“Hearts Desire” is set in the abandoned prison where conflict between the existing inmates and the survivors comes to a head. The main focus of the volume is the hero of the book, Rick Grimes, plunging further into madness and alienating the rest of the party. A major new character is also introduced in the form of a mysterious sword wielding lady. Her joining the prison dwellers causes some major relationships changes for the surviving key characters. It wouldn’t be a walking dead book without a body count of key characters and this volume is no exception. Robert Kirkman is definitely going to make it difficult for them to cast people in the TV adaption of this book.
Volume 4 of the Walking Dead continues on with its dark and intense plot and shows no sign of losing its freshness or pace. Hearts Desire is another solid volume with consistently good gray scale art. There are some dramatic splash pages in this volume that really hammer the story home. [ISBN-13: 978-1582405308]. 8/10
