The Walking Dead #60
Here's a brief excerpt from the latest issue of The Walking Dead. Again, it's probably one of the best comics on the stand right now--if you're a fan of the zombie genre, or even just the horror one, I'd definitely recommend. And to anyone who asks, "How is it any different from any other zombie comic out right now?", all I have to say is, go check out something like Garth Ennis's Crossed and see which one holds out better.
With this scene, some members of the cast have discovered an abandoned house in an attempt to lead a herd of zombies away from their camp.
Some people were confused by this scene, so Kirkman clarified it thusly:
The children were poisoned and then their brains were drilled into by their parents…then the father shot the mother in the head–and then blew his own head off…so that’s why they’re in much worse shape than the kids. I imagine they lived for a good long while in that house, rationing food…and when it became clear that they’d have to hit the road to survive…they decided that was too dangerous. They were already miserable…so they decided to end it. Whether the father or mother were in agreement or if one killed the kids without the other knowing…we’ll never really know. There’s a lot of fun speculation to be had about how things went down exactly.
