Oh, you need a shirt that reminds people to shoot any Walkers in the head with a crossbow, much like Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) would? It looks like Hot Topic has one of those. Ask, and the internet delivers! Now, if only we knew what Daryl would do in every situation...
Honestly, we're not 100% sure how long Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was in a coma. From the time frames given in The Walking Dead comics, we know it was at least a month — right after waking up from his coma, Rick is told that "all media shut down after a few weeks" of zombie apocalypse, and when Rick and Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) reunited for the first time, it was "the best news [Donna] heard all month." We're guessing that the comic book writers meant to imply that the coma was a little longer than that, although the Walkers did spread quickly.
Nope! Rick Grimes is not in the Telltale-made game series based on the comics, because, in an appropriate follow-up to the last question, he was still in a coma. Only three characters present in the TV series make an appearance in the game: Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson), Shawn Greene (who's a Walker by the time the comics and TV series take place), and Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun).
