    As I mention above this book opens with a nice little bit of zombie humour, and while I didn't figure out why the zombie fell down until a closer second inspection of the panels I have to say I enjoyed the reaction of the zombie by the fence. The art also does a nice job of selling the little character moments, from Carol hurt expression when Tyreese tells her that he's not ready to leave, to the cute little bit where we see the dead body in the library springs to life.
