Strolling around Barnes and Noble, checking out the comic books I came across The Walking. It was right next to The Walking Dead comics so at first, I thought it was one of them. I picked it up and started checking it out. I never knew that this comic existed. I had to pick it up and give it a review.
Everyone who has been murdered is coming back to life to avenge their deaths. Four police officers try to get to the bottom of this, but what they find, ends up being more than what meats the eye.
Right off the bat I want to say that this is probably the funniest comic I have ever read. When the dialogue between two detectives starts, it quickly begins to develop the characters personality. One of them is a big time joker, while the other is more serious. There’s something wrong with you if this comic doesn’t have you laughing within the first few pages.
The storyline was ok. Not really the traditional zombie, but the monsters are living dead creatures. They are not flesh eaters and headshots do not kill them. I can only assume because with all the action, none of the characters went for a headshot. The monsters were referenced as zombies by some of the characters.
There were a few dry and boring spots throughout the story, but not too many. It was one of those books that I put down for a few days and didn’t feel any excitement picking it back up.
The illustrations were wonderful to look at. The zombies looked great, but there weren’t to many of them. There were a few nude scenes and was packed with a lot of adult content. If there are children present, it might be best to keep this one away from them.
I will have to give The Walking, 4 Undead Heads out of 5.
