Rick snaps.

    Charlie Adlard is given the task of selling the heated emotions that erupt in this issue, and I have to give him full marks for the scene where Rick finally goes over the edge, as his crazed expression during the sequence where he's unloading on Thomas is a visually jarring moment, as are the close-up shots of Rick's hands after he's pulled off. The art also impressively sells the sheer impact of Rick's attack, by giving us a good look at how the others are reacting to it, as Lori and Amy make for a wonderful background element during this scene. The double-page shot of the entire cast is also a lovely piece, as I love that many of the characters are allowed to be doing something beyond looking like stunned bystanders. The final page shot of Rick is also a decidedly ominous visual. However, the art isn't all doom and gloom, as it also does a nice job of capturing Carl's reaction when Sophia kisses him, and this scene could've been a little too cute if not for the art.

    The cover is a solid representation of what you will read in this book. There is some major drama and some hints about what may come in the story later on. The characters are beginning to become more familiar.
