Here it is the last STotD in compendium 1! In my opinion the TV series is headed to a similar ending in the next part of season 3, but only time will tell!
With the growing threat of war, who knows what will happen in the seventh chapter of the Walking Dead?!???! Oh wait…I do. And now I’m going to tell you about it.
The first part of season 3 is over, and things are getting pretty intense! With a newborn to take care of and a growing case of insanity, Rick has a lot to worry about. In the comic book world, Lori has yet to give birth and Rick has lost his right hand. Guess no matter which universe you’re in, the life of Rick Grimes is a difficult one.
With the stability of the entire group and Rick Grimes himself falling under scrutiny, what else could possibly go wrong in the next chapter of the The Walking Dead? Will Michonne go crazy and kill everyone? Will Carol and Tyrese reconcile their differences? How on earth does Lori have enough food to sustain her pregnancy? Maybe we’ll get some answers in this chapter.
We reach an interesting point in the intersection of television and comic at this point. The TV series, as any one familiar with both forms of media will tell you, is moving at a much faster pace than the comic does. In addition it’s moving at a much faster pace than the TV has in the past. What does this mean for the future of the show? In my opinion nothing but good things can come of this. I think the writers realized how good the upcoming material was a decided to do crazy things like consolidate entire chapter into one single TV episode. Has it been working? Yes I believe it has been working quite well, and I’m really interested to see how far they get in comic land by the end of this season. The speed of season 3 does mean that I have more TV comparisons to make so lets get to it!
Hey it’s time for Chapter 3 of The Walking Dead!!! Wooo! I was genuinely excited to read this chapter, as it is the first one that goes on past the TV show…and now that i’ve read it…i’m even more excited to watch the new episodes. I was worried that I would feel that reading the comics completely ruined the show for me, as I’ve spoken with other readers who aren’t pleased with the way the show is going. However I feel that both the TV show and the comics are a delightful look at the logistics of post-zombieapocalyptic survival and that similarly to Fight Club they compliment each other well. The dramatic elements of a TV show are somewhat different than those utilized in a comic book, and so the big differences in storytelling are, I feel, overall justified for a TV audience. Anyway, back to the comic!
