Once upon a time I read Robert Kirkman’s first three graphic novel collections in his The Walking Dead series and I was well pleased. I collected additional volumes and put them away where they’d remain in good shape until the day came where I’d return to Rick Grimes’ zombie plagued world and continue reading. . . . only I didn’t.
Until this last weekend.
I finally broke out my collection and began reading them, starting from the beginning.
I’d forgotten about Morgan Jones and his son Duane, the first living people Rick met when he woke up.
I’d forgotten about the friction between Donna and Dale — her certainty that he was sleeping with both Amy and Andrea.
I’d forgotten the mistakes Rick made . . .
the snow covered signed that sealed the fate of one of their group . . .
Hershel’s conviction that bordered on madness . . .
Tyreese’s rage and Rick’s fall from grace . . .
After reading the first three books, I revised the summaries I wrote for them in anticipation of more summaries to come. They aren’t major revisions — a lot of cosmetic work but a little bit more editing, too. You can check them out by using the links below.
