brilliant. It's about time Rick takes control back.
