Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead Vol.2 - Miles Behind Us puts together issues 7 through 12 into one collection. The first six issues introduce the reader to the main character of Rick Grimes and his discovery of a world turned upside-down and inside-out as the legions of undead walk and prowl the streets, fields and by-ways. The rest of that first volume reunites Rick with his wife and son and a ragtag bunch of other survivors just looking for a safe place to stay. I loved how Kirkman used the backdrop on a world of the undead to tell a story of survival and how extreme situations can have surprising and lasting effects on those left behind.

In Miles Behind Us, Robert Kirkman's story has a new artist in Charlie Adlard. Adlard's style has a similar look to that of previous artist Tony Moore, but has more of a rough line finished look. Where Moore's pages and panels had a smoother and more cinematic feel to them, Adlard's actually fits the mood and feel of the story Kirkman is writing. I love Moore's work and the gory detail he put in the first issues, but Adlard's just seems to resonate abit more with the subject matter of survival and doing what it takes to survive. There's certain scenes in Miles Behind Us where its hard to tell the difference between the survivors and the zombies. I like this technique in how it shows that the zombies and the survivors may alot more in common after all in relation to the title of the story.

Kirkman introduces in this volume quite abit of new characters to the group Rick is leading as they leave the campground at the outskirts of Atlanta. They've lost three of their numbers in the previous volume.

Format: Paperback
Volume 2 of The Walking Dead collects together Issues 7 through 12 of the popular horror comic, which is arguably one of the very best ones out there. The group, reeling from Shane's breakdown and murder in the previous story arc (read Volume One: Days Gone Bye), accepts Rick as their leader. Knowing that staying on the outskirts of Atlanta is far too dangerous, they climb into Dale's RV and begin searching for someplace safe they can live. Along the way they meet new characters and plenty of zombies. This arc is action packed and a tad convoluted in the character department, but the reader may not want to get too attached to any one character. The Walking Dead remembers one of the most important rules of take-no-prisoners horror, that anyone can die at any moment. This comic has a wonderful sucker punch, author Robert Kirkman simply loves pulling the proverbial rug out from under the stereotypical feet of the reader. This is a great series, highest recommendation.

Format: Paperback
The first Walking Dead volume was a sensational debut that introduced us to a world overrun by a strange plague that turned the populace into zombies. A group of survivors in the rural Midwest headed to Atlanta thinking things would be better there only to find out that the city was festering grounds for the undead. The survivors set up a camp on the outside limits of the city, waiting their turn and figuring out that if they were close to a major city then at least once the National Guard came to rescue people they would be seen, being close to a major city and all.

In this second volume, the surviving group, resigned that the national guard might be a pipe dream and that no one is coming to save them, decide to leave the campsite near Atlanta and instead hit the road cross-country in their RV in hopes of finding normal civilization or at least a safe place to shelter and start a new life. About 20 miles outside of Atlanta, they stumble upon an abandoned gated community called the Wiltshire Estates. Thinking they have found safety, they clean up the houses and occupy them. But of course, Wiltshire Estates turns out to not be as abandoned as they thought and the place is crawling with Zombies. How will they survive this turn?

The first thing I noticed when opening this second volume is that while creator Robert Kirkman is always still behind the wheels as the writer, the illustrator has changed this second time around, with Tony Moore replaced by the tandem of Charlie Adlard & cliff Rathburn. While the new tandem have consciously drawn in a similar style than their predecessor for continuity, subtle differences can be noticed. Todd’s strength was painting unsettling images and sweeping full-page apocalyptic landscapes.

Format: Paperback
If you enjoyed the first volume of "The Walking Dead", there's no reason to not pick up this second collection. New artist Charlie Adlard's style is more scratchy and jagged than Tony Moore's smoother realistic take on things in volume one, but jagged and scratchy somehow nicely complements the story's frequent edgy jolts. This is the last handful of stories before the characters begin a long stay in an abandoned prison, so enjoy the variety of locales while you can. "The Walking Dead" isn't perfect: the bickering (between characters who have paired off into couples and between many characters in general) can get tiresome, and often there are too many dense speeches even when characters aren't bickering. But for all its faults (and they're relatively minor ones), "The Walking Dead" is nevertheless a bracing, dramatic piece of ongoing horror fiction that's a welcome antidote to usual comics fare.
