As our heroes settle down to the task of reclaiming a living-space, Kirkman introduces themes of right and wrong, law and order, and how best to retain a sense of humanity whilst society is crumbling.

I don’t know if this series is changing, or if it’s just me. I didn’t like this volume as much as the others. While I still miss the illustrations of Tony Moore, preferring them to those of Charlie Adlard, I don’t think that this is quite it.As the series progresses, the lights dim more and more. It gets darker, and the zombies cease to be the enemies within the pages. Further, as the characters grow more desperate for survival, the villains grow more villainous, and the heroes grow less heroic. It’s this decline, I feel, that makes me less and less intrigued to read the next volume.While I know the staple villain in any zombie epic is not the undead, but rather, the people fallen on desperate times, I suppose that following such a story is less of an emotional commitment when reading a book or watching a movie. You don’t get to know the characters as well before they’re plucked away by careless actions of people who should know better.The series is well written, as far as zombie comic books can go. But sometimes, good writing of sad content can do more harm than good.

This instalment was a good continuation and I found it more enjoyable than the last book. Lots of development of the characters and the pace is fast and exciting. The ending really makes you eager to continue reading.

**Spoiler Alert** Ok, I have to say this one was tons better than the second one.The artwork was still cool. Their was a bit of mystery to the killing of two girls.So far, I think I like volume one the best. I haven't read the rest in the series, but hope to soon.
