What I think is important about this image is that it shows Karl is making decisions, being assertive. He is not the little boy from 15 issues ago. After all he has suffered, he is now growing up quickly, and this is also shown in the diversion tactics he employs to distract the 'herd' later on in this issue.
Taken from page 4 of The Walking Dead #60, available now.
Also, special mention for the cover of Moon Knight #29;
which is the most arresting cover image I have seen in a long time. I may even check Moon Knight out again, something I haven't done since Bill Sienkiewicz was the artist back in the early to mid 80s.
