    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Aug 14, 2013

    Adding to the mix is Charlie Adlard's minimalist and always spot on face/body artwork. All this comes together to make this universe feel real, which is so important for a book that is, ultimately, about people and how they deal with seemingly insurmountable circumstances. In this, as usual, Kirkman and his team knock it out of the park. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Aug 15, 2013

    The Walking Dead #113 is a thrill ride of an issue. While the plot wasn't exactly pushed forward in this issue, there is plenty of action and character interaction. Lots of great dialogue. All in all a great story and great story as usual.#113 isn't a perfect issue, but it is still another amazing chapter inThe Walking Dead story. It's a must-read, as always! Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - joedwardlewis Aug 12, 2013

    In terms of plot progression, very little happens. This is a Kirkman trait, what he's best at, 'the calm before the storm'. It makes for an exceptional issue, of an incredible series, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in the coming months (issue 115 will ship with 12 covers). As the pendulum swings from one camp to the other, my heart rate escalated from resting to maximum in minutes. The final page is another TWD stalwart moment, akin to that in issue 24 Read Full Review

    The very first page of this issue put me on the edge of my seat. Hats off to Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn for the stellar work. Read Full Review

    Not the meaty resolution that we probably wanted, but a very taut issue nonetheless. TWD creates some wonderful atmosphere with the talents of Charlie Adlard. Read Full Review

    The art, by regular Charlie Adlard, is excellent as usual. The pacing and storytelling are his strong suit and as usual, he delivers. My favorite subtle contribution he makes is his depiction of Negan. He conveys his rage and smarmy confidence both adeptly, but on thing he does, which I just noticed this issue, is that he often obscures his face with shadows, illustrating his dark nature. Not always, but it happens at least once per page. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 14, 2013

    On the plus side, Charlie Adlard's art is unusually effective in this issue. Perhaps it's the more zoomed-in, intense nature of the script, but Adlard highlights all the raw emotion and suffering of the story without any of the inconsistent line-work and level of detail that have hindered some recent chapters.

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Aug 16, 2013

    Kirkman seems to have forgotten about Ezekiel and Jesus. The world of the book has become too expansive, and every character cannot be fully serviced with each issue. However, if the world of the forgotten characters clashes with the world were in here the book might hit its best stride in years. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Roderick Ruth Aug 14, 2013

    More or less, this issue delivers a lot of what we've come to expect from the world of The Walking Dead " solid visual story telling, slow tension building, with some overdramatic violence sprinkled in. Purveyors that are looking for gratuitous zombie killing should look elsewhere from this issue as the undead slaying is nonexistent. Much credit should be given to Robert Kirkman for not giving in to the "zombie porn" impulse and allowing the story to breathe and let the true monsters shine in this issue. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Aug 15, 2013

    The Walking Dead #113 makes for an entertaining read and this is all because of the sadistic and perverted mind of the villain. While Negan is probably Ricks most formidable foe, the reader cannot help but like him. He is not shy to kill and punish, yet he seems to have a warped sense of honour and a great strategic mind. Prepare for a cliff hanger of an ending as Kirkman drags out this clash between these two formidable opponents. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 18, 2013

    In short, The Walking Dead #113 suffers from the same problems I've been feeling in this book since #100, with glacial plotting, endless posturing and dumb decisions being masked as in-character tactical brilliance. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 22b&w pgs. B grade cover. ALL ADs @ back! . . tWD continues to suffer Kirkman's masturbatory exercises in how to drown his popular franchise in TV writing bullshit. A once great series that stood on its own has since fallen into meaningless character deaths and blabbering boring 2-D villains. The days of character rich, zombie survival are over and i wonder if the TV show, money or whatever has lead to this phoned in garbage. I considered this title to be my absolute favorite on the market from #1, but since the craptacular sell-out that was #100 i have to agree with the critics and sigh in disbelief. Kirkman continues to write Rick as stupid, and now other characters do the same. Who the heck turns her back on a machete wielding enemy to try to line up a shot? who the heck slashes an arm (difficult to do in that position) when a head or throat attack only makes sense?? Where the fuck are the ZOMBIES?!? Not to mention how boring it is to read exposition during a stand-off! Negan is officially an idiotic creation.... Adlard & Rathburn continue to bring excellent artwork, but Charlie gets a deduction for ripping of THE ADICTS' T-shirt and making it look moronic...____...BTW Robbie: we don't die" is a moronic catchphrase that is counter to the series and everything the survivors have experienced! Way to sell crap to your fans, guess you need more T-shirts & bumper stickers? Its time to look for a good jumping off point IMHO.
