The Walking Dead, Vol. 3

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: there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.

Reviews The Walking Dead, Vol. 3

  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
  • Sean Barrs the Bookdragon
    YOU KILL. YOU DIE. These are simple words, though they’re my favourite phrase so far. Every society needs rules, and it shows how desperate this one is to create such a brutally necessary one. If you want to live under Rick’s protection, that’s the pact you take. If you kill another group member, if you kill a friend, you, too, will die. Seems fair enough in this world, but nothing is that simple. As soon as this line was delivered I knew t...

    This was the best volume so far!

    The bloody, putrid, rotting corpse of soap opera goodness that is The Walking Dead graphic novels is in its full balls out glory in the third collection Safety Behind Bars.Lori is pregnant with Shane's baby -- And in case you don't know, Shane is the former best friend of Rick, Lori's husband. Not only that, though, Lori and Rick's son Carl shot Shane dead. Not only that, though, Shane was buried after his death, and Rick realizes over the course...

    Unpopular opinion; I’m not a fan of the tv show. The comics are growing on me though especially being a fan of his other series
  • Tina Haigler
    Review to come :)

    I don't know what it is about this series. I don't find it to be exceptional in any way and yet I keep buying the next volume because I feel like a zombie read and I figure I'm following these characters already....They aren't bad reads, but there's just very little 'new' in them and there seems to be a cycle forming with these volumes that leads to less character growth.I'm not sure if it is the art, the writing, or a combination of both, but I ...

    Man, I thought Lori was annoying on the show but she's even worse in these. More detailed review to come.
  • Sarah
    Things are really getting crazy now! This series is so good! I LOVE the covers by Tony Moore, they are brilliant. I still wish the comic was in colour (yes I know I've said it before) but I feel like it could have brought a lot more to the comics. I mean the covers are in colour and they're spectacular. I have a thing for pretty colours that work together. Anyway, I also love the story. You think things can't get any worse for the group but Rober...

    Fatigue strikes on volume 3. This isn’t the grovels fault but my own for trying to read this whilst watching the show simultaneously. The show is just a shower of shit now and that has tarnished any opinion of anything related right now. I’ll take a break before hitting up the next one.
  • Kristen
    5/5The Skinny:The same crew…sort of…is back. They believe that they have found the perfect place to live; space for everyone, food, and best of all, no zombies! But, as is almost always the case with The Walking Dead, nothing ever goes quite as planned.My Thoughts:I will just cut to the chase – Safety Behind Bars has been my favorite. I’m kind of surprised that after three zombie-filled volumes, that these graphic novels still deliver big...
  • Becky
    Ohhhhh snippity snap! That was intense! There were some serious curve-balls thrown in this volume, and some huge reveals that have enormous consequences. I dunno if that facial protection I mentioned in my status update would really make a difference after all, if you know what I'm saying. I actually think that this has been my favorite volume so far. The characters are familiar enough to me that I can identify with them so much better, and the s...

    YOU KILL , YOU DIE So simple rulethose are the rules now xD , it was the best volume so far
  • Vanessa
    4.5 stars. This was by far the best volume in the series so far. Not only do the characters manage to stay in one spot for the length of the volume (unlike the previous two), but there was a lot more development with various characters. I love the storyline of Rick and his crew getting to know and having to live with the other prisoners, and there were a lot of shocking moments and heartbreak throughout. The action sequences as well were drawn in...
  • Sam Quixote
    Volume 3 of The Walking Dead might be the bleakest, bloodiest and most miserable in the series so far - and the first two volumes were pretty damn miserable! This is a book where the dead are dug out of their graves just to be shot in the head, and that’s not even counting the butchered children or the suicide pacts! So the group have made it to a prison which is infested with zombies but, once cleared, could be a safe haven for them. Inside ar...

    WrensReads Review:So I am reading the first compendium again so I can read the second and the third. This time, I will rate them by the volume that they are.WrensReads Review:The third volume is my favorite so far. Rick and the gang are cleaning out the prison to make it into a home. Rick swallow his pride and tells Hershel and his family to come live in the prison with them because it is safer there.Or is it?You see, there are prisoners there th...
  • Reese Copeland
    I really enjoyed this volume. I can't remember how close it was to the show, but found the story amazing.
  • Justin
    This one felt a little slower until the end, and it definitely feels like some scenes are added in for pure shock value. Looks like their journey is going to continue so I'll be along for the ride to see where they end up next. They should probably get rid of some people, too. Travel light, less characters taking up space. People are freaking out and having these crazy mood swings all the time. You would think the zombie apocalypse happened our s...
  • Brendon Schrodinger
    Volume 2 concluded with the confrontation with Herschel and his family and the gang leaving with no food and no direction. The final panel had them come across a prison.So I choose to call Volume 3 'The Walking Dead in da Clink'.There are lots of great ideas and themes brought forward in this issue. The main thing is an exploration of criminality in the past compared to in the zombie apocalypse. The prison is not quite deserted; lots of zombies o...

    It's official - comic book Lori is far more annoying than tv Lori.And this was the best moment so far.
  • Darren Hagan
    The group arrive at the prison and start to make a home there, and start to feel safe. How can they be safe behind bars when the biggest threat there isn't the living dead, but the living?...*dramatic music*This issue is a bit of a turning point for the group. In the first 2 issues, the group basically trusts anyone who comes along and gives them the benefit of the doubt. By the end of Safety Behind Bars, they learn to not be so trusting with out...
  • Rebecca
    This was insane??! It was so action packed that it actually felt like an episode of TWD! By far the best yet.

    Die Gruppe um Sheriff Rick Grimes wird auf der neuerlichen Suche nach einem Zuhause fündig. Ein ehemaliges Hochsicherheitsgefängnis scheint mitten in der Zombieapokalypse der perfekte Zufluchtsort zu sein.Allerdings will dieses erst von den Untoten gesäubert werden und außerdem gibt es auch noch einige Insassen die sich weiterhin bester Gesundheit erfreuen.Es drohen Gefahren sowohl von außerhalb als auch innerhalb der Gruppe der Überlebende...
  • Anthony Chavez
    I really liked this volume, the story arc shifts from the zombies and the fear of safety to the prison and the people as they take shelter behind bars to stay safe.This volume is so bloody and yet none of is is from zombies. We see the group get emotional and raw as someone has been killing off their own. We learn that you don't have to be bitten by a zombie to change, and we learn Rick and Lori have gone crazy cliche, man the mood swings were an...
  • Maddie
    Summary and review of this volume:All the disliked characters die, and I'm completely ok with it.
  • Kimberley doruyter
    oke this is way better then the show.
  • T.W. Brown
    When I heard that The Walking Dead graphic novel series was in development for a series on AMC (home of my absolute favorite, Breaking Bad). I was elated. Then reality sank in. I was still stinging from what had been done to the Terry Gooodkind novel series, The Sword of Truth. My mind spun, prompting me to dig out the series, wondering where the problems might occur. No surprise, the volume that solidifies the series as truly great, the one that...
  • Sooraya Evans
    Safety behind bars? I don't think so.A lot of gruesome deaths here.A psycho is on the loose and the prisoners are suspects by default. Lori gets more annoying than ever. Rick snaps at her and that made me smile.It's also hinted that everyone is in fact infected. You die, you turn. Getting bitten is not necessary.
  • Dorin
    Now it gets better and better. The prison part is really interesting, and I finally see a main character that starts to be interesting. When I finished this part I was really looking for the next one - so yes, it really is far away from the first issue.The drawing starts getting a bit better, a bit smarter, and it starts to communicate better the atmosphere.
