    This arc has been great so far. I wish I could review this whole arc at once because I wish I could read this whole arc at once. The pacing of this conflict has been great so far and I can't wait for the next installment. Read Full Review

    The issue is a solid one packed with action and tension and most importantly has me wanting to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is still a good issue to demonstrate how horrifying these new enemies really are. The bad part is when too many stories are happening at the same time, but hopefully it will be changed soon. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead has only grown more exciting thanks to "The Whisperer War." This new chapter is bloody, violent and tragic in equal measure. But as much as the shift to a more dense, methodical storytelling format has helped the series, it's also created new problems, causing this issue to bounce from one group of characters to the next with little warning. Hopefully this arc can iron out those flaws over the next few issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Zeb Larson Sep 8, 2016

    I'm surprised that we've gone to a Negan-Beta fight so quickly; it's hard to imagine any fight ending before one (or both) of them is killed, and it would make for unusual pacing. But maybe Beta's death wouldn't actually mean very much. With the horde unleashed and his men wearing down Rick's army, even if the Whisperers are killed or driven away, the walkers can remain and wreak havoc in what Rick built. If that happens, any victory will be a Pyrrhic one. Read Full Review
