This war has begun to take a toll on us all.

    Geeked Out Nation - Andy Hamilton Mar 31, 2014

    Overall, this issue makes it rather evident that the end is indeed nigh for this conflict. Negan has all of the characteristics of a Bond villain on the verge of defeat or a Game of Thrones villain on the verge of victory; he is getting increasingly cocky and bold and his enemies continue to weaken and yet remain a constant thorn in his side. Either way, it feels like the calm before the storm and major change will quite certainly be on its way within the issues that follow. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Apr 17, 2014

    The Walking Dead #124is the antepenultimate issue of the All-Out War storyline and it didn't quite feel like it. I felt that the first half of the issue was really strong, but then things seemed to stall out a bit. Still, it was a good issue. It probably won't seem like as much of a stall when viewed as just one part of the overall storyline. Maybe part of the reasoning for thisis to make the actual outcome ofthe war to be completely unknown until Part 12 of 12. If so, their reasoning is sound. I have no idea what is coming next! Besides the slight stall in the war, I thought this was a really good issue with some intense action scenes. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Geo N Mar 27, 2014

    I don't remember the last time a comic had me so concerned about the outcome. Robert Kirkman has really done a masterful job with The Walking Dead and the All Out War arc. He has been teasing that issue #126 is going to be completely unexpected and awesome and it's something we would never guess. I have no idea what it could be. I'm almost certain that the arrow that struck Rick was not tainted and if that's the case then he will heal from it. The only other theory I can come up with is that he will get a fever and turning into a walker will be all but certain until someone, maybe Eugene, comes up with a cure. I could spend all day coming up with strange and odd theories to what I think will be the outcome but that will get us nowhere. What is certain, however, is that Kirkman will deliver an outstanding story once again and Adlard will wow us with art that is out of this world. I suppose only time will tell, one more month to be exact. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Mar 26, 2014

    THE WALKING DEAD looks to be heading to a rather exciting–and potentially divisive–ending for “All Out War,” but issue #124 keeps the great story moving expertly. This has been an exciting arc, and as we get close to the end, I really can't wait to see how it all shakes out. Just please don't kill Rick…yet. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Mar 27, 2014

    Overall, the issue takes a to a new direction and threat for our survivors. There're only two issues left before the war is over, and it's still everyone's guess who's going to walk out of it alive. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Mar 26, 2014

    This series isn't popular because of zombies, it's popular because of its characters. This is something that Kirkman never forgets, and All Out War really seems to have found its characterizing focus on Eugene. He's had one of the more engrossing storylines in this arc, and this issue is only further proof of that. Other characters, such as Rick and company, aren't as developed in this issue, but that's forgivable given that their situation certainly begins to evolve thanks to Negan's devious and disgusting plot.

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Mar 29, 2014

    The Walking Dead is in the middle of a strange arc for this book. It's a long arc, but one that is moving at a lightning pace. The comic book feels like an incomplete read in some ways, perhaps because the scenes seem to end without warning. The book's arc is also diminished because of Negan. The character simply overpowers anything else in the comic book and this is going to make for a painful reading experience if he does die at the end of this. As always, The Walking Dead sits atop the read list for the week. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Rainbow Red Panda Apr 3, 2014

    This issue was definitely a progression issue. It had a good bit of action, but it's the knowledge that was learned by the members of the Hilltop that is the key component. Negan is still oblivious to what is actually going on around him, and while he has manpower, I think his plan will unravel in upcoming issues. I can't wait to get to the end of this arc to see what happens. I know some beloved characters will probably be leaving us soon and while that makes me sad, it's all for the greater story.

    Solid storytelling, interesting story possibilities, despite the art having trouble keeping up with the schedule… Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Mar 26, 2014

    Even though the overall story has seemed to drag out at times this issue gets the sense of urgency back on course. This issue also feels like Kirkman saying goodbye to the old and moving forward with the new. I don't know any of this to be true but Kirkman seems to be ready to move beyond Rick, Michonne, Andrea and Carl, as well as killing off the one seemingly unstoppable villain. We'll see, but this is a great beginning to the end of this arc. I wouldn't get my hopes up for some happy ending as Kirkman doesn't seem wired that way and I would be shocked if any of the major players are around much longer tow issues form now.

    I hate to come across as blase. It wasn't a bad issue, I just had some issues. I would not call this a filler issue, because I think it was better than that. But there have been other, much stronger issues. So this one comes in right above average. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Mar 30, 2014

    So is is time for The Walking Dead the comic book to begin to wind down and get ready to roll off into the zombie splattered sunset? Probably. It's still a major cash cow for Image Comics though, so I don't think the series will wind down anytime soon, with or without Rick Grimes. Read Full Review

    Crap, crap, crap....are my usual feelings everytime I pick up this book. This week is no different, it's a tense issue like most of the months. If you have been following, then you know stuff is about to go down. The All Out War is almost done (issue 10 of 12) but the story is far from over. I'm glad this switched to bi monthly, I don't think I could wait a whole month on this one.

    . . . $3, 22pgs (5 splash), C- cover. ALL ADs @ back! . . . Im glad to finally be able to give tWD a good review, since this issue gets back to the action and feels more like the "war" we have been sold. Art, design, greytones, etc are all on point and i didnt notice any errors there. The writing is pretty good, and wastes little time on BS. This is a fine example of what this maxi-arc should have been.

    I like how the tide turned a couple times during this issue. The generals are pretty well matched strategically. I's still wondering if we're actually supposed to believe that Rick is infected. It seems pretty obvious that he's not. But I guess he doesn't know that, so maybe that's the point of it. It's ramping up nicely here to the ending.
