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 starting 10/31/10 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 Six collects the following two chapters.

"Volume 11: Fear The Hunters" instantly became one of my favorites in the entire series! Just as the story seemed to be tapering down, this episode has Rick getting his mojo back after having been sullen and unsure since the prison riot. One of the most morally ambiguous chapters, we see the toll this new world has had on the camp's children--and it isn't pretty. Andrea and Dale, long in the periphery, step up into leading roles and the group discovers religion when they take in a priest with a shady past. But when our crew is hunted and then confronts another extremist group intent on eating them--yes, I said it--it's not something you're likely to forget. Drama, carnage, and moral consequence all play equal roles in this unforgettable edition!

"Volume 12: Life Among Them" gets the team back on the road to Washington D.C. But while their reason for going to D.C.

Tragedy and loss are the backbones of The Walking Dead, an ongoing comic book set in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. What creator and writer Robert Kirkman does wisely throughout the series is examine the social implications of life in the aftermath. What kinds of trials and tribulations would the survivors face, how would they grow and adapt to these challenges, and how would they cope with this new world order? When civilization is gone, what happens to the civilized man in a world without rules?

In examining these questions, Kirkman has often posited that the enemy isn't always the zombie. While they are an omnipresent threat, the real monsters lurking in the shadows, the horrors that should be feared, are often human.

Book 6 is divided into two chapters, "Fear the Hunters" and "Life Among Them," both of which were previously collected in paperback volumes. "Fear the Hunters" opens with the band of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, reeling from a tragedy that has claimed the life of two more members of their group. When a priest stumbles into their camp, tensions rise and their paranoia grows deeper when another friend goes missing and it becomes clear they are being tracked and hunted.

Throughout the series, Kirkman has run his characters ragged, putting them through one torturous scenario after another. They've survived violent zombie raids and insane armies of men. Characters are established, crafted with equal care and complexity, and then heartlessly murdered. No one is safe. Grimes and the survivors he has helped to protect have come to know and expect cruelty, and they know the living human monsters are far more dangerous than the undead.

The reactions to strangers are tempered with caution, fear, and distrust.

Great comic series, great books. This is the story about living dead, about zombies, about running from them and fighting with them, but much more about the people, about surviving, about caring for close ones and keeping emotions which make us human, about keeping sanity whn it's hardly possible and about developing of ourselves in time when the whole world is collapsing.
Robert Kirkman manages to keep the story very interesting through those books, to develop it even more, to build strong characters, and even to surprise us with some fierce events.
This book (the whole series) is somehow different from the TV show, some characters and happenings are different, so give it a chance even if you prefer the TV show.
I can't wait for the next book, book number 7. I didn't read regular comic books issues and I'm buying only those HC editions, so the further story is still unknown to me.

Format: Hardcover
The sixth volume in this series marks something of a turning point. Although Kirkman has consistently blended the horror of the "roamers" with the horrors of the remaining human survivors, this book seems to focus more on the latter. After escaping the requisite zombie threats during the first half of this volume, our band of heroes arrives at a seeming nirvana--a secure, walled community run by a former politician who has created something of a Stepford society. Needless to say, our protagonists have a difficult time adjusting, and the narrative hints that not all is as rosy as it seems. As usual, Kirkman has left us salivating for the next volume...
