In the comic, there was no "walkie talkie communications plan" like they had in the Show, either. Rick basically took them to his Sheriff's office, gives them some guns and a police cruiser. He takes his and they go their separate ways.
If I remember correctly, there was a walkie talkie plan, and Rick does try to contact him every now and then.
I could tell you, but it would spoiler it for you if they follow the comics.
