It occurs to me that we haven’t traditionally done discussion posts for trades, which is ridiculous given how many people read the trades and not the issues. So here we go, a discussion post for Volume 19, which is out today!
Volume 19 covers issues 109-114 (116 JUST came out today, that’s crazy, you’re so close to caught up!) and contains the story arc immediately preceding the mega-size arc All Out War. There’s so much in here!
-Michonne meets Ezekiel and we learn more about him.
-Jesus stops a traitor and just generally acts like a badass.
-Gregory is pervy.
-Eugene wonders if making ammo is really the way to peace.
-Spencer finally gets his.
-Rick tries to take out Negan.
-Shiva finally chomps someone.
-Andrea gets the crap beaten out of her.
-Jesus convinces Rick of how important he is (or tries).
-Negan realizes that war is coming.
-And way, way more.
So what did you guys think of Volume 19: March to War?! And what’s going to happen next?
Good buildup to the best to be story arc of the walking dead! Spencer being gutted was defintly a highlight. (Hated that guy).
Agreed, and the way Negan handled it and slicing his insides was totally awesome! And when he casually told his henchman to pick it up before a kid sees it was so funny.
Can’t wait to get mine in the mail!!!!! Sounds like an epic volume!!
I find it more engrossing to read the trades. Perhaps it creates more continuity in my interest of the characters and storyline because I am reading more at one time. I read to review the comic for leadership, so the trades help with noticing consistency in the actions of the characters. That said, I still read the issues each month digitally, then purchase the trades as hardcopies as they are released.
It was a great bedtime story. hahaha. 🙂
Most importantly, when does Volume 20 come out, and how can I know when and where to get the actual issues as they are released one by one?
Still waiting to read it on my kobo…
