The Walking Dead Title Screen

Hi, I am fairly new to After Effects and have recently been given the task of recreating the intro to The Walking Dead. I am currently at the end of it where the title is on screen but am not sure of how to do this. The way it is in the show is that "The" appears first, "Walking" appears in second, and "Dead" is last. I am just unsure of how exactly I would make it cut in that order exactly. I would appreciate some help or a step in the right direction. Also, how would I put an overlay over just the text specifically? Thanks in advance

Lottery11, if I understand correct, this is very, very, very basic stuff. Please go through some beginner tutorials.

I think the order is "THE", "DEAD", "WALKING". Just make the words as separate text-elements and animate their opacity accordingly?

What do you mean by 'overlay'? If you want some dirt-texture to mask the text, you can just throw some grayscale bitmap on top of the text elements and use the text layer's TrkMat column > Luma matte or Inverted luma matte.
