Synopsis: Rick Grimes, a local cop, and others try to survive in a world plagued by zombies.

Donít let the black and white art fool you. This story is solid. Itís quite a damn good comic. Thatís not something I say often. Maybe Iím acting too jaded. I donít know why I am. I shouldnít be. It hasnít stopped me from seeing a good comic that comes along in a blue moon. Iím glad. It shows thereís still some hope here. The art helps roll the story along. Thankfully, itís not the type of story that relies on art to get by. Itís the type of story where art complements the solid story. Kirkman knows how to pick good artists. The touch of black and white was quite excellent.

The story moves well. I liked the pacing. It was easy to move from panel to panel without feeling as if things jump around. Too many comics jump around with the pacing. This one goes around smooth. Almost as smooth as a babyís behind. It has a natural flow to it. The dialogue works well too. Iím glad I can understand it without it being garbled in off-beat or distracting language.

This isnít one of those wait and see comics. This is one of those pick it up and enjoy the ride comics. I recommend people to pick it up if you like a damn good zombie comic. It doesnít emphasize violence or campiness. It emphasizes characters. It points toward the humanity or loss of humanity in a world plagued with zombies. Thatís whatís so damn cool about it. It makes casual swearing in a comic review worth it.
