Most volumes of Walking Dead have a fair amount of action, and this one is no exception. But in terms of story, this is definitely a pause of sorts. It serves partly as an epilog to what has come before, and equally as a prolog to a major new direction in the series as it moves forward. After the nonstop tension of the past few volumes, this is a welcome break that serves the reader well. We meet some interesting new characters and the survivors undertake a major new mission that will open the book up to a number of new possibilities in future volumes.
Overall, this is an easy book to recommend to readers who have followed the series up to this point. The story moves along at a good pace and there are some great moments featuring Carl and Rick. As much as I've enjoyed where Walking Dead has gone in past chapters, I'm equally curious to read more about what's still to come.
Rick and Carl are struggling to move on after the massacre at the prison and Michonne is off wandering by herself, killing the remnants of the zombies left at the prison.
Rick and Carl both get to face their fears and try to cope with the loss of everyone they knew, not knowing if anyone at all survived but knowing that Lori is gone from them. Each of them faces this in their own way and Robert Kirkman's compelling storyline reminds me that while the zombie action and full on mayhem of Volume 8 was part of the reason I really enjoy this series the smaller, quieter moments of everyone trying to retain some sense of humanity also make this series great.
The story leads us to some new people who perhaps are going to inject a spark of hope into the small group that Rick, Carl, and Michonne come together with, but that remains to be seen. Given the ups and downs that Rick has faced I can't say that I blame him when he tells Carl that he should trust no one and never, ever let his guard down.
The saga continues with wonderful storytelling and keeps me wondering what is next for Rick and the few survivors of prison as they hit the road once again.
Vol. 9: Here We Remain, picks up shortly after the end of Made to Suffer and collects issues 49-54 of the regular monthly series.
Rick and Carl have escaped the massacre at the prison. Michonne, who had gone out with Tyrese to keep tabs on The Governor and his men, has come back just long enough to see who, if anyone, has survived. This book is the story of their journey away from the prison and toward, hopefully, safety as Rick and Carl spend a couple of weeks living off of whatever they can scavenge. Along the way, they meet back up with Michonne, then, as they try to search for Hershell’s old farm, which they had left several months earlier, run across a handful of other survivors. They all try to decide whether or not to stay on the farm and try to be safe, or accompany a new set of strangers, one of whom insists he’s got the answer to all their problems, and if he can just get to Washington D.C., he’s pretty sure they can turn all of this around and save the world.
Volume 9 focused almost exclusively on Rick, developing his character even further, but this time we see his downward spiral into madness as he begins to spend a lot of time on the phone with his dead wife, and once other characters are brought in, we’re still following Rick, and seeing how he’s dealing with the aftermath of what happened at the prison and the part he played in it.
Series creator Robert Kirkman is spending an awful lot of time on his main character here, and I’m assuming this is to help us further establish and identify with the “hero” of the story.Read more ›
