Walking Dead Finale Preview & Review of New TPB Volume!

Happy Sunday, gang! If you're anything like me, you are waiting with bated breath for tonight's finale of season one of The Walking Dead! Actually, I have to wait until Monday night, 'cause my wife likes to watch it, but cannot retain consciousness long enough to accomodate it's 10PM air time. So therefore, she makes me record it and wait to watch it with her Monday night :-( SO NO SPOILERS!!! And if you haven't heard; since it is the highest rated original program in AMC history, it will indeed be renewed for a second season. No word on when season 2 will premiere, but we'd better not have to wait until next Halloween - that's all I gots to say about that!

Now on to the newest in the source material - I picked up Volume 13; "Too Far Gone" Friday afternoon at Waldenbooks. It picks up with our band of survivors settling in to their cozy new digs with their new friends who are trying to get back to the life they all once knew by creating a new suburbian utopia surrounded by sturdy walls. But is Rick too far jaded by numerous betrayals and attacks and death to ever trust anyone again? Will he eventually let his guard down and enjoy his newfound security? Will he try to overthrow the current community leaders and take over the small town for him and the others?

I won't give anything away, but it's a non-stop rollercoaster ride as usual! Even when nothing is happening, Kirkman has a way of conveying a sense of underlying tension and paranoia, that you are still at the edge of your seat, just waiting for the tranqulic sense of security to be shattered in an instant! As usual, I read through it so quickly, it left me longing for more!
