It is decided that in order to survive... every person at the camp should have guns. As it is, they don't have enough to go around and the only place to get more guns is the city, but it means certain death to go into the city. Is Rick crazy enough to risk his life for the good of the camp?

    САЩ е територия на супергероите. Ако комикс, в който няма и помен от тях вземе да се превърне в хит – това говори много за заглавието. И не ще и дума, че „Живите мъртви” на Робърт Къркман и Тони Муур е истинско явление, и то още преди Франк Дарабонт да адаптира поредицата на екран. Все пак трябва да сме благодарни на едноименния сериал на AMC за пиковата популярност на комикса „Живите мъртви”, както и на „Студио Арт Лайн” за превода и издаването на първите броеве у нас!

    Добрите хора от озон ми подариха комикс, защото знаят, че аз такова нещо сама няма да си купя :D Противно на очакванията ми, всъщност ми хареса, въпреки че знам историята от сериала. Харесаха ми рисунките. Бях изненадана да видя как изглеждат Глен и Лори. И все пак ще се огранича само до подарените комикси. :)

    *3.75 Really good issue! I liked this more than #3, but I really hate how women are portrayed. I think it gets better, if the show is true to the series, but I forgot how much I hated that aspect!

    Rick tells Shane about his doubts, staying as close to the city as they are but Shane dismisses them. Rick decides if they have to stay they all need to be armed so he and Glenn head to the city to get guns. Rick and Glenn ask Jim where the closest gun store is and to their dismay they find it far into the city. The two men decide to go anyway and on the way Glenn tells Rick about how Jim got out of the city. Jim's family had acted as a human shield for Jim and he saw them get ripped apart as he Rick tells Shane about his doubts, staying as close to the city as they are but Shane dismisses them. Rick decides if they have to stay they all need to be armed so he and Glenn head to the city to get guns. Rick and Glenn ask Jim where the closest gun store is and to their dismay they find it far into the city. The two men decide to go anyway and on the way Glenn tells Rick about how Jim got out of the city. Jim's family had acted as a human shield for Jim and he saw them get ripped apart as he escaped. Rick has an idea to keep the undead away, he smears blood from a dead zombie all over his and Glenn's body. Rick's idea works and they are not bothered by the zombies as they walk to the gun store. Finding a shopping cart and filling it they head back to the camp but it begins to rain and washes the blood away from them. Running out of the city Rick gets bitten but his leather jacket protects him. As Lori waits in the rain for Rick, Shane tries to comfort her and talks about a night they shared but Lori tells him that was a mistake and now that Rick is back he needs to let it go. Tensions rise between Shane and Rick and its starting to affect the rest of the group. And the one thing I really, really was hoping was only going to be in the TV series I'm finding originally started in the comics. I'm referring to the fact of gutting a walker so that they can get the stink on them to blend in. Oh course, seeing Glenn be sick was kinda funny in the comics. It made me feel sorry for him but laugh at the same time. I really enjoy this issue and I'm surprised by it as well. Just when I think the series went and added something that wasn't in the comics, BOOM it shows up. The tank! Right after Rick's plan of walker stink works they just stroll down the road to the gun store and along the way...tank! Another credit to my fandom to Tony Moore! Around page 14 or so, the actual tank page...the detail. I know I keep saying it but seriously. If you don't buy the comics fine but pick up an issue or graphic novel and thumb through it a sec! DETAIL! You can see the flies buzzing around the corpses and walkers! Even Rick and Glenn have them. You can't see the flies on the two so much on the tank page, but its noticeable when they finally find the gun store and get a cart to go shopping. The only complaint and its not really even that but at the end.... Did Lori's face grow longer? I mean I know she was sad about Rick leaving to go off and do something again, and I know Shane was hounding her about their "special one night" but I think you can actually see her face grow longer over three frames! It's kind of funny! Besides the awesome issue and detail and artistic value, I should probably have mentioned it before now, but the lettering on this issues are amazing. Robert Kirkman, of course, understands the story more than anyone since he created it, but to actually see his lettering brings highlights to the story that may not have been there before. I love how the larger lettering really captures the sounds and the double speech bubbles highlights the importance of that one word or phrase in it. HURRY! It wouldn't be the same if Kirkman just bold faced it. Bold facing and double bubbles really make you pay attention world of hurt they are going to be in if they don't hurry or whatever it is in the bubble. Being clear and legible is a plus as well. Some times, I have come across a few comics where the lettering and the colors don't mix very well and you either can't read it cause it bleeds with the background, or the words can be one of five different ones. This whole comic didn't really happen in the series. The series characters used a walker to go and get a vehicle, not weapons, to drag the other walkers away from the building so that they could leave and make it back to camp. The "gun shopping" kind of happened. They didn't go to a store but went back to the tank in the middle of the road to get Rick's bag of weapons from his old precinct. The rain scene did happen in that while Rick and Glenn were making their way to a vehicle to drive the walkers away, the rain completely washed away the stink. And as far as Shane and Lori talking in the rain go.... well, it wasn't raining, but they talk/yell at each other several times. In fact, more than one time, Lori has to tell Shane to leave her and her family alone and that what they had didn't and doesn't matter anymore. There are of course things I love and hate between comics and TV series and they are to numerous right now to list all in one sitting, but I do in fact really love this issue. There is so much action in this issue and so much more dramatic detail. Ripples in the water when Glenn drops the guns, the shading and blurred vision of walkers while the downpour of rain occurs, the tank page, but the one that gets me the most excited is the story line. It is such a small thing in this issue that I am almost embarrassed to say it, but the little change of Rick and Glenn putting the walker stink on for the guns made more sense to me than them putting it on and going through all the vomiting and near hits from biting for a vehicle that may or may not have keys and may or may not run in the show.... I really can't explain it, but to me weapons would have been worth more of the risk than pulling walkers away from a building that was going to be over run eventually in the first place. But hey that's just my two cents. Anyways.... I recommend as always to fans of The Walking Dead Universe, zombies, dystopian and apocalypse genres.

    Being a huge fan of the show, I wanted to see how the original writing started and how the show writers followed and deviated from the comics. My dislikes were that the comics are much more crude, crass, and unnecessarily violent. I did like the change in relationships and how people worked together differently, and the comics have a different creepiness feel than you get watching it on TV. Overall, I prefer the show, and probably will not finish out the comic book series.

    Esta mierda es buena, me está enganchando bien, y eso que por ahora es bastante similar a la serie. Va rápido, mantiene la tensión, el dibujo es genial... ¡¡y sin conversaciones en voz baja!!

    Más interesante que el tercer tomo del cómic, en este Glenn y Rick van de regreso a la ciudad de Atlanta en la que hay cientos de mordedores en busca de armas es casi un absoluto suicidio , si no llega a ser por la genial idea de Rick no saldrían de allí con vida. La parte final de Lori con Shane casi me ha dado igual. Un 8 por la parte Rick-Glenn.

    I must say, The Walking Dead is great even without Daryl Dixon (saw the TV show first, now reading the books) and I'm liking Rick as a character more than in the show too. His quick development is something I really like. I guess the comics are still better than the TV shows too, eh?

    This has been my favorite out of The Walking Dead graphic novels so far. In some ways I really enjoyed reading this yet I also like how this was adapted to the tv series. I think it brings out the best of Rick (creativity) and Glenn (willingness to help).

    I enjoyed this comic more as it was mostly Rick and Glenn. This issue was about them heading into Atlanta to get some guns, more action with the zombies ... ahem, excuse me, the Walkers, a lil' back story about Jim & Lori still being annoying. x I enjoyed this comic more as it was mostly Rick and Glenn.

    I loved this issue, just like I loved the others. Shane going on and on about waiting for the government to rescue them, is starting to annoy me. He and everyone else have no proof that the government is even still active, much less that someone from the government is out trying to locate survivors. I agree with Rick that they should move camp and go somewhere safer. As I said in my review of the last issue, I do not like that they are still out in the open where anything can happen.

I agree with Rick that they should move camp and go somewhere safer. As I said in my review of the last issue, I do not like that they are still out in the open where anything can happen. I feel like they are leaving themselves open to danger that could be avoided. Also, Lori's whining about Rick leaving, is getting on my nerves. She should know her husband by now and know that he would want to do anything he could to help protect the camp, even if that means putting himself in danger. The part where Rick and Glenn put the zombie bits on themselves to mask their smell, makes me wanna puke. I could never imagine doing that myself if I were in their situation. It was a terrible idea for ony Rick and Glenn to go out and look for guns. I would have felt a little better if at least one or two more people had gone with them. They could have taken Andrea and Dale with them when they went to look for guns and I think things would have gone better for Rick and Glenn if they had. Another thing, I know Rick and Glenn had a gun or maybe more than one when they went to look for more guns, but I feel like they should have brought some of those shovels that were mentioned in earlier comics. I mean, it's not as good as a gun, but it's still some sort of weapon. When Rick was freaking out over the zombie that had been behind him, I had figured it had bitten him and was worried that Lori or Shane would have to shoot him in the head when he and Glenn returned to camp. My favorite part in this issue is when Lori tells Shane that them sleeping together was a mistake. I still do not like either of their characters, but I did like that Lori made it clear things were over between her and Shane.

    Now one begins to see how Rick can be the leader of the group and not Shane. Sure, Shane thinks far ahead, but not far enough. Also I think he's averse to change. Rick is a natural at taking charge — if a bit sexist (as a girl I think I would know how to fight, especially for my life, thank you very much) — but his heart is in the right place. I like his pragmatism (and very much dislike Lori's selfishness and brattiness).

I like his pragmatism (and very much dislike Lori's selfishness and brattiness). I mean, look, after three days at camp, Rick has already figured out three important things: one, that they couldn't stay long at the campsite; two, that they need more weapons if they are to defend themselves and fight their way out; and three, how the zombies are differentiating the living from the undead. All these people — you think they would've spend some time dissecting the situation. I like the fact that Rick accepts the inevitability that they are going to be attacked, and has already started thinking about what to do when that happens, instead of just trying to prevent things from happening. He wings it sometimes (I don't think anyone, at least before this issue came out, has meditated before over the thought of rubbing zombie guts all over one's body to blend in) but you've got to give the man credit for sticking to his guns. /First read 23 December 2009.

    Oh, I bloody, goddamned knew it. Shane and Lori did it. They thought Rick was a goner, and they banged. Rick doesn't know yet, because he went back to Atlanta to get guns with Glenn. They almost didn't make it out alive, but smearing zombie blood on your skin makes the zombies think you're one of them. It's almost like Roald Dahl's "Witches" that can smell clean children, but not dirty ones. I wonder how long THIS is going to go on before we find resolution.

    Because a gun bag wasn't dropped in Atlanta, Rick asks Glenn to take him to a gun store. While looking for the gun store that is when they put zombie guts all over themselves. I have not heard the word 'Walker' but they have called them zombies. The tank shows up near the gun store. They don't go in it. The crows are there too. You learn that Shane and Lori have been with each other for at least one night.

    En este cómic nos explican las aventuras de Rick y un compañero (para no hacer spoiler) que regresan a la ciudad, Atlanta, que recuerdo que está plagada de zombies para coger armas. Allí, encontrarán alguna cosa o alguna manera para que los zombies no los detecten pero cuando todo parece ir bien surgirá algún problema que junto al final del cómic nos dejará con un poco de intriga...¡ A leer el próximo cómic para descubrirlo!

    Pretty good. However, I only give it a 4 star rating for one thing that started in the first issue already and became a tad annoying in this one: the fact that even after the apocalypse the women seem to be more than glad to stick to their culture made roles. They wash, they sew and knit and make quilts and are in the want of a strong male leader. Hope that stops in the next issues!
