The Walking Dead, Vol. 14: No Way Out
by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard (Illustrator), Cliff Rathburn (Illustrator)
Still in Alexandria, the one with The Herd. And Winter Is Coming!
The last volume with our motley crew settling into life in Alexandria was pretty meh for me. I could not work up any real interest in the storyline of that volume.
In this and the previous one I occasionally had a hard time recognizing Rick. Sometimes he seemed to look different on every page. Or, in some cases, it was someone different and I just didn‘t get it.
Well, Vol. 14 has a lot more suspense and action than Vol. 13, simply because of the added danger of the herd surrounding Alexandria.
The tension just ramps up and up and up. In the last third something shocking happens and the action really explodes. Holy crayola! Unputdownable! Nail-biting! I was screaming inside throughout the whole thing! Flipping heck.
Hulk Smash! Belief in humanity restored. There is hope! Well, in fiction anyway. What a ride. Some great two-page spreads! All the stars!
My favourite character in this: Abraham
Most annoying character: Morgan
Wow! Onwards to Vol. 15…
