Walking Dead #94
Robert Kirkman pulls back a bit this issue. Rick has been going through his fascinating descent into almost villainy, but I think that’s wrapping up now. Interacting with a “larger world” and with other folks who aren’t trying to kill him is going to do wonders to restore his old morals.
I also love that Jesus is entirely more competent than anyone we’ve seen before. This guy fights zombies with his hands literally tied behind his back. Rich, Michonne, Tyreese, Abraham, Andrea, and more of our core cast have proven skilled at zombie killing, but this guy takes it to a new level. I wonder if there are some special forces or other elite troops helping to prop up this large affiliations of survivors.
Usually, Rick is the one a step ahead of the rest of the characters. It’s fun seeing somebody else in the drivers’ seat for a bit. And I don’t figure it will last, in any case.
Charlie Adlard continues to be the model of consistency on art.
