(140) The Walking Dead Volume:2 Miles Behind Us by Robert Kirkman

The Walking Dead Volume 2:
Miles Behind Us

Publication Date: December 20, 2006
Pages: 136

I don't think that I was as excited for a show to start this Fall as I was for The Walking Dead. The season premiere lived up to my every expectation and it seemed like the fastest hour of my life.  To extend the excitement I decided it was high time for me to read the next installment of the graphic novels. 

Miles Behind Us picks up at the tale end of winter. Rick and the group are all traveling in Dale's RV when they stumble across a gated community.  They think that they have hit the jackpot with this community, believing that it will be free of Walkers and they will be able to settle down and make new homes. Of course nothing could be that easy and soon they are back on the road and are in even more trouble when Carl gets shot.  Will the old man on the farm let them stay or will they be forced to go back on the road?

The beauty about reading the Graphic Novels and watching the show are that they are similar, yet so different.  Since we are on season three of the show I thought that I would know what to expect in the graphic novel, but I was wrong.  There are a lot of similarities, like Carl getting shot.  But there are a lot of differences, too.  Enough to keep me guessing and enjoying the novels, which is what I love. 

Bottom line, I don't know why I (and ten million other people) am so fascinated by The Walking Dead, but I am, and not just the television show.  There is a certain amount of emotion conveyed in the artwork of the graphic novel that you just don't get from a regular novel.  If you are a fan of the show, but have not read the books, then WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?? You must run out and start reading the graphic novels immediately! 


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
