The Walking Dead #59

The Walking Dead #59 (Image Comics)
By Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard

Rick’s old friend Morgan has gone a little mad with the transformation of his son into a zombie, but they take him with them anyway. After raiding Rick’s former police station for supplies, the men begin the trek back to the rest of their group — but the obstacles in their way may prove to be too much to handle. This series really is like reading a novel. Some issues are full of action. Others, like this one, are usually pretty quiet. If it weren’t for the final sequence, it would almost feel like filler. Not to say it isn’t good stuff — the bulk of this issue is about character development, particularly for Morgan and, to a lesser degree, the others. For a lot of books, it would feel like a wasted issue, but Kirkman has done an excellent job of making us invest in these characters. There’s nothing wasted here, not really. As always, the book works on every level.
