The Walking Dead, Vol. 6: This Sorrowful Life

The Walking Dead, Vol. 6: This Sorrowful Life - Cliff Rathburn, Charlie Adlard, Robert Kirkman

So I read this right before I took a bunch of cold medicine on Saturday and as a consequence of that and also still being on a bunch of cold medicine right now, this one is kind of a blur. All I remember is ESCAPE and TORTURE and then some more MEGA TORTURE. Seriously, this was brutal, and I'm not entirely sure I'm comfortable with it?

 

Glen, Rick (now sans arm), and Michonne manage to escape from Woodbury with some other people (three I think? I don't remember). One of them turns out to be a traitor sort of (his motives are noble, but Rick's not taking chances). He wants to bring his people back to the prison to take advantage of all the resources, and somehow he thinks he can do so without bringing the Governor along as well. I'm 99% positive the Governor is still alive, even though I do remember Michonne doing some nasty and permanent damage to him. Anyways, Rick kills the tratior before he gets the chance to get the message to his people, even though by most standards he was a pretty good guy. The distance between Old Rick and New Rick grows more vast by the hour.

 

In other news, the prison is overrun by zombies and they have to spend a lot time and bloodshed cleaning it up again after the idiots get distracted by Tyreese and don't get the gates closed in time. Also, Carol is losing her mind? Am I making it up that she seriously asked Lori if she and Rick would do a joint marriage thing with her? And then got all butt hurt when they were like, what?
