Title: All Together Now – Volume 1
Author: Alan Ball
Finished: September 19, 2011
Format: First Edition
Even before I read this, I had already purchased and read the graphic novels individually, but it was fun to re-read in order and gain the full experience.
The great part of the new graphic novel series is that you get more stories about the show than they can portray on air. In this particular adventure, Sookie and friends are stuck inside Merlotte’s with a demon who feeds off other people’s greatest secrets.
In order to survive, the group has to share their deepest & darkest with those around them.
I look forward to seeing what the next volume has in store.

Title: The Walking Dead
Author: Robert Kirkman
Finished: September 2 – October 15, 2011
Instead of writing 14 reviews for the individual volumes, I thought I would give me overview so far of the series. I read most of it back to back and it seems fitting to write this review as I’m watching the Walking Dead Season 1 Marathon on AMC right now before Season 2 premieres tonight.
Not only to compare the first and second season to the first two volumes, but I couldn’t help continuing to read volume after volume to find out what happens to the group. If anything, this is the first time I’ve read a series where the unexpected can literally happen without notice. Just because you think it would be crazy to do something or thing it impossible and crazy, that is exactly what they would do.
This series of graphic novels is very interesting, intriguing and full of twists and turns. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
