   Ultimately, this book is not about zombies
As I read the excellent volume 2 of The Walking Dead, I realized that this book is not about zombies. Monsters abound, but the story is about something deeper. It is about normal people and relationships and what desires truly lie in the heart of humankind. Story-wise, I thought that the most interesting question was What is going on with the zombies ''. The father of the farm thought there was a chance that one day the zombies might be cured by themselves. I loved the idea that someone was speaking up and saying that the zombies should not be killed because they are real people and the source of the problem was still unknown. This is a departure from most zombie stories in which the goal is to secure the zombies for your own survival.
   This volume picks up after the events of Volume 1 ...
After the death of Rick Grimes, Shane and the rest of the survivors leave Atlanta and travel many miles of hostile territory in search of a safer home. The group picks new members and loses old ones as they try to survive the brutal winter. The group eventually finds shelter in a small farm, though it is discovered that Hershel Greene, the owner of the farm, and his family keep a dark secret.
   Refreshing take on the genre
The Walking Dead is a very mature story that takes a look at topics that are ignored by many of the other examples of Zombie survival fiction. It shows how emotion leads to action in ways that can shock the sense of stability in modern readers. It provides an interesting commentary on how thin the veneer of civilization is despite all attempts by characters to cling to it. It lets the reader experience the loss of structure and provokes thoughts of what I would do beyond the typical raid of the gun store, grocery store and head for a cabin in the woods mentality we've seen before. The entire series thus far has been top notch and a real example of how graphic novels can tackle stories that would take a 600-page novel to cover in detail.
   Thought experiment, Narrative or both?
As with many creative works, The Walking Dead allows us to question things. All the What ifs about our priorities, motivations, concerns, breaking points, etc... can be explored and pondered without violating any ethical constraints of human experiment, in the safety of our home in our favorite reading spot. On a practical note, the book does contain some violent images, implied sex and gratuitous profanity. Because of the black and white nature of the artwork, the more graphic images are less visceral than they would be if they were color.
   Must-have comic
I purchased the Walking Dead band wagon after the show became popular, so I hopped on this volume to catch up on missed issues. That said, I warn you if you want to order this book -- or likely any comic --through Amazon Prime. The comic was free to move within the box, so that by the time it arrived the book was bent and a side was ripped from banging into the other contents of the box. If you are a prime customer, I suggest purchasing this item by itself or only with other books, so that the item is less likely to be damaged in shipping.
   A somewhat different story...
... and on its own is good. Different characters add to Rick's band of survivors. The fans of the show should still read the comics.
   Five Stars
Great read! Different from the show, but really great and really well done illustration.
If you are a fan, read it great. First time reader of mine with the comic series.
   Bought this after being an avid watcher of The Walking ...
This was acquired after being an avid viewer of The Walking Dead on AMC. There are some different characters and plot twists, but reading was equally enjoyable for the TV show.
   Good Stuff
Most likely you will like it. I received the PDF version and I like the fact that you can zoom in on each pannel. I've nothing I can think of.
