THE WALKING DEAD, Vol. 8: Made to Suffer by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard

The series that created the zombie movement reaches its most pivotal, series-altering arc yet They thought they were safe in the prison. They were wrong. A force far more deadly than the walking dead is at their door and when the dust settles, their rank will be reduced by more than half. No one is safe.


This is the eighth volume of The Walking Dead and includes issues 43-48. And holy shit, everything really goes to hell in this one! OMG. I can't believe some of the stuff that happens.

So, the beginning takes us back to the asshole that we've gotten to know as the Governor. Did I mention that I despise this character? Well, I do. With a passion. Anyway, he somehow makes it out alive after Michonne's torture and becomes determined to find out where the jail is. He lies to his people, convinces them this other group of survivors are a threat, and attacks them.

It's a butral confrontation, but Rick and his group aren't going to take it lying down. Nope, they fight back. Still, we manage to lose a chunk of the group in this one--Tyreese, Axel, Patricia, Billy, Hershel... and the most shocking of all, Lori and the baby. OMG. It's all very graphic. Very shocking, and sad.

Wow, I needed to take a deep breath after this volume. But I am very glad that the asshole Governor ends up dying at the hands of his own people. That was justice.
