If I could ignore everything Kirkman is doing with his female characters, I would have a higher opinion of this volume. I just can't though. I keep reading the series, expecting him to get better at women, but it just isn't happening. ( )

And the Governor is here!

Wow this volume's subject matter is loads darker than the previous ones, the reader gets to see how dark some people can get during the zombie apocalypse. I was mega shocked by the rape and torture of Michonne and just how sick in the head the Governor is.. Stuff of nightmares. However shocking it is, it's more believable than some the lame soap opera that was going on in the last volume.

Carol is an absolute freak show. Glad to see Sophia is allowed to live in the comics. Carl is a lot more likeable as well. ( )

Agh I hate the Governor! I thought I hated him in the tv series, but little did I know AMC downplayed what a royal ass he is. More than that he's also a sociopath and really shouldn't be leading a town. Even his own people know that. Fuck! Considering the fact that his three captives are main characters I'm gonna hope that they all make it. I really love Glen and Maggie. Rick is too big of a character to die and the Governor already said he wants him alive. But Mishonne, I don't know. I really like her in the show, but she went down on Tyresse, while he was with Carol. Which thinking about it now is more his fault for not stoping her, but she had walked in on them, so she would have known. Oh well I'll just have to wait and see. ( )

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. ( )
