For the record, I meant to say "not like the comic"...Lol.My bad.
What I meant comparing the Rick going insane now, to in the comics is that in the comics, Woodberry is a bit away. So many other things happened before in the comics.
Shane trying to kill him and Carl shooting Shane happened way before. The question of who's baby it was didn't linger like the show. Glenn and the others stayed at the farm. Rick never went to the CDC and has to carry that secret around. He never had Darryl to lean on, which made him much tougher much quicker imo. Many more people died before they found Woodberry. Both Lori and the baby BOTH died together, not in childbirth, but by the Governor. There was no Merle to divide the camp and no body liked Shane from day one. There was no "moral compass" like Dale that kept Rick in touch with his old, good guy self. By time they get to prison, Rick is a much different guy.
The Governor raped Micchoine, not kind of Maggie in the comics, so that's why Glenn's character is different. Maggie gave Glenn a sense of worth he didn't have before, so not being able to protect her has caused him to feel vengeance. Remember the "need a guy go down the well, get Glenn" speech? That makes perfect sense.
The farm was much less important than on the show and Rick didn't have a wise old Hershal to rely on.
In the show, Rick has been forced to deal with things on a much different timeline than the comic. Remember, right now I'm pretty sure it's only been like 10 months on the show since Rick woke up.
In the comics, by the time the battle with Woodbury happens, the baby is like a year old, so in the comics everything that's happening now to Rick, he's much more adjusted to the new world.
I love the show and where it's going, but I get how some people might not.
