After just finishing The Walking Dead book 2, I picked up The Walking Dead book 3 and couldn't put it down once again - pretty much finishing it off in one sitting. It's not that short, it's just that good!
Playing off of Book 2, where the theme was more man Vs. man over man Vs. zombie, Book 3 continues that trend introducing even more new characters into the mess that add a whole new level of complication to the lives of the characters we've come to know by this point. There's also a lot more zombie action, though it continues to be more of a background issue behind the character driven story.
As I've said in my other reviews, and I don't see this changing with Book 4 coming next, getting this series is a must for fans of great reads. Kirkman knows how to build characters and various twists, and the art continues to pull it all together well.
