Overrated in more ways than one 0

Of course many first issues start off slow, mainly want to introduce characters, and get the reader used to the world, but TWD #1 takes that to an extreme. The main character Rick Grimes is a former town Sheriff that is injured in the line of duty and put into the hospital, when he eventually awakens he finds that the world he once knew has moved on. Zombies are rampant throughout his town, his family is nowhere to be found, and the entire town looks to have been abandoned for at least 10 years....
