    Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews For those who have never heard of Jericho, it was a television show which aired from 2006-2008 and focused on a group of characters thrown together in a small town in the State of Kansas after a nuclear event in the United States.

While the show was definitely post-apocalyptic in focus, dealt with the aftermath of a limited nuclear catastrophe, and spent lots of screen time exploring the issues of terrorism, political cover-ups, conspiracies, mercenary armies, and corrupt corporations, it never lost sight of the fact that it was a story about ordinary people. When the show ended its run, the story naturally had a less-than-stellar ending – though it was, at least, a conclusion of sorts. But thankfully (for Jericho fans, at least) the shows writers and producers got together with a couple comic companies, obtained the actors’ permissions to use their real likenesses, and created this official continuation of the series. Jericho: Season Three – Civil War starts off exactly how the tv series ended with Jake Green and Robert Hawkins in the independent Republic of Texas with a nuclear bomb. From there the surprises and excitement keeps building as the brewing war between the successor states of the U.S.A. begins to break out in earnest and the mysterious mastermind of the September nuclear attacks on U.S. cities begins to be revealed. After finishing this comic collection, the first thing I must say is thank you to everyone involved in getting this project done and gifting it to the show’s fans. It is, without a doubt, a welcome addition to the Jericho mythos and seamlessly carries on the story, weaving a post-apocalyptic plot that has the perfect mixture of nuclear horror, political mystery, human struggles, acts of nobility, and periods of brutality to entertain anyone! Now, with my fanboy gushing over, I have to remind everyone that nothing is perfect. And this comic collection is not an exception. My main criticisms of it being that the story is just not complex enough. As fans of the show may recall, on television, there was a large cast of characters; people the production team could highlight and immerse in an ongoing plot before moving on to another character, do the same things with him or her before repeating with yet another person while constantly foreshadowing future events. It was a type of storytelling that allowed a very complex storyline to develop organically, and Jericho the tv series really excelled at it. Unfortunately, though, a six part comic series obviously did not give the writers the luxury to use this method, but required them to focus on a smaller core of people, provide less details in exchange for rapidly fleshing out the overarching story of what happens to the USA, Texas, and the ASA (Allied States of America) as the Second American Civil War breaks out. And while they did an admirable job making it work, it really was a bit of a letdown in its narrower focus. Criticism aside, though, this is a very good continuation of the Jericho television series. The artwork is top notch, faithfully renders the actors, and does an excellent job visually “selling” the story. And that story is pure Jericho. No, it isn’t quite as complex. No, it doesn’t juggle as many different characters and storylines. But it is still a satisfying continuation of a series that was cancelled way before its time.

    I've never read any graphic novel before. However, since I loved the Jericho TV show, I thought I'd give this one a try. I found it entertaining and not as confusing as I feared a graphic novel might be. In particular, I really liked the artwork when I looked back at the book a second time to take it in visually after already reading it once for the storyline. Potential readers definitely need to know that this book does not stand on its own. In fact, reading it before watching the Jericho TV ser I've never read any graphic novel before.

Potential readers definitely need to know that this book does not stand on its own. In fact, reading it before watching the Jericho TV series spoils all the critical plot elements from Seasons 1 and 2. (If you haven't seen Jericho on TV yet, do yourself a favor and go watch it on Netflix.) I enjoyed revisiting my favorite characters from Jericho and reading the next chapters in their stories. The storyline was exciting, explained some important backstory of Seasons 1 and 2, and ended with a bit of a cliffhanger (of course). However, the writing quality seemed lower than in the TV episodes, including some uncharacteristically implausible plot twists. In addition, the graphic novel format wasn't as engrossing and didn't have the same emotional impact for me. I kept wishing I could watch the key scenes in greater detail on video. In summary, Jericho Season 3: Civil War is recommended for avid fans but not really anyone else. As for me, mainly because I like the characters and want to know what happens next, I'm eagerly anticipating the Jericho Season 4 graphic novel, which will be available soon according to Amazon.com.

    Well-written continuation of the television series, marked by strong characters and compelling situations. The "what if?" nature of the plot and the moral choices of the characters make "Jericho Season 3" an exciting and thoughtful story.

    I loved the television show "Jericho". It was cancelled much too soon (1 full season and then a 7-episode 2nd season). There were such depth to the characters and stories and there were many left to tell. I just re-watched the show with my wife (who hadn't seen it when it was on tv) after purchasing it on DVD. Then I learned of these graphic novels which took up where the show left off. I don't think I've ever read a graphic novel before. It's sort of like an adult comic book.

I just finished Season 3 and look forward to Season 4. The book isn't really a season full of stories, unless you count a second like season 2 where there were only 7 episodes. But the writing was directed by the original writers of Jericho so there is story continuity and theme. The art is done very well. I am looking forward to reading Season 4 and see how things end. Graphic novels are not my favorite form of reading and I probably wouldn't read one very often. But I'm glad to have these. Any Jericho fan should enjoy these two books and I would highly recommend them. The only reason I give it 5-star is the format. I would have preferred just a regular novel, and that's just a personal like/dislike of mine.

    When I found out that the Jericho series had been continued in graphic novels, I knew that I had to read them. I loved the TV series and was a bit annoyed that they only did 2 series but this graphic novel continues on the story perfectly from where the televised series 2 ended. The story here was well written with a good pace and keeps in line with the story laid out in series 1 and 2. This graphic novel was beautifully illustrated and the characters looked exactly like those in the TV series.

    Jericho was a TV series in the early 2000s exploring American in a post-apocalyptic setting. The series was initially cancelled after one season, granted a further 10 episodes and then ended. Civil War picks up where the canonical ending of Jericho ended in Texas with Jake, Hawkins and a bomb, as such it does require you to have watched the series first and assumes you have. This is a fantastic way to continue a well-liked series.

All the main characters are reasonably recognisable, some more so than others. The style is perfect for the plot.As for the story it doesn't feel like a money grab to me. There were always holes in the TV's story a bit, plot lines that would have been explained in time. This is that time. We spend time with the mastermind of the attacks but it is primarily Jake and Hawkins' story. This really is something for fans to read.My reading experience in a gif:

    34th book of 2021: Dys-trope-ia I’m happy that this comic book series exists, a lower budget way to continue a plot that didn’t succeed in the meat grinder of television. I didn’t know I could be nostalgic for the fears of a pre-crash 2008 America, when our biggest collective anxieties were overpowered security contractors and the phantom threat of terrorism. Now I’m in the 2021 dystopia where the 2008 economic crash and 2020 pandemic reveal that we had much more boring villains to worry about. 34th book of 2021: Dys-trope-ia I’m happy that this comic book series exists, a lower budget way to continue a plot that didn’t succeed in the meat grinder of television.

I wish we had names for all of them, here’s what I found: 1. Bobby Fischer antagonists 2. Bad guy jailbreak 3. Gleefully deceitful politicians 4. Bottom line corporate automatons - 5. Destroy the world for its own good antagonists I suppose this is what attracts me more to nonfiction: it may be dull but at least it’s original. There is more in this series, but I think I’ll end it here.

    The continuation of the cancelled TV series increases the tensions between the two sides of the former United States, with the mercenary group J&R playing a role. Jake and Hawkins get the help of “John Smith” who orchestrated the original bombings and explains why he did it. A decent graphic novel for fans of the show that are dying to know what happened next.

    One bonus star since I am a fan of the show. The comic looks and feels like the show used to be. It captures everything I liked about it and I'm glad the writers continued the story in this way. I liked the artwork very much and I think the characters are portrayed very well. I woudln't recommend this to anyone who is not a fan of the show. I also wouldn't say this is a must read for fans but I definitely enjoyed it. One bonus star since I am a fan of the show. The comic looks and feels like the show used to be.

    All in all disappointing. The writing is significantly weaker than in the TV episodes of the great first season, slotting ino place of the downward grade of the second. The simplicity of the plot and concentration on one storyline combined with the just about average quality of the artwork simply did not create the same emotional impact. The continuation in the form of a novel would have been the much better choice.

    Quick read I really enjoyed watching the tv series and was left wanting to know what happens, and this does that. I was unsure at first about reading this as it has been done as a graphic novel, but I really enjoyed reading it and seeing what the characters got up to next.

    It's sweet they added more to the show's cannon. The charm seemed to leak away as the plot thickened. The graphic novel trades charm for nostalgia here, with an ever-thickening plot. I was hoping for closure, maybe it will be in season 4. It's sweet they added more to the show's cannon. The charm seemed to leak away as the plot thickened.

    I'm not a huge fan of graphic novels, but when I saw this one at Chapters I snatched it up right away. First off, Jericho was an amazing television show and I am still mourning it's demise. I love post-apocalyptic plots and this show brought the best of them to the table. A small town with a closely knit community that survives through a massive nuclear fallout? The best recipe for good television. Unfortunately, the Nielsen ratings on the show lessened as season one continued.

First off, Jericho was an amazing television show and I am still mourning it's demise. I love post-apocalyptic plots and this show brought the best of them to the table. A small town with a closely knit community that survives through a massive nuclear fallout? The best recipe for good television. Unfortunately, the Nielsen ratings on the show lessened as season one continued. My theory is that most people who watched the show enjoyed it online, as the fan base was very strong on the message boards and website. As season one came to a close, there were rumors of the show being cancelled. Without a satisfying series end filmed, fans were enraged at the ideas of losing an amazing show without a reasonable explanation of the plot. Long story short (believe it or not, there are more details to why the show came back), the show was renewed for another half season and the writers were given a bit more time to attempt a way to bring the show together. Unfortunately, even then there were bits and pieces left unanswered and the when news of a graphic novel came out, I'm sure many Jericho fans were excited to read it. It was released in separate comics and could also be purchased as one novel, which is the way I bought it. I've never reviewed a graphic novel before so I'm unsure of how to critique it. The art was fantastic. Many of the characters rendered looked exactly like their counterparts on the show. However, as my boyfriend so cleverly pointed out, the characters that hadn't been created by the show were not drawn as well and lacked detail. (The graphic style is a type of realism.) As for the plot--it was enjoyable. We found out more about the man behind the nuclear attacks and the government of Jennings & Rall that came to power after the attacks. This is one of the most enjoyable graphic novels I have read (next only to Maus, Vol. 1: My Father Bleeds History), but perhaps I enjoed it so much because I was a huge fan of the show. At any rate, if you watched the two seasons of Jericho, I would recommend this as a MUST READ. I have HEARD (through tiny whispers) that a second graphic novel will be coming out as well. I hope this is true, as this novel (season three) has left plot lines waiting to be developed. If you HAVEN'T watched Jericho (yet), I urge you to! The seasons are very affordable on Amazon or eBay and it's a very enjoyable show. Go watch and have fun! 4/5 stars for a satisfactory continuation of the show!

    While mentioning the old TV show Jericho to a librarian friend a couple of weeks ago, she informed me that two graphic novels have been published in the last couple of years. Both continue the story of the show, and are very well done. I was very pleased to see that the characters are nicely drawn. The story moves along at a good pace and the politics between the three countries that now take up the lower 48 states are as interesting as ever.

The story moves along at a good pace and the politics between the three countries that now take up the lower 48 states are as interesting as ever. For a refresher, since a group of nuclear bombs destroyed many of America's major cities, the country is now divided with the government of the United States in Columbus, Ohio, and the government of the Allied States in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The dividing line between both countries is the Mississippi River. In the middle is the newly independent Republic of Texas. Jake Green and Robert Hawkins are still on mission to take what they know about the origination of the nuclear attacks to Texas in an effort to get them to fight for the right side. I recommend Jericho Season 3, but only to those who have already watched and enjoyed the two televised seasons.

I'm going to say right now, however, that the story started in season 2, and carried through this comic book, leaves me slightly disappointed. It doesn't quite make sense. Basically, Jennings and Rall create emergency contingency plans to implement in the event of a nuclear attack. Their scenario details the kinds of attack that would cripple the United States government. It doesn't seem as if it were ever Jennings and Rall's plan to execute the attack, only to prepare for it. Then, one man working for Jennings and Rall goes crazy and actually implements the attack, as described, in order to destroy Jennings and Rall (which he believes to be an evil organization). In the aftermath, Jennings and Rall become instrumental in rebuilding the country (albeit making inordinate profits and gaining immense power while doing so). The show then acts as if these revelations would destroy the legitimacy of the new government—as if Jennings and Rall itself planned and executed the attacks for economic benefit and with plans of rebuilding its own private country. So the show acts as if this is the case, when in reality, it was just the work of a madman (albeit piggy-backing on some contingency plans drafted by Jennings and Rall and sloppily secured). I think the story would be much more believable, and much more comprehensible, had the character "John Smith" never existed, and Jennings and Rall really been responsible for the attacks.

    Six comic books collected do not make a season. Even if every one of the six were to be about an hour of Jericho's TV run shows. Perhaps this being misled colors the work.

The short 2nd season was set up to provide an end to many questions. That the delivery of the package would force the hand of the evil empire and though not assured, the road to unification under the legitimate government was on its way. An attack against Texas that they were taken by surprise ends that notion. That a nation that was under the assumption that it could be attacked at any time did not have its defenses ready... There are so many other holes that it leaves us in doubt that the writers really understand how to build a story. Then when we suspend our disbelief as we did with the many holes they had in the original week, again, we find that the writers don't provide enough for us to see an entire story. Partial subplots as if this too was a shortened season. Plots that could be described in a few sentences for the entire book rather than for each episode set us up for a partial season again. In all, you will want this if you like Jericho, but you will feel robbed. Probably even more than when we saw that Jericho was canceled.

In the meantime, I bought this officially sanctioned graphic novel of Season 3 so I could continue the story of what happened after the events depicted in the show. I'm not usually a fan of graphic novels but the prospect of continuing the story arc meant this was a no-brainer for me. This impeccably inked book continues right where the show left off and furthers the story really quite excellently. The who and why behind the attacks are the main focus of this season three work. The motives behind the attacks, and who the mysterious "John Smith" was, were just starting to unfold when the show itself reached its final episode leaving many questions and unknowns that didn't get the chance to be explored and answered. I enjoyed this graphic novel enormously. My only criticism is that it was too short. I'm impatient for more! I have pre-ordered the Season 4 collection already, (which is slated for an October 2013 release, but keeps slipping back), and I am very much looking forward to immersing myself once again in the fictional town of Jericho and the gripping - and all too believable - scenario that the inhabitants of Jericho found themselves faced with.

    I did not watch Jericho when it actually aired on television. I am a native Kansan and I knew it was set in Kansas, but having lived through a lifetime of Wizard of Oz jokes and then remembering The Day After, I was turned off by the premise of an apocalyptic narrative set in Kansas. This was a mistake. I had some friends who were passionate about this show and who rallied to try to save it, but even still I didn't jump on the Jericho bandwagon.

I liked the writing, the storyline and the characters. I was surprised that a show like this didn't catch on. After watching the full season one and the abbreviated season two, I was hungry for more. Jericho: Season 3 Civil War was exactly what I was looking for. I must confess that I am not a fan of graphic novels, but this book does a very good job of continuing the story and tying up some loose ends that the cancellation of the series did not allow for. If you are a fan of the show Jericho and rue the fact that is is no longer on the air, this will be a fix for you. Of course, even the graphic novel ends with a cliffhanger and I am not aware if there is any plan to release another graphic novel or if fans will be left hanging once again.

    Jericho Season 3 is a competent continuation of the storyline of the television series that was cancelled as usual too soon, despite a vigorous fan campaign. The artwork brings you neatly back into the story, and (fortunately, to my mind) doesn't use any disjointed show-off-y art tricks that some graphic stories use, which would pull you out of the gritty reality of this series.

Finally, we find out the motivation behind the nuclear blasts that crippled the US and fragmented it into two nations. This novel put off the eventual confrontation between the Allied States of America and the reorganized United States of America, so the title is a bit of a misnomer.

    First, I have to say I don't read a lot of comic books but being a fan of the television series I was thrilled to find the continuation of the story in this form. The art work was fine for my taste (again I'm not really "into" comic books). Some of the pictures were so close to photos of the actors from the show - others were a little off but that did not distract from my enjoyment.

The story line flows fast and furious just like the series. The writers are staying true to the characters and there are times I could really picture Hawkins, Jake, Eric, etc. saying the words. My only complaint is that it was over so fast - just like the series. I plan to get the next season when it is sold as an all in one too.

    Continuing where the second season left off, Season 3 widens the scope of the nuclear attacks further, revealing a mastermind behind them with his own agenda. Beginning with a small town just trying to survive after the attacks, Jericho has expanded into a full-fledged conspiracy thriller. Here we see the president of the ASA making his moves against Texas and the remaining USA, trying to cement his control. Well worth picking up for fans of the show to see what happens to the characters, but frus Continuing where the second season left off, Season 3 widens the scope of the nuclear attacks further, revealing a mastermind behind them with his own agenda.

Well worth picking up for fans of the show to see what happens to the characters, but frustrating in that it builds to a cliffhanger, but IDW has announced Season 4 is coming in July.

    I loved the TV show, one of my favourites of all time. But it's just so difficult to put the quality of an episode into a 20 page comic book. The book suffers a bit from the lack of developed scenes and a "To Be Continued" (and to be honest, it's a weak cliffhanger) ending frustrates the reader...especailly with no indication of a sequel coming out. At the end of the day, it's good to see Jake Green and Robert Hawkins back in action. I loved the TV show, one of my favourites of all time.

    Great continuation of an awesome TV Show. It was nice to see the characters again and to get a little more backstory about what exactly happened with the initial bombs. I was a little surprised that it ended on a cliffhanger though. I thought resolving the series was the whole point. I don't see any clues that say there will be a season 4. That's kind of an odd choice. Still, there is enough resolution and backstory to make it enjoyable and worth the read. Great continuation of an awesome TV Show.

    So I loved the t.v. series and like other fans was disappointed when it was canceled after season 2 especially considering how season 2 ended on a cliffhanger. I had no idea there was a Jericho graphic novel until I saw season 4 featured on NetGalley. While it was nice to see Hawkins & Jake again, I'm not sure how I feel about it in this format. I'll read season 4 next and decided after that one if I want to continue with the series.

    The storyline is a worthwhile continuation to the TV series; I could easily see these plot threads going on screen. Unfortunately, it's very rushed, trying to cram too much plot into too few pages. The character interactions which defined Jericho get squeezed out as a result. Even more plot threads are opened, leaving season 3 with less resolution than season 2.
