    Out of the last few issues I thought this one was much better, so it gets 5 stars. I don't know how much more steam the Walking Dead has though. It's starting to become like the Fables comic book series which ended after dragging out a few issues. There was a character death in this co...

    Is Kirkman going for modern political commentary? I sure hope not. The story doesn't move much - again. And the direction if not the details is predictable - again. And the only twists or surprises that come any more on the big splash pages seem to be Human or Human violence. But I'll ...

    Once again our protagonists are learning about another society that has come about, and once again there's a looming fear that they could go to war. This time it's a society where everything looks perfect at first (we saw it in the last issue). In this issue, we see that they even have...

    I?m not sure how I feel about this volume. It covers a fairly lengthy period of time without making that entirely clear. Chess pieces are being moved again, but it feels different than other times. Different can be good or bad, and I think I just haven?t made up my mind on what I l...

    It's the comic that doesn't end...yes, it goes on and on my friend....;) The zombies are once again just a bit of an afterthought in this one, and the focus is much more on interpersonal conflicts within the survivors. I'm wondering if pushing the walkers to the backburner isn't an ...

    A good installment in the series, but to be honest, trying to keep track of who's alive on TV and not in the comics -- and vice versa -- makes my head spin. ...

    I can only really remember the last issue, which did have a good ending. I think the rest of the arc was fine? ...

    Though there's not much zombie action in this volume, there's human drama galore. Maybe it's my current interest in income inequality, but this one really grabbed me. You see, the Commonwealth's Governor believes in a rigid class structure with everyone occupying a station . . . the sa...

    Another volume in the continuing saga..... Recovering from one crazy ?other? group, just to meet a new one, crazy in a totally different way...? You would think I?d get tired of the us vs them in every permutation Kirkman can think up, but I still find myself reading the...

    The shitshow that is The Walking Dead staggers on for yet another volume in the aptly named, Volume 31: The Rotten Core. Who knew that the Commonwealth, an authoritarian group obsessed with hierarchy enforced through an overbearing police presence, would turn out to be gasp kinda evil ...

    4 Stars The more things change, the more they stay the same; the stakes are just much bigger. Everything is a slight, a diss. As I've said from the beginning, it is not about Zombies versus man; it's about man versus man. Even at the end of all things, we will eat our young. We ...

    I feel like the Commonwealth are the worst villains of the series so far. They're not evil or murdering people, or zombie worshipers. They're just as close to the horrible human civilization that we live in now as you can get, and it makes my blood boil just reading about them. I ca...

    What a shock. The Commonwealth ain't what its cracked up to be. In The Walking Dead, Vol. 31: The Rotten Core, Rick and some of his cohorts are seduced by the privileged and elitist way of life in the Commonwealth. ** Minor spoilers ahead ** By the time, Rick listens to hi...

    How tired are you of the never-ending formula that is The Walking Dead (read: Rick and company encounter a new community, community is not what it seems, our heroes are forced to take down said community, everything returns to normal until they meet another new community, lather, rinse...

    Absolutely nothing in this volume! This series have been going nowhere for a long time. After a while off I give the two last volume a shot to see what happen... I was disappointed. Going to take another time out, there isn't any other out yet anyway, but a big deception for me! ...

    This was a total bore. There were no new ideas. There was no forward movement for the story. At this point, it's just one more ring in the ever-expanding trunk of uninspired scenarios involving bad, different people in increasingly nicer environments. (view spoiler)[Dwight dies (hi...

    In the last volume we are introduced to the Commonwealth, a large settlement in Ohio that has rigid class structures but has managed to thrive. I thought it established a promising arc that could turn the series in a new direction, for now years out from the outbreak, how does civiliza...

    Seems like no matter what, when Rick Grimes gets involved, things fall apart! The post-apocalyptic adventures of The Walking Dead continue with the newest community, (view spoiler)[The Commonwealth (hide spoiler)] , that Rick and crew have come across. While seemingly an ideal n...

    Mmm... I am getting bored. One major surprise in this volume. But it feels like every volume is going to the same direction: another dispute, another way of living, another rule of power,... maybe it is time to kill off Rick and start a focus on Eugene curing zombies? Or Negans search ...

    The series enters an awkward adolescence as we go from just killing zombies or other people to talking about politics, social movements, and even public transit. Hell, there is a short sequence of courtroom drama! There are also a million characters on hand as Rick takes the new Big Ba...

    Kirkman still knows how to deliver a shock. He lulled me with this whole volume about how the Commonwealth is the absolute worst of our current consumer culture and how it's a police state, blah blah blah. Haven't we been here before? Then bam a sucker punch out of nowhere. Even when y...

    Touring the commonwealth. Showing the Commonwealth Alexandria and its allies. Like the Governor's town, the Commonwealth is too peaceful. There's something sinister behind the smiles. But, there's Mr.T and the A-Team so it can't be all bad. Unlike the tv series though, Heath is still a...

    -- read as single issues #181 - #186 -- I feel critical of this comic these days. And I honestly still don't know if it's because it actually deserves criticism or if I'm just getting a little burnt out on it. Part of me feels like my enjoyment of The Walking Dead as a whole would i...

    Another volume, another great collection of?The Walking Dead? issues. Really, at this point, it?s starting to feel a little redundant, constantly singing this series? praises?but then again, that?s something that shouldn?t be under appreciated: the fact that we?re 186 i...

    What has a hazlenut in every bite? Sorry I digress. Need a Negan fix, what's this Commonwealth baloney? Princess.. OK.. who do you think she'll hook up with? . The world just up and turned bigger in the previous volume. We get to see Rick's communities from the perspective a of a cit...

    It is amazing how rock solid this comic book series is. After so many issues, it still amazes me how Kirkman handles the characters and situations they have to deal with, while Adlard keeps being the best artist there is for this series (assisted by Cliff Rathburn and Stefano Gaudi...

    Well as I said, with TWD there is a black cloud on every silver lining. And with Commonwealth Kirkman didn't let us wait long. The drama is boiling, there are first unknown and well-known casualties. To the quality - I feared a bit because of one guy here on GR wouldn't stop ranting si...

    Kirkman just know how to finish a mediocre arc with a BANG! (pun intended) and make you want more. Well, another one bites the dust and I will definately miss this charatcer but I guess that?s what TWD is about... ...

    This volume picks up exactly where the last left off, and to the most part it is very much following the same thread. That may sound like a bad thing, but actually I appreciate Kirkman taking his time to slowly build towards something, instead of the usually brutal sudden violence ...
