inspired by some of the feedback you guys usually give. My first impressions fell a lil short. Just a dude looking at a zombie. Then after a lil deeper look, one can see the 'shock and awe' on this guys face, and the zombie seems to behave rather human. He's not acting like our traditional zombie, reaching out for the living. He looks down cast and maybe defeated, like he's given up.
Thus, bringing us back to one of our last major topics of conversation, are the zombies evolving?
Somehow I made myself laugh, thinking about a group of zombies getting together and organizing a massive assault on one of the communities. I started thinking about WAR CRAFT 2 (humans vs orcs), funny enough, almost seems to be going in that direction.
thanks for the cover DARBY! Definitely something to look forward to as we hopefully begin to get some answers next week.
"Sometimes when in highly populated places (mall, downtown etc.), I [secretly] observe my surroundings and ask myself, 'If 95.236% of all these people were zombies and I had a few seconds to respond...what would I do?'"

As much as I hate the idea of high-functioning zombies, I really need to know what's going on with them evolution-wise. I'm driving myself crazy trying to come up with where Kirkman is going with this. For example, are these new zombies going to feel pain? The idea that they have anything that resembles a functioning central nervous system seems too far fetched. The one holding it's shoulder- if it feels pain from a joint injury/flesh wound/whatever, shouldn't it be in constant, debilitating agony from the rotting body, atrophy, infections, rigor mortis, livor mortis, etc?
