The walking Dead Volume 9 Here We Remain: Written by Robert Kirkman

I am a glutton for punishment, or so it seems since I was crying after reading the last Walking Dead book created by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn. This book follows those two special survivors from the last book and we see just how dark a child can become when innocence is lost, and the world proves just how cruel it truly can be. It is just depressing with how you know, you just KNOW you are not safe in the world being consumed by the dead. It is even worse for the parent who knows they cannot keep their child and loved ones safe too.. this comic is just so good! The art is just stunning and does a great job of still instilling fear every time there is a shadow or unknown area the characters walk into. It is like when you're a little kid and you work up the nerve to finally look under the bed to make sure nothing is there and as you breath a sigh of relief is when your brother or sister jumps up to scare the hell out of you. Or, if any of you have seen the movie Ernest Scared Stupid or Poltergeist 1 then you can also know the feeling of pure fear mixed with adrenaline. Everyone it seems is going a bit crazy now and finding it harder to cope with reality, but each character is dealing with their losses in their own way better to deal with it then just give up like so many others have. This comic though brings something very new to the table and something very old... is that hope our characters may be feeling after so much bad things have happened to them? The dead it seems are a big threat again and of course strangers. I don't know if there is any hope, but I am so ready to pick up volume 10.
