So excited to get home from work and find this on the porch. Ripped open the package and started right in. It was a quick read, but I felt let down. Felt like it was 277 pages of Meh. The principal character Lilly had a well developed path and will be recognizable to comics readers....she has a prominent role in the Woodbury attack on the prison in the comics, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Readers of the comics will also recognize Martinez, Doc Stevens, Alice, Bob, and more. Still, I don't feel like I got my $16.49 worth. It felt like a "connect the dots" of Woodbury comic characters without the substance. Bob and Josh played pivotal roles in Lilly's character arc and were well developed. The underlying plot of regime change just felt rushed and I kept hoping the authors would expand on it. The characters of Doc Stevens and Alice would have benefited from more detail as well. That said, I enjoyed the book, but was left wanting. Has Kirkman set my expectations too high?
