Read full description of the books The Walking Dead, Issue #5:Rick starts to teach the people in the camp how to use the guns. Andrea stands out as the fastest learner. Carl is allowed to carry a gun much to his mother's displeasure.
Donna expresses her disgust that Dale, the elder man, is living in the same camper as the young sisters, Andrea and Amy.
Rick, Shane and Dale go to chop wood for the fire and they both tell Dale they have no problem with him and the girls living together, Dale tells them there is nothing going on and he just likes having a female to clean up and be around the RV. Shane and Rick also get into an argument after Rick says they need more fire wood because of the cold. Shane takes this as another attempt to move the camp.
Everyone at the camp gathers around the fire at night to eat a freshly cooked meal and get to know each other more.
Dale tells everyone that he was a salesman for almost forty years and after he retired him and his wife traveled in his camper, they had been attacked and his wife killed. After he put his wife to rest he headed to Atlanta to meet some cousins and he heard on the radio that it was the safest place to be. Dale met Andrea and Amy on the road at Atlanta and picked them up. Andrea took time off her job as a clerk for a law firm to drive her sister Amy back to collage when there car broke down and Dale picked them up.
Glenn told everyone he was a delivery boy for a pizza place, he was deep in debt and was about to move back with his estranged parents.
Allen was a show salesman and had taken his wife Donna and twin boys Billy and Ben from Gainesville to Atlanta where they found Dale and the sisters had setup a campsite.
Jim told them all he was a mechanic but that's all he had to say about his life.
Carol said that her husband was the breadwinner and she had taken care of her daughter Sophia and did some Tupperware selling, her husband was a car salesman and could talk anyone into anything including talking Carol info marrying him. Her husband has watched his parents die right after the dead started to rise and he never got over it. Losing her husband she took Sophia to her sisters in Atlanta but never made it and ended up at the camp.
Once everyone had shared, Amy got up to use the restroom but as she entered the RV she was attacked and bitten. Zombies had lumbered into the camp and when the shots stop they had killed all the undead. Amy was dead and Jim had gotten bitten on the arm.
As tension between couples rise, the group begins to get to know one another better. You can tell that time is passing again, even though there isn't a "the next day" or "a week/month later". The men's breads have grown in more and the atmosphere is getting colder. We keep seeing more and more snow in the frames.
Robert Kirkman does an excellent job with the storyline. You get to know background on each of the group without having to see massive amounts of flashbacks or taking up a whole issue. You find out the basics but you get a feel for each person with how Kirkman makes the characters talk and interact. Tony Moore sets the mood with their expressions and body language.
I both love and hated this issue. It goes back to gray tones again. I love the use of them for a most part with shadows and stark features and details that are more noticeable because you aren't lost with all the colors and normalcy of it to over look them. However, when it comes to gray tones and its a night scene, I kind of get so muddled in the darkness of the frames that I have a hard time focusing on the details or movements of the individuals. I know their aren't many like this and I'm grateful for it, but with such an important part of this issue being the conversations of getting to know each other it just seemed a bit over the top to have something like a walker attack happen with so much darkness around it. I say this because within the next few pages after the initial attack with Amy, the frames lighten and you can see the full detail of Jim's deranged features. Hence, I loved it and hated it.
The differences between the comic and the series are only a few again. Seems to be a pattern so far. The major difference I would say is that when the camp gets attacked by walkers this time Rick and Glenn are at the camp already. In the series this walker attack doesn't occur until Rick, Glenn, T-Dog and Daryl are coming back from getting Rick's gun bag and trying to find Daryl's brother Merle. Of course this isn't from the comic since Daryl, Merle and T-Dog aren't in the story line at this point (if ever). Amy does get attacked in both but the way Andrea handles it in the series is a bit more emotional. She actually lets Amy come back as a walker before she shots her in the head. In the series several of the group are killed at this point as well. Several of the off hand members, Carol's husband Ed, Amy and Jim is bitten and like in the comic, tries to hide it.
Even with the love/hate relationship I have with this issue, I still recommend it as always to fandom of The Walking Dead Universe, dystopian, zombie and apocalypse genres.
