Review of The Walking Dead Vol. 30 by Robert Kirkman

Volume 30 of The Walking Dead 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 wooden dialogue.  But I am really excited to see where this goes.

4 of 5 Stars.

    I read the first compendium and enjoyed it. Some of the changes the show made to its story were kind of befuddling (why did they make Andrea suck?).

    Hoping to return to this series someday; just hasn’t been high up on my reading list. Glad to hear you’re enjoying it, though. Nice to know it doesn’t peter out. Yet, at least.

      The first compendium is the best, I think, but the quality has remained pretty high and fairly even throughout. They are also pretty reliable about getting them out.

      And it is much, much better than the show.

    I tried reading this. My sister had the first two or three trade paperbacks and I felt what you mentioned in this review: “How are all the characters so stupid?” I’ve never seen fictional characters make so many boneheaded decisions in my life.
