    The dead were just the beginning - now it’s time for Rick Grimes and co. to take on an alien invasion! Uh… ok. So Robert Kirkman’s gone back to The Walking Dead world yet again (as we all know he’s going to keep doing for many more years to come) for this one-off tongue-in-cheek outing, Rick Grimes 2000. It’s basically a campy, knowing homage to ‘90s-style Image comics where all the characters are back but reimagined with robot suits and giant guns.

It’s basically a campy, knowing homage to ‘90s-style Image comics where all the characters are back but reimagined with robot suits and giant guns. Rick’s dressed like a Yellow Lantern and wielding a lightsaber, Michonne’s tooled up in a mech-suit, Eugene has a Doc Ock-style rig, and so on. There isn’t really a story, just a lot of over-the-top action as the cast blammo their way through zombies and aliens in what I’m sure is meant to be fun but really isn’t. It’s a very short read but I was still done with it long before the end - nothing about this one-note book is imaginative or compelling. Rick Grimes 2000 is a pointless fever dream of a comic that even the most ardent Walking Dead fans won’t be impressed with - don’t bother.

    Wow, this was fucking horrible. It's supposed to be one of those fun comics that's a little dumb, but it's sadly just extremely dumb and not all that fun. This story is a fully realized version of the bonus ending from The Walking Dead #75, acting as an extended look at the alien ending Kirkman "trolled" fans with back when the run first came out, but it probably should have just stayed a gag ending. This is just bad man. Not even Ryan Ottley's art can save this, even though it is stellar and ea Wow, this was fucking horrible.

This is just bad man. Not even Ryan Ottley's art can save this, even though it is stellar and easily the best part about this. It's just so fucking wordy, and none of those words are interesting. It could maybe be a little more bearable if the reader was intoxicated in some manner, but I sadly was not at any point when I read this, so I had to power my way through it completely sober, which just wasn’t fun. I borrowed this $20 hardcover from a buddy so I didn't have to pay for it (thankfully), but the fact Image is charging that much for 64 pages of this garbage is genuinely fucking embarrassing. Please don't buy this and skip this if you come across it, it wasn't even that long but it was a massive waste of my fucking time and energy. It took me almost two weeks to finish this because turning each page was dreadful, and the only thing with any merit in this entire book is Ryan Ottley's glorious art. Ottley's art pops on each page and the gore in here is gnarly, but Kirkman's shitty dialogue just drones on nonstop and grinds each page to a screeching halt. It's like an AI typed up this script. I would rather watch paint dry than attempt to open up this drivel again. Skip this one for sure.

    Rick Grimes 2000 collects material from Image Comics series Skybound X 1-5 written by Robert Kirkman with art by Ryan Ottley. Rick Grimes has battling zombies for years. He awakes from a coma to now find out that the remaining human population is battling aliens who are bringing the dead back to life and enslaving the human population. This book is blistering fast and not in a good way. Characters come and go in a matter of panels to never be seen or heard from again.

This book is blistering fast and not in a good way. Characters come and go in a matter of panels to never be seen or heard from again. The plot is meant to be taken as a joke, but it’s a one note joke that quickly loses its steam. Kirkman seems more interested in cramming as many cameos into the book as possible instead of coming up with any kind of remotely fun story. The redeeming factor of the book is Ottley’s art, but as good (and gory!) as it is, it still can’t save this book. As a big Walking Dead comic fan, I love getting small glimpses of The Walking Dead universe we have gotten since the end of the series: Here’s Negan, Negan Lives, and Alien. And I will be eagerly awaiting Clementine. But this was a huge let down.

    So this is like…an elseworlds Walking Dead I guess where aliens are involved and alien technology and so on. It sort of reads like the kind of fanfic that I don’t love where basically characters and things from The Walking Dead are referenced, and they all have their analogues here, but they are essentially the same. Negan is there, he’s essentially the same, and he’s got a bat, and so on. I thought, towards the end as things got goofy, that this was going to be some clever story within a story, So this is like…an elseworlds Walking Dead I guess where aliens are involved and alien technology and so on.

Negan is there, he’s essentially the same, and he’s got a bat, and so on. I thought, towards the end as things got goofy, that this was going to be some clever story within a story, like a character would be telling this story of the zombie apocalypse to another character or something, it’s obviously not true, but there you have it. Like maybe kids are saying what their parent s told them, so we’re seeing these out there ideas and stories based on what parents told their kids about the whole zombie apocalypse thing. Then I fell in love with my own explanation, and when it turned out to not be true I was disappointed. Let that be a lesson: just read passively, kids.

    Los zombies de las galaxias. Son los Muertos Vivientes de Kirkman juntados con alienígenas, espadas lásers, robots, monopatines voladores y todo lo que puedas imaginar. Además se suma a guiños a distintos personajes como Cable o Doctor Octopus. Un ejercicio muy divertido y gustoso de leer, lleno de locura y zombies. Y alienígenas. Y ver al elenco de los Muertos Vivientes convertido en todo tipo de cosas. P.D.: Muertos Vivientes = Walking Dead

    I always complain about pacing in contemporary comics, because it’s always too fast and too slipshod, but this, this is unhinged beyond anything I’ve known, so zoomy and reliant on insane choices that it doesn’t even have time to fall apart. Even only being a fleeting fan of the comics and show, I understood all the references, and was along for the wild ride. Total surprise. Bought this for my mom (a fan of the series) and am glad I was able to borrow it after.

    Exactly the level of cash grab silliness I imagined. Rick Grimes wakes up to discover that the zombie plague has been complicated by an alien invasion. Many of the characters from the main series recur for at least cameos. It's fun. It's dumb. It's in full color. And it's the original art team behind The Walk---I'm sorry, wrong Kirkman property, it's the original art team behind Invincible: Ultimate Collection, Vol. 1...ok, not the ORIGINAL original team.

Ottley didn't start his run until issue #8, but that's like MOST of the Invincible run. If you crave tangental Walking Dead books, this should amuse you. But it's non-canon, waaaaaaaaay out of continuity, so it's by no means necessary if you're just a casual Walking Dead fan.

    I didn't like this much. It felt like a self-indulgent in-joke on Robert Kirkman's part. Clearly we have reached the point that The Walking Dead can print whatever they like and people, like this sucker here, will still buy it because we're so invested in the universe. Rick Grimes has a kind of sci-fi blood-spattered action vision in which everyone who has died in the main series is now in a futuristic universe, battling aliens with high-tech mecha-suits and huge guns. It sounds fun! But it isn't I didn't like this much. It felt like a self-indulgent in-joke on Robert Kirkman's part.

It sounds fun! But it isn't. It's cool to see characters who are long gone show up again, and I always love Ryan Ottley's art, but the story is thin and the humour feels out of place in the Walking Dead universe, even in a strange little offshoot like this. It's a joke taken way too far and made boring in the process. This gets a hardback release, but the fantastic Negan Lives and the colour reprints are still nowhere to be seen in a collected format. Crazy.

    Something about Rick grimes looking like green lantern mixed with Luke Skywalker got me really excited and I bought this without looking into it much. I gotta say I was pretty disappointed. If it wasn't for all the cursing I'd say it was written for children. The story was lazy, had no depth, and was too short. Even though I never finished the walking dead, I thought it was well done and I enjoyed it. I felt like this did not do it justice.

    How do you say cash grab without saying cash grab? By milking the living bejesus out of it! This reads like a wanna be superhero fantasy that was passed through the hands of fifth graders. They understand heroes but not 100%. I saw this at work and got excited. Then, I took it home. My eyes were stuck rolling in my head. Characters never really die, Rick is unstoppable and all the guys you hated are back with their shitty shit talking.

    I've read every issue of The Walking Dead so my hatred of the character Rick Grimes goes pretty deep. I know every writer has a surrogate character they write that they wish they could be. Rick is that for Kirkman. I didn't hate this however. The art is 90% of the stars rating. I could appreciate how over the top this got - because I find everything about Grimey over the top. Will zombie genre ever recover from Kirkman? Probably not in our lifetime... I've read every issue of The Walking Dead so my hatred of the character Rick Grimes goes pretty deep.

    There are things borrowed from many places, e.g. from Masters of The Universe and Marvel. It helps if the reader is fluent with that kind of popular culture. AND this comic will definitely not work, if you haven’t read the original comic series. And even if you have: reading this is going to be a struggle. Also, this hard cover collection is really short. It is less than 50 pages. So it is fast and superficial and tries very hard to be sort of a silly. But I bought it, read it and enjoyed it.

    A fun non-canon idea with awesome art that sadly descends into "hey, remember this character?" and not much else. There's very little substance here, and you'd be hard pressed to find even an avid TWD fan that would pay £18 for a hardcover copy containing 64 pages. Avoid unless you're really desperate for more TWD, or you have no respect for your own time.

    [2] Sometimes even fun only because of the main series and its characters, this fan-fiction level writing leads to an amateur story that goes nowhere and seems to struggle to explain its own existence., which is never a good sign.

    Don’t waste your time on this obvious cash grab. I get this is like a campy “What If?” Story but it’s neither clever nor nonsensical fun. Just some dick jokes, surprisingly mediocre art, and just bad writing.
