The Walking Dead, Issue #40Charlie Adlard, Robert Kirkman, Cliff Rathburn
Lori and Rick Grimes welcome their new daughter, Judith, to the world. On the same night, Dale finds left foot amputated to prohibit the spread of the zombie infection he received when a zombie bit him. While Dale adjusts to being handicapped in such a dangerous world, everyone who is able to learn how to use the firearms that a contingent of survivors have acquired are practicing their aim outside. Rick finds time to speak to Dale, noting how things feel ominous, and the lack of events now may change any time soon.
