Walking Dead #54
This comic is always entertaining. Even when we get bad issues, I'm always excited to see what happens next. This issue has a more reasonable introduction to the new cast members. They seem pretty interesting so far, and they do bring a nice goal to the series. The book had been kind of stagnant while the cast just sits around surviving, but now that they are setting out for Washington, we've got a plot that can move forward. After the slaughter in recent months, it would be easy to think that the cast is decimated, but between the survivors and the three new folks, I think there is still plenty of potential for some nice interaction. I am nervous we are going to see one of these herds of zombies soon though!
Charlie Adlard's work is very consistent. He's not a fantastic artist, but he's a clear storyteller.
