Walking Dead #75

Hoo boy. Rick, we've been trying to warn you. Chill out!

Robert Kirkman gives us the payoff we've been waiting for. Rick is just too wound up, too suspicious, and too high-strung to be able to relax in the Community. While Michonne, Glenn, and the others are making new friends and starting to fit in, Rick is just too far gone to make the transition. Kirkman sets up the climax nicely, logically, you can see where Rick is coming from. But he's just too whacked out for anyone to possibly side with him. I can't wait to see what happens to Carl, too. Surely they aren't going to banish Rick, expecting him to leave his kid????

I do think that the scavengers Glenn spotted could be an out. If the Community needs someone to put down a hard front against them, Rick is their best option, no doubt about it.

Charlie Adlard does another bang up job; and he gets to draw zombies! They tear that one dude into shreds. It's been awhile since we've seen that much zombie action in this title.
