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.
