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 The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.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, the survivors are forced to finally start living. This volume follows our band of survivors as they set up a permanent camp inside a prison. Relationships change, characters die, and our team of survivors learn there's something far more deadly than zombies out there: each other. It is a reprint edition.

Sex. That is the name of today's theme. Creed, colour, gender, age are all explored as everyone is at it like rabbits. It might seem a little gratuitous at first but in an end of the world situation it is quite understandable. It's what people did before television and when you aren't running for your life then you need something to take your mind of the impending oblivion.
In addition to sex the secondary theme is policing your own. What happens when your fellow survivors start to cross lines? Can you really afford to start shooting the living in the head when it's all hands on deck? What sins can you forgive and is the end of the world a clean slate for the mistakes of your youth.
Once again it's all about the talking but there are a few good expressions that say more than words so the art isn't always playing second fiddle. There was one outstanding use of speech bubbles so Kirkman is innovating in all directions. This is a very mature work with a lot to think about and a huge body count. There is a great cliff hanger too. Once again this continues to be a strong Thumbs Up!

I'd like to say that this comic book literally sucked me into reading again like vortex sucks all around it with it's power.
My first order here was TWD v. 1-3 and i love this comics. I know that in 9/10 books are better than comics and that for sure is right in this case. I'm very picky about reading and before this i didn't read a lot but this one blew me away. It starts slow but when you step into you can't get out. Story is fantastic, there's many twists, character development is great as action is and there's also some background story. You simply can't miss with this one. For me it's only comic book which i read, beside manga. But i know that it's worth of every money and time!
About this volume - i can say just that it's action packed, with twist and great story like all other are and it's the beginning for great events to come. I won't say too much, but if you'll read it you'll see.
