The Walking Dead (Comic Following AMCTV Seasons 1-3)
Comic Story Version: Wounded in the line of duty, Cynthiana, Kentucky police officer Rick Grimes awakens from a coma in the hospital to find his town filled with walking corpses. He travels to Atlanta, Georgia in search of his wife Lori and seven-year-old son Carl, and finds them in a small camp outside the ruined city, under the leadership of his partner and best friend Shane (who, unbeknownst to Rick, had an affair with Lori). After a fatal zombie attack on the camp, Rick begins to frequently criticize Shane for his decision-making, while at the same time earning the rest of the group's trust and becoming a co-leader. They end up being at odds with what the next move for the group should be. Shane eventually is overwhelmed with his jealousy toward Rick and, following a public outburst, pulls a gun on him when the two are alone in the woods, only to be shot dead by Carl (who had secretly followed them). Now the de facto leader, Rick decides the survivors need to leave Atlanta and find a safer place to call home.
