The Walking Dead book 8 happens to be a strong standing book in a fantastical line up of this entire series. Not only is it a continuation of the Previous "No Way Out" storyline. But it takes time to truly focus on the fall out of Rick's new position and how people that have not been with him for an extended period of time feel about him and his group. Following into Chapter 16 "A Larger World" which puts a very good point into the book and truly set up a storyline that I fully expect to deliver in the next collected volume. Honestly the ending to this book really leaves you wanting and has possibly broken me down into getting a subscription to the monthly series instead of waiting for the Trade Hardcovers. It really just makes you want to know what is going to happen next. It's an excellent edition to add to me extensive collection of hardcovers, and it makes for an even more extensive and fulfilling read. You must buy this book.

What can I say about the Walking Dead that hasn't already been said? These books are the perfect way to read this series. Each hardcover has two of the trade paperback graphic novels inside, along with extras in the back of the book. I was collecting the Trade Paperbacks but volume 1 fell apart. That will NOT happen with these! The size is great...you see so much more with the large format, than you would with the single issues or the TPB's. The paper is better...thicker...and harder to tear. The covers are double tough and the sewn bindings will definitely stand the test of time AND the zombie apocalypse! I now own all 8 of these and will buy no other format (except of course the actual comic for my collection). I suggest everyone read these. Or come borrow mine

The eighth hardcover collection of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead focuses on the fallout of Rick's decision making the last time around, and as things usually go in the world of The Walking Dead, bad things are about to get very, very worse. Add to that the changes in some relationships between some long-standing and beloved characters, and Kirkman proves that he can continue to keep the proceedings and cast of characters interesting and fresh. That, and as usual, the ending of this collection promises that there are some very bad happenings about to...well, happen. If for some reason you haven't checked out The Walking Dead, there really isn't any excuse or reason why you don't start right now. It's one of the best series to ever come out of Image Comics ever, and undoubtedly the best horror comic to ever see the light of day for nearly a decade running.

In Book Eight of The Walking Dead we rejoin our heroes in the Alexandria Safe-Zone. That is, Book Eight starts the same place Book Seven did. That is not to say nothing has happened; much has. But the story is beginning to feel a bet stale. Thankfully, things begin to look much, much more interesting going forward.

Chapter 15 - We Find Ourselves
Chapter 16 - A Larger World

we have to thank the television series The Walking Dead for getting my son and I hooked on these comics - as well as the show itself! It started out with my son watching the show by himself and then he got me watching it so we're now anxiously awaiting the rest of this season to start (February). In the meantime he's rereading the Walking Dead series - and I mean ALL of them!

I bought him the latest hardcover edition for Christmas and he read through it in a matter of days - and for a kid who hates to read anything that's pretty impressive. Like all the Walking Dead hardcover books the material used is sturdy and well made with images on the front and back cover (we love that BTW).

One of our favorite things about reading the books and watching the shows is the differences between the two. There are similarities but glaring differences as well that really grab your attention - and there have been several times where my son says 'that doesn't happen in the book' or 'he/she's not supposed to die yet/like that" so for anybody who has a teen that hates to read but loves the Walking Dead tv show I say this book is well worth buying. Heck Cody was begging for it the minute he learned it had been released.

I love this series! My husband is really to thank for it. He's always liked everything to do with zombies and I was never really a fan. I remember grumbling everytime a new Resident evil game would come out and I would have to play with or watch him play it. But he had the first couple of books for a while and I decided to start reading them. I was blown away by the character development and just the actual storyline. It's not so much the zombies, it's about this group of people's will to survive and what they will do to keep each other safe. This particular volume was a Christmas present for my husband who has not actually gotten around to reading it, so I picked it up and continued on with th story. Just when you think the group has finally settled down and able to piece together some semblance of a normal life it all goes up in flames. I'm halfway through the book and can't wait to continue on and see where it leads. Kudos to Robert Kirkman on doing such a great job with fleshing these people out. If a zombie apocalypse was to come about I would definitely want some of these people watching my backside for me. I hope this story goes on for a good long while.

Spoiler Free Review! In Book 8 Kirkman continues to deliver in this terrifying story of "survival horror". More depth is added to the remaining original characters with the turn of every page. The places that they have been have all but prepared them for where they are headed in these two story arcs. There are some new characters that I cannot wait to see develop over time. As long as they keep me fed on this series, I will not have to hunt for brains.

The hardcover series are my favorite format not just because I prefer hardback books over paper, but due to them not being only one story arc like the paperbacks, and not too (physically) large like the omnibus and compendium editions. Wikipedia can break down each book and what they have to offer, but be warned: DO NOT READ THE PLOT!!! It is nothing but a spoiler filled, super detailed synopsis!!! Scroll past that for a chart of the book types.

The Walking Dead Book Eight picked up right where Book Seven left off, which of course was on a cliff hanger. To avoid spoilers I won't go into detail what the cliff hanger entailed since it involved a primary character.

I would say the best part of this collection involved a consistent look at Rick's change in leadership style and how he views outsiders. The ending of this collection looks like it will take the plot in a newer direction, along with Rick's new attitude of "safety by numbers" so I'm quite eager to see what the next volume has in-store.

Pros: Rick's leadership development.
Cons: If I have any, it's that the story could always use more zombies...
Bottom line: More "Empire Strikes Back" rather than "Return of the Jedi" - no sense of the end in sight, yet a solid piece of work.

Kirkman does a wonderful job of making the characters come to life. Once you pick up these books, you won't put them down. Although its a comic book, you get sucked into the story and start to pose the same questions that the characters do to each other. Its so much more than just zombies, its a story of human nature and how far anyone will go to survive. Once you've read enough of these books, you can start to see parallels in the TV show. I find myself telling all my friends how the comic and the show are different, but how similar they are too. Even if you don't like comic books, you'll love this series.

This series just keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to read the next in the series. I'm trying to pace myself because I want to make sure the next one is written and released before I get too far ahead :) As usual, the story is entertaining and the artwork is amazing. If you've read from the beginning, the changes in both Rick and Carl from the beginning of the series until now are so evident and heartrending. There is enough realism in this story and it's characters to keep it relevant without being so realistic that it loses what it's fans of come to love. Let's face it, we're here for the zombies!
