Hi Guys, WalkerMaimer is here again to give my Review on The Walking Dead comics' Volume 01: "Days Gone Bye".
Here are some few things that all of you should keep in mind:

- Off-Topic is allowed

- Do not hesitate to express your thoughts, let it all out.
- Enjoy! =D
The Walking Dead is the mother of the TV Show, Games, Novels, Merchandise, and even this wiki. From the beginning I never thought that TWD was just a Television show, which was conceived by the trolling genius Robert Kirkman, but then I discovered that it has a Comics series to which everything sprang out and is still continuing the post-apocalyptic adventures and misadventures of Rick Grimes.
So Let's start WalkeMaimer's Review on the Comics Series starts now!.
The Comics started out real good. The first Volume is very interesting and emotional, You know, a cop woke up in a hospital alter a coma in a world full of cannibal freaks finds his family and witnesses his BFF's death......Classic!, what made the first volume interesting is that it quickly tackles the morality, current social issues, and the emergence of a man's Survival Instinct ( not the game ), and besides that, the drama it transmitted to the readers, an example would be in Issue 01, where Rick cries often, amy's death, and shane's death?.
The Characters, I can't talk about their development because it's too early, but the implications of a triple death in the group would surely make an impact.....I think.
It's good to see how a bunch of people are pulling themselves together to create a life despite the fact that it seems hopeless. I love the camp fire at night, the RV as a watch tower, and even laundry time. But the most memorable was with Morgan and Duane, I mean, though they appeared in the first issue, what I think about of them is that they are simple and their bond's aura is very interesting and warm, In my perspective of course.
I also love Carl shooting cans, a walker, and shane!, talk about development in gun handling.
Also, I worry about the affair of Lori and Shane, though I cannot blame both of them although Lori considered it as a mistake and Shane was killed I still look forward to whether Rick and Lori's marriage strengthen or weakens.....Speaking of shane, I like his sudden change of mood.
The Walkers (also known as zombies) are illustrated awesomely that it even makes you think that it's Jay Leno. These undeadies have potential on becoming the comics series main threat for the meantime. Speaking of walkers, I find that criminal that shot Rick and the one who bit Amy is somehow the same. Your take guys?.
My Criticism/s for this Volume:
- A bit fast paced
- Lori looks like a "Banshee" in her first appearance
- Surviving with a cart full of guns due to the pressuring threats of weather and Walkers.
- Since when Kentucky and Georgia took one Issue to travel?, talk about unblocked roads.
So far, the volume is great, a good story to start with, there was never a dull moment. So here is for the three kings and pioneers of the walking dead, We salute you!.
I am Closing this blog with unending gratitude in reading this for "Volume 01"'. Please do not hesitate to leave your comments down below, You have my assurance that it will be respected.
This is WalkerMaimer telling you to have a Great Day and Stay Cool.
