Volume six of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman's thrilling, terrifying zombie comic, has just come out. I bought my copy this morning at The Secret Headquarters, then sat down for lunch and didn't get up again until I'd read the last page.
The Walking Dead is the story of a band of survivors after a zombie plague, led by an ex-cop whose wife and son are with him. In Volume 5, some of the characters had been captured by a savage band of survivors who pit-fought the zombies — and in volume six, they take their revenge. This is some of the most gruesome comic stuff I've ever read, so much so that I had to look away.
I can't wait for the next collection to come out — this is great stuff.
