    Now the group has mastered the art of boating, the possibility is endless. Yes, the main idea is food source (fishes!), but I would really like to see what other countries are dealing with the zombie situations. No, I'm not talking about cutaways with brand new characters, but our survivors physically visiting those locations. I know Kirkman is against the idea of showing what the rest of the world is doing, but why not now? Maybe this will be the next story arc. A truly bigger world indeed. Read Full Review

    A really solid read, we are starting to learn more about the communities and how all our favourite characters are living. There has been some more character development taking place in the absence of any action. But with Carl having gone to follow The Whisperers in search of Lydia, action must certainly be around the corner. Read Full Review

    Storytelling issues aside, The Walking Dead #139 is still a worthwhile read. Fans of Michonne will be thoroughly engrossed as she divulges in her past. The dialogue is consistent and delivers all the right notes through Adlard's artwork. The book just needs to find a way to stay on topic in order to become a must read. Read Full Review

    If you've been waiting for Michonne and Ezekiel then you finally have what you wanted. However, if you like some plot movement or even some resolution to plots that have been the focus for six months then you will be disappointed. I'm not thrilled that Kirkman has shifted focus without closing some of the other plots out but we'll see where this is headed. This is an average Walking Dead comic book but a comic book worth buying nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Things stall a bit here. It's not horrible. You get some character growth but not enough to make this issue anymore than a dull bump on the Walking Dead radar.
