First Image of Walking Dead's Rick Grimes, post-apocalyptic American hero

Meet Walking Dead's Rick Grimes. Rick fell into a coma and woke up to a zombie-infested world. Now he's just trying to find his family. Father, husband, cop, Rick Grimes is the everyman hero forced to make impossible decisions.

AMC just released the first ever image of Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln. Looks great, but we're not sold until we see Grimes take a hatchet to the skull of a "walker."

The TV series is based on Robert Kirkman's monthly comic, Walking Dead about a group of survivors that band together after the end of the world. Grimes, a Georgia cop, becomes the groups "leader" but trust us, it's a shitty job.

The series will air in October.
