The Walking Dead takes on a new direction in Volume 12 when our survivors encounter another group who are living in a community that seems too good to be true. One thing Kirkman does really well is develop a sense of mistrust in the reader. Too many times in previous volumes he has lulled the reader into a false sense of security before hitting them with some shocking event.  “Life Among Them” fairly bristles with tension and apprehension for what will happen next.  I kept expecting to find some new horror revealed on every page  but this book ends up being more of a setup issue for what is to come.  Volume 12 has great art and storytelling and the series shows no sign of going stale. [ISBN-13: 978-1607062547]. 8/10
