The Walking Dead #51 Review

Written by Robert Kirkman

As you saw in yesterday's Moments of the Week, Rick clearly survived his gunshot wound from a few issues back. However, the poor guy can't catch a break and the strain of this post-Zombie Apocalypse world and the death of his wife and newborn baby have clearly driven Rick a little nuts.

What starts off as a rather slow paced issue, which some may prematurely judge as being filler, sees Rick receiving a phone call at the place he is staying. The caller claims they are a group that was just calling people randomly hoping someone is out there and would answer.

Sounds a little convenient and unbelievable? Well, it is. By the end of the issue, the caller reveals herself as Lori, Rick's dead wife, and Rick quickly stumbles over to the wall and finds the phone isn't even plugged in or working.

Needless to say, the guy has lost it, but he's got his wits about him enough to hide the fact from his son and play the mysterious callers off as crazy people as they pack up and prepare to move on to a new location. But, before he leaves, Rick packs the phone up in his bag, hidden from his son, and I assume this is so he can "call" his wife later on.

Verdict - Must Read. While the story is a bit slow, it was a powerful ending that I should have seen coming and I fear for the future of Rick after seeing how far he's fallen. None of this insanity stuff was writtin in my Zombie Apocalypse manual, so I can see how it's caught Rick off guard.
