As fans of the comics know, in the The Walking Dead comic books,

The governor cut off Rick's hand. Apparently, the artists sometimes forget this, and in multiple cases, they have supposedly drawn him with two hands after the run in with the governor.

I haven't seen any such images myself, despite having looked for them.

Do they exist? If so, can you find a few instances of this continuity error, including issue numbers, and provide images of at least some of them?

    @TomSterkenburg - I'm pretty sure they do, but it will make the question less likely to attract downvotes, so I edited. – Wad Cheber Sep 25 '15 at 20:39

    It seems like a fine question to me. Maybe perhaps asking for a list, but other than that, pretty solid. – Premier Bromanov Sep 26 '15 at 0:25

According to this page, Issue 123:

ISSUE 59

Even though Rick had his right hand amputated by The Governor in #28, there is a panel in this issue which shows Rick with both of his hands while holding Carl, after getting out of the car in the middle of the herd attack.

This one I couldn't find, but I suspect that it might be someone confused over this panel, which has both of Carl's arms around Rick's stub:

    Honestly, I think they're confused in Issue 59. – FuzzyBoots Sep 26 '15 at 4:02
  • I actually had the same thought about issue 59, but I wasn't sure. That's certainly the only panel that could conceivably be misconstrued as depicting Rick with two hands. – Wad Cheber Sep 27 '15 at 0:20
  • Bounty tomorrow, by the way. – Wad Cheber Sep 27 '15 at 0:21
  • 11 hours remaining before I can open a bounty. – Wad Cheber Sep 27 '15 at 8:01
  • I've been there before. – FuzzyBoots Sep 27 '15 at 11:16
