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.

4 of 4 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!

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.

This story continiues to be unpredictable and unprecidented. I have not read many stories that were harder to put down. Each character introduced adds so much to the story. With each volume I read my anticipation for the next amplifies.

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.

Format: Hardcover
When I heard that AMC was going to produce a television series based on the zombie epic "The Walking Dead," I was both concerned and delighted. A bona fide classic in undead lore, "The Walking Dead" graphic novels are brutal and surprising--not really what I would picture for a basic cable TV show (the first season is slated for 6 episodes, we'll see if it goes beyond that). But AMC has produced terrific and prestigious shows like "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad," so I'm pretty stoked to see what they do with this. Add Frank Darabont of "Shawshank Redemption" fame as the creative force behind the show, and we just might have a winner! In anticipation, I've gone back through the volumes of "The Walking Dead" to discover again the many pleasures that this series has to offer. Book Four collects the following two chapters.

"Chapter Seven: The Calm Before" is a relatively peaceful edition of "The Walking Dead" as the name might imply. A small band rounding up supplies faces down more of the "Governor's" men. Then the group, wary of being discovered by their newfound enemy, starts to become complacent when no sign is of attack comes over the next few weeks. We see normalcy start to return as Rick and Lori confront unpleasant aspects of their relationship, Lori gives birth, Maggie and Glenn consider a family, Michonne starts to thaw, the new "doctor" gets comfortable. But in this peace, one of the crew finally goes over the deep end with unpleasant consequences. Sometimes sweet, sometimes sorrowful--this edition sets up real hope and is really great in furthering the character development aspects of the story. This makes it an unexpectedly strong entry in the series! But all is shot with one heck of cliff hanger!
