7.5/10

Book_3

This was supposed to be one Walking Dead book per week to try and stave off the hunger for more episodes of the show, but then Christmas and a lot of new release titles got in the way. Apologies. 

I will try and keep these a spoiler free as possible, but readers should be aware that a review may mention spoilers from previous books in the series.

Each one of these books comprises twelve issues of the comic. 

Review of Book 1
Review of Book 2

As we rejoin our favourite survivors in the prison, they have just finished their umpteenth check of the grounds to make sure there are no more roamers or lurkers in the shadows, Carol and Lori have been raiding the library, and Glenn and Maggie have just found riot gear and weapons.

Just imagine how much easier that will make supply runs!

They see a helicopter passing overhead and are just trying to work out how they might be able to signal it, when it crashes. And Rick, Glenn, and Michonne set off to see if anyone survived the crash.

But someone else gets there first.

Who are these other people? Could this Woodbury place be as perfect as it seems? And is that Governor fellow really just a nice guy trying to keep his little town running smoothly, and his people entertained?

 

In this collection, we meet:

The Governor
Martinez
Dr. Stevens
Alice

 

This time around, readers will feel more invested than ever in the continued existence of Rick’s group of survivors. They’ll also feel more conflicted than ever as they urge characters to do things they wouldn’t normally dare contemplate in this real world of ours. The world of the Walking Dead is not ours, yet, but this book pushes the reader to examine how they might act in such situations, and how vengeful they might be.

This is a more action packed edition, and is surely only the start of our descent into zombie-induced madness.
