A life filled with horrors seems to finally be taking its toll on Rick Grimes.
After seeing countless friends devoured by the flesh-craving zombies that now virtually rule their world and witnessing the death of his wife and baby daughter at the hands of some savage survivors, Rick is barely holding it together. Only the instinct to protect his young son, Carl, is keeping him from completely losing his marbles — though he does spends his nights talking on a disconnected phone to his dead spouse, so there may not be too many left in the bag.
In this 10th paperback collection of The Walking Dead, writer extraordinaire Robert Kirkman, expertly aided as always by the perfectly creepy art of Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn, examines just how severe the damage to Rick and his fellow survivors is after all this time in this nightmarish world.
Oh, and there’s also a suicide attempt, the return of familiar face and the introduction of a terrifying and deadly new phenemenon: The herd.
