Just caught up via the latest trade. Carl getting shot was a MAJOR surprise. Not as surprised I was when his wife and daughter were killed, though. Judging from the damage it's a bit of a backpeddle that he's even still alive.
I wouldn't stop reading, but I don't see how Rick's character could go on after that and it seems the series would effectively end itself, Sopranos style.
In other news, Abraham is fast becoming my favorite character.
