So this volume is basically this episode. This is the iconic pudding episode, where Rick is super sick and Carl has a mental breakdown.
Man, oh man, was this a great volume. Rick literally just accepts that he is going insane. It is kind of like the phone in the prison, for those of you who have watched the show and have not read the graphic novels, but I believe a lot more intense.
Rick and Carl got separated from the group. They are fending for themselves and Rick is so badly injured, that he kind of passes out for a while. At this point, Carl starts fending for himself and trying to see himself without anyone to provide and protect him.
I enjoyed this volume PURELY FOR THE FACT that we got to learn more about the two main characters and the mental stability of living in the apocalypse. Wouldn’t you be driven insane if people died, came back to life, and wanted to eat you? It was perfection in that case.
Other than that, it was really a transition volume, which happens. The whole setting is changing. They are no longer at the prison so they kind of have to regroup and figure out what is going
Everyone is separated and so some find some and some die and some aren’t found and some… are introduced.
I just want to point out that Abraham in the comics: perfection. Abraham in the show: also perfection but not in a comparison way. They are both kind of different. In the show Abraham became funnier. I like both for both interpretations though!
