The Walking Dead #73

Written by Robert Kirkman
Art by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn

It's getting hard to think of new ways of saying how much I love this book.  This has to be the most consistently good comic on the stands, as Kirkman continues to deliver exciting and well-grounded stories, and Adlard continues to prove why he's one of the best comics artists in the business.

This month Rick and his crew start their new jobs in the 'community' where they are now living.  Abraham starts working on expanding the walls of the town, and quickly establishes his skill at killing zombies.  He also has an interesting chat with one of the other workers, which provides some insight into the rest of the community, which is, of course, not as good as it seems.

Fearing just that, Rick takes some steps to protect his people, which might end up working out well, and might not, based upon his track record.

I like that Kirkman is starting to develop some of the townspeople as individual characters.  I imagine when everything goes to hell (as it always does in this book), some of these characters will end up sticking around for a bit.
