Everything changes (again)
on 22 June 2012
Rick's community is ticking over, getting into a routine of killing zombies, improving their defences & foraging for supplies. Then a stranger nicknamed 'Jesus' turns up on their doorstep. He says he's from a community of over 200 survivors & is looking to trade. He also knows of at least a couple of other groups nearby who he already trades with. And so in just a few short pages, Rick's world is once again transformed. This could be the "historic" birth of a new civilisation - but can 'Jesus' be trusted? Or will Rick's paranoia earn them the wrath of a much larger group & deprive them of a chance to build a new world?
Another great volume, which once again left me intrigued as to what will happen in volume 17. In some ways it covered old ground, with Rick & co. encountering a similar set of problems to when they met the Washington community, albeit on a larger scale. But there's also some nice new touches, like using the name Jesus & his community being a 'city' on a hill (Jerusalem?). And once again, there's questions as to just how many marbles Rick has lost & whether a new civilisation could ever hold a place for someone like him.
16 volumes in, this series is still consistently great & gets more & more interesting the longer it goes on.
