The Walking Dead, Vol. 32: Rest In Peace Reviews

  • Benjamin Barnes

    I absolutely love the Comic book series . At this point in time the TV show is Meh. It's hard to believe that the Series is Finished. It was with a heavy heart that I said goodbye to the Characters. Much Love to Kirkman and the Creators

  • Karl Marberger

    I’m speechless.

  • Nate

    I was so surprised when I found out TWD was over! Especially after Kirkman had alluded to a possible 300 issues. I started reading where I left off at vol 24 with trepidation, but I was soon swept up in the narrative and as engrossed and addicted as ever. I actually really enjoyed the ending and felt it was a suitably epic feel to the final issue. Cool stuff.

  • Shaun Stanley

    What a great ending to one of the best comic series ever. As much as I want the series to keep going, it ends at a great point. It's such a disappointment how far the show has fallen while the comic remained so entertaining. Long live Rick Grimes.

  • Ben Brown

    Is it just me, or does it feel like The Walking Dead is finally – albeit slowly – lumbering zombie-like towards its endgame? Big things happen in this volume – like, game-changing things. After 192 issues and 32 volumes, it’s a little strange to read “The Walking Dead” and feel like it’s winding in a distinct narrative direction – so much of the comic’s appeal over the years has been its carefree, almost purposeless sense of direction, story-wise. Here’s hoping Kirkman can stick the landing bett

    And there you have it. The end of an era. 15 years, 193 issues later, and The Walking Dead is over.

    Is it a good ending? I'd argue that it is, yeah. It feels like the end of the story, and the majority of everything we needed to know is answered in the epic-sized final issue. The story of The Walking Dead, the story of Rick Grimes, is over, and it definitely feels like the right place to end. The final issue itself deserves five stars alone, as an issue and as an ending.

    The thing I take issue with more is the abruptness of it. The massive time jump between the penultimate and final issues feels like there were more stories to tell here. I do like how the story of the Commonwealth finally ended, in a pretty unexpected way for TWD, but I'm not sure if just cutting it so cleanly and then jumping forward was the right move.

    The Walking Dead as a phenomenon will live on long after the series is over, but for now, it's time to say goodbye to this incarnation of these characters.

    It's over!!! :O!!!!

    Review to come (eventually).

    I got ONE image of Negan in this ENTIRE volume!! >=[

    But maybe Kirkman will do a Negan spinoff series or novel. One can hope!. On that note, please read "The Quotable Negan." It's great!

  • Marc *Dark Reader of the Woods*

    OH MY GOD IT'S FINALLY OVER!!! I had no idea when I got this from the library that it was the LAST volume of the series. I don't exactly have my ear to the ground about such matters, and per the afterword by Kirkman he kept it on the down-low that the series was ending, so I don't feel too oblivious. Rather, I am RELIEVED; I picked this up thinking, "Ugh, another volume, will it ever end?" Yes, it will. Now. It ends now.

    There were some decent moments, but the stuttering pacing that has plagued

    There were some decent moments, but the stuttering pacing that has plagued the series persists in the first half of this collection. Aside from one big moment (you will know it if you read it), the whole affair with the Commonwealth was underwhelming. I am not enamored with the post-script either; it failed to give me a warm fuzzy like most such story endings would. It's still a decent ending, but I was ready for it to happen many issues ago.

    The art... man, those people look weird, with their too-big eyes.

  • Etienne

    Finally the end. A series that have been stretch for too long in my opinion and this one was again mostly the same. I enjoy the last 30-40 pages where we really felt the end and Kirkman did a good job at closing it all and provide an interesting ending.

  • Sam Quixote

    It’s… over?

    Wha… no foolin’!? Sweet zombie jesus!

    Yup, the series that became like the rotting, shambling corpses featured in its pages has finally come to a long overdue end. I kinda feel like Kent Brockman – why now, why not five years ago??

    So after years of saying he’d end The Walking Dead at 300 issues, Robert Kirkman surprised long-suffering readers last month by

    pulling the plug early with issue #193, the various reasons for which he talks about in his lengthy afterword (basically he ran out of material).

    So how is the final book? Like the last few volumes have been: not good! Rick clashes with the Hillary Clinton leader of the Commonwealth and her Joffrey-esque son, bringing a merciful end to that tedious storyline.

    One of the funniest moments in the series for me was a speech Rick gave a while ago which ends with a double splash page where he looks at the reader and says “WE are the walking dead!” in an eye-rolling no shit Sherlock moment. The Commonwealth storyline builds up to Rick giving what’s meant to be a moving, emotional speech that ends with a reference to that earlier speech with Rick saying in a similar double splash “We are NOT the walking dead!”, totally undercutting the serious tone it was shooting for and reducing what should’ve been a powerful moment into laughter!

    About the only notable thing to happen is a certain main character dying – and if you know this is the last book, you know the only character it could be

    - which I guess was kinda moving but also expected.

    The twenty years later jump (it doesn’t say exactly how many years but it seems like a fair chunk of time) as an extended epilogue was interesting – briefly. It was sweet seeing who ended up marrying who and what the surviving characters did with their lives. And then it overstays its welcome. I mean, did we really need to have the story of Carl and Hershel’s court case over zombies as property (that’s just my phrasing – Kirkman got through the whole series without once mentioning the word “zombie”, so kudos for that!)? I guess it’s sort of amusing to see how the perceptions of the zombies have shifted because life has gotten that safe, but it just went on and on, seemingly only so we could see familiar characters older, and in new roles.

    But I didn’t like the twenty years later world. It was essentially just the old west cowboys’n’injuns world – very unimaginative. The final image of the series is cute but the words preceding it are way too long-winded and dull to convincingly be read as a children’s book.

    Overall there was an absolute shit-ton more exposition than usual, none of which I found especially compelling, and the forced action scenes with the zombies were rubbish – the zombies are too easily defeated now so there’s zero excitement seeing the characters fight them. I believe Kirkman when he says he ran out of material because I was yawning the whole time throughout this one. It’s a bit of a disappointing end to what was a decent series.

    The Walking Dead definitely had its moments. About half of the books are really good, like the ones featuring The Governor and Negan. The series hit its peaks when it had strong villains for Rick and co. to battle against, that weren’t zombies, and they were both terrific bad guys. Speaking of, I wanted to see what became of Negan in the epilogue but, beyond a page hinting at his continued existence, we didn’t get anything more, which was a shame.

    Then again, I’m sure that’s deliberate and Kirkman will return at some point to tell Negan’s story in full. Because even if Volume 32 is “the end”, it’s really only the end of this story arc. Let’s be real: the series is way too popular and profitable to never revisit again. I’m sure in five or ten years when Kirkman’s got more ideas, or HBO’s demanding more stories for a new TV show because nostalgia SELLS, he and Charlie Adlard will be back for more. Particularly as there are so many possibilities to explore. Besides Negan’s story they could tell the story of what happened in the interval between, or what happened in other areas of the world during this time, or even jump ahead of the time jump and see what the world beyond the new old west looks like.

    Rest in peace? Bitch, please. This is comics – nobody ever stays deaded, not least a series about the undead!
