Lucille is thirsty

The Walking Dead, Vol. 17: Something to Fear
by Robert KirkmanCharlie Adlard (Illustrator), Cliff Rathburn (Illustrator)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

So, finally, we meet Negan! Eep!

Well, ok, there is some build-up and shorter excursions and skirmishes, but eventually we make his unpleasant acquaintance…

And then the unmentionable thing happens. You know what I mean, if you have read this or watched the TV series. And it is explicit. Wow. I am actually a little shell-shocked. The Governor was a fluffy teddybear compared to Negan.

And despite of the horrible violence, this was a really good volume. Tight plot, great dialogue, good artwork. Excellent story telling.

I checked out of the TV series during Season 6, so I don‘t actually know how Rick and the others are going to deal with this situation. Looking forward to the next volume!
