I haven’t been watching the HBO version of The Walking Dead, but I have read some of the comics before now. I really like the idea of them, being about the longterm survivors in a zombie apocalypse. When I spotted this volume at the library the other day I decided to just read it and catch up a bit.
What We Become is about guilt and the things these survivors have had to do and sacrifice to still be around. There are zombies and people pointing guns at each other. It’s fine, but I like the fact that these people are still trying to survive more compelling than reading their stories, you know? Maybe if I was reading each issue as it came out I’d be more invested in their struggles, but for now I’m fine without knowing all the details.
