    It's incredible to me that after so many issues I am still amazed at how Charlie Adlard captures the tone of the story in every face and in every drawn line and facial expression. You definitely get a sense of what each character senses and feels almost to the point that you can gauge what they are thinking. For a comic book to elicit something of that nature in its readers makes me excited to be a comic book fan, let alone a 'Walking Dead' one. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Jun 17, 2014

    The Walking Dead #128 is another compelling issue in the series. The action has been toned down for time being and I find that refreshing. There's a great deal of good dialogue and character development to keep the story going. I'm enjoying filling in the gaps from the fast forward in time, trying to analyze the new group, and wondering about what big event is going to happen next. The bottom line is that this issue isn't particularly a special one, but it's definitely another solid one. Read Full Review

    While there is a bit of zombie action, most fans will probably be a bit disappointed considering the portents of potential death delivered by this month's cover. However, where this issue succeeds is in its development of characters such as Eugene and especially Carl. Read Full Review

    The new characters need a LOT of additional development. Magna is the only one whose name I can remember. But their storyline hints at some much needed action and drama. ‘All Out War' didn't deliver what I wanted it to, so here's hoping this fresh start returns this book to being one of the certified “must read” books every month.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Jun 15, 2014

    TWD is still a very solid comic. Well written, nicely illustrated, it really drives home how much some of these characters have evolved since issue #1. The pace is a little slow though and there isn't much “WOW!” anymore. I'm sure it will come, but for now you're buying this comic with an eye towards a payoff in 20 issues. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Asaph Bitner Jun 18, 2014

    “The Walking Dead #128″ gives us a further glimpse into Rick Grimes' grand new society, and also provides us a fair dose of suspicion regarding the parts of the story that aren't being told. I do hope that a goal is set for these characters soon, since my personal investment in seeing the day-to-day goings-on of a doomed world are limited. So far, however, I'm still enjoying the post-time jump story. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead is building up to the next blow-up so you need to sit tight through issues like this one. It's a decent read but nothing special. I'm sure while reading a trade paperback these pages would seem like opening pages but in single issues, they read like a throwaway issue unfortunately. One of the best books on the stands has an off issue here. It happens. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead #128 isn't heart-thumping, but it's a score in terms of plot development. Read Full Review

    The idea that a new group of survivors don't trust Rick and the others is exciting to me. Cant wait for the next issue. As usual.

    There's no denying that I'm still really enjoying this series. This issue seemed to be filled with largely unimportant events and dialogue. Much of it just reiterates subjects that were explored or hinted at in the previous issue. I don't get the cover which doesn't relate to anything in the story, nor the tagline "After all this time, she should be more prepared." It's weirdly unrelated to the story. And the end was strange--are we being led to believe that something is not on the up-and-up in Alexandria? Well, like I said, despite all the nit-picks, I nevertheless am on board for the next issue and probably many more to come.

    i really don't know what to say about tWD at this point. Kirkman has broken another one of his "rules" for the series by jumping time. It seems like this is getting more redneck friendly each issue. i'm saddened by all the new characters i couldn't care less about. Well, that's what happens when you kill off the well developed ones for stunts.
