The time has come. The forces are aligning. The war has begun! Has Rick brought about the demise of everything he’s built? Or will he triumph once again? Know this… there will be a cost. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve had this volume since the day it came out and I never made time […]

It’s been a good week off from school and work.  My son was fortunate enough to procure a ton of new reads for Christmas.  Some from me, some from others.  One thing he did receive was a gift card to Books-A-Million.  I actually found myself eager as we went to the store yesterday.  Walking through […]

Review: The Walking Dead Vol. 24: Life and Death by Robert Kirkman

As the fair opens at Alexandria, old friends return from afar and new adversaries make their introductions. So it seems my hope that the Whisperers could find a way to be amicable with Rick and the rest of the colonies was short lived. It’s hard to describe them, because at times they almost seem savage-like. […]
