The Walking Dead #67

Written by Robert Kirkman
Art by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn

Here's another example of why The Walking Dead has been in my top-five favourite comics list for the last few years. This is another incredibly well-written issue, picking up a few weeks after the events of the last. Rick and Carl get time to have a pretty serious father-son discussion, which only strengthens their bond. As well, we see that food is getting scarcer as winter approaches, and learn that Eugene has been keeping secrets from the group.

As the people get closer to Washington, I imagine that things are going to change quite a bit. Where before the zombies were pretty spread out, it's safe to assume that they would be much denser in an urban setting. This should give Adlard a chance to draw some pretty interesting scenes.
