Series Description

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: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living

For the last few trades, I've been wanting a book where the survivors just get to take off a few weeks from their endless grind of survival and just, oh, get a day of picnicking and touch football and scrabble tournaments. You know - the good old days! Damn that Robert Kirkland for nearly giving me exactly what I want and then explaining how the zombiepocolypse ruins everything. Again, another excellent entry. This episode is all about the idea of finding that ultimate version of rebuilt civilization and society after putting your time in the trenches. Only problem? You've been through a lot. A. LOT. The undead. The unchecked evil of humanity. The horrible choices of survival in an inhuman world. How does one simply turn a switch and go back into full trust mode again? How do you pretend that you can have cocktail parties and read trash novels and chit-chat about lawn care? Can you really trust? (Yes, I'm asking that twice.) We get no answers, but Kirkland offers up the next question beyond, "can I survive?" Which is, "what does this rebuilding society look like and how do I know when I'm there?"

*** Spoilers for those who aren¿t caught up with the series!! ***Rick Grimes and his band of survivors are on the move again. In the last book, they encountered cannibals and horrible things had to be done to ensure their safety. Carl, Rick¿s son, is dealing with the aftermath of killing Billy, another child who was a great danger to the whole group. The group encounters a lone man on the road named Aaron, who wants them to come with him and live in his safe haven. Rick is immediately suspicious. In the past, another group claimed something similar and it ended very badly. The rest of the group is more enthused to have a stable place to stay and find the newcomer to be trustworthy. They go to this safe haven and find a stable community, headed by an ex-Senator. Everything seems a little too perfect to Rick. Plus they seem to have no safeguards against other human attackers. Is Rick just being paranoid or there really something nefarious going on in this community? Can these survivors who have seen so many horrors integrate back into normal society?The Walking Dead is an excellent series. This is one in the series that is more a precursor to and setting up of events to come. Action wise, not much happens in this one. However, many important issues are brought up and there is more character development than anything else. The relationship between Rick and his son Carl is especially interesting to me. Carl isn¿t a hardened killer, even though he has killed countless zombies. He is still emotionally affected by his first human murder, but he holds it together because it¿s needed for the survival of the group. Rick understands Carl¿s decision, but wishes he didn¿t have to do things like this. He, after all, is still a child.The other big event of this narrative is the invitation to live in the safe haven. Rick is immediately on his guard and thinks it¿s too good to be true. The others start out as accepting, but grow to be more and more suspicious. This situation is the most like life before the zombie apocalypse than anything they have experienced since. Will the survivors ever be able to integrate into a society such as this one? They have been fighting for survival for about two years. Many of their problems have come from humans, such as the cannibals from the last one and the sadistic governor. Events like these take a toll on them and make them into different people.Although not the most action packed book in the series, I enjoyed the emotional and psychological implications presented. Something big is going to be happening in the next book and I can¿t wait to read it!

Life Among Them is issues 67-72 of the popular The Walking Dead comics! After Rick and crew discover that a man named Aaron has been following them but only for to lead them to a new compound called Alexandria. Once there, they are a little skeptical of everything especially with what just went down with the Governor and Woodbury. As they get job assignments, Rick comes up with a plan to help his group out in a big way without nobody else knowing about it. I found this volume to be kinda low key with them finding Alexandria and everything that comes with it but you know that something big is about to happen especially with Rick and Glen doing something that will hopefully save them. As I read this book, I found many similar situations as the show but on a whole new level. I do have to admit, I already know what happens in the next issue but for what's it's worth, it was a great build up to what is to come for everyone in Alexandria. Thank You to Robert Kirkman for keeping the show as nearly the same as the comics to make everything seem more real!! I borrowed this book from my local Public Library.

If you love the television show, "The walking dead", then you'll love the comic book. Comic books take the reader in to the mind of the character, and these comic books take the reader further in to the daily lives and social interaction of each character. I've only met one person who hates these comics, but reading is not his forte anyway. Whether you're a comic book virgin or if you're too embarrassed to read a comic book out in public, you will love this book.

For anyone who likes a story about zombies, these books are the way to go; the graphic novel/comic book style of the story arc has amazing art and good story writing; the characters seem like real people (sometimes making questionable decisions) desiring love and safety, and like everyone, when they achieve those things they let their guard down. Once I started on book one, I couldn't put it down, suddenly I had bouth all 12, and then I had completed the first 12 within about two weeks.
