Walking Dead #83

It's a good thing I didn't bother to learn all these new folks' names cause a whole lot of them are zombie chow at this point. I did love the quick shot of survivors spread around the community. I may have to learn some new names after all. (I do like the lady worker who was kicking butt with that crowbar. Looks like she got on a roof and away from the horde.)

Rick backs down a little from his pronouncements last issue, but he is still a ruthless dude in this. There are three or four moments where I actually gasped while reading this, and I don't want to ruin them, but I'll just say that this book stuck with me for an hour after I read it.

Charlie Adlard's art is always great, and he does a fantastic job showing each of the deaths in this issue. He shows the victim's face surrounded by hands and teeth; it's just horrific watching these folks meet their fate. This is what we want from our zombie comics and I'm happy the zombies can still scare me after 83 issues.
