The Walking Dead #77

Written by Robert Kirkman
Art by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn

It's predictable to say this, but this is another amazing issue of The Walking Dead.  There are some really amazing scenes in this issue:
- Carl finds Rick talking on his Lori telephone, and their relationship splinters a little bit more.
- Glen and Maggie have a heart-to-heart.
- Andrea goes on a date (sort of).
- Pete (the guy that Rick beat up recently) decides to kill him, and interrupts a discussion about a funeral, which leads to a few more funerals being necessary in a scene that is going to lead to a lot of different problems for the community in the issues ahead.

The last couple of pages are chilling, as Adlard finally gets to draw some zombies again.  I especially like the change that comes over Douglas after events in this issue.  Kirkman seems determined to test his character's morals, now that the lower levels of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs have been met by moving into the community.
