Ezekiel vs. Michonne?

    Comic Bastards - Jordan North May 9, 2013

    The scene is wonderfully done with great lines written on both sides and really expert characterization getting to show out (Takes notes. Seriously. I know I did). Watching the king make an ass out of himself and basically show his belly, “ rule number one is to never bullshit a bullshitter”, to Michonne to get her to do the same was brilliant (seriously whens the last time you’ve seen that woman crack a smile) and heartwarming. Sometimes all it takes to win over a heart of stone is a story about an orphaned tiger at the end of the world. Life lesson learned indeed. Read Full Review

    Ket's Comics - Michael Bowie May 15, 2013

    Listen, I love this book. You'd be hard pressed to convince me there's a better title on the market today. As good, maybe, but not better. And this issue is jam packed from beginning to end. It's not all action, but it's all entertaining and definitely a good read. If you haven't picked this one up yet, now's the time, something big is coming in the next few issues. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno May 7, 2013

    If you are not reading Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's survival story you are missing out on some of the best humanizing scenes in comics to date. The fears, the joys, the loss and the victories. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker May 10, 2013

    Overall, this is easily the best issue in a long time, but also one of the best the series has ever released. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene May 13, 2013

    You are not really sure what her feelings are towards him. Could they be respect, attraction, or is she simply keeping an enemy close? This is an excellent issue all around with a lot of fun elements that all build to what is going to be a violent and bloody affair. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 8, 2013

    Charlie Adlard's artwork is a bit stronger overall than it has been in recent issues. While the general level of detail still fluctuates a bit, Adlard benefits from panels that tend to feature one or two characters rather than larger groups. My one real complaint is that the closest thing this issue has to an action sequence is brought down by some poor framing. Read Full Review

    A lame first half and a very strong second half. I guess that averages out to “good”. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 10, 2013

    Long story short? I enjoyed this issue a lot, as it reminds me of what I always enjoyed about this world while not undermining the seriousness of the survivors' plight and the upcoming conflict with Negan. (It may help that the foul-mouthed jerk doesn't appear in the issue at all, and I kind of hope to see Maggie take him out as this storyline plays on.) The Walking Dead #110 does indeed rekindle my love affair with Kirkman's quirky world and the characters, and he takes great pains to play fair with even the goofiest elements of the story, but in the long run it's all about seeing Michonne's subtle grin, leaving the book with a well-earned 4 out of 5 stars overall... Now, if only the TV show can dig itself out of the pit that finale dug, I'll be another voice in the wilderness, crying "KIIIRKMAAAN!" Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jumbus_Christ May 10, 2013

    The emotional weight this issue has makes you care about the Kingdom and Ezekiel. I can only hope the character stays around, but then again this is “The Walking Dead”, so he may be gone next month. Read Full Review

    I know some people are still upset that Glenn's death still hasn't been avenged, and I can understand that. It does seem odd that everyone has sort of gone back to normal. But I think there is going to be a big payoff soon… at least there better be! But taken for its own merits, this issue delivers. Charlie Adlard's art is as dependable as ever. At this point, I can't imagine anyone else taking over. It just wouldn't be the same. I like that interesting new cast members are being introduced at a point when most books would be eschewing any sort of character development or new elements and racing toward the big blow out fight scene. That said, when Negan goes down, it needs to be slow and painful! Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero May 9, 2013

    Kirkman time and time again has reminded us to keep on the edge of our seat, leading us to believe something major is on the horizon to forever change the course of the story, and Rick's life. Ezekiel is a compelling character, but his ability to defeat Negan is suspect. For whatever reason, artist Charlie Adlard's Negan seems less imposing than normally depicted in this issue; most likely because the villain is missing his classic smug smile when dishing out a beating. The camps' gathering to bring the fight to Negan seems a bit slow, but it's still fun to read about the characters' backgrounds. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Roderick Ruth May 8, 2013

    What's exciting about this issue is that we are dealing with entirely new people, situations and environments in The Walking Dead realm. There are only so many scenarios that our beloved main characters can experience before things might start to feel a bit boring or redundant, and this issue sort of welcomes a fresh perspective and lets Rick Grimes take a backseat for once. It's not necessarily an important Walking Dead issue, but it's a decent indication that we won't be over saturated with things we've already seen before. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson May 7, 2013

    Charlie Adlard's art remains consistent but I just don't think he's been given much to do lately. Lots of exposition and talking between characters but little in the way in action. You get fooled into a Ezekiel vs. Michonne fight and I only wish it had been more confrontational and Michonne would have questioned Ezekiel's authenticity harder. The Walking Dead is still a very cool story but the time for a real fight is sorely needed. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli May 11, 2013

    Walking Dead is consistently one of the best books each and every month. This issue is no different. There is tension and there is a lot drama, even if short lived. The book doesn't provide anything particularly memorable but it does entertain. There simply aren't enough comics that entertain month after month. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray May 12, 2013

    While the small screen format has created its own ways of trying to spice up repetition for the masses, Kirkman's method now seems to be "wash, rinse, repeat". This is undoubtedly deliberate, and was always a stated intention of the serialised format. However, as we face yet another showdown between two warring settlements, we feel as though we've seen this all before: Woodbury, the Alexandria Safe-Zone and now The Kingdom. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Syndicate - Marc May 9, 2013

    This issue is extremely unsatisfying. There is barely anything in it to push the current story arc forward.The Walking Dead franchise should have enough cache by now to either add more pages to each issue, or release the book more frequently. Though, Kirkman actually addresses this in almost every letters column as something that heisn'twilling to do. If thatisthe case, they need to stop wasting the few panels they have on irrelevant information. Should this trend continue, I highly suggest fans wait for TPB editions to keep them from completely losing interest. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson May 8, 2013

    At this point, the only surprising thing about Walking Dead is how it can outdo itself in mediocrity. Each time I think the series has bottomed out, it surprises me by sinking lower. I'm on pins and needles to see how Negan is defeated. I can't even imagine the levels of suck that Kirkman will wallow in. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 22b&w pgs. weak tease cover. All ADs @ back! . . . Charlie Adlard is a machine, a machine that makes sweet sweet illustration and i appreciate his efforts. His consistent teamwork with Rathburn has really made this series for me. I have noticed some style change over the years, a little less compressed & detailed maybe. i do worry about his use lately of repeating panels, but i figure it came from doing an issue every 3 weeks! i hope they give him some breathing room to flex the artist in the man more. This issue: no zombies, more drama, more blah. WTF Kirkman? TV ruin ya?
