The Walking Dead, Vol. 3: Safety Behind Bars

The Walking Dead, Vol. 3: Safety Behind Bars - Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard Reading Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1 alongside the Walking Dead series, you begin to see some weakness in the presentation here. In The Walking Dead, conversations take place in multiple word bubbles across a single panel, which allows for exposition and monologue, but not much depth in character movement or reaction. The conversation can feel static. It works well for signature scenes, but Moore's work seems better distributed across the page, and his dialogue sounds considerably more natural than Kirkman's. Moore is also excellent with illustrating the natural pauses in dialogue, and Kirkman comes across comparatively as less adept. Still, this was a very enjoyable twist in the Walking Dead storyline, and the survivors number fewer by its end.
