How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television? When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something that we wanted? How long has it been since any of us really needed something that we wanted?

The world we knew is gone.

The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.

An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled - no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.

In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.

Collects issues #97-144 of the acclaimed zombie hit! (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads.)

Spoiler Warning: This review covers issues 97-144 of The Walking Dead comics. I don’t like spoilers, but with the nature of this kind of review, some spoilers of these issues and previous issues may be unavoidable. Read on at your own risk.

Note: So far, there are 157 issues of The Walking Dead comics published. They come in single issues, or in collected editions, such as volumes (6 issues each), books (12 issues each), and compendiums (48 issues each). This review is for Compendium 3, which contains issues 97-144.

Since there is so much to cover in this review, and also because I don’t like spoilers, I’m going to make this a mini review where I simply share some of my notes.

  • Venturing into new territory here. I have no idea what’s going to happen!
  • Oh wow. So now we know why Dwight has burns on the side of his face!
  • The Kingdom reminds me of the book The Girl Who Owned a City, since they’re in a school.
  • I like Jesus’s man bun.
  • Things have…changed.
  • I like Magna!
  • Yay for all the female leaders!
  • Crazy ending!

This one was mostly new territory, since it goes past where the show is currently. So it was fun to see what happened, and get a bit of an insight as to where the show might go. 4.5 stars.
