Kirkman also delivers on his hints about the "scientist" Eugene. As we've all suspected, he isn't a government scientist with special insight into the zombies. His real origin is much more mundane. He's got a normal (and amusing) job and he's a good liar. That meant he had to play up his importance to survive a zombie world. It's an amusing reveal, although Abraham certainly makes Eugene pay for his lies. Abraham is rightfully wracked with guilt over the sacrifices he made to get Eugene to D.C. There are no deaths in this issue, but it is still a very satisfying read.
Charlie Adlard is as solid as always. He does a great job with that last page. The guy looks totally different from the scruffy, grubby normal cast.
