Looking forward to it. Love the show and was hooked from episode 1, but I love all Zombie movies and the Walking Dead matches everything I love about them. I mean a continueing Zombie Saga - excellent!
I ended up reading the compendium volume 1 after the 8th episode of season 3 as I wanted to find out what happened.
Let's just say that they stray a bit from the comics. The comics are more gruesome and IMHO, better, but I really like what they've done with the show. I won't give any spoilers, but let's just say the Governor in the comics is much, much, much more of an evil person and if they follow the comics a little I'm very much looking forward to what they do at the end of season 3.
