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 that don’t know what has been going on in the outside world. They have been using the freezer to poop in, eating all they can eat out of the canned foods, and probably just swapping murder stories and giving each other pointers for when they get out.
But you can’t judge a book for what they got committed for, right?
Well, wrong and right.
See now someone is actually killing people in the prison. Is it Dexter, the big brood who already claimed the fact he killed his wife and her boyfriend? Or the drug addict Andrew who says he is the cause of the apocalypse? Probably not the tax fraud guy Thomas, though he does look a little creepy. wait! What about the peeper Axel who walks in on some of the girls showering so he can “hurry up and go back to his room before the image goes away”?
All this while trying to get “zombies” out of the prison they are trying to make a home.
Which brings me to my only disappointment: they have been using “zombie” instead of their made up ones like “roamers” “walkers” “lurkers”. It makes me sad.
Also, this is where RICKTATORSHIP starts to take off. His word or die. I feel like “thought a lot about _____ and he knows that ______ is the only way” is his signature line. Just fill in the blanks.
