About the Author
Meet Robert Kirkman, an accomplished comic book writer from America. He is most famous for his work on The Walking Dead, Invincible, Ultimate X-Men, and Marvel Zombies.
In addition, he has partnered with Todd McFarlane on the Haunt series. Robert is a partner at Image Comics, making him one of the five key members, and the only one who was not an original co-founder.
Robert’s journey as a comic book author began with self-publishing under his label, Funk-o-Tron. He collaborated with his childhood friend Tony Moore, and together they created Battle Pope, which was released in 2001.
Battle Pope ran for two years, alongside other Funk-o-Tron publications like InkPunks and Double Take.
In 2002, Robert commenced his first work for another company. He collaborated with Image Comics, producing a four-part SuperPatriot series with backup story artist Cory Walker from Battle Pope.
Shortly afterward, Robert began his own projects, including Tech Jacket, Invincible, and The Walking Dead, all of which are creator-owned.
The Walking Dead, Book Three by Robert Kirkman is a graphic novel that was first published on March 1st, 2007. This popular series of graphic novels from Image Comics takes readers on a thrilling journey through a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies.
The Walking Dead has been praised for its compelling storyline, well-developed characters, and evocative artwork.
The story follows a group of survivors led by Rick Grimes, a former police officer who wakes up from a coma to find that the world has been overtaken by zombies.
Book Three continues Rick’s journey after he has reunited with his family and the other survivors. The group is now settling into a secure location, but they soon realize that their safety is only temporary.
They must leave their sanctuary and risk their lives to find a new place to call home. The journey is fraught with danger, as they encounter other survivors, some of whom are more dangerous than the zombies they are running from.
Kirkman does an excellent job of creating multi-dimensional characters that readers can relate to. They are flawed and forced to make difficult moral choices in order to survive.
Readers will feel a connection to these characters as they grapple with questions of morality and ethics in a world without law and order. The artwork in the book is outstanding, capturing the grit and despair of the post-apocalyptic world in vivid detail.
The Walking Dead has become a cultural phenomenon, with the TV series of the same name adapting many of the same elements from the graphic novels. It has garnered a significant following, not only for its entertainment value but also for its commentary on human nature and social issues.
The widespread popularity of zombies in mass media has made the discussion of survivors a timely and relevant topic. The book is not without its flaws, however.
Some readers have criticized the pacing of the story, which can feel slow at times, and the violence can be overwhelming for some. Additionally, some of the storylines can feel repetitive, with the characters facing similar situations and making similar decisions throughout the series.
Despite its limitations, The Walking Dead, Book Three by Robert Kirkman is an engrossing read that is sure to appeal to fans of the zombie genre. It is a well-crafted story that explores the complexity of human nature, the spirit of survival, and the bonds that connect us in the face of adversity.
This recognition of the human side of the zombie apocalypse sets it apart from its counterparts.
Overall, I highly recommend The Walking Dead, Book Three to readers who enjoy graphic novels or are fans of the zombie genre.
It is a thought-provoking and thrilling installment in the series that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next edition. I give it a score of 8 out of 10.
