Important change for me – after very long deliberation and sixteen volumes on my shelf, I stepped over my collecting craze and bought #17 electronically for kindle (kindle for ipad, that is, of course). Cheaper, faster and the quality of scan was great. Amazon promised panel-by-panel view – but somehow they lied.
While vol. 16 was boring as hell, in vol. 17 (actually, numbers 97-102 of the actual serialized comic) the hardcore action returns. And given these bits were likely created in parallel with Walking Dead: The Game by Telltale Games (which is absolutely fabulous and beats both the comic book AND the TV series combined – something I couldn't have expected) – similar topics appear. Bandits taking 1/2 of the supplies – or killing all. Zombies are nearly out of the picture. As usual, people are worse and scarier. Looking forward to vol. 18 – or should I start buying original 103, 104 volumes etc?
