The Walking Dead, Vol. 10: What We Become Reviews

  • Gabby

    A lot of people seem to no like this volume as much, but I would have to strongly disagree. This is one of my favorites so far. This is a strong character development volume and I really enjoyed it. We got to learn a lot more about Abraham and his back story with how his family died, and him and Rick have an important discussion about what it means to survive and what's right and wrong when it comes to killing people. I love how this started with a flashback of Rick and Carl before the apocalyps

    A lot of people seem to no like this volume as much, but I would have to strongly disagree. This is one of my favorites so far. This is a strong character development volume and I really enjoyed it. We got to learn a lot more about Abraham and his back story with how his family died, and him and Rick have an important discussion about what it means to survive and what's right and wrong when it comes to killing people. I love how this started with a flashback of Rick and Carl before the apocalypse started and how even then Rick felt like he couldn't keep him safe. Rick is having hallucinations and thinking he's talking to Lori out of guilt. I actually really like the addition of Abraham and his group. Their characters are interesting.

    So Maggie tried to hang herself and that was really sad and unexpected. Abraham nearly killed her when he thought she was dead, but thank god he didn't. I love that a HUGE iconic moment in the show finally happened in this volume! I'd been waiting for it. The scene where Carl nearly gets raped and Rick bites into that guys neck. It was amazing and happened almost exactly like it did in the tv show which made me so happy. Then Abraham and Rick have this amazing heart to heart and discover they aren't so different after all. Then, we finally see Morgan! Which is another exciting thing. his son is a zombie that he has yet to kill, and he seems to be a little crazy. While they are leaving Morgan's neighborhood they come across a giant 2,000+ herd of zombies and it's crazy! They jump out of the car and run into this house and find things to distract the zombies with, and then they're gone. It was so intense. With all this shit going on I don't know why everyone is saying this is boring and slow now. It's action packed! I don't know why Dale doesn't trust Rick all of a sudden and it's really annoying. I have this gut feeling that Dale is going to die soon.

    Rick’s group have a clear destination, but one thing is to know where to head to, and another is being able to reach there.

    And if you think that a bunch of zombies were dangerous, just wait for a dang herd!

    Zillions of zombies!!!

    You better start running!!!

    Do you remember good old Morgan from the first chapter and also starring a Christmas Special?

    Well, his Christmas became a living ( or more accurate) a dead Halloween, a walking dead Halloween. And with nothing to lose, and...

    ...he will be part of Rick’s group.

    And as I told you before, zombies are easy to understand, people not so much, and in this dystopian crazy world,...

    ...kids are no longer really kids anymore.

    Another great entry in the series, just like the previous volume with a slower pace and Rick still effected by the events at the prison.

    The series still continues to surprise me, I was shocked by Maggie’s actions.

    This leads to a confrontation between Rick and Abraham, the tension between them two was so gripping and I liked how it was resolved.

    Yet again their some truly gruesome images and it’s not just the zombies, there’s a particular attempted rape of a child here.

    The reintroduction of Morgan

    The reintroduction of Morgan has certainly added a new dynamic to the group.

    This series is so addictive!

    Yikers. New people are always unpredictable, and I totally understand being wary, but this volume definitely shows how those you think you know can be just as unpredictable and terrifying. The scene with the cat... yeah. It's just half a page and only a handful of words... but that's such a powerful image illustrating how depraved the situation has made people become. Hence the volume title, right?

    I loved Rick in this volume. He grows back a bit of the backbone he had lost when Carl is threatene

    I loved Rick in this volume. He grows back a bit of the backbone he had lost when Carl is threatened, and in doing so gains back some initiative and purpose. I will say that Dale is getting on my nerves though. Always the one least willing to lead has something negative to say about those who try, and I think it's pretty damn shitty to put all the blame for danger on one person, especially when safety in general is so rare in the world these people are living in. I hope he gets a wakeup call soon.

    Awesome volume. It's insane to think that these comics have a crazy high standard and they keep that standard up with every volume. It's such a good comic. It's not just about zombies and killing them. It's really about the people. The psychological effects of living in a zombie apocalypse, losing everyone and everything you love, trying to survive and the things you have to do in order to survive. I just love the psychology, morality and philosophy behind it all. I really think things are getti

    Ah well, it had to happen – after the excitement of the Governor storyline and the new direction of the series in the last book, Volume 10 of The Walking Dead sees the plot slowing down, almost as if they’re taking stock of everything that’s happened, and it’s a bit of a snoozer. It also weirdly feels like a throwback volume to the kind we got pre-Governor, ie. the bad old days.

    Ah well, it had to happen – after the excitement of the Governor storyline and the new direction of the series in the last book, Volume 10 of The Walking Dead sees the plot slowing down, almost as if they’re taking stock of everything that’s happened, and it’s a bit of a snoozer. It also weirdly feels like a throwback volume to the kind we got pre-Governor, ie. the bad old days.

    Rick and the handful of survivors from the original group, including his son Carl, have joined some new characters led by Abraham, a former US Military serviceman, as they take a scientist, who knows what caused the zombie apocalypse, to Washington, D.C., to uh... fix/explain things? Oh, I cannot wait to see that! Bunch of guys in lab coats sat round, laughing uncomfortably in between blasts from their inhalers. “Yeah, haha, oooooooooh, that whole zombie apocalypse… thing? That was a whacky day in the office! My bad. SOS! Pretty cool to see though, right? I mean, who knew we’d all be living in a George Romero movie if someone dropped that beaker of green liquid! Wait, what’re you doing with that baseball bat…!”.

    Rick realises they’re near his old hometown so he and Carl, along with Abraham, go on a gun-gathering mission to Rick’s old police station lockup, while the others sit tight for their return. That’s the plot of this volume - pretty basic, right?

    Kirkman uses this book to draw parallels with the first volume and show how much Rick’s changed in the year since he woke up in the abandoned hospital, while also touching base with how the first person Rick met when he left the hospital, Morgan, has fared.

    The obviousness of the subtitle – What We Become – and the way that plays into Rick’s behaviour when they encounter a group of child-raping hillbillies who want to take Carl, is borderline comical. This is Kirkman once again attempting to be thoughtful and deep and totally flubbing it – it’s like that “WE are The Walking Dead!” line Rick said; Rick, once again, realising how much he’s changed is kind of obvious to everyone – come on, give the readers some credit, we get that he’s changed and it’s fairly clear to him too, so why spend a whole book on it?

    Abraham’s life story is predictably, almost hilariously, bleak because this series is so unrelentingly miserable, as is Morgan’s – hey, it’s The Walking Dead, nobody is allowed to have it easy! – but mostly this book felt like Kirkman replaying moments from earlier in the series. The angsty internal politics of the group flare up again with the new members, they hunt for more firearms again, and there’s even another attempted suicide!

    And, like with the earlier attempted suicide, it has the opposite effect, at least to me, coming out of the blue like it did and made me laugh. It’s one of the seasoned characters so it seemed odd that they’d choose now to try to off themselves, even with the new information from Rick. It just felt like they’d moved on and had some semblance of happiness in their new life, and Kirkman threw that in so Abraham’d have a moment of doubt in what he’d been doing up ‘til then. Just felt contrived, s’all.

    Maybe Kirkman’s making a point about the repetitive nature of this new world where strangers getting thrown together without knowing each other will always raise matters of trust and create tension in a group, and that gun/ammo runs have become a daily occurrence in the characters’ lives, but it’s still not very interesting for the audience to read.

    That’s not to say this book isn’t fun because that whole sequence where Rick, Carl and Abraham get caught up in a zombie herd was great, and I like the uncertainty that mentally unbalanced Morgan brings to the group – methinks he’s not long for this series! But there’s a lot of what feels like filler in this book when I’d have preferred for the group to have hit the trail to DC hard instead.

    So Volume 10’s an average addition to the series as a whole but hopefully, going forward, the series will put its compelling plot to better use and once more build up momentum.

    Bullet Review:

    Add to the pile of disturbing imagery and plot lines "attempted child rape" and "death by drill bits". Abraham is, by far, the most likeable character (though, please, that Sally Sob Story is just over-the-top); Rick a raging hypocrite. I feel like points of this were pointless, such as the trek for weapons (but they lost the truck) and an annoying character's attempted suicide (but don't worry, it only takes 2.5 seconds of offscreen thinking to make things ALL BETTER).

    Still mildly

    Still mildly interested in where they go from here as we *gasp* get answers about how this THING happened.

    this one was pretty much the same as the last issue not much happened apart from 3 new characters who made their first appearance which were Abraham, Rostia and Eugene

  • Fables&Wren

    So some interesting things happened in this volume.

    First, you see that Rick and Abraham are either going to absolutely hate each other and probably kill each other, or they are going to both go mad holding hands and be best friends. Hot and cold with these two. Their personalities are both dominating ones, so they aren't getting along all that well.

    You also get to learn a little more about Abraham's past and why he is the way he is. Like what happened to his family; which, as it is expected, is really stinkin' sad.

    The third thing is that the group finally gets to deal with a legendary herd they kept hearing about from Abraham. And I am talking like two thousand little roamers. Like that's insane. How have they not come across a herd yet is really the question.

    The twins are up to something not good... well, nothing yet... but you know it is coming.. because they are doing creepy things that are letting me know they aren't mentally stable.

    *she says as she uses a GIF that will let readers know what she is talking about without actually revealing it.*

    Thing five and six are things I can not actually talk about because it's too sensitive. Like seriously, you shouldn't be reading this series unless you are like in your twenties.

    05. Maggie did something that I will never completely forgive her for.

    06. The thing that almost happened that involved Carl. Like absolutely cannot deal.

    I can't talk about that anymore without getting either blazing mad or blubbery sad.

    But on a good yet sad note, we introduced Morgan again! He has seen some things and he is not the same person anymore, but he is going to add some new dynamics to the characters I am sure.

    This was all very introspective, Rick and Abraham spilling the beans to each other and realising just how similar they are. In order to survive they’ve both become monsters; they know it too, and they’re at war with themselves. They know what they’ve become and they hate the necessity of it. It’s a simple case of kill or be killed. This famous line seems more appropriate than ever:

    Rick also turned a new corner.We all know that he is brutal and strong, but that act was something else.

    It just goes to show how much of his humanity he is willing to sacrifice to keep him and his son alive. Honestly though, there wasn’t a great deal else he could have done other than lay down and die. He saw an opening, the only opening, and he took it. Well, bit it would be more appropriate!

    So the story is progressing, and it’s going in a great direction. All the characters are well written, and the ones that are becoming stale are clearly going to be droped soon. I’m looking forward to catching up with the television show events, and seeing Negan on the page! ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
