Dead again

I recently read book 14 of Robert Kirkmans' The Walking Dead, a successful comic book series that has become a hit TV show starring Andrew "Egg from This Life" Lincoln.

In brief this volume suffers from the same problem common to post-apocalyptic drama that I have mentioned before. Cory Doctorow is a science fiction writer and well known tech blogger. His own posting about this volume on BoingBoing neatly summarises the attraction and at the same time the problems with the genre.
