The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and
frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.
An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to
rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled: no
government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled
by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally start living.
In the last volume we learned that no one is safe. Now, after the staggering
losses they've sustained, Rick and Carl are left to pick up the pieces and carry
on, knowing that they could join their fallen friends and family at any moment.
This volume collects The Walking Dead issues #49-54.
