    Charlie Adlard gets the opportunity to present some more zombie blasting action, and if nothing else, he deserves credit for capturing the one element that zombies have over every other movie monster: their ability to overwhelm a character with sheer numbers. There's a lovely little sequence in this issue where Otis arrives outside the prison, and he quickly finds himself swarmed by the zombies gathered outside. A great little follow up sequence shows Otis has spent most of the battle cowering by his wagon while the mystery woman took care of business. How can one not love the sheer impact of that gore covered shovel? The art also nicely captures the impact of this issue's big surprise moment as the close-ups of Rick's eyes as he studies the situation before he makes his decision is an amazing bit of artwork. The final page of the issue also has an undeniable impact, and I'm delighted to see this book's creative team is getting some recognition with a pair of Eisner nominations. Read Full Review
