This is the second 12 issue collection of the series, and is just as good. No I take that back, this thing just keeps getting better.

The world is still in chaos, the survivors in prison, but they put themselves there to live a better life. But everything isn't better for long. There's issues of trust, issues of ego. The rules of their old world don't work in this new one, but they're reluctant to let it all go. Bonds are formed, friendships tested as enemies both living and dead are all around. There seems to be no end in sight for these survivors.

The novel is extremely graphic, still black and white, but no less horrifying. The details taken with the zombies, are amazing. Their limbs are twisted and rotting, their eyes vacant. And the living are just as good, if not better, their expressions genuine, their bodies in proportion. I'm not sure how the television show is going to be able to stack up against the books in capturing the raw emotions and wtf moments, but I can't wait to find out.
