Into this mix steps Morgan, Rick's old friend that was hiding out in their hometown. Its interesting to see how Morgan, who cannot bring himself to kill someone who has turned into a zombie that he cares about, is feared because perhaps he has gone insane with grief while Rick himself is starting to be feared because he has refused to be consumed by his grief but instead has lashed out at anything in the world that would threaten him.
Volume 10 covers issues 55-60 of the monthly series, and it starts with Rick, Carl and Lori back at home. How is this possible? Dream sequence. No biggie, then we’re back where we left off at the end of the last book, with Rick and company (now including newcomers Abraham, Eugene and Rosita) on the road, headed to Washington DC.
Along the way, Rick talks Abraham into taking a detour so he can go back to his hometown and check on Morgan, whom he had left in the series opener before heading into Atlanta in search of his family.
What they find there is both heartbreaking, and a necessary evolution of the story, setting up a series of possible story arcs to come.
Once again, series creator Robert Kirkman has created some deep and interesting characters, fleshing out Abraham and also adding just a bit more dept to Rick and Carl’s relationship. But a few of the others get some important screen time as well, namely Dale and Maggie, and what happens to these two in this book could have some serious repercussions in the coming books. I’m eager to find out.
As far as Charlie Adlard’s art goes, this is probably the best I’ve seen from him yet.Read more ›
Rick and the handful of survivors from the original group, including his son Carl, have joined some new characters led by Abraham, a former US Military serviceman, as they take a scientist, who knows what caused the zombie apocalypse, to Washington, D.C., to uh... fix/explain things? Oh, I cannot wait to see that! Bunch of guys in lab coats sat round, laughing uncomfortably in between blasts from their inhalers. “Yeah, haha, oooooooooh, that whole zombie apocalypse… thing? That was a whacky day in the office! My bad. SOS! Pretty cool to see though, right? I mean, who knew we’d all be living in a George Romero movie if someone dropped that beaker of green liquid! Wait, what’re you doing with that baseball bat…!”.
Rick realises they’re near his old hometown so he and Carl, along with Abraham, go on a gun-gathering mission to Rick’s old police station lockup, while the others sit tight for their return. That’s the plot of this volume - pretty basic, right?
Kirkman uses this book to draw parallels with the first volume and show how much Rick’s changed in the year since he woke up in the abandoned hospital, while also touching base with how the first person Rick met when he left the hospital, Morgan, has fared.Read more ›
