Although volume one of Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore's The Walking Dead did take several pages to find its feet volume 2 on the other hand is up and running. Continuing from the cliff hanger ending from volume 1, the reader is once again reunited to our colourful protagonists who are trying their upmost to keep themselves alive from their zombie attackers just outside of Atlanta.

In Miles Behind Us, the survivors have made the decision to move on in an attempt to find a safer place for them to exist. Unfortunately when society is destroyed and most of your family and loved ones are dead, living is difficult, especially when your limited to supplies and rations.

Like volume one, drama is an integral part of the story, especially the relationships between the survivors which can be quite turbulent at times. One strong plotline in Miles Behind Us is whether the pregnancy of Lori is actually her husband Rick's or is it his best friend Shane. This is left open by Kirkman and needless to say, when the world is falling apart around you, trying to be civil does become a little challenging. Given this evidence, it should also be noted that Zombies are not the only bad things in this world and humans can be equally as nefarious.

As opposed to the regular cast of the previous volume, a few new characters join the ensemble that does freshen up the story slightly. As this small group attempts to find a new refuge, they do discover a haven, however something feels wrong and once the survivors discover the secret, they soon realise that they need to flee.

I enjoyed the writing of Kirkman in Volume 2 and how he manages to capture so many human emotions in his stories, whether it's from a few words or the information he gave his artist, it comes together rather well. My only gripe is that the original artist Tony Moore only done the cover for this and the Charlie Adlard definitely has a different style to Moore which is a lot more chaotic. It would have been nice if Moore continued the artwork in this volume.

In conclusion, Volume 2 explores more of the histories of the characters included in The Walking Dead and the world that they live in and in classic 70's horror fashion, Kirkman finishes the volume with a great cliff hanger as opposed to the more violent ending of volume 1.

Very cool.
