Introducing one of the most vicious villains in the Walking Dead universe. Great read.

The Governor made me so uncomfortable throughout the entire comic... It got a little too uncomfortable for me with Michonne, almost stopped reading. But I persevered and was thankful I did.
Is it wrong to think he'll get his just desserts?

WOW- didn't see that coming in this episode. Everyone talks about the Governors character- now I know why.

After Volume 4 I wasn't sure where the storyline was going (and not too impressed with that one). Now it's exciting again, Can't wait to see where it goes next. Gruesome.
