New story arc shuffling into view

The Walking Dead, Vol. 9: Here We Remain
by Robert Kirkman,  Charlie Adlard (Illustrator), Cliff Rathburn (Illustrator) 

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Rick and Carl managed to get away. Rick is not doing so well, dealing with his injury…

I don‘t like Carl, the little brat. Does anybody?

Toilet paper is a precious commodity. Sounds familiar. And canned goods.

Picking up the pieces from the catastrophe at the end of the last volume… looking for a safe place, looking for potential survivors… this feels very much like an in-between volume. And eventually, towards the end, we start the journey into a new story arc…

Does Michonne look a little different in this one?

Bottomline, this is a quieter offering. Ok, yes, there is some zombie-slashing and gore spraying. The usual, you know… I actually like the quieter, less frantic setting, the conversations, the introspection… nonetheless, I think I am somewhere around 3.5 stars, rounded up. It was ok, but it lacked the frenetic drive of the previous volumes.

P.S. I could have sworn that I posted this review last night. Has WordPress ever eaten one of your posts?
