The Walking Dead #69

Written by Robert Kirkman
Art by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn

If this book has been missing anything in recent months, it's been zombies. Well, this issue more than makes up for that, as Rick, Abraham, and new character Aaron take a side-trip into DC to rescue some of Aaron's people who had sent up a flare that they were in trouble.

This leads to a nice big zombie scene set down the street from the Capital Building, which is pretty cool. More importantly, these events help solidify with the group the importance of joining Aaron's 'community', which does look to be a safe, pleasant place to live. Of course, we've seen that before...

The Walking Dead remains one of my favourite monthly books.
