    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Jul 11, 2013

    If Neegan is supposed to be the bad guy, why do I love it so much when he's around? In a book dominated by darkness and dismal circumstances Neegan sticks out like a sore"and very profane" thumb. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Jul 16, 2013

    In all that I've not really said anything specific about this issue. Here's the scoop: Kirkman sets you up to believe things are going to go one way and then he twists it around 180 degrees and it goes someplace else. And that new place make perfect sense in the context of the continuing story. I'm left with "How is this situation going to resolve itself?" and a 30-day wait. And I love it. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Jul 12, 2013

    While last issue was a little bit slow,The Walking Dead #112 is very exciting. The story is interesting and high-paced. It pushes the storyline forward and leaves us with a hell of a cliffhanger. The bottom line is that this was a great issue! I can't wait to see how they wrap up the latest volume next issue! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - SuperCap Jul 15, 2013

    The Walking Dead #112 continues the excellent current run for the series, and Robert Kirkman does not appear to be slowing down as All Out War starts up in October. With Rick and his group in a precarious situation at 112's end, the wait until next month's issue will certainly be a long one. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 10, 2013

    On the visual side of things, Charlie Adlard is able to render a bit of zombie-slaying action in addition to the up close and personal standoff between the two leaders, leading to a more visually diverse issue than we've seen of late. The book continues to suffer from the same inconsistent level of detail that has plagued recent issues. I'm looking forward to seeing how Stefano Gaudiano's inks will impact the look of the series when he hops on board in a couple months. Read Full Review

    So even though the direction of the story has been put in question till this issue, it's easy to say that there might still be hope when Kirkman is finally able to turn that dial again to crank up the intensity. Of course that means that means that things are going south for Rick and his crew, but it's nothing new and what we like to see is them overcome these kind of situations. Pacing I find to be very important to this story and hopefully it can keep up this momentum and see this story through to the end. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Jul 9, 2013

    If I have one complaint it's that Carl and Andrea are on the cover facing down Negan with a bloody knife and Image's official description reads: "Carl and Andrea are faced with the unthinkable." While Andrea does play a role here it's not with Carl and it's not an unthinkable situation. It's actually one she's been dying to face. So the cover misleads what really happens in the pages. All in all I feel The Walking Dead is on the upswing again and now Rick's crew are in for a world of hurt. While I'd still like to see Negan go down Kirkman and Adlard have given me reason to at least want to have him stick around a little while longer and by the way this issue ends it's obvious he will.

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Jul 11, 2013

    The similarities between Negan and Rick are becoming more and more abundant. The two men look at the world around them in a very similar way. Negan acts because he has to; he ensures the safety of his group and those close to him. He does so out of necessity, and has a distinct code of honor. Rick is lost. He believes he has honor, but cant listen to anyone long enough to truly display it. He believes he is protecting his group, but seems to be damning them with each decision he makes. Both men seem to stand for the same things. Kirkman is doing some truly amazing work. Read Full Review

    Negan steals the show yet again. He's got the personality that is completely unpredictable and it fits this book perfectly. Rick looks like he's met his match. The coming issues will be very interesting as Kirkman brings this book towards war. I highly recommend picking this up. Read Full Review

    Was it the best issue of ‘The Walking Dead' ever? No. But after this last dragging year, for the first time I feel that this series may be getting its groove back. If “All Out War” can build on this momentum, it could redeem a lot and possibly even rank as one of the best story arcs in this entire series. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 22b&w pgs. All ADs @ back. C Grade cover. . . Too much of what Kirkman has been 'learning from the TV writing room', could be what is pulling this series down. Or maybe its just lazy writing. Kirkman's typically serviceable dialog takes jumps and liberties here that are sophomoric, even the swearing is weak and tired. And i am tired of dumbed down Rick and the plot's non-twists. The minimal zombie action leaves us with the same apocalyptic suburb soap opera as usual. Unfortunately TV gimmicks, like shooting guns out of people's hands, are cheap old bullshit to me. That and more, in this issue, are just phoned in crap. i'd say that Adland and Rathburn save this issue, considering their work is excellent, but Charlie does resort to FIVE splash pages this ish! tWD has been weaker and weaker since issue 100. Which is sad to me, as a long time fan.
