Transitional but Delightful
Alright, it’s pretty easy for me to say that The Walking Dead is one of the best comics out on the market. Hell, it’s really easy. However, this issue is totally a transitional one, and it shows. Nevertheless, Robert Kirkman pulls it off and makes it not entirely boring and hints at some other stuff in it.
After the (awesome!) Fear the Hunters storyline the gang has done some pretty terrible things and find out that Eugene who seemed like he had contacts with the government and was leading them to Washington D.C., was actually lying in order for him to survive. Disgruntled and starving, a man just walks up to the group out of the woods and offers them a spot in the special community he lives in.
Very intriguing. But, this issue is working in between the short run of Fear the Hunters and the story line once they end up in the community. So, it’s meet and greet/ Rick’s kind of mean again.
I really enjoyed how in the couple of panels, Kirkman (heavily) suggested that the partners from the town doing the scoping for people to join the community Aaron and Eric are homosexuals. They both seem very empowered characters and I hope to see more of them in the future of the series.
