Volume Ten. The story without end has made it to double figures. This is the second part of Rick’s story as we begin the “road movie” part of his life. We meet up with a character we have not seen since volume one of this epic. It is shocking to see what he has become but is he really so different from the characters we have been following? Probably not but we haven’t noticed the gradual deterioration, the little steps, that take people as they once were and twist them into something dark and almost unrecognisable. The contrast of seeing the before and after and not the journey is eye-opening.
Carl is still the star of the show as he gets a chance to enter the spotlight and we see how the world has affected him. We as readers have changed too. Gone is the safety and familiarity of the prison and we wish we could return to our happy family but we must press on with the other survivors. Thumbs are still Up!
