It's sad insofar as they're humans who were deprived of a decent world to live in and fell to the pressures of the apocalypse. Some of them are twisted by that and become genuinely evil people who take advantage of the chaos, and that unfortunately puts them at odds with the protagonists. It's sad to see people killing people, but as we all know that doesn't make it unnecessary. I know making light of that isn't particularly nice, but with all the dreariness the characters trudge through, I think a bit of humor is sometimes necessary. Thanks for reading.
Very welcome. And, no, I can see what you mean. Some, if not most, of the hunters I thought deserved to be killed, but one I really felt sorry for was, when Joel got impaled on that rebar and they have to get to Callus/out of the Colorado University, one guy comes in through the door and says "Those were my friends you killed, a$$h0le.........." I mean, yeah, he was a dick for shooting at Ellie, but it made me thin what he had been through with them, what his name was, who he really was, what moments he'd shared with his group like Ellie, Tess, henry, Sam, and Bill and with me, and- I don't know, it just made me start thinking. This is still a very good comic, though
Yeah. I think it's good to think like that, even if it's fiction. It shows a certain amount of humanity and self-awareness, and that's pretty important to keep intact, even when your fighting for your own survival. Keeping that sort of mindset ensures that you never kill or steal or what-have-you unless it's absolutely necessary, because you know that your actions can have very heavy effects on someone who's just as human as you, and that prevents you from becoming like the Hunters.
