About this deal

There's pacing issues, and many of the panels are hard to read visually, so it takes a buffering moment to actually understand what is going on. In the aftermath of Amos' murder, Olivia is distraught over Amos's death causing Georgia to stomp on her back, telling her to shut up. Clementine is back on the road, looking to put her traumatic past behind her and forge a new path all her own. She often shows little tolerance for Clementine's eccentricities and enjoys domineering other people, particularly those younger than she (who she perceives as being of lesser authority than she is), and shows a few uptight and snobbish personality traits (she enjoys showing off).

Olivia tells Clementine that she is bad luck, believing that she's holding Clementine and Ricca back. Now, I get that characters can react to different situations in different ways, but this is the best way for me to explain the gist of my issues with her characterization without spoiling: she doesn't read as Clementine, we've already done this arc, why couldn't we see something, oh I don't know, new? Because it is Walden, I expect the missing AJ (that I know nothing about except to read about it here as a key Clementine connection) to show up again and for it to end satisfyingly, but I can see all the one-starrers are already done with this.As friendship, rivalry, and romance begin to blossom amongst the group, the harsh winter soon reveals that the biggest threat to their survival might be each other. So I didn’t play the Walking Dead Telltale game and I have no idea who Clementine is or why anyone cares; I’m clearer now about who she is but remain baffled as to the caring part. The story falls flat as well, and every other review on here sums up why better than I could, but the summary should be a big hint. The greyscale scape is completely a change of pace for this artist, but it's fitting for the zombie apocalyptic world being shown. Clementine tries to calm the situation down and leave without conflict, but one of the girls, named Joy, holds Clementine at gunpoint.

Walden excels at character development and tying the present to moments of past trauma that splintered their world. I can’t recommend it to Walking Dead fans because if you don’t know who Clementine is, this probably wouldn’t do anything for you. The books are focused on an eight-year-old, artistic, but impulsive girl named Clementine, characterized by her flaming red curls. Despite steeling myself for Tillie Walden's zombie apocalypse, I was full of equal parts dread and hope on every single page -- I couldn't put Clementine down until I'd seen her terse, poignant journey through.A coming-of-age tale of survival written and illustrated by two-time Eisner award winner Tillie Walden (Spinning, On a Sunbeam). Fun-loving and understanding with his daughter, he enlists Clementine's assistance in fighting off the "Great Pigeon War" (finding a method of repelling the pigeons attracted to the stone statues molded into the building), which Clementine successfully resolves, and a celebration is held in her honor at the book's conclusion.

Clementine attempts to come with her, but Ricca tells her to stay because she doesn't want Olivia alone with Georgia.Despite saying she's coming around to it, Clementine is afraid on missing out on what else it out there. Olivia tells Clementine that Miss Morro already knows about her pregnancy and asks Clementine if she's ever heard of a cervix or uterus and that Morro told her her birth will happen in four or five months.

Ricca asks Clementine the name of her prosthetic again, only for Clementine to refuse to give it again, being upset that it's broken. Later, Clementine chops firewood, when Ricca approaches her and invites her to ride on the snowmobile. As unimpressed as I was with Walden’s comic (because of Spinning I hadn’t bothered looking at any of her other comics, even if one of them won an Eisner - I find awards rarely denote quality and tend to reward politics), I decided to check out her latest, Clementine, Book One, purely because it’s a Walking Dead spinoff (all things considered, I’m a fan of Robert Kirkman’s series - yes there was a lotta crap but also a lotta good).I picked this up because I love Clementine as a character and for me she was potrayed well, but a few things here fell a little flat for me. The book is more or a survival tale instead of a zombie horror book but that is what I have liked most about the Walking Dead universe. Clementine then confesses to Ricca that she loves her too and apologizes for not saying it sooner, saying she thought she had to make this place safe first before she could focus on their relationship. Amos greets Clementine and asks her where she is heading, she responds "north", which is where Amos is going as well. At that point, Miss Morro started keeping records and burying people and wants to do the same for those behind the wall.
