In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.
Finishing this today.
I've been sick for 2 weeks with what was discovered in the ER Tuesday to be a kidney infection. Graphic novels are perfect for my fever brain at the moment so I'm really glad I'd just picked up this hold from the library. Today is day 3 of antibiotics and the fever and headache seem to have receded, so I'll hopefully be able to take my boy outside to play finally. I've been the non-dog-walking dead all week!! :(
Finally finished this giant of 1,086 pages! Soooo good! Can‘t wait to get into the second one which is patiently waiting for me to finish the other two books I started. Completely different then the show, it twists and turns and constantly left me with a “what?!!!??” Feeling.
This TWD wine makes me happy! The cork is a definite keeper, and the back of the bottle discusses the apocalypse then goes on to say "...In a matter of months, society has crumbled; there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable tv. Luckily, there is wine.' ?
#Comicthon - Possibly cheating here 😜 Taking a break to play episode 5 of Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. But as we all know, the entire Walking Dead universe is BASED ON a comic series 😉 They are good, read them if you haven't. These games are also really good. I would hardly even classify them as video games, they're more like interactive stories.
Woah. So a few things I noticed: the Governor is way more twisted and evil in the novel, though David Morrissey does a good job portraying him in the show, he is also lucky that all he lost in the show was an eye...because he lost much more in the novel. 😳 I still didn't like Lori. What moments from the novel that did make it to the show were almost scene for scene, and I really liked that. Great read!
This was a reread for me and the beginning was slow (as I knew all the characters already). The second half picked up and was very entertaining even though I knew what would happen. I probably won't read these comics for a third time ever, but I do recommend them to anyone who hasn't read them at all!
Nearly every time we watch The Walking Dead, my husband says, "I thought this show was about zombies; where are the zombies?" ? I then have to remind him that it's about the survivors more than the zombies, so it was fun to come across this page this evening where Rick is explaining that idea for me.
I started to read this because of the TV show and they were my first introduction to the comic/graphic novel world. It's an action packed story full of flawed characters that you end up loving anyways.
I haven't kept reading these and I really should, I miss this characters, specially Michonne.
Was pleasantly surprised what a treat this story was! I loved it and am really trying to wait to start the next compendium. Excellent characters, plots, ideas, and really liked the focus on humanity and its changes after the world essentially ends. Super violent, some parts of rough to read, but it is so rewarding and addictive. Cannot wait to start watching it soon.
A few rainy days in a row means afternoon coffee and comics. Am loving TWD, and Radar agrees.
Loving this so far, but man is it heavy! I weighed it this morning - just a hair under 5 pounds. Not reading in bed material at all!
Here you go, @Jinjer . This is the first page of the compendium and all of the artwork is pretty similar. Some different artists throughout though. This one has 8 volumes included (48 issues). I think each volume has 6 issues. Frankly, I'd rather read it by volume but this was what my local library branch had.
With four hours of sleep in two hour shifts, I feel like a zombie. Having bad caregiving times here. Had some alone time at Starbucks and now some afternoon coffee with a little Alan Bennett and zombies. Ahhh.
#rockinmay #zombie I am not one for zombies, but chances are, if there's a book about zombies, my husband @HotdogZanzabaar will love it. This is his bookcase. And I didn't even know he was on Litsy until a couple of days ago. Maybe someday he will actually post something. 😂
Working my way through these guys. It's like felling a tree. Also reading RELICS by Tim Lebbon (great) and LIFE by Keith Richards.
I'm not sure what has gotten into my husband. He is on book no. 2 of the year. And Genevieve is keeping him company. 😍
A very bookish Christmas to all Litsy people from our family in Singapura. Happy Jólabókaflóðið (Christmas Book Flood) with leche flan on the side.
Tonight's reading! I'm still trying to get over the massive slump I'm in...baby steps, I guess. The comics are way different from the show, which I was expecting, but one of the details I'm the most surprised by is the use of the word "zombie." I don't think that word has ever been used in the show! It's very odd to see the characters say it. :D
I only made it somewhere in the middle of season 2 with the show, but I was intrigued enough to read the comics. This is an interesting story with lots of action and thoughtful themes. I'll be reading more. Side note: Don't try to read the compendium in bed. It's a brick that is big and heavy! #comics
When you get to the very last page of the 1,000k+ comic compendium you are reading and find this. Really!? Yes, you can lift it up, but it is glued directly over the dialogue in these panels. Luckily, I had the duplicate compendium ILL sent me that has no due date sheet in it at all. Ha!! 😂 #comics #comicbooks #interlibraryloanproblems
The comic character is entirely different from the TV Carol, and this Carol wins in every way! I love Melissa McBride's depiction, the way Carol has transformed to fit in every scenario she finds herself in. I want her on my side, and I want to be her too.
I'm fairly new to reading graphic novels/comics and I must say I'm enjoying myself 😊 I can't wait to continue with this story. I'm a big fan of the show and it's fun to look for similarities and differences and it's just awesome 😊so good 😊seriously😊
