    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson Jun 27, 2015

    The rest of the issue that doesn't focus on Rick and company is brief, receiving no more than a page or two. Some of the dialogue is a little clunky: “The world is my father, and I've got its looks” is one of those things that sounds better in your head than out loud. They feel like little reminders that there's a fragile life that Rick has built that is on the verge of being swept away by yet another war. Nothing of terrible significance happens apart from Ezekiel running off, but it's not the point. The peace and relative bliss of the last sixteen issues is about to come to an end, and these scenes that were reminiscent of ordinary life pre-apocalypse will likely come to an end. Perhaps everything can be averted next issue, but it doesn't look good. Read Full Review

    Fox Force Five News - Keven Skinner Jun 25, 2015

    For being another set-up chapter, issue 143 still does a great job building tension and if the last couple pages are any indication coupled with Kirkman's comments in the letter section – shit is about to get serious in 144 right before SDCC 2015. The Whisperers are not the idle threat I thought they were initially. Read Full Review

    "Walking Dead" is driving towards a big issue. This is still just setting things up for that big issue but there is a nice cliffhanger to keep the reader coming back for more. The book struggles in some of the dialogue as it appears Kirkman allows for the characters to make assumptions that leave the reader to decide how they arrived at them. The comic book packs in some drama but doesn't put the reader on the edge of their seat. This is a good read, but an average "Walking Dead" read. Give it a look. Read Full Review
