Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #132: The Longbook Hunters — The Walking Dead Vol. 4: The Heart’s Desire

 

Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. Over the course of their travels through comicdom, they have encountered numerous stories via the wonder of trade paperbacks and graphic novels. Once a month, Nick and Greg will review one of those collections in The Longbook Hunters. WALKING DEAD MONTH CONCLUDES! The boys end this year’s horror excursion with a look at a truly terrifying volume of Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s The Walking Dead comic book! After trashing last year’s collections, did the boys find anything to love in The Heart’s Desire? What do they make of Kirkman’s writing of women like Maggie, Michonne and Carol? What about the somewhat unique lack of transitions between scenes? Are the Hard-Traveling Fanboys just being haters?
