Von Sandra Miehlbradt am 12. Dezember 2014
Format: Taschenbuch
Die Gruppe um Rick hat es sich im Gefängnis gemütlich gemacht und beginnt sich langsam einzuleben. Als Rick einen Helikopter am Himmel bemerkt, der kurze Zeit später abstürzt, macht er sich mit Glenn und Michonne in Richtung Absturzstelle auf. Doch dort finden sie nichts außer ein Spuren anderer. Daraufhin machen sich die drei auf den Weg nach Woodbury, wo sie auf den Governor treffen, der ihnen alles andere als freundlich gesinnt ist.

Teil fünf der Walking-Dead-Reihe hat es in sich. Einer der großen Bösewichte im Walking-Dead-Universum wird eingeführt und das mit einem Knall. Anders als in der Serie geht es sofort zur Sache und Rick und Michonne verlieren dabei einiges. Aber auch der Governor kommt nicht ohne Schaden aus der Auseinandersetzung. Es geht wesentlich brutaler zu, als in der Serie – was man schon fast gar nicht glauben mag und ob das gut oder schlecht ist, ist noch einmal eine ganz andere Frage. Dennoch ist es eine würdiger Nachfolgeband der anderen Teile – vor allem für Fans der Zombiewelt.

Fazit: Ein Muss für Fans von Zombies und der Serie. Für Andere vermutlich nicht so geeignet.

I don't need to present this comics, the series from ABC has made it now very popular. But if you think you shouldn't check the comics because you watched the series, you are wrong! the story is actually quite different, and the rythm is also quite different between the 2, so that the reading of the comics is really not hindered or made less interesting because you watched the series before. I'm ordering the next comics right now!

Well worth the wait... 11. Oktober 2006
Von Erik Olson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Well, it took forever for Image to release "Walking Dead 5: The Best Defense." Thankfully, it was worth the wait.

Our heroes are still holed up in their prison fortress, and they're trying to make it homier by restoring electrical power. Glenn and Maggie have discovered some riot gear, which leads to the idea of siphoning gas for the generator from abandoned cars in the prison lot. However, during that operation Rick and Tyreese spot a helicopter overhead. It starts spewing smoke and goes down a couple of miles away, so Rick decides to mount a rescue mission. But Rick, Glenn, and Michonne discover that another group has beaten them to the crash site. They track them to the nearby town of Woodbury, where a leader called "The Governor" has created a stronghold with around forty souls. As Rick discovers too late, zombies can be the least of one's problems.

The characters continue to evolve nicely in this series. As with other apocalyptic stories such as "The Stand" and "Earth Abides," traditional mores are gradually being modified or replaced. For example, Carol wants marry both Rick and Lori. Woodbury is a place similar to the human stronghold in "Land of the Dead," where the familiar has become horribly warped. Speaking of George Romero, there's even a homage to the original "Dawn of the Dead," the tone of which fits with how he tends to end his zombie movies.

As usual with the zombie genre, the humans are worse than the living dead. Indeed, the Governor is one of the more terrifying psychopaths to grace the pages of a comic series. He's not a mustache-twirling, cackling villain. Instead, he's ruthless, calculating, and intelligent - an astute student of human nature who is the perfect nemesis for Rick. And his domestic situation is, shall we, say, quite dysfunctional (wait until you see his "home entertainment system.").

I was a bit disappointed with the previous collection, but Mr. Kirkman has regained his shambling stride with "The Best Defense." His goal with "The Walking Dead" was to pick up where most zombie movies end, and he has done that in spades. As usual, this edition ends with a cliffhanger that will keep you anxiously waiting for the next release. There will be a terrible reckoning between Rick and the Governor, and I'm hard-pressed to wait another six months to see it happen. Hopefully it won't be delayed like this one was. Definitely recommended.

The Best Defense brings new dangers to our small band of survivors. 27. Oktober 2006
Von A. Sandoc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The fifth volume in Image's The Walking Dead zombie series has finally been released after a very long delay. Does the story collected within this volume worth the long wait for fans of the books? I would say with a definitive yes that it is and was worth the wait. The Best Defense brings the story back to its horrific roots while keeping enough of the emotional travails of Rick and his band of survivors.

This graphic novel collects issues 25 through 30. Kirkman starts the story back up again in what seemed like just a few days since the shocking revelation of the last collection. There's still tension amongst the survivors living inside the prison. Relationships between characters are explored but not to the point that the story heads down into soap opera level. These are individuals who have been pushed close to the breaking point and clutching at whatever hope and love available to them even if it means forming some very unorthodox relationships. But don't that give you the impression that The Best Defense once again becomes too heavily-invested in telling a story about the survivors feelings.

This collection starts up a new story-arc where the survivors have been given a new impetus to venture out of the safe confines of their prison home. I don't want to spoil it for those who still haven't had a chance to read this brand new story-arc, but let's just say that something falls out of the sky that forces Rick, Glenn and Michonne to try out new riot police armor and gear to venture out into the wild. What they find is shocking to say the least. Survivors other than themselves are found, but their similarities end at that word. Where Rick and his group have tried to create a stable and ideal place to live at, despite the differences between some of the characters, this new band of survivors have continued to exist due to the harsh, if not sadistic rule of their self-appointed survivor: The Governor.

The Governor becomes the newest danger to Rick and his group. It's difficult to fully villify this character due to his ability to keep his own group alive. His actions easily makes him out to be the major villain in this story, but he also has kept his own people alive. Could Rick have turned out the same if he was pushed to the point of no return? It's hard to say, but the difference between Rick and The Governor doesn't seem far off.

The Best Defense marks a return to what makes The Walking Dead one of the best written comics today. Robert Kirkman seem to have gotten all the angst out of his system and has found the balance between the horror and the emotional aspect of the story once again. The Best Defense collection doesn't end easily due to a major cliffhanger hanging over every reader's head, but it's a cliffhanger that will certainly get its fans eagerly awaiting for the next collection to be collated and published.

The road goes ever onward 13. Oktober 2006
Von Patrick S. Dorazio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This ongoing saga continues and continues to impress. Rick and company have settled in at the prison and although there have been numerous traumas both related to the walking dead and to the interpersonal dynamics, the little community seems to be in fairly good shape nowadays.

We get our first taste of another survivor group that is not too far from where Rick and company are encamped. Unfortunately, this group is larger and is run by a sociopath that goes by the name of the Govenor. His people are pretty content in letting him run things by his own rules, which includes some pretty twisted forms of entertainment, as long as they are safe behind barricades, away from the living dead.

My main gripe with these volumes is how short they are, but alas, such is the challenge here-if you want the quality we have come to expect both in the writing and the graphics, it will take time to complete them. I was lucky enough to discover this series after the first four volumes had already been produced and read them all at once. Now I, like everyone else, have to patiently wait for Kirkman and crew to produce volume six and beyond.

This series certainly carries things beyond the initial shock and terror and settles into the question of surviving and actually living under such stressful circumstances. I feel that future volumes will continue to dive even deeper into the human interactions that make this series so compelling. We have another group of the living to come to grips with and that shall be what drives this series onward and upward for a long time to come.

Simply terrific storytelling. If you are lucky enough to just be discoverng this series, I cannot recommend it any more highly. I wait with great anticipation for future volumes to be produced.

Not his best 30. November 2006
Von Christopher Kampe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I love this series, and without a moment's reconsideration I will buy the next installment, but I feel that this is easily the weakest volume. As Kirkman said in the beginning, this is a novel about humanity and its reaction to an apocalypse. Volume 4 ended with the staggering revelation that humanity, as its surviving members think of it, has in essence ended. Everyone who lives is a murderer, and when they die they will inevitably rise as an abomination. Volume 5 takes this premise to a sick excess, depicting a tribe of men who've become something worse than the zombies. This is an interesting notion, but Kirkman's execution borders on ludicrous. "The Governor" and redneck murder-ring exists as a curious mash of Heart of Darkness and Thunderdome. The sociopath ringleader seems little more than evil for evil's sake--and while I did find his television collection amusing, it strikes me as a little ridiculous... and the whole zombie family thing was played out more creatively by Kirkman two volumes earlier. The most interesting thing about the series is the interaction between human beings and the relationships that develop between them. This second camp of survivors, with the exception of the Doctor and Nurse, are entirely homogenous--existing as a single organized yet insane cabal, with internally destructive tendencies, yet unquestioning and longstanding obedience to a nut job who doesn't even murder people for particularly interesting or logical reasons. Volume 5 presents a drastic departure from the chillingly realist tone of the previous volumes.

Unraveling at the Seams... 22. Juni 2007
Von J. D. Kammerer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I guess you could consider me a fan of "The Walking Dead" series by Robert Kirkman.

I was introduced to it a couple of months ago, while recovering from surgery, and I immediately found myself enjoying being immersed in a world populated by zombies and unlikely (and sometimes unlucky) heroes.

Up until this volume the characters stayed consistent and true to their nature, regardless of their appeal (or lack thereof in some cases) and, though there were times when those natures seemed to conflict with their established pattern, in this volume the characters begin to step outside of their normal established boundaries to such extent that they are almost unrecognizable to the reader.

A sad fact further demonstrated in this issue's artwork, which feels as rushed as the story does and, in some cases, appear darker than the storyline.

[Possible Spoiler Warning]

As an example, an established character, in this volume, requests a relationship beyond the ordinary one that we'd commonly experience. And, while this character's suggestion for such could plausibly occur, I felt that the character in question made such a strange request to the wrong individuals.

As the writer of the series, I would've have kept the character's previous feelings and relationship in mind prior to such a strange request, as well as, keeping in mind the reality of a person's (real or imagined) psyche and their inability to lose the person that they previously had a relationship with.

As such, rather than the character approaching two unlikely individuals in the hopes that such a strange request and proposal would be accepted, that character would, in fact, realistically propose the strange request to the person that they had been having a steady relationship with, only a couple of weeks prior, in order to try and keep the person that character has grown to depend on.

Because of situations like the one previously mentioned and others similar to it, as well as, the "superhero" elements that are beginning to surface, I found myself skimming this volume rather than voraciously devouring it like the ones prior to it. And though I will continue to read this series in hope that this is not a trend that will follow in future volumes, I find myself shuddering... not in fear of the walking dead, but from the possible loss of my hard earned dollar.
