The zombie apocalypse is just the crucible wherein human emotions, beliefs, and morals are heated until they change into other forms. This is the key to good apocalypse stories, and Kirkman knows it, embraces it, and turns that Bunsen burner all the way up.

Y'all know what undead apocalypse is, so I won't get into that, but this band of survivors, led by ex-cop Rick, look to take over a prison where they can try to grow food, keep out the rotters, and try to cobble togehter some semblance of a normal life. There would be no story without conflict, though, and it isn't the living dead who cause the most trouble.

Brutal, unforgiving, well-drawn in gloriuos black and white, and quite good. Not for the squeamish, sorry.
