Oh, before I do that, let me just say…yes, Rick was stupid in the comic, too. His car ran out of gas, he went to the farmer’s house up the road or whatever, walked in on their corpses then stumbled upon the horse and they rode off into impending doom together.
After Glenn saves Rick from getting torn apart like that poor horse they climb a roof, then through a fence, then through the woods. Yes, the woods…Anyway, on the way Rick tells his life story about his coma and looking for his family or whatever. For the second time he breaks down and cries. No one could blame him.
When Rick gains his composure for the second time they walk a bit further and they make it to the camp where everyone is set up. There he finds his wife, son and his best friend no Shame…I mean Shane. It was a joyous event.
After getting acquainted with everyone and settling down, Lori gives Rick his ring back and all that good stuff. They fall asleep together (no sexy-time).
The following morning, Dale couldn’t wait to be all up in someone else’s nuptials. That part in the show they got right. He of course has his famous hat, too. That’s his signature for both the show and the comic.
One thing I notice, though, the RV looks longer and more interesting in the comic than it did in the show. That could just be me, though.
Donna wasn’t in the show, but in the comic she’s a fucking blow-hard; a negative Nancy if you will.
She bitched a lot about doing laundry and “women’s rights”. Lady, it’s a zombie apocolypse and you’re worried about women’s rights?
Oh, Sophia’s father is dead in the comic. I like how they changed that in the show. Made things interesting around the campfire.
In the show, the bag of guns never leave rick and it of course makes it to camp, but it’s not enough for everyone. Rick wants everyone to carry a gun so he asks people around the camp where they can find guns, Jim tells them. Glenn goes to his car and gets his map.
They get the map and then trek off to find the gun store. They then realize how they can easily become invisible to the walkers. They find a corpse and then of course cover themselves with it.
They make it to the gun store and pack everything into a grocery cart they found on the street.
They make it back to the campsite. but, not before it starts raining and the method they were using to be invisible to the walkers washes off where they have to use the weapons they got from the gun store. Rick got really close to being bit during the ordeal.
Shooting lessons is next. Andrea is a great shot of course. Carl get’s shooting lessons and he can now carry a gun.
