The second The Walking Dead compendium is a weighty volume, coming in at 1068 pages, which equals 48 more issues of graphic novelly goodness. If reading the first compendium taught me to expect the unexpected when it came to how closely the comics and the TV show are related, reading the second was a completely blind experience – as I mentioned in my previous review, the events of the first 48 issues takes us approximately to the same point in the story as last December’s episode 408 (the mid-season finale – see my review here), so the next set takes the story in unanticipated directions. If you’re a fan of the TV series, and don’t want to read any possible spoilers of the upcoming second half of season four, don’t click through; to everyone else, read more after the break.
Spoiler Alert: This review will briefly discuss plot points from the AMC television series The Walking Dead, as well as discussing The Walking Dead: Compendium Two graphic novel at greater length. Read more after the break…if you dare.
