    We have one more issue of the arc remaining. Don't expect there to be much more excitement in the next issue, but look for this arc to set up the next and lead it toward some pretty intense moments between Rick and Negan. Read Full Review

    This is always the hardest review of the month as it is difficult to not give spoilers. If you are not up to date with TWD then there is no point in reading my review of the title on any given month; so in a way I do not feel too bad. However, if you are not reading it then it must sound like nothing is happening in these issue, but you would be really wrong. We love these characters and it is great to see any sort of development of them or to the story. We are all in it for the long run. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Feb 14, 2013

    Not the most exciting issue, but Kirkman starts a number of small fires burning. Now let's see how he nurtures them into blazing bonfires over time. Lots of subtlety going on here! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 14, 2013

    Anti-climactic? Maybe, but The Walking Dead #107 is still an enjoyable read and effective bridge between the initial conflict with Negan and new story complications that are brewing on the horizon. Read Full Review

    Rick's plan gets closer to fruition, but the surprise ending will either expedite things or place another bump in the road for the Hilltop. This is a slow moving issue, but one that thoroughly entertains. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Josh Pierce Feb 8, 2013

    Still there is a problem that I have with almost every single issue of The Walking Dead, #107 clicks in a reading time of somewhere between 5-10 minutes. It flows amazing, but the style of the art that Charlie provides is flowing, and not something I have to stare at, and the dialogue just moves it along at a rapid pace, and soon the issue is over. I think that's been a complaint of many people about this series, but it doesn't mean the story isn't good it just means that it's a quick read so be ready for it. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Sean Gonzalez Feb 19, 2013

    To say that this comic has literally made me gasp while reading could only illustrate a fraction of its qualities and with this issue being a lead up to the end of the arc, it's dynamic qualities are a testament to Kirkman's ability to build towards a conclusion without having to take a break from the intensity.

    Looking at The Walking Dead through the lens of history " if Rick takes down Negan, will he be destroying something? How many whole empires could rise and fall over the course of the new human history that The Walking Dead depicts? Perhaps humanity will rebuild and destroy itself over and over again, with these first hundred issues or so being only a drop in the bucket compared to what the series has in store for us.

    The Weekly Crisis - Chris Partin Feb 12, 2013

    Over the years this series has had its highs and lows, and I feel we're at one of those climbs up to something big and as much as I'd like to walk away and wait for the hardcover collected edition, issues like this remind me that there's always something brewing in Kirkman's head and you never know when it will come spilling out onto the page.

    Read Comic Books - Doug Garbark Feb 14, 2013

    The issue leaves off with Rick and Jesus devising a plan to dethrone Negan. With their new found information on The Saviors Sanctuary and their number of willing soldiers potentially far lower than Rick and Jesus had assumed, it appears that it could be time to assemble an army which seems to hinder on the support of a debuting character. The cover of The Walking Dead #108 has me ripe with anticipation! Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Feb 15, 2013

    Walking Dead is going into strange territory. It certainly appears that Rick and Negan will coexist for the long term with building tensions on both sides. It's not a bad thing but it certainly isn't nearly as neat and tidy as the twenty four issues that dealt with the Governor. Walking Dead continues to be one of the best books out there and this is definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Feb 13, 2013

    Since jumping on board of The Walking Dead with issue #7 (that seems so long ago), artist Charlie Adlard doesn't lose a step with this issue. His work is polished, and the characters' expressions are what truly drive the story forward in this book. Issue #107 lacks action, but that's not to say that it doesn't lack depth. After topping the 2012 sales charts, The Walking Dead continues to sit on the throne of comic titles. Read Full Review

    This was a set-up issue.  Plain and simple.  We moved Carl back to Rick, there were a few other things that came up, and it ended with Rick beginning to come up with a plan of attack against the Saviors.  Boom, simple.  As always, this was a good issue, but there really wasn't much to it.

    Geek Smash - Matthew A. Ramirez Feb 15, 2013

    I truly did enjoy this issue, but it was over much too quickly. The actionwasn'tbalanced out throughout the issue so it started off well but ended kind of sloppy. “The Walking Dead” has always been great at surprise or suspenseful endings, but this one justdidn'tmake sense. Whos Ezequiel? Why is he coming up now and not before? And more importantly, what made the entire writing team think this would be a good enough ending for us? Read Full Review

    Overall, it was a solid issue which added some elements to the story, but it was a bit slow and there wasn't much resolution. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 16, 2013

    The art is always a treat with TWD, though, and a quiet conversation in the issue that discusses how making concessions with Negan and living without conflict, even under his thumb, is more like civilization than they've had in years. It's a fair point, and one that makes me hope that something other than another brutal murder is in the offing for this conflict. The Walking Dead #107 hits a couple of really sour notes, but still keeps the beat, earning a still-pretty-good 3 out of 5 stars overall. I'm a little tired of the blah-blah-blah and a LOT tired of Negan, but some attention to the supporting cast softened the blow of the bad bits" Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Robert Bernstein Feb 17, 2013

    I'm not going to rate this issue highly just because it is my favorite comic book series. Walking Dead has gotten away from what made it great in the first place--zombies! Where are the damn zombies? The closest thing to a zombie in this issue is Rick biting Negan, and that just won't cut it. While I do understand that not every issue can be action packed and littered with zombies, I think Kirkman is going a little too far with the character development. Overall, Walking Dead #107 is an unwelcome break from the action that is middling, at best. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kenneth Bowden Feb 14, 2013

    So while this issue might not have been very action packed nor has the many twists and turns we're used to in this series, but lulls have happened before right before shit got real. So if you take away anything from this issue know that very, very soon it is going down. Negan has kept Rick and many others in a tight stranglehold for long enough and he's about due for a reckoning. Next issue will introduce us to a new mystery ally and bring us one step closer to seeing the final clash between Rick, Negan and the Saviors. So keep reading cuz if you've kept up until now you'd be loony to skip out before the showdown pops off. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Feb 13, 2013

    I know I always end my reviews with “And I still hate the art,” but my recent look back at when Walking Dead was a great read made me re-think that idea. Original artist Tony Moore was awesome. His work stood out, you could tell one character from another, and the art popped. Current artist Charlie Adlard just doesn’t have the same abilities, and it’s really hurt the series.

    Sure thing, last month's cliffhanger was a huge scam to grab readers, but the way it turned out was just as effective. As I said, Negan is my favorite character in the whole series to date, and each issue he appears on is good to me apparently. He's such a shaded character, with all his contradictions and whims, that remind me always more of the Joker, in, like, a lighter way, I guess. The tactic decision he takes is great in its plainness and deepens the cold conflict in ways I didn't think would happen in this comic. Will be fun to know this Ezekiel guy, whose existence had been hidden by Jesus for some goddamn reason. I like the Biblical references, though.
