    Comicsverse - Mark Hassenfratz Feb 4, 2016

    This issue also ends on one of the biggest cliffhangers I've ever seen, and is a huge game changer for the series. It's important to consider this issue in the greater scheme of THE WALKING DEAD: Such a tame issue always signals that, soon, we're going to see some of this comic's trademarked action scenes. All in all, this issue does its job well while setting the stage for future action. Go forth and read! Read Full Review

    GWW - Sarah Payne-mills Feb 8, 2016

    This is a great issue to follow the overhyped issue 150. Issue 150 certainly had some great elements and laid the groundwork for future issues. And Kirkman didn't wait to pick up the pieces. We get a lot to look forward to in this issue, and plotlines are starting to take action. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson Feb 10, 2016

    A lot of little things are being set in motion: Michonne taking over for Ezekiel, Dwight training the army, Eugene discovering more survivors, and even Gabriel volunteering to fight. Those little things are going to become more significant too. The pessimist in me thinks something bad will come of all of this, but if nothing else, it will be fun to watch. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Garrett Walz Feb 8, 2016

    The art by Charlie Adlard is some of the best art i have seen in a comic book. To be consistent with character's for 100 issues or so is a great feat, anytime i see a character on the page i know who it is not to say that's impossible with any other book but i can look at the face of the characters and not think that it could be someone else because it is 100% that person.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 4, 2016

    It's always exciting when The Walking Dead kicks off a major new storyline. This issue opens on a terrific note, as a training ground quickly degenerates into another battle for survival. Those pages stand out as one of the most visually memorable Walking Dead sequences in recent memory. Unfortunately, that momentum doesn't last throughout the issue as zombie action makes way for talking heads. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Feb 4, 2016

    The Walking Dead #151 introduces the idea that our communities really need a militia. The issue open strongly with great spread page and actions, and it quickly establishes how much training these people really need. It's also a fun way to look that Rick might not be as capable as he used to be two years ago. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead #151 may not be the most exciting issue in the long running ongoing series, but it does its job in setting up the next big event. The creative team also use this time to introduce a few new developments, with the final product leaving us with more than enough to be enticed about the next issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Patrick Healy Feb 6, 2016

    The hardest part of the series is being one hundred and fifty-one issues in and wondering at what point to give up and walk away. Every issue is discouraging and it forces even the most die-hard fans to ask at what point are you are simply dead with no interest in coming back? Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Feb 6, 2016

    "Walking Dead" provides an exciting opening to this issue. The group are training with zombies when things get out of hand. The remainder of the issue is much slower as Rick gathers information and has conversations with various characters. The comic struggles with the larger cast, especially when it tries to bring the other communities into the mix. Without the deep character looks that Kirkman previously provided, each of these characters, outside of the core few, feel so generic. This has been a problem with the series for a number of years now and the problem is beginning to multiple with each individual issue. The artwork is very strong, especially with the heavy action in the beginning of the book. I recommend checking this out, but this is as average an issue of "Walking Dead" that you will find.

    This issue supposedly serves as a new jumping-on point for the series, but at this point 150 issues in, can there ever really be a true jumping on that doesn’t leave the reader with a TON of homework to do to find out what the heck this, that and the other thing means??? But beyond that, this was a really good book- I loved Rick continuing to check in on Negan, and seeing Michonne’s progress through her mental block (or just reservations toward being among people who care for her) with Rick was a really nice moment in the story. Dwight’s arc is getting to wear a bit thin, and I am hopeful that his new girlfriend can help to keep him from messing up too badly. I really hope to see more way-cray stuff from the Whisperers, because they are some of the most messed up bad guys in Walking Dead yet. I love that they wear zombie facemasks, and I think that is the most freaky and dynamic visual for a zombie apocalypse story yet. I really hope that things keep up the pace that was set after All Out War, because this issue was a bit slower and just felt like more of a setup issue than anything else, but it was a really well written and drawn story, so I enjoyed it quite a bit all the same.
