The Walking Dead, Vol. 16: A Larger World by Robert Kirkman

A Larger World by Robert Kirkman
2012, Image Comics
Series: Book 16 of The Walking Dead


Synopsis: Rick discovers that there are communities of survivors nearby, and begins to explore a larger world.

The Good: Jesus is interesting. Yeah, that's all I have in the good column.

The Bad: While obviously the lead up into something far more interesting, A Larger World is slow and low on action. It's not story driven enough to make up for the lack of excitement. It's set up and nothing more. And it seems to be the setup for the same situation we've seen play out with Rick and the group often. Start believing they can settle down safely, then comes evil guy to muck it all up, big showdown that leads to deaths, safety compromised and have to start over.
