So bizarre!!! ( )

The gang starts to get comfortable and relaxed in their prison home. One day they see a helicopter crash and follow it to discover a nearby town, sheltered from the zombies and run by an evil man known only as The Governor. Also Carol weirdly keeps hitting on both Rick and Lori.

The graphic novel Governor is less scary than the TV one, I think. Mostly because the TV one takes longer to reveal his secrets. Either way, this was a really good one. ( )

Volume 5, The Best Defense is only slightly better IMO than the previous volume. Emotions are still running high, people are still stupid, and Michonne is still incredibly badass.

"I'm - I'm not crying for me. I'm crying for you. I think about all the things I'm going to do to you and it makes me cry. It scares me."

The graphics, stories & gore…who could ask for anything more (zombies that is). I sank into the series with zest, couldn’t wait for the TV series to go DVD…don’t watch TV. Now season three is making me so thirsty! Makes me want to pay a premium to get it on demand…SMILE* ( )
