    I was very excited for this issue due to the tease of the introduction of the new character. What we got here was a lot more than that; as well as being slightly unexpected. There was some fantastic character development here, not just on the above characters mentioned, but also a few more in smaller scenes in this issue. I love how focused Kirkman still is on doing things like this. It is his baby and it is clear that he is still taking care of it in the same way as he has been from day 1. Charlie Adlards' art was also even better than usual in this issue. It truly is a great instalment, and one that I am sure TWD fans will enjoy as much as I did. Read Full Review

    This was a pretty major issue. It's nicely balanced with big story and intimate moments, with some really interesting new shades to long-running characters like Carl, Andrea and Michonne. Not one to skip! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 15, 2013

    Kinda a weird issue. It does show us even more of the broader world and that's good. But, we step away from some of the bigger philosophical questions that TWD has been playing with–and that's bad. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Mar 13, 2013

    Is it bad to have these things happen? No, but it's kinda weird when both series have been able to successfully exist on their own paths for three years now. It's definitely a trend that I hope doesn't continue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 13, 2013

    Visually, this issue one of the weaker installments we've seen in a while. Every so often Charlie Adlard's pencils start to lose detail and become more loose and haphazard. That problem persists for much of the issue, and any panel with the characters not in close focus will see the figures devolve into glorified silhouettes with only basic facial features. In addition, the contrast of the ink washes isn't strong enough, creating a muddy effect. I've said it before, but I'd much rather see the series ship on a slower schedule if it meant the art quality could remain more consistent. Read Full Review

    The preview for next month's issue shows us Maggie and Sophia. It's been a while since we've seen them, hasn't it? I can't wait to read the next issue and I'm really giving Kirkman a shot at redemption. In the meantime, feel free to comment about “The Walking Dead” #108. What theories do you guys have on Dwight? What about Ezekiel? Does he seem dependable or not? Read Full Review

    Walking Dead is a great book. One of the very best. Some issues really connect and make you thankful you read this book in single issue format. Others feel like they are just part of a collection and really don't satisfy individually. This issue falls into the latter category. This is exactly what an average issue of Walking Dead looks like. It's still better than ninety percent of what I read. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Michael Moore Mar 22, 2013

    Some pages had lack of emotion or character on the survivors faces and there were a couple of pointless page fillers this month, it's still worth a read to get the understanding of next month's plot, but just don't expect deep storytelling. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Mar 17, 2013

    Nothing too exciting happens in this issue. We are shown a new community called the Kingdom, lead by a man named King Ezekiel. He also hates Negan and his Saviors and it looks like he'll fight against them. Meanwhile, other subplots are fleshed out a bit. Michonne wants to become more outgoing and friendly. Carl needs to improve his awareness because of his lack of seeing what can be on his right side (if you didn't know, he's missing his right eye). Then there's a twist at the end like there always is.

    At this point, The Walking Dead has become the family member I should turn my back on, but I just keep giving the relationship one more shot. Then, as always, I am kicked in the nuts by said family member's actions. What will it take before I say "NO MORE!!" and give tough love a chance? It could possibly be issue #108, where writer Robert Kirkman not only jumps the shark, he filets it and serves it as the kind of fish sticks you'd find in a seedy carnival in a soiled part of town.

    Maybe the plot is a little bit dragging, but I'm still up for the game for sure after the introduction of who seems like another very charismatic character: Ezekiel and his tiger Sheeva. It's rather unusual for the series (if not the first time) that a good guy is extremely over the top, and the king of the Kingdom definitely is in a lot of ways. His dreamlike reign is something different from all the gruesome and "real" stuff the creative team gave us all these years, and it seems like a good idea. Adlar was quite weak this month, but his dirty style is acceptable even when sloppy.

    . . $3, 22b&w pgs. B cover, all ADs@back. . . While im glad that this phase is moving along, and that Rick isnt a coward, this new development leaves me wondering if Kirkman has finally resorted desperate measures. The critical crowd has chirped for awhile now that he has been repeating the same cycles and 'shock deaths' for awhile now. i was loathe to agree, but after issue #100 there is no way to deny it. so is this new character a sign of a new direction? maybe we will see ninjas next!. . . . . . . ______. . . . . Also, did Carl just age between the last issue and now? he looks to be a teen/tween in this issue, whereas he sure looked a lot younger in previous issues! Still Mr. Adlard puts in an excellent effort as usual. Nice drawing a tiger for a change, eh?
