The Walking Dead #58

The Walking Dead #58 (Image Comics)
By Robert Kirkman & Charlie Adlard

After the nearly-Earth shattering events of last issue, Rick sits down with his escort to compare stories. We’ve seen a lot of terrible things over the past 57 issues, but somehow it’s a lot more powerful to see them all laid out at once the way we do here. The reader is just left sitting there nodding as we remember each terrible thing that we’ve seen happen, then in understanding as we listen to events we didn’t see, but have no trouble believing. An encounter with an old friend, similarly, is far more tragic than we would have anticipated. Kirkman‘s zombie drama is really a character peace. We’ve watched Rick transform from a stalwart cop into a ruthless survivor tormented by the very things he’s had to do to keep himself and his son alive. The transformation hasn’t been pleasant by any stretch of the imagination, but it has been undeniably compelling. This title is just plain awesome.
