Comme dans les films de Romero pour lequel Kirkman n'a jamais caché son admiration , la lutte de survivants humains contre 90% de l'humanité réduite à l'état de Zombies , est un pretexte pour dénoncer les méfaits de la société de consommation et réflechir à la condition humaine .
Dans cette BD admirablement scénarisée où TOUT peut arriver surtout le pire !
Nos survivants doivent s'interroger sur leur propre humanité ou ce qu'il en reste dans un monde où les morts dominent ,quelles valeurs adopter ( c'est la notion de propriété qui va conduire 80% de nos héros à leur perte) comment reorganiser un semblant de société ?
Comble de l'ironie ,depuis 5 volumes ,nos survivants trouvent refuge dans une prison désaffectée qui les protège des Zombies !
Après un volume marqué par l'acalmie ( "The Calm before" ) une menace humaine ( et donc bien plus terrible ) vient mettre fin à ce que Rick et ses amis ont mis tant de mal à construire depuis le début de la saga.
C'est une véritable guerre civile qui se déclenche sous les yeux du lecteur et RIEN ne pourra vous préparer au final de cette histoire qui pourrait être la fin de la série en soi.
On ressort de "Made to Suffer" choqué , sonné et ..... affamé : qu'est ce que Kirkman va pouvoir inventer pour rebondir après cet arc bouleversant et traumatisant?
Je recommande aux lecteurs anglophiles d'acheter plutot les volumes US moins chers pour un papier de meilleur qualité que l'édition française!
le série TV n'est pas forcement fidèle à la BD

In a flashback we see The Governor, body horribly maimed by Michonne but hateful soul intact, marshalling his forces against Rick's enclave using blatant lies and force of will. Suffice to say that he's more twisted now than ever, especially given the depths he's sunk to in his relationship with the little girl zombie he keeps leashed up at home. Between her and his "entertainment system," we see that he's more comfortable relating with the undead than with the living.
After we return to his assault on the prison, things get even nastier. No quarter is asked, and none given. Familiar characters are brutally murdered, badly wounded, spiritually broken, or flee for their lives. What makes this volume so devastating is that many longtime players are lost or forever damaged, even some that have been around since day one. And of course, the undead feast on anyone unlucky enough to get in their way (talk about survival of the fittest). As with most zombie stories, the undead aren't really the villains. Indeed, the living are more gruesome and do the most heinous deeds by far.
In the end, we have yet another of Mr. Kirkman's trademark cliffhangers, one that tops all the previous ones in its horror and desolation. I don't know what Mr. Kirkman snorts while writing these stories, but it must be some hardcore stuff. Absolutely recommended - but not for kids or the faint of heart.
The Walking Dead Volume 8 continues the story of former Normal-World Police Officer Rick Grimes and those that he comes in contact with in a New World...a world that has been over-run by zombies.
I'd agree with you if you thought that maybe The Walking Dead, Vol. 7: The Calm Before took a major pause in the epic series to focus less on zombies and more on what happens to society, its morals, laws and standards when government is lost and the planet becomes mostly uninhabitable.
You'll probably recall that previous volumes in the series showed how venturing out of the confines and security provided by the characters' home (established in Volume 3) are less than safe. The new zombie-infested world is dangerous not only because of the hordes of undead, but outside the gates await unfathomable chaos and horror in the pockets of societies of other survivors (see Volumes 5 and 6)....Especially in Volume 6 where survivors in desperate situations do the unthinkable to stay alive (or entertained).
By the end of Volume 6 we thought that one of the major threats to the primary group of survivors that the series follows had been removed. But what fan of the series can forget the cliffhanger of a last page from Volume 7? Volume 7 was appropriately named "The Calm Before", because Volume 8 is indeed a storm. Volume 8 picks up right from the shocker of a final Volume 7 page and relentlessly presents a war...not between the undead and man...but between two societies of the living in a world gone mad.
There's real, heartfelt emotion in The Walking Dead series combined with believable scenarios. I was never a big comic book guy prior to this series. Now I'm singing a different tune. This comic book series blows the doors off of a lot DVDs that I've wasted time with, and it's introduced me to a whole new entertainment media.
Anyway, the volume releases of The Walking Dead are like reading a screenplay with storyboards of a version of Night of the Living Dead that began simultaneously, but in a different part of the country (much like George Romero's late 2007 release, Diary of the Dead). Yes, The Walking Dead is kind of a rip-off of a story (stories) already told, but the key is that it's done very very well. The zombies are true to the original Romero creation: slow and stupid as opposed to the fast and thinking "infected" in (28 Weeks Later / 28 Days Later) or the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.
Each Walking Dead volume only takes about an hour to get all the way through, and they leave you wanting more. And they seem to keep coming; I think that issues 49 - 55 will likely comprise Volume 9 (with issue 55 due in Sept '08), so unfortunately, as of this writing, only #49 - #53 are published. The wait begins.
Volumes 1 - 8 are all available individually. A hard cover combination of Volumes 1 & 2 is out (The Walking Dead Book 1, a hard cover combination of Volumes 3 & 4 is out (The Walking Dead, Book 2), and Volumes 5 & 6 are now combined in Hardcover (The Walking Dead Book 3).
Anyone in need of a very well done zombie fix that you don't put into your DVD player should absolutely get down with The Walking Dead sickness. Add it to your cart, but be sure to start with Volume 1 and read them chronologically.
The Governor is the antithesis of Rich and many of his nobler band of survivors, who really just want to survive with as much of their humanity and community intact as possible. No, this Governor holds power with the darkest, most two-faced tyrannical and ruthless means and desires possible. I dare you not to puke up a bit at the scenes with his "daughter."
It's a helluva showdown in this volume. The cost will be tremendous, as it must when both sides are motivated and well-armed and will not give up.
It's really hard to see some characters go. Very hard. But now one is left wondering what new horrors (and depths of courage and conflict) await the survivors.
It's actually dramatically a good move--even if it breaks your heart and turns your stomach. The prison has been the setting for a good space now. It's time to see what else is out there in a land gone very, very wrong.
It can only get worse, I imagine. But I'm in for the awful ride.
A terrific series for zombie fans, or postapocalyptic fans. It's not about colorful artwork, though the visuals are solid. It's about a story. A horror story. And it's topnotch.
On to this installment, spoilers below for previous installments, but not for this one.
When we last left our heroes they were back in the unsure safety of their prison. They had survived, barely, their last brush with the governor. Now the governor returns with a vengance, having barely survived his brush with the bad a**, sword wielding Michonne.
What can I say, if you thought the volume 7: the calm before was a little slow, this is your payoff. I don't know how this volume could have suprised me more. I don't know what I will do until the next one comes out. Maybe I will have to start getting the comics as they come out faster than the combined volumes. Everything you thought you knew about the rules of horror stories is thrown out the window. Good becomes bad, bad becomes good and no one is safe.
First this series really seemed a morality tale of how a good cop like Rick could turn into someone who would do evil to protect his family. Now morality is thrown out the window. Everything is about survival.
We expected this and it has finally come. I do not like giving away details or spoilers but I think no one should be surprised that things change dramatically and quite permanently for all the characters.
I can't help but believe that from what I have seen with this story that this is arguably one of the best, if not the best zombie story ever written or filmed. That it is not over (and I have no idea when if ever Kirkman plans on bringing things to a close) only adds to my fascination with it.
