YOOOOOOOOOOOOO YES I’VE READ THEM. I’M ALL CAUGHT UP. WAITING FOR THE NEXT ISSUE TO BE RELEASED.
The comics are great and yes I’d suggest them to fans of the show and yes they are better than the show, hands down. Now, i’m not trying to bash the show (even though it deserves bashing) but the comics has somethign the show lacks A LOT. Consistency.
The comics are consistent 90% of the time. Character and plot wise. The show tends to write things around what they want, where as the comic (and like any good narration) does what needs to be done. People die. People commit horrible crimes. but it’s all in character. On the show though, half the time things happen because the writers want it to happen. Dale’s actor was leaving the show, so they had to kill him off. Thus the whole CARL STAY IN THE HOUSE thing and resulting in a really…strange…by chance death. They tried to add this depth to it, but realistically it felt weird and just out of place. Then you have characters saying one thing and then suddenly going back on their own code (and not in ironic plot way but literally like how can rick suddenly just become a farmer after everything???idont’ get it). The only time the show is consistent is when it a) follows the comics b) follows it’s own original plots/character development — aka daryl dixon.
The comics also don’t shy away from getting dirty and remaining dirty. The show is so wishy washy about characters and I find the most interesting characters the ones that don’t cause the most drama (daryl, carl, maggie, michonne). That also reminds me. I read a review somewhere for season four saying how the writers of the show try to write these great characters but they fail to understand them. Which I think really applies to Andrea. In the comics she’s an important, valuable character (and still alive and kickin’ ass in teh comics). They tried to give her this cool origin story—comback kid sort of—but it completely backfired. Instead she became the most annoying, thus killed off.
i know i’m bashing. I do like the show. At times. It’s the most inconsistently written show i know of, but it’s noT HORRIBle. It’s visually grand. I feel like i continue watching bc I know there is something really good lying ahead (and now that I’ve read the comics, I know something good is lying ahead).
