Comic Series


Cynthiana, Kentucky

The neighborhood is the home of the Grimes' family residence. It was quickly overrun in the onset of the outbreak and was left abandoned by the residents that lived there.


Early Days

Sometime during the first few weeks of the outbreak, Morgan Jones and Duane Jones hid and survived from the Grimes' family neighbor's house after the death of Mrs. Jones

Rick Grimes awoke from his coma in Harrison Memorial Hospital and used a bike to ride back to his house. After he arrives he finds that the house is empty and many of his family's items gone. He heads back out in sorrow over his family leaving, however he is hit the head with a shovel belonging to Duane Jones. After being incapacitated by the hit, Morgan and Duane transport the unconscious Rick to their home. After awakening Rick is greeted by Morgan who tells him to join him and Duane for dinner, Rick does so and immediately asks what has happened to the world. Morgan explains the situation to Rick and they then decide to head for the town's police station in search of supplies. 

After reaching the station, Rick and Morgan scavenge through the various weapons and ammo, taking what they need. They eventually head back outside where Rick gives Morgan the keys to a police cruiser. After saying their goodbyes, Rick heads out of town towards Atlanta, however he makes a brief stop to put Bicycle Girl down. 

On The Road

Rick later returns to his neighborhood with Carl Grimes and Abraham Ford for supplies, Rick tells Abraham and Carl to wait by the car while he goes and gets various supplies. However he is soon hit in the back of the head with a shovel by Morgan. After realizing that it is Rick he hit he drops the shovel and breaks down, he explains to Rick that Duane was bitten about three months ago and that he has fed him four men and a couple of dogs to keep him nourished. Rick tells Morgan that he can not keep Duane chained up like this and hands him his pistol. Rick gives him a minute to say goodbye and after Morgan "shoots" Duane they depart from the neighborhood, leaving a now unchained Duane behind.

They soon arrive at the town's police station to get what supplies remain there. However Morgan soon begins to smash his head against the wall, Rick yells at him to stop and Abraham tells Rick that they should leave him, Rick tells him it is fine and he is watching him. After gathering the last of the supplies, the four men depart and head back to the rest of the group.
