Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Collecting the "The Calm Before" and "Made to Suffer" storyarcs, this fourth hardcover volume of Robert Kirkman's ongoing apocalyptic zombie masterpiece The Walking Dead is by far the most compelling, and brutally devestating, part of the series yet. "The Calm Before" is just that, as Rick's wife Lori begins going into labor while the rest of the crew enjoy what time they have left, preparing themselves for the onslaught they know is coming. And it does in "Made to Suffer", as the mutilated, revenge driven Governor comes attacking in full force. This is where Kirkman really pulls no punches, as we witness characters who have been in these pages since the beginning of the series meet some shocking, and grisly, demises. Not to mention the surprisingly emotional impact that echoes throughout these pages, as the book comes to a close and a new direction is set. All in all, Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead continues to be a spectacular story of survival horror, and like the best zombie flicks before it, is worth going back to again and again.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By James R. Gilligan VINE VOICE on January 3, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This volume is a definite game-changer. Many of the plotlines that have been developing over the first three volumes come to a head in this fourth volume, and the concluding series of events here is pretty devastating. I'm pleasantly surprised at the authors' ability to create dynamic, three-dimensional characters that I've come to care about and like--and, sadly, I've come to learn that it's not wise to become too attached to any character in this series. Once again, the authors devised a compelling and tense plot that almost made me forget that there are zombies in this story! The villains are quite villainous and crafty, the heroes are admirable and flawed, and the emotions evoked are genuine and powerful. Very well done--and I'm immediately on to the fifth volume.

Format: Hardcover
I had to read the first two books (hardback) for an anthropology class in its relation to changing culture in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. And this book is perfect for highlighting not only that, but also the natural condition of the human heart when once simple everyday necessities become rare luxuries. Betrayal, murder, suicide, desperation, and more quickly become norms in the newly established societies of the remaining survivors. The most important theme, however, is that of unity as strangers unite and work together to combat the walking dead and re-establish as civilized society as possible. I had never read a comic novel before I was assigned this one in my college class, and I am lucky I was introduced to such a great first read! This is a highly addicting series though so be WARNED!

Wow, after reading the first 3 books of this wonderful series, I wasn't prepared for the carnage that erupted inside. An absolute must read for anyone who has read the first 3. If you haven't then get it now. This series isn't just about zombies, It's about the human condition and how people survive in a world with a destroyed society.

I've enjoyed the Walking Dead for a while now. I like the hardcovers because they look nice on a bookshelf, but I hate waiting for them to come out. I wish it included more cover art in the back as well, but that's something you have to take, I guess. The story keeps killing off the characters I really like, but replaces them with new characters that you can get into. In that respect, I guess it's closer to what you would expect in an actual zombie apocalypse. Great writing and great art. Hope this series goes on for many more years.

There are spoilers below in my review so please stop now if you don't want to know.

I'm a huge fan of the TV show The Walking Dead and when I discovered it was bases on a comic book series I had to get them and read them. Of the differences between the show and the comic I've really noticed, is there still is no Darrel. He's like one of my favorites on the show. Also Carol isn't the tough woman like on the show and Carl isn't the reserved adult behaving kid like on the show either. Hershel didn't lose his leg as in the show either and Dale is still alive and he's the one who lost the leg. Rick is taking a terrible beating in the comic. He's now lost a hand, thanks to the Governor, and he's gut shot in this book too. He's a tough cookie. I like Lori the least in both the show and the comic and she finally dies in this book. However, it's not during childbirth, she's shot and when she falls she smashes the newborn Judith. Sophia is also still alive. Dale and Andrea are in a relationship, she hasn't defected to Woodbury. Michonne is very different from the show as well. Things are done to her by the governor that are just evil. She gets her revenge on the Governor but I was disappointed she didn't kill him. Woodbury attacks the prison, like the show, and this is when Lori dies Also Michonne and Tyreese are taken captive. In the show it's Hershel who gets his head cut off by the governor; in the comic it's Tyreese. And the governor has a very disturbing relationship with his daughter. It's good she's a walker now, because he was molesting her. The governor in the show was just a loving father who couldn't let her go.

There are many differences from the show but it's still a very enjoyable story and read. If you like the Walking Dead TV series, you must read the books too.
