I figured out my lack of enthusiasm. Well, except for noticing the unoriginal parts. It’s because of Crossed. This issue they all sit down and talk about their lives before–Shane has a moment it’s clear he’s thinking about getting jiggy with Lori on the road while Rick was comatose (maybe Moore’s best quality is his ability to convey his character’s unspoken thoughts)–and I thought about the same scene in Crossed. There’s nothing interesting in this scene here, except Rick becomes less of a believable cop every issue. Unless he’s supposed to be Andy Griffith.
There’s also the whole discreet pro-gun thing. Sure, it’s a zombie holocaust, but all the arguments for the seven year old running around with a gun could be used by some white supremacist. Only they’re easily digestible here, because it’s the end of the world.
And did they make Glenn white? He doesn’t look Asian anymore.
