Reviews The Walking Dead, Vol. 30

  • Sam Quixote
    Rick and his jolly band come across a new group: the Commonwealth! And so begins the same old story – can they trust them or is they nutballs?What a boring book! The Commonwealth aren’t that bad a bunch despite having Stormtroopers and a Joffrey-esque shithead second-in-line to power, so the characters spend the entire volume looking about this large (by Walking Dead standards) town and bugger-all else! Princess is still hanging around, up in...

    I enjoyed this volume. There wasn’t a lot of zombie action but quite a bit happened for a few different characters. Kirkman also introduced a few new characters and I’m glad he’s actually fleshing new characters out because in the past, new characters were coming and going and none of them were standing out to me. I’m really interested to see what happens next with the new story that was introduced. It’s something quite different and I...

    The Walking Dead, Vol. 30: 180 issues in, and “The Walking Dead,” somehow, is still trucking along as strong as ever. With this latest arc, Robert Kirkman introduces an entirely new element into the series - the return, more or less, of a fully functioning, “modern” civilization – and then proceeds to set our favorite characters loose into this all new playground let them react to it. The result is, for my money, one of the series’ be...

    Yes, I'm still reading this. I have given up on the show, though I'm carrying on with the comic for a bit longer. Though it does feel a bit repetitive now...

    The first thing my husband says when he sees this: "Why are there Stormtroopers?" Hah! That was great. But why ARE there Stormtroopers? This volume picks up right where the previous one left off: an encounter with a new community that Eugene had been communicating with. The majority of this novel focuses on the Commonwealth, a community of over fifty thousand people. They basically have their own army, hence the armored outfits, and people live l...

    Well, this series continues to be a conondrum for me. There are elements of this arc I really loved (Michonnes reunion, Maggie beginning to move on and the fallout from that), and some moments that seem like we've seen before (ANOTHER outpost of survivors met, only to be potentially alienated by Rick.)While this series still has no visible end-point in sight, at least I finally have the feeling they are finally beginning to show progress in the b...
  • Dan
    Not much takes place in this volume in terms of action. It mostly acts as a pivot and beginning into a new arc that’s looking to be interesting.One thing I think the comics do better than the show (which has lost the plot for the third year in a row) is that they are constantly evolving the story of rebuilding society. That’s the interesting part in this type of ongoing concept. Here we see the seeds planted of opposing ideologies over how so...
  • Cale
    As many people have noted, Walking Dead is very cyclical. But it's an additive cycle - each time the survivors run into another group, it seems the newcomers are another step up the ladder of civilization. That's very true with this volume, as Michonne and Eugene lead a group to meet Stephanie. The initial interactions feel very realistic, as neither group is willing to trust the other, but eventually the interactions reach friendlier terms. It s...

    Really interesting story arc! I shocker with michonne
  • XO
    This is the only on going comic I keep following I just wish Rick would die, it’s about time...Enjoy
  • Joshua Williams
    Kirkman, if you let Rick grimes start another f***ing war I will burn my walking dead collection and never look back.
  • Craig
    Not quite up to the same level as some of the previous, recent volumes, but still this promises a nice, new direction for the series. I really appreciate that we've gotten to the point where the focus is more on the rebuilding of civilization than it is on fighting/killing zombies and there's more of that in this collection, as Eugene and his group meet the Commonwealth. At first, things look a bit menacing--the soldiers are all dressed in Stormt...

  • Booklover
    I finally finished volumes 1 to 30 of this great series! I thought it would be over by now but it looks like it will be ongoing. Kirkman can certainly create engaging plotlines and characters. But how does one end a series like this? Happy endings are boring, cliché, and would also be disappointing after such a horrific and gruesome series.
  • Ryan La
    I thought that was a very different take on "The Walking Dead" universe but it was still entertaining. For me I really like the original volumes but this one took an interesting turn and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • Theresa
    New arc in the storyline; our survivors found a new thriving community 50,000 strong. I’m excited to see where it goes and how bad the new bad guys get!
  • Dimitris
    Saying my piece about this garbage on my review for #179. ^_^
  • Cassie-la
    ORIGINALLY POSTED: ready for tearful reunions and a brand-new community with questionable motives. Yes, another one. The latest collection in the Walking Dead series is not terrible, but it’s not terribly exciting either as things are slowly set in motion for the next arc. Is this merely a filler trade setting us up for the next big bad? Probably. But at least everyone’s new fan favorite the Princes...
  • Jose Luis (Liantener)
    Aunque es curioso ver una comunidad más grande que la que Rick y sus amigos han creado, y aunque hay muchos secretos por desvelar, no pasa gran cosa. El cambio en la historia de Michone (cuidado con los spoilers) es quizá el más interesante. Habrá que ver a dónde nos lleva todo esto.
  • Micaela
    Cuando pensas que se va a poner repetitivo, Bam, te salen con esto. Pura genialidad.
  • Nuno Ferreira
    Este volume 30 veio abrir um milhão de possibilidades e gerar uma reviravolta imensa no mundo a que nos habituamos a ver em The Walking Dead. O argumento continua coeso e bem amarrado, jogando entre os momentos de maior drama e os momentos de maior ritmo e ação nas doses certas. Somos apresentados a novas personagens, testemunhamos reencontros e novas questões são levadas a lume, adivinhando-se uma nova crise e – quiçá – uma nova guerr...
  • Alex Escalante
    This volume has the survivors meeting and getting to know the people of the NWO community. This is one of those volumes that fills in the story and sets up later volumes which I'm sure will contain more action. I know this has been said before, but it is truly remarkable that we are on volume 20 of a zombie killing book, but there is barely any zombies in the book at all at this point. Also, Rick is, while still a major player, less essential to ...
  • Bryan
    -- read as single issues #175 - #180 --With issue #180's release this past week, this volume is complete. I feel comfortable with a four star rating. I enjoy some issues more than others but for the most part I don't consider this a five-star book anymore. At least not on average. Prior to #180 I was all set up to complain about how I think The Walking Dead may soon be entering 'overstaying its welcome' territory. It's not that I'm ready to see i...

    The New World Order expands TWD and introduces some new characters and potential conflicts between the constant struggle in our civilisation between (equality and freedom). I have missed that TWD is making social commentaries and am keen to see where this will go.Spoilers below:175: Contact with Commonwealth. A picture makes Michonne cry (and me too).176: Governor and reunion177: Reunion continued and the governor's son is an ass.178: The governo...

    Volume 30 introduced us to a new community, a city with sports teams and restaurants, like the world before the walking dead. The Commonwealth is set up with a class system and people working at the jobs they worked before the apocalypse. The group sent from Alexandria are impressed by the scope and size of the community but not all are comfortable with the way it is run. I thought this was a good volume with some interesting new characters. Pame...

    I'm still enjoying my read after 180 issues, wow .This volume is different , because of the characters that we are following,A few surprises , new asshole to hate.Kirkmam is renewing. Is writing over and over . Not a lot of writer have achieved what he as done, walking dead as been constant for the past 15 ,there was up and down, but remember it's him and Addlar 183 issues what an accomplishment.did the same thing with invincible.This is still a ...

    Volume 30 picks up where Volume 29 left off. An expedition from Alexandria et al. discovers a new community—the largest one The Walking Dead has ever seen. It looks to be fascinating, allows for one big reunion(!), and sets up potentially a lot of story. The slow moments and the emotional beats here are also very, very good. The volume is only hurt by some characters making some decisions that frankly don’t make a lot of sense and by some woo...
  • Juan
    This world just keeps getting bigger.We get to explore a larger world with a network closer to the Midwest of America. It sounds so unique hearing that a small crew of travelers made the long trek and found a community 50,000 people strong.Without giving away too many details, my two favorite elements of this arc is the in depth look into Michonne's past and how it will change her future. The second is seeing Princess in action. The girl has got ...

    SPOILERS AHEAD!So we where finally introduced to a new group, the biggest and the most organized so far, and I don’t like them already... the governor of this group had this spoiled sun, arg so irritating!! The good news, Michonne finds her daughter, she’s alive, me so happy!!
