The Walking Dead, Vol. 4: The Heart’s Desire by Robert Kirkman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We are still in prison…
Finally Michonne has arrived on the scene…
And what a bitch she is!
The fight between Rick and Tyreese is quite something! Well done, how their emotions careen so far out of any reasonable frame of reference and they loose it so completely. What makes a murderer, is there such a thing as a justified murder? Is there even any such thing?
I like the black and white, but I am still mourning the artwork of the first volume. I am often underwhelmed by a lot of frames and the sketches in general. Every now and then there is something pretty nice that makes me wonder if the messy sketching is done on purpose.
A bit too much talking and text to plow through at times. Which I guess is what this is all about, zombies or not. Relationships, how they all interact with each other, what drives them, how they deal with the mess that is their life. The zombies are almost irrelevant background noise.
Very strong ending with a great speech and shocking, revelatory parting line. Five stars for this, despite my grievances regarding the artwork.

I feel the same about the artwork. I still prefer Tony Moore’s style. Adlard is fast and has a more gritty style but in some panels I can’t tell who the characters are and I have to look back at clothing clues to work it out. That never happened with Moore. Still, it is a great story.

True. Funnily enough I zapped past that scene with Rick and Daryl Fighting last night on TV…
