    When all is said and done, the book is great. The cliffhanger at the end, has me anxiously awaiting the conclusion of the story arc in the next issue. There's also a preview for Sina Grace's (Lil' Depressed Boy) new book Not My Bag. Check it out! Read Full Review

    Neither of the things I found myself thinking the most about in this issue may come into fruition. I may be way off base. I do know that one of the best things about this series is waiting to find out if those thoughts or ideas are right or not. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 16, 2012

    The Negan problem is interesting to me. It's nice to see a character who is a match for Rick, but unlike standard superhero books, there's no real way to keep this interaction going in the long term. Negan has to be dealt with quickly or else he'll slide completely down the slope into cliche villainy (his dialogue during the murder last issue guaranteed that) but I'm wondering if the point here isn't how far Rick, Andrea and the others are going to slide trying to eliminate the threat. The Walking Dead #101 is a strong follow-up to last month's big anniversary, and will serve to entertain any new readers who just jumped on with the big One-Oh-Oh, earning 4.5 out of 5 stars overall. There are some moments in the issue that feel troublesomely incompletely, like our goodbye to Maggie, but I'm happier with going a little too quick than I am with the glacial pacing of the TV Season 2.

    I like how this series is starting to pick up again. With different characters given the spotlight to shine and new plot twists, the Walking Dead is once again becoming interesting. I give this issue a 9/10. Read Full Review

    If the series sometimes seemed to drag over the past year or two, it now has a clear sense of purpose and a villain worth loathing again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 16, 2012

    Maybe the group didn't have the crisis of leadership that I expected this issue, but I enjoyed reading every page as it unfolded. After 100+ issues, this series keeps my on my toes even when it isn't being outstanding. Read Full Review

    It's hard to be believe that this arc isn't over yet. That generally means Kirkman has something twisted up his sleeve. This issue resets the pieces as we brace for the next dramatic ending. This series is a must-read each and every month. Read Full Review

    Walking Dead #101 holds true to Kirkman's humane storytelling and his ability to keep a personal connection to a fantastical story. Read Full Review

    After the explosive issue #100, Rick's group suffers the outcome of the encounter with Negan and his people. There are goodbyes and comebacks, but the ending page makes everything really interesting for the ending phase of the event. Adlar is dirty as usual and his zombies are more and more beautiful.
