The title is fitting and this volume was chock full of Kirkman character development goodness.

So much happens! Really I think this, aside from the first volume, is the best so far at individual development of characters. After the Woodbury incident and story arc everyone realizes they need to restock on ammunition and supplies if they are to survive any possible attack by Woodbury which seems imminent now. Rick comes to terms that with his new disability he can't do everything and be the hero/leader anymore and needs to take a backseat role to the able bodies people they have.

Yes this volume still has guns firing and bullets flying, even people dying, but the majority of it revolves around relationships being made, Rick and Lori having a baby, Glenn and Maggie debating about having a baby of their own and starting a family with things how they are, Dale having to cope with jealousy and some other new developments, Alice getting thrown into her new role as the doctor, Andrea taking the role of the group protector/sharpshooter/firing instructor, etc. A lot happens and Kirkman is true to form with a last page cliffhanger that leaves you screaming!

A real great volume and must read for any Walking Dead fan.
