Review by lithicbee
The story of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse continues, slowly. This volume is more about the psychological damage that each character is dealing with than the physical danger they are in, although the threat of death by zombie is of course ever-present. Our survivors learn about zombie herds firsthand and they have to deal with a new group of survivors that includes a possibly-full-of-crap "scientist" who thinks he knows why the zombie plague has occurred, but he won't tell because it is classified. Reading these comics is like watching a train wreck in really slow motion. Fascinating and horrifying in turns, but somehow the carnage is strangely compelling. For me, I like to imagine how I would deal with the same situations. Sometimes, though, I am not sure if I want to keep reading this series, as the characters are put through the wringer over and over; without at least a hint of and endgame in sight for the series, I may get tired of the darkness and despair before too long.

Rick and Carl, after witnessing the overrunning of their prison home and the death of his wife and infant daughter, make their escape. Rick goes a little crazy from the grief, hearing his dead wife on a dead phone. Later they reconnect with Michonne, Glenn and Maggie and several others at Herschel's farm. A small band of survivors shows up at the farm, one of whom claims to be a scientist who knows how the plague started, and convinces them to make their way to Washington D.C., where perhaps a cure for the plague can be found.

Review by schatzi
Fleeing the devastation at the prison, Rick and his son manage to find some of the surviving members of their little group. They also run into another band of survivors, with slightly better results than their last run-in with survivors. This book is a solid contribution to the series.
