The Walking Dead – Miles Behind Us | Comics

In lookout for shelter outside of Atlanta, Rick and his fellow survivors are forced to travel on road to find more trouble.

After losing a couple of members to a sudden attack by a large herd of walkers during dinner one night, remaining Atlanta survivors move from outskirts of the city and Rick is elected as new leader of their group by Dale and rest of his group. Then Shane's unexpected death at the hands of Carl Grimes has shaken them even further.

Lori is pissed off by Shane's sudden death and her flashbacks clearly suggest that she had a brief sexual relationship with Shane on Rick's absence, when he was thought dead by both Shane and Lori. Cursing with disgust, she spits at his grave which has gone unnoticed by everyone but they all realize that she is taking it harder than the rest.

On road, they met another survivor Tyreese, his daughter Julie and her boyfriend Chris, all moving together on their journey. They all are welcomed to join Rick's gang and he discusses with Rick how everything around them has changed so drastically after the apocalypse took over as well as their viewpoint on way of living.

Lori reveals to Rick that she is pregnant and then tells everyone else who are both happy and worried to hear that news. Next day, Dale encounters a frozen zombie under the snow filled road which startles him and then Rick kills it.

Survivors took shelter in a series of abandoned houses of "Wiltshire Estates", thinking of starting a new life there as it has enough rooms and food stock. After safely passing a night there, Rick notices a sign outside warning outsiders to stay away but before he could alert his group, they came under attack by a horde of walkers.

Their newest sanctuary quickly turns into a death trap and barely escaped on Dale's RV even after losing Donna to undeads. Later, Carl went hunting with his father only to get accidentally shot by Otis, who mistook him for a zombie. Rick almost attempts to kill him in a fit of rage but Otis leads them to nearby farm of Harshel Greene.

Harshel is a former veterinarian and he successfully manages to save Carl by removing his bullet. He introduces his children Arnold, Billy, Lacey, Maggie, Rachel, Susie Greene as well as Otis' girlfriend Patricia to their group from Atlanta and allowed them to stay in his place while Carl was slowly recovering from his fatal wound.

Meanwhile, Glenn was sitting really upset for not making a move on Carol on time before Tyreese arrived and he wishes not being end up alone. Harshel's daughter Maggie agreed to sleep with him after hearing that because her boyfriend is long gone. She also doesn't want to be alone either and they secretly engage in a relationship.

Harshel informs Rick that Carl is awake and everyone came to see him, including his friend Sophia. Dale talks with Lori about what he thinks about her baby and points out that it maybe of Shane's but tells her not to discuss this matter with Rick at all since it might set him off balance and right now, they all need him as a leader.

Living in Harshel's farm, they all thought that they have finally found a safe place to settle during post-apocalyptic world but they still are not aware of other secret "inhabitants" residing in the farm and what chaos they will unleash upon them.

The Walking Dead Vol 02 – Miles Behind Us

Following events of "Days Gone Bye", Rick and his friends continues their journey in second storyline "Miles Behind Us", collecting issue #07-12 of The Walking Dead ongoing series from Image Comics by by creator/writer Robert Kirkman (Outcast, The Astounding Wolf-Man) and artist Charlie Adlard (Judge Dredd, The X-Files).

Adlard took over drawing responsibilities from issue #7 onwards but co-creator Tony Moore (Fear Agent, Punisher) still continues to serve as regular cover artist for TWD. Though, Adlard ended up continuing a long run from here on but it seems like Moore was always a better choice and far better suited for drawing this entire series.

Unknown Deadly Sight

Majority of events that has taken place with survivors in "Miles Behind Us" was later adapted into Season 2 of AMC's live-action horror drama TV series adaptation of The Walking Dead that aired on 2011. It contained a total of 13 episodes which was quite a stretch compared to a smaller run of six episodes for its first season.

Although tragic events of Wiltshire Estates were not featured, Greene Family Farm was used as the base of entire second season. Rick will lead his fellow survivors into an unknown path of struggle just to make it out in next storyline "Safety Behind Bars" and things will start to take a new turn to a new level that will last longer than expected.

The Walking Dead – Days Gone Bye | Comics

Small town cop Rick Grimes wakes up in a hospital to realize that he is now in a world ruled by undead corpse.

Kentucky sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes wakes up in an abandoned hospital after he was severely wounded by a gunshot in the line of duty. Spending almost a month in coma, he wakes up to shockingly discover that everyone has left the town a while ago except for the ones who walks around and feeds on living.

He managed to stand on his feet after much-less effort to patch himself up and then went on to explore the complex only to accidentally encounter a few undead corpses while wandering around. Rick is even attacked by a few of them at the cafeteria to his utter surprise but somehow managed to save himself from their grasp.

He found a decaying female corpse outside that has been reduced to bones near a bicycle and quickly escapes to his home. There he finds the house empty as well as his wife Lori and son Carl Grimes already gone. Rick is then hit with a shovel on back of his head before meeting up to a man named Morgan Jones and his boy Duane.

Duane actually mistook him as a zombie and he gets updated on how this plague of madness spread about a month ago that unleashed these flesh-eating monsters. Since the outbreak has hit mankind, he and his son are looking out for each other. Rick decides heading for Atlanta where he thinks Lori and Carl had moved to.

They go to Cynthiana Police Department to collect some guns before parting ways and he made a stop midway to put the bicycle girl out of her misery. Then he ran out of gas and when trying to get some fuel from a nearby ranch, he finds rotten corpse of the owner and his family who already has committed group suicide.

As he was leaving, Rick finds a horse inside their barn and picked up a hatchet before resume his journey to Atlanta. They calmly make it to the big city with dead bodies scattered across every turn but while passing through apparently empty streets came under attack shortly by a large horde of Walkers that devoured his horse.

Trying to get a grip with what's happening to him, Rick starts hacking at zombies around him before unexpectedly meeting a survivor named Glenn in alleyways who saves his life. Learning almost everyone in Atlanta is most probably dead, he breaks down thinking of his family but they eventually reach to nearby camp anyway.

There Rick reunites with his family and this reunion made everyone present there happy, except for his best friend and former partner Shane, who is not too excited to see him back from coma. Rick is introduced to Allen and Donna with their kids Ben and Billy, sisters Amy and Andrea, mother-daughter Carol and Sophia.

After encountering a few wandering zombies near campsite, Rick suggests moving their camp from current location, which is close to a city full of undead hordes but Shane strongly disagrees calling it an isolated incident. So, he decides to sneak into the city with Glenn to get more weapons from gun store for better protection.

Using mutilated zombie body parts as camouflage, they managed to get in pretty easily but barely made it out alive from surrounding horde when rain starts pouring all of a sudden. Their stench got washed off, completely blowing their cover and a nervous Rick starts hastily shooting at them as they made a run for their lives.

At campfire during dinner, their camp came under attack by a surprise horde, which left behind heavy causalities. Tension starts rising between Rick and Shane regarding how to keep everyone safe and that lead to a violent conclusion.

Day of Mourning

Primary aspects of this book were adapted for pilot episode of acclaimed TV series The Walking Dead on AMC network, when it has debuted in 2010. Season 1 of that show also took many source materials to establish a base for it.

Kirkman tagged along artist/co-creator Tony Moore (Fear Agent, Punisher) on board to help bringing his vision to light. However, this one remains the only arc in entire series where Moore contributed as both cover artist and illustrator. "Days Gone Bye" is followed by "Miles Behind Us" story up next, also written by Kirkman himself.
