The Governor Part 2
on July 13, 2013
This is another in a series of collections that suggest Kirkman is in rinse and repeat mode on the Walking Dead. In this latest volume, Rick and his team must contend with the latest self appointed emperor who also happens to be a rotten human being in the form of "Negan." Similarly disturbed and depraved as The Governor himself, Negan humiliates Rick while displaying some odd tendencies and making some curious decisions where Carl is concerned. It's not that overall this collection is weak per se. It's rather that, much of what made the WD original is seeping away, with Kirkman relying on the same plots over and over. It's as if he won't give himself permission to think beyond a formula now. Which is unfortunate. By all means, buy this if you're a WD fan. Just don't expect to be blown away as you previously were 50 or so issues before.
