The Walking Dead, Issue #71Charlie Adlard, Robert Kirkman, Cliff Rathburn
The issue begins with Douglas apologizing to Heath for his outburst after Heath mentioned Davidson at the end of Issue 70. Regina remains suspicious of Rick and the rest of his group.
Outside, a confrontation has erupted between Carl and another boy called Mikey over Carl's gun.
After Carl refused to let Mikey see his gun, Mikey pushed Carl. Rick arrives just after Carl knocks down Mikey in retaliation. Rick understands Carl's actions, but tells him to restrain himself with the other kids. Carl apologizes, but Mikey rejects his apology and runs to tell his father, Nicholas.
