The Walking Dead is all about the living, the people who struggle to retain their humanity in the face of the unspeakable. So what does that mean? What good is being human when you're no longer the dominant species on the planet? And what's really left to hold on to? The Walking Dead is an examination of all those questions and more. -- John Hogan, The Graphic Novel Reporter
My recommendation is if you are a fan of the Walking Dead tv series, and you feel you want to read the largest chunk of the collected graphic novels in the lowest price per "chunk" format... pick up this compendium! -- squidoo.com

If you are a fan of the show and haven't read this, I will warn you that there are substantial differences. It is as if a drunk person explained the plot of the comic books to the screenwriter in a loud bar, and them the screenwriter wrote the show from memory a month later. This is to say that the 'highlights' from the comics made it to the show, but it is still a different story.
People are on here trying to review this with deep literary analysis techniques, as if this were Shakespear or Proust or something. This is a comic about zombies. There are many like it, but this is the best one.
If you like the show, you will like the comics. I promise. They complement each other, but are different enough to warrant spending time on both.
Do they not have people for quality control? Sigh...
The book arrived to me with a torn and bent cover, but that's not so much my concern, as long as there are no ruined or missing pages. Shipping came on time i suppose. there was a little tracking issue where they said the item was delivered but really wasn't. Anyway! I love TWD show so I've always wanted to read the comic, especially with the intro of neegan this season, i just HAD to know what happens next. So I've been reading the comic from a crappy website but now i have access to issues 94-144 and i couldn't be any less happier. But with the size of this godly book, it feels like there's a whole lot more than just those issues.
The story is great! since issue 1, it only got better. having a collection of chapters is like reading 1 long book which is great. ill probably wait for the next compendium instead of buying single issues. The price for this was great. I remember wanting the 1st 2 compendiums and i believe they were $50.
There's not much to review upon without spoiling the story so I'm just gonna end my review here with a JUST BUY IT and READ it! Because, this IS worth the buy. I'm already half way through the book like 10minutes in. I can't stop reading, i want to know more and already I'm hating kirkman for the freakin deaths of people i loved seeing in the story. But, that's what keeps the story rolling.
Story aside, great art! I really loved the gorey detail and negan's group--really frightening!
Anyhow, if you enjoyed 1 and 2, which you most def should have, then that awesomeness just continues here in 3 (or dare I say, it gets better). I can't say to much, cause you know how Walking Dead goes! There are lots of great twists and turns, and interesting stuff that happens in here. There gets to be a point where you think "what else can they do with this concept" but there is clearly no shortage of ideas with the great Robert Kirkman! I will say they introduce a character that you will love to hate (HATE HATE HATE).
Amazing art throughout, as expected.
All in all, fantastic read, and if you love the Walking Dead, and have read the others, I cannot recommend this enough.
