The Walking Dead – The Calm Before | Comics

Lori was silently thinking about the time which was initially after the worldwide outbreak when she had sex with Shane at the side of a road while Carl was sleeping inside the back of the car. As she was worrying about Rick's situation, Shane comforts her by saying that everything will be alright in the end. However, she was still unsure on how to approach Rick about it when they finally reunites. Rick talks with her about the present but Lori still seems to have been indulged into her own thoughts for a while.

Glenn and Maggie finally ties the knot of holy matrimony in the prison cafeteria with Hershel’s blessings and approval for them. Everything in the prison compound seemingly starts running back to normal again. Even though she was uncertain about how to confront Rick about this, that night, Lori finally confesses the truth she’s been hiding from Rick all along about her and Shane, noting the possibility of her unborn child could be of Shane’s and Rick confirms that he already knows this but chose not to talk about it.

Next day, Rick, Tyreese and Dale decide after a quick inventory check that they need more weaponry to defend themselves from The Governer and the Woodbury group if they are truly planning to attack on them. The group of Andrea, Axel, Glenn, Maggie, Michonne and Tyreese goes for a supply run and found the National Guard Station which the Woodbury forces were using till then and collects whatever they can along with a large army truck.

After gathering necessary supplies from there, the group blew up the station to make sure that the Woodbury men will not be able to collect anything from there. On their way back from the run, they met a few of Governor's men when they stopped at an abandoned Wal-Mart and engage in gun fight after one of them recognizes Glenn and shot at him. Back at the prison, Lori goes into labor and gives birth to a baby girl child who is named Judith.

In the middle of all that Dale got bit in the leg when he and Billy Greene went to siphon gas from the cars outside to run the generator they discovered earlier. To save him from infection and turning into a Walker, Rick quickly amputates his leg. Carol goes nuts as she loses grip over the reality of the world and there's enemy at the gates to lay waste of their new found home and take it away.

The Walking Dead – The Calm Before

The Calm Before” is the seventh storyline of The Walking Dead monthly ongoing comic-book series, which collects issue #37-42 from the title and is published from Image Comics in 2007. Series creator and regular writer Robert Kirkman (Image United, Invincible) and artist Charlie Adlard (Judge Dredd, The X-Files) continues to chronicle the events of undead apocalypse just like the previous issues. “The Calm Before” perhaps is one of the slowest running arc of the entire series.

Welcome to The Tombs

Elements shown in the book like Carol becoming suicidal was never really adapted into the live-action adaptation of The Walking Dead TV Show on AMC. Instead, Carol's character lived and became one of the long-lived characters from the show till date. The story was preceded by “This Sorrowful Life” before and is followed by the epic “Made To Suffer” storyline which also belongs to the same series and marks a great reckoning for the characters of the series.
