The second volume in the Walking Dead series has a change of artist, although the original artist Terry Moore still does the cover.  Charlie Adlard has done a good job of capturing the look of the characters but doesn’t have the same level of detail as Moore’s work and as such the art is a little less impressive.  The story carries on from the bombshell ending of the first volume and sees our heroes set off to find somewhere new to live. On their travels they encounter new survivors, all who have some strange sort of back story, and of course Zombies. We also have the big bombshell of a pregnancy for one of the survivors.

Just like the first book, characters don’t seem to live very long in “The walking Dead” and in “Miles Behind Us” several key characters get rather surprisingly killed off.    The book continues to paint a great picture of the mental torture and tension experienced in a realistically portrayed zombie apocalypse. It finishes on another great cliffhanger to make you want to read the next volume. [ISBN-13: 978-1582407753]. 8/10
