Ahh, zombies. I loved the first hardback in this series, and I couldn't wait to start reading its sequel. I definitely wasn't disappointed. The story becomes more layered and convoluted in this book, and the relationships amongst the people are becoming increasingly tangled.The ragtag group stumbled upon a prison at the end of the last book, and this one deals with them settling into their new home. Four new people are introduced as well - all prisoners who have survived by being locked in the cafeteria since the outbreak hit. There is murder (and the hazy gray line between justified killing), love (and cheating), hope, despair, suspense, racism, and, of course, plenty of zombies. It's a great slice of humanity.As previous reviewers have mentioned, the art really decreased in quality in this collection, when compared to the first hardback. I'm not sure if it was because the artists were rushed or if the artists were trying to convey that the characters are becoming more rough around the edges and gradually losing touch with their own humanity. Things are getting very, very rough for the survivors, and several of them are starting to lose touch with their former, pre-zombie-apocalypse selves.

Kirkman is great at plot and cliffhangers. Don't start reading this series if you don't want to feel like you have to keep reading it forever. You just can't stop. I have the same gripe as I had with the first collection- the dialogue can be pretty bad. If I'm talking to someone, I don't feel the need to say their name every other sentence. There are also some minor spelling errors. Other than that, this is exceptional zombie fare.

The group led by Rick have found a prison to secure themselves against the Walking Dead. But life is not peaches and cream. Some members of the group die, by zombies or humans or even by their own hand. Michonne shows up and asks for refuge, and Rick is voted out of the leadership because of some drastic actions he has been forced to take. The writing is notable for delving into the ethics and reality of the hard choices that a Zombie apocalypse would bring about, and thus the series is far more textured and complex that the various movies that only deal with Zombieland at its beginning.

After finding a prison the group hopes that their major problems surviving will end. They have shelter, food, and some semblance of safety. However, once the zombies are removed from the equation the group is still far from safe. The story line is more intense and the stakes are raised in the second installment of this zombie series. The limits of human survival are pushed when it is not the walking dead that are the imminent threat, but the person standing next to you.

Seven out of ten.

The remaining survivors find refuge in a prison. However, living together may prove more difficult than living with the undead...

Collecting trade paperback Volumes 3 & 4 (comic books 13-24) this is a great story of life amongst the zombies. How can Robert Kirkman possibly top what came before? I don¿t know. But he does it again, here. What¿s worse ¿ the zombie threat, or the threat the survivors pose to each other? You¿ll have to read the million shades of gray in this edition of the zombie classic to find out! Kirkman is writing a Modern Zombie Classic, that really about the true nature of humanity. And human frailties are very present in this installment. If there¿s a god in Hollywood, he should be making Walking Dead movies, right now.
