Anyone else read them? I want to discuss them, but I don't want to talk about them in the TV show thread since there's enough similarities that the events of the comics could end up being spoilers to the show, but enough differences that they should be separate, anyway.

I just finished issue 88 the other day. Need to find 89-93 online and I'll be all caught up. If anyone actually is keeping up, I just got to where The people in the town they're currently in are starting to revolt and try to get rid of Rick and his group. Or maybe just one guy, really. The cliffhanger in the last issue I read was someone trying to convince other people that Rick is basically ruining the town.

Also, Carl recently got shot again....This time in the face!

I read them for awhile but I grew tired of the melodrama after a while.

Zombie stuff has to either be concise, or wacky if it wants to keep my attention for a long time

Can't remember how far I got

I can see that. It's not an easy series to stick with. I think the hardest part with sticking with it is knowing that no one is safe, and your favorite characters will probably die soon. Did you get through the whole prison storyline, with The Governer and the town of Woodbury? Holy fuck that was a complete massacre.

I'm still spoilering things incase people pick it up, or someone clicks here and reads things that may happen somewhere down the line in the show.

hey! hey pat! post here about comics! so you read issue 57? I looked it up at http://walkingdead.wikia.com/ and saw that its the issue where bandits try to rape Carl. I personally would love to see the first or second episode of season 4 being Carl thinking Rick is dead and he's all alone now. Except by then Chandler Riggs will be like 14 so it'll be a little less interesting.

yeah issue 57 Carl nearly getting butt sexed but Rick fucking snaps and kills nearly all of them (Abraham did kill one of them). I think that's the most brutal thing in the comic so far aside from Michonne getting revenge on The Govener. I agree season four should start after The Prison gets over run season three should end with Carl and Rick by themselves in the the house with Zombies surrounding them, or at least those three like in the comics then season four picks up from there. It would suck to have that cliff hanger but at the same time I think it'd be fitting for the comics, but as we've seen they're not going by the source material too much, more like a guideline. I doubt they're gonna show Carl almost getting it in the butt but I hope they show Rick snapping like that in the future after all the shit in season three...

I was hoping Axel survived a bit longer, It would've been interesting to have a jailbird running around with the crew, and to have him grow as a character, but well... he got shot like a whiteboy in the head so I guess that's never gonna happen hahaha. I'm on issue 62 and feel like plowing through the rest right now

just finished book 3 which takes me into the Episode 36 range as I believe the hardbacks go 12 comics each.

hahaha just finished that one last night... That was pretty funny but I still don't like the guy with the mullet... He doesn't seem like he knows what he's doing, something's off (trying my best not to wiki him)

Yeah him, I just read the next one.... hahaha my gut was right, I wonder how long before someone kills Eugene for leading everyone on

You know what was also an awesome part in the comics?

When Tyrese cleared the entire gym area of zombies with nothing but a mother fucking hammer, I seriously thought that guy was dead

I really hope they introduce that character just so that can happen. Like make it a cliffhanger between episodes. Or just let T-dog do it, since I won't be surprised if in order to give the character meaning, they just put him in Tyrese's role. But yeah. That was pretty fucking badass. Too bad he gets his head hacked the fuck off. With Michonne's sword no less.

So I just finished Hardcover Book 4, and again going on the assumption these are 12 issues per book I just finished issue 48. Needless to say for the first time ever reading a comic I feel legit sick, shocked, and disgusted by actions of a character.

Lori? Really? Fucker murdered an infant. Cold fucking blood.

I am also ashamed at how long I've had these hardcovers and how long I put off reading through them straight.

If you're just at the point where the prison is gone, Rick and Carl got separated from the other survivors, and half the cast just got wiped out at once then yes, that was issue 48. That's where the first compendium ends.

yep, right there. So it is 12 issues per hardback. I knew the compendium ended around there. But seriously....fuck man..........fuck.

and Carl getting shot in the mother fucking FACE... yes that is part of the No Way Out arc of the comics.

I finished reading up to issue 90 and I can't find torrents for copies 91-94, I'm gonna get Compendiums 1 and 2 once 2 is released, but I'm on the fence about the trade paperbacks... They take at least 6 months to come out (seeing as this thing is released monthly as long as they don't fall behind schedule). I'll definitely TPB vol 16, but after that I might just go single issue... I dunno... or I can keep pirating until they reach Compendium 3 and buy that hahaha

As a guy who just downloaded it last night I can confirm that demonoid has #95, I grabbed a torrent that had #1-95 plus a couple of other things.

I stopped reading after

Rick and the others went to Alexandria and shot that guy and the comic ended with Rick saying "what?"

I dunno how many issues that is but I guess it's time to catch up
