The Walking Dead: Fear the Hunters (Vol 11) review

The Walking Dead, Vol. 11: Fear the Hunters - Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn

Providing a much-needed ramp-up to what had been a slowly stagnating series, Volume 11 of Kirkman and Adlard's version of the zombie apocalypse goes for the juggler in a short, nasty story-line that is extremely impressive. Those who questioned any human could provide a credible threat to Rick and his group after the events at the prison might now have reason to pause before proclaiming such ill-considered judgements, because while none of the antagonists here stand anywhere near the Governor in terms of character, their methods and rationale for what they do is fantastically barbaric and equally memorable.

I suspect I would have rated this one even higher had it not been for the fact I viewed the television show's version of these events first. But I can still appreciate what Kirkman scripted here, as to my mind, the hunters and their ultimate fates play out more effectively in this format.
