The Walking Dead: Volume 15 – We Find Ourselves
In the last volume of this on-going series, Rick had an epiphany. He realized that fighting to survive wasn’t enough. Rebuilding society by creating a close-knit community was the only way to go.
In this volume, the community is running really low on supplies and it looks as though they might not have enough food to last the winter. There is a little unrest in the community but Rick manages to mend bridges and it looks like things must just hold together.
The Walking Dead: Volume 16 – A Larger World
A man with incredible fighting skills shows up and tells the survivors that they aren’t the only community around. Rick is immediately suspicious and takes every precaution. But it turns out that society is starting to put itself back together. There are other communities and they want to establish regular trade routes between them.
The story ends with the very hopeful words, “This changes everything, can’t you see that? We can finally stop surviving . . . and start living.”
It’s nice to see that they might finally have a happy ending. That being said, rebuilding society might be a little harder than Rick imagines right now.
