    This was one of the best issues of TWD I've read in awhile and I cannot wait until next issue! I was not expecting much and the plot turned. Make sure not to miss out on this story arch, this was a huge concept. The effort put forth in this issue was well above excellent. It deserves praise for the cover all the way to the final page.

    The Walking Dead #122 is another strong entry into the "All Out War" story arc. It's not really any longer or shorter than the typical issue, but they pack enough twists and turns into the overall narrative that it's a filling issue. It really feels like enough, and every character we focus on has enough time to breathe and be themselves. It even elevates previous issues, by not let letting us just brush off acts like "performing massive surgery with minimal tools while also dying of the zombie plague" as an easy everyday occurrence. If you like these people, you should enjoy this issue. Read Full Review

    The quality of artist Charlie Adlard never dips. There is no doubt that this man is an absolute expert in drawing the garish faces of zombies by now, but his artistic efforts continue to impress with the human characters as well. There's a shot here featuring the arrival of a very large group of survivors to the hilltop that'll make you want to stop and stare at all of the minute details that help bring this zombie-ruined world to life.

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Mar 10, 2014

    The war sort of slows down inThe Walking Dead #122, but it's still going full speed at the same time. There isn't a battle in this issue, the good guys get to rest, but events are still very much moving forward. Bad guys never rest. They should know this by now. I wasn't bored with the plot, through the slower moments, but it sure did do a good job of making me feel ever the more anxious for the last four issues. I have got a BAD feeling about this.

    We are sure to see more actions next week, and hopefully we can find out if the weapons really work or not. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Feb 26, 2014

    All Out War is shaping up to be one of the best storylinesThe Walking Deadhas seen in a while. Both creators are on the money right now as things head into the final descent. Something big is coming by the end of this storyline, I can feel it. Make sure you're there for the ride. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Mar 1, 2014

    This was a good read. I think this one is better than the previous slower issue. This gives some deception, some tactic talk and some nice (potentially good-bye) conversations. Plus, you get a lot of Negan, which is a good thing. The All Out War seems to be moving to the final battle. It's not clear how the next four issues will play out but the tension is beginning to be felt. This is a good book to pick up. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Feb 27, 2014

    This issue is mostly set-up. Other than getting a little to close to explaining the science of zombies, this issue is perfectly fine. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Feb 26, 2014

    So far Im not convinced. Luckily we have four more chapters to prove just what All Out War is all about. If we go through the motions of attack for one issue and reel for three then Ill be heartily disappointed. Read Full Review

    As for my rating? It was another slower issue, but hopefully it's building toward something huge. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - vashmcdash Feb 26, 2014

    This story arc hasn't really caught me as much as I thought it would of but I feel as Kirkman normally does, he will keep us hanging till the last minute and blow everyone's mind. But if you are invested in this story line this issue has a lot of stuff to tease what comes in the future. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Feb 27, 2014

    Inherently, there is nothing wrong with issues like these. They can often allow the action some breathing room so it doesn't become overbearing. The same would have been true with Walking Dead, if this wasn't the 22nd issue dealing with the same exact villain in much the same way. Even the Governor, who was a much more exciting character, only got 21 issues, and this arc still has four issues left. When you're pushing two years on the same arc, with no variation to it, any filler issue becomes an even bigger albatross. Read Full Review

    More good Kirkman and Adlard storytelling. The chess match continues and we have some interesting moves in this issue, on both fronts. It's neat to get a real sense of the stratagems of the two generals in this war, prior to those plans being undertaking and then seeing in practice how the various plans succeed or fail. I must admit though, I'm not a fan of these newly introduced "infection" rules, as explained by Negan. It seems inconsistent with the WD world as we know it. If you could die and turn just by getting a little zombie goo in a little cut you had on your hand, or in your eyes or mouth, then basically everyone who has ever bashed-in the brains of a zombie should be also be one by now. The only other nitpick I have, why is a two-legged Heath on the cover? Dude lost a leg two issues ago.

    another issue of boring BS, in the form of chatter, chatter, chatter. This is mostly what "all out war" has been, lots of blabber with a little bit of action and barely any zombies. This book is a cliche soap opera at this point, and has been for quite some time. The only redeeming factor is the grey work. In 2 pages alone, Kirkman rips off "Crossed" and introduces the 'we all have it' plotline from the TV show that has no place in the comic. Clearly Kirkman is phoning this in and letting his #1 franchise run on fumes. i suggest everyone stop reading tWD and switch to TPB collections, if you must. Better yet, read it from the library for free!
