Only now I have laid my hands on Kirkman's TWD vol. 15 – quite some time after I watched seasons 1 and 2 of the joint Darabont / Kirkman extremely popular and gripping AMC show – which, I have to say, is very close to the book in spirit, but quite different in story line.
Just to mention a few plot differences – I keep on waiting for the show to saw off Rick's arm. Carl's been shot in the belly on the telly – in the book, it was a headshot he survived through. On TV, Dale died in the last season, devoured by a walker – and in the book, he also died, but slowly, first, bitten by a walker, and then cannibals ate his leg! Don't think Alabama housewives are prepared for that kind of gore in the zombiebox.
The surprise of this volume – and to put things in perspective, Lori has been dead for a while in the book – Rick makes out with Andrea – now that's the new twist of the melodrama the TV series lacks ))) TWD vol. 16 awaits to be read.
P.S. Whew, Sherlock, TWD vol. 16 was plain boring. Nothing to report.
