WOW! I continue to be amazed by how great this series is. I imagined going slow reading this latest HC book 3. A chapter here, a chapter there... usually reserved for the duration of my train rides only (to and from work). After I got off the train and arrived home, I couldn't stay away. I had to finish this story. So, I didn't move from my couch until I was finished. All I can say is, whoever is debating reading this series, do yourself a favor and start now. My only reservation about reading the Hardcover editions is that it takes so long for the next ones to come out.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The third hardcover collection of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead finds former cop Rick Grimes and his crew of survivors having made their prison home zombie-free and completely settling in to their surroundings. Things are pretty much okay until they notice a helicoptor in the sky crashing in the distance. Soon enough, Rick, Michonne, and Glen are lead to a small, hidden community run by a sadistic madman calling himself the Governor. He has plans for Rick, Glen, and especially Michonne, as we witness what is perhaps the best to come from Kirkman on the series so far. What is contained here is by far the most violent and disturbing sequences to be seen in The Walking Dead so far, and only furthers the tried and true notion that in a zombie outbreak, the most terrifying aspects aren't the zombies, but the survivors and what they have become in a new world. If you've been following the series, the third hardcover collection of The Walking Dead will not disappoint, and as usual, you'll be salivating for more once you reach the last page of the book. All in all, Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead only gets better and better, and the proof of that can be seen right here.

The story in this volume picks up with Rick Grimes and the rest of the survivors established in a prison and living reasonably well. As they continue working to improve their living situation, they see a helicopter in the air and then it crashes a few miles away. Rick, Michonne, and Glenn take a car to see if there are survivors in the crash. They find that someone else has beaten them to the crash site so they set off in search of whoever has been there. Thrilled to learn of more survivors, their hopes are soon dashed as they learn that the "Governor" of the walled community is a sadistic, psychotic who enjoys using torture and murder to get what he wants. Rick and the others are put through hell and face certain death if they can't escape.

Book 3 reprints issues 25-36 of the ongoing comic book series. The same material can also be found reprinted in the paperback compilations The Walking Dead Vol. 5: The Best Defense and The Walking Dead, Vol. 6: This Sorrowful Life. The trend of focusing more on conflict between humans that began with the last book is even more prevalent here. The Governor is truly demented and is at least as big a threat as the zombie hordes shuffling around. The scenes between he and Michonne are especially brutal, and some of it is pretty gory. Fortunately, the very worst of the physical damage is not depicted graphically although enough is that this is not for the squeamish. There aren't many opportunities for laughter and smiles in this story, it's a pretty intense portrayal of what can happen when people face extreme dangers.

Format: Hardcover
Most of the folks here already know that The Walking Dead saga is a compilation of stories by Robert Kirkman that expand on the story that is well know to any zombie movie fan. The main story. The one started in earnest by George Romero in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead [and was later remade in 1990 (the version that I prefer) by Tom Savini (with Romero oversight)].

Book 3 is the combination of The Walking Dead volumes 5 & 6 and it continues the story of Police Officer Rick Grimes and his band of normal-world-refugees across a world suddenly infected by a Walking Dead sickness..

In The Walking Dead Book 2, the group finds a new home after a perilous Georgia countryside journey in The Walking Dead Book 1. The home that they find in Book 2 was used to keep the bad locked in when the world was normal, but now in Book 3 this new home will hopefully keep the bad out. Because venturing out into The New World is dangerous. Outside the gates of the new home awaits unfathomable chaos and horror; hordes of the undead, along with other survivors in desperate situations that do the unthinkable to stay alive (or entertained).

Book 3 (mainly the second half) is much less about zombies and more about what happens to society, its morals, laws and standards when government is lost and the planet becomes mostly uninhabitable. There's real, heartfelt emotion in The Walking Dead series combined with believable scenarios.
