"What we become" continues to follow Rick as he and Abraham's group make their way north to Washington D.C. In the first couple pages we see that Rick is really beginning to crack from the traumatic events that took place in Vol.8. He doesn't sleep and he talks to his dead wife on a disconnected phone that he found in a abandoned house, but Rick isn't the only one. Feelings of unrest and suicide begin to fester in the group and an encounter between Rick and Abraham have them at each others throats. As the group takes up camp at a gas station Rick realizes that they are only a days drive from this hometown and he still has the keys to the police armory. Rick, his son Carl and Abraham set out to retrieve the supplies and we a glimpse into Abraham's past. During their talk, the two men find reconciliation and a common thread, both men have been changed by tragedy and they wonder if the terrible things they've seen and done have made them less human, but Rick has no regrets "We do what we have to do, It doesn't matter if we can live with ourselves as long as we LIVE". "What we become" is a very entertaining read. The survivors are on a intriguing quest but you begin to wonder if they can hold together long enough to see it to its end. Rick, whether he means well or not seems to be the catalyst for the group's descent. After breaking camp Andrea tells a brooding Dale that it's name to move on. "fine" dale snaps, "I'm anxious to see the NEXT way he's going to endanger us". As much as I hate to admit it, I am too.

Each volume of The Walking Dead tends to run in one of two separate veins. The ultra violent and the thoughtful. Volume 8 served as both a ending and a beginning of sorts, providing us with a violent shakeup that changed things forever for Rick and the rest of the survivors. Volumes 9 and this Volume, while providing us with some moderate zombie violence, mostly gives us the chance to dig deeper into the characters and what makes them tick. Rick and a character introduced in the previous volume, Abraham, both are coping with all the brutal and ugly things they have been forced to do just to survive. Things that in the eyes of family and friends may be unforgivable or at least something they cannot accept. We get to witness Rick in action when three men decide to assault him and his boy and what vicious things he is willing to do to protect what is left of his family. Though there is tension between him and Abraham, they share their stories and come to understand one another much better-they will do whatever it takes to survive. The world is an ugly place and all the innocence and beauty in people has pretty much died, leaving the ugly behind...an ugly that is brutally necessary.
Into this mix steps Morgan, Rick's old friend that was hiding out in their hometown. Its interesting to see how Morgan, who cannot bring himself to kill someone who has turned into a zombie that he cares about, is feared because perhaps he has gone insane with grief while Rick himself is starting to be feared because he has refused to be consumed by his grief but instead has lashed out at anything in the world that would threaten him.

Format: Paperback
Ah well, it had to happen – after the excitement of the Governor storyline and the new direction of the series in the last book, Volume 10 of The Walking Dead sees the plot slowing down, almost as if they’re taking stock of everything that’s happened, and it’s a bit of a snoozer. It also weirdly feels like a throwback volume to the kind we got pre-Governor, ie. the bad old days.

Rick and the handful of survivors from the original group, including his son Carl, have joined some new characters led by Abraham, a former US Military serviceman, as they take a scientist, who knows what caused the zombie apocalypse, to Washington, D.C., to uh... fix/explain things? Oh, I cannot wait to see that! Bunch of guys in lab coats sat round, laughing uncomfortably in between blasts from their inhalers. “Yeah, haha, oooooooooh, that whole zombie apocalypse… thing? That was a whacky day in the office! My bad. SOS! Pretty cool to see though, right? I mean, who knew we’d all be living in a George Romero movie if someone dropped that beaker of green liquid! Wait, what’re you doing with that baseball bat…!”.

Rick realises they’re near his old hometown so he and Carl, along with Abraham, go on a gun-gathering mission to Rick’s old police station lockup, while the others sit tight for their return. That’s the plot of this volume - pretty basic, right?

Kirkman uses this book to draw parallels with the first volume and show how much Rick’s changed in the year since he woke up in the abandoned hospital, while also touching base with how the first person Rick met when he left the hospital, Morgan, has fared.

Format: Paperback
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.

"Chapter Ten: What We Become" chronicles the caravan on the initial stages of the journey to Washington DC. While I'm not crazy about the new characters leading this expedition, Abraham does provide an alpha male challenge to Rick. Highlights of this chapter include an eerie dream sequence, a moment of weakness for Maggie, and an act of brutality that bind Rick, Carl and Abraham in a discussion about the animalistic nature of this new world. But perhaps the scariest thing in the series thus far is the "herd" of zombies that is introduced proving, once again, that the calm is always followed by the storm in "The Walking Dead." The sequence leaves our heroes on the run once more. Good, but not great--since the loss at the prison, the group still has some rebounding to do.
