Another great installment of ominous future world
am 30. Juli 2014
‘The Walking Dead, Vol. 21’ by Robert Kirkman is latest installment in zombie comic series which describe the dystopian environment ruled by undead which beside comic version infected the entire planet with excellent TV-series. Today released compilation consists of TWD issues from 121 to 126, representing the second part of ‘All Out War’ story and again all the imaginative and skillfully made illustrations are done by Charlie Adlard.
Given that I wrote reviews for several last installments, I should again start with the same statement - no matter how often the objections are repeated TWD’s pace dropped, this series still manages to keep its loyal audience who eagerly follows Rick and his people expecting to see their ending or maybe still hoping that there is a possibility to return world to the state as it was before the zombie outbreak.
On the other hand I agree that some TV seasons and comic issues are better than others, some even may seem as fillers, the authors running out of inspiration or simply reaping the fruits of previous labor repeating the same proven formula, but then always something suddenly happens which shows Kirkman still has something special, an inexhaustible arsenal of ideas and temptations through which he plans to take his characters.
For those few who maybe don’t know for TWD franchise or did not know TV-series is based on comics, the recommendations for primarily its reading certainly stands as the comics provide an additional aspect of imagination which TV-series lacks keeping readers in constant thrill – enjoying the adventures of survivors which are in greater danger from the other remaining people, than the zombies.
In the twenty-first installment war between the factions will be concluded - the Saviors on one side, opposite to the Kingdom, Hilltop and Alexandra Safe-Zone united on the second. The way in which the war will end would be great for some readers because it shows that the author does not start using the pattern, while others will probably blame the author for trying to artificially extend the series to the maximum. The tastes are not to be discussed, but I definitely belong to the first group.
Still no matter to which side you are considering yourself to be part of, do not expect big bang ending, but more reasonable outcome no matter how unexpected it may sound for a world in which the action is happening.
It must be emphasized still the same good thing can be said that, unlike some of the previous chapters, elements of additional character development, emotions and good character interaction can be again found – which remind us loyal fans of the series start, I don’t know how many years ago.
Therefore, TWD 21 is another great sequel for loyal fans for which many will again have only criticism; however, together with the rest of us will hardly wait for the new episodes of human survivors exciting adventures in an ominous prediction of future world.
