Book Description

Nov. 9 2010 Walking Dead (Book 7)
The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled: no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living. Lori's pregnancy has come to term, and the birth is near. After everything they've been through, nothing can prepare Rick and the other survivors for what they are about to experience. A major turning point in the series is reached. It is a reprint edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding horror series and volume... Oct. 3 2007
By Jacob - Published on Amazon.com
Robert Kirkman's THE WALKING DEAD stands as one of the greatest horror comic books (arguably THE greatest) ever printed. The theme has been done before (zombies taking over the world - a few humans fighting to survive in the post-apocalyptic world), but never has a horror comic served up such an epic tale of humanity, the undead as well as the good and evil, strength and weakness that lie within the (beating) hearts of the characters. Unlike George Romero's : NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, readers are treated to the long term reality of zombie infestation. The relationships that develop between the surviving humans (love, jealously, fear and hope) are not simple 2-dimensional designs - to the reader, these characters live and breathe, and we celebrate their struggle, and mourn every single passing. My highest of recommendations to all potential readers - you will not be disappointed with this amazing graphic novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect to feel warm and fuzzy Sept. 15 2011
By TW Brown, Author, Editor, and Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
I realize this is the review for Volume Seven of The Walking Dead series; however, can there be anything good coming in volume eight when the title of the seventh chapter is The Calm Before? Robert Kirkman takes an entire chapter to lull his readers into a bit of complacency. Perhaps he is trying to get his readers to experience the idea he is driving home in this volume: sit in safety long enough and you will forget how to protect yourself.

The lack of good times and warm moments seems all the more pronounced by the almost overwhelmingly good feelings provided here by things like a small wedding, and of course, the ultimate antithesis of death: birth. That's not to say there aren't some bad moments. Another chapter falls, one loses a leg. Kirkman has established his mythos by now, A bite like the one that claims 'Roger" in Dawn of the Dead is not a death sentence in Kirkman's world.

As has been the case throughout, the characters in this saga act in very real, very identifiable ways. The insecurities and uncertainties in all of us are manifested by the small band of survivors. Their beauty, and the power of this series comes from their `realness'. The Calm Before exposes the frailties more definitely and does an excellent job of setting the reader. It's the thrill of sitting in a dark movie theater, knowing something is going to jump out...then it does and you STILL jump. That is the last three pages of volume seven.

The last page is a return to the gut-wrenching, aggravating cliff hanger. This is the one that leaves you furious. Fortunately, those of you reading these reviews have the option of having chapter eight just a page away (if you own the hardcover compendium) or sitting beside you.

For those of you new to this series, I challenge you to just wait twenty-four hours. Savor the anguish of those inside the prison fence, living in their false security. Then...grab volume eight and quench your thirst for The Walking Dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent series Oct. 30 2007
By HH Wiechers - Published on Amazon.com
This serie is amazing, well written, well drawn. Perfect atmosphere, its easy to identify yourself with the main characters. When the gruesome thing happened to the main character in vol.6 i could not help myself getting mad at the guy who did it. That explains my 5-star rating. Perfect material for a rainy sunday-afternoon with a bottle of pepsi and potato-chips.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Promise of Hope; The Promise of Peace Aug. 24 2010
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
When I heard that AMC was going to produce a television series based on the zombie epic "The Walking Dead," I was both concerned and delighted. A bona fide classic in undead lore, "The Walking Dead" graphic novels are brutal and surprising--not really what I would picture for a basic cable TV show (the first season is slated for 6 episodes, we'll see if it goes beyond that). But AMC has produced terrific and prestigious shows like "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad," so I'm pretty stoked to see what they do with this. Add Frank Darabont of "Shawshank Redemption" fame as the creative force behind the show, and we just might have a winner! In anticipation, I've gone back through the volumes of "The Walking Dead" to discover again the many pleasures that this series has to offer.

"Chapter Seven: The Calm Before" is a relatively peaceful edition of "The Walking Dead" as the name might imply. A small band rounding up supplies faces down more of the "Governor's" men. Then the group, wary of being discovered by their newfound enemy, starts to become complacent when no sign is of attack comes over the next few weeks. We see normalcy start to return as Rick and Lori confront unpleasant aspects of their relationship, Lori gives birth, Maggie and Glenn consider a family, Michonne starts to thaw, the new "doctor" gets comfortable. But in this peace, one of the crew finally goes over the deep end with unpleasant consequences. Sometimes sweet, sometimes sorrowful--this edition sets up real hope and is really great in furthering the character development aspects of the story. This makes it an unexpectedly strong entry in the series! But all is shot with one heck of cliff hanger!

3.0 out of 5 stars Baby's Arriving! Aug. 24 2013
By Lynn Ellingwood - Published on Amazon.com
This episode is the calm before the storm. Lori has a baby, a character loses part of a leg but survives and the suicidal friend accomplishes her goal. Still there is calm and little sign that Woodbury will be coming after the group. Maybe the people are all dead or maybe they are concerned with other things. Who knows?
