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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Always having to live on the edge? Always in fear? What would that turn you into, assuming you could survive?
"The Walking Dead Vol 2: Miles Behind Us" is the next collection of comics in Robert Kirkman's ambitious saga of a world gone mad, gone dead, gone insane---and struggling to come back to life.
The story arc that ended in the final, wickedly nasty frame of Volume 1---Shane's lust, madness, betrayal and death---is capped off in the first few pages of Volume 2, with Lori Grimes paying respects---and hatred---to a man who got her out of Kentucky, got her and her son to the outskirts of undead Atlanta intact, and then---to her lights---betrayed her. And came close to killing her husband, trooper Rick Grimes.
Monsters, indeed. And not all of them eat flesh.
The old gang---the survivors anyway, including de facto leader Rick Grimes, his wife Lori, his son Carl, and the rest of the troop---have moved on, first to the Wiltshire Estates, 20 miles south of the dead Atlanta, a luxury subdivision buried by snow, haunted by a few zombies---but defensible.
Or so they think.
Kirkman's story, and his characters, are just as compelling: we add to the simmer and spice of the pot by throwing in former NFL quarterback Tyreese and his "family", and Kirkman lunges into Poe territory by introducing gentleman farmer Herschel and his clan. Farmer Herschel represents respite, sanctuary, nobility, and hope---for a time---but that story arc begs the question, "what's in the Barn". That question gets answered, far too soon.
