I bought compendium one and two for the Walking Dead comics. These things are huge. I haven't dived into them yet, but it'll be interesting to see how they differ from the show.

I honestly enjoy compendium 1 a lot, but in contains what I consider to be the best of the story. From there out I begin to lose interest. Currently I'm not even bothering except once every few months.

I got them both pretty cheap when TFAW did their Black Friday sale. Figured if I'm buying one, might as well buy both.

Always a good idea if they're affordable.

I just finished Episode 7 of Season 2 ("Pretty Much Dead Already"). That ending...

I don't even know what to think right now. I'm sure I will, but right now I don't even feel like continuing. That's like the worst thing that could've happened. Crying or Very sad

Good news! It gets much worse.

The show is not one for people who don't want to see horrible things, but unlike most TV shows where killing people is just a one note plot point the tragedies actually have an emotional effect on the characters that have lasting consequences.

I can't say there are too many moments where you feel good, although there are some, but if you can care about TV characters, these are ones that you will.

Indeed. I detest stories that shock/disturb for the sake of shocking/disturbing. That's not story-telling to me. These stories definitely aren't that and I do admire them on that level.

I posted my previous post minutes after finishing the episode, so those were my raw thoughts. I'm still not sure if I like it, but yeah, I can see this as a turning point for many characters and it will propel the story forward. But still: dang... Confused

I am going to continue though. The idea of modern day humanity reacting to a world without structures is compelling enough and the characters are interesting enough to make me want to keep watching.

*goes to watch next episode*

The most emotional mid-seson ending ever for sure.

But like DPW said, the show is not for people who don't want to see horrible things.

And by horrible things I mean that this is just another representation where people from now on become something else. Something less, something dark.
That even if they get rid of the psycho, there are plenty of psychos to get in line for the job. Psychopaths survive. Others are just the walking dead.

Few raemain sane. Alive. True. Zombies of a time past.

And on the next episode..................

Just so you know I actually really like this show and am fully engrossed by it. The Sophia thing hit me hard for whatever subjective reason, but it's been the exception to the rule. Otherwise, I'm along for this wild ride. Cool

You know I find it interesting that they went that route with Sophia's character because..

Season 2 was definitely my favorite season.

Rick is my favourite character by the way. I find his stubborn belief in decency heartbreaking. Dale might be my second favourite. He reminds me of my uncle. Daryl is surprisingly becoming one of my favourites as well. Shane is probably the most interesting character. Even though I hate his guts, I'm glad he's around to make the story interesting. Andrea is a pain though and easily my least favourite character.

Funny thing is that they are deviating significantly from the comics. In season 2 its only some, but by season 3 they are deviating quite a lot and season 4 is basically just drawing decent ideas.

Trust me, you'll like the comics. They're like if the show always worked.

My library has them, so I'll read them. I still don't want to jump ahead of the show to avoid spoilers, because I'm enjoying the suspense. Which issues cover which seasons? I'd look it up myself, but I've been obsessively avoiding The Walking Dead on the internet to avoid spoilers.

Well seasons 1-2 cover the first 12 issues (roughly 2 trade paperbacks) but season 3 and the first half of 4 cover the next 6 trade paperbacks so its hard to gauge. From here on out I think the show will be a whole new animal. Plus...well after issue 50 or so its not truly worth reading, they're out of ideas and running on show popularity now.

Hmm. That's the problem with comics and TV shows. They don't know when to quit. I was hoping the creators had some sort of ending in mind rather than just making it up as they go along.

I'll probably read the first two paperbacks after I'm finished with Season 2 and we'll see after that.
