This book has had consistently superb artwork, and the story, in typical Robert Kirkman fashion, will vary wildly from a dialogue heavy (read: slower) issue, to one that flies by and is filled with fast-paced craziness. this issue has a bit of both to close out the third arc and bring us the last installment before the TV series premier in June (which is sad, ill have a nice book missing off my read pile for a couple months). this series has been riddled with questions, and the answers are never close to being revealed- this issue does more of that. we see what Sydney has been up to, gathering the “possessed” together before the Great Merge (whatever that is) to work their way through the problems they are facing. This issue gives the series it’s biggest hurdle to overcome yet- **SPOILERS** Sydney, the lead baddie kidnaps Kyle (The Outcast) and ties him up. i don’t really know what this means, because i don’t exactly know what ANY of this means, but i can assure you that the main bad guy having the good guy in his clutches is NEVER good. hopefully, like a classic Bond villain monologue moment, once Sydney says “no, Mr Barnes, i expect you- to die!” we see Kyle really putting on his 007 pants and kicking some serious booty! this book has been an amazing read, and its crazy to think it’s been 18 issues, a couple years AND an entire production cycle for a TV show to get made to this point. Robert Kirkman is taking over, and i for one am glad to serve my bearded overlord.
