    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Apr 17, 2014

    The last issue didn't feel like the war was very close to ending, butThe Walking Dead #125 definitely feels like the penultimate issue of the All-Out War storyline. This is a dialogue-heavy issue and that is a GOOD thing. I already mentioned that there's a holy **** ending. What more can I say? Y'all need to read this issue now, if you haven't already! I can't wait to see how the war concludes next week!! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Geo N Apr 9, 2014

    The Walking Dead #125 is one of my favorite issues of the series. Charlie Adlard is phenomenal the way he makes us really feel for Nicholas's family heartache. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Apr 11, 2014

    Now that Rick attacks Negan in front of all the Saviors, how is he going to get out of this one? Robert Kirkman promises nothing will be the same after issue 126, and I can't wait to find out what he means. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Andy Hamilton Apr 12, 2014

    While the final outcome of this arc feels rather evident by this point, there are still a few questions that remain to be answered. Most notably, the final fate and the true motivations of Dwight. Overall, this issue accomplished precisely what any penultimate chapter should aim for. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 10, 2014

    The final scene in this issue rings a little false in a way that's difficult to explain without getting spoiler-y. But the good news is that it leads right into one of the most satisfying and hard-won cliffhanger images in the book's history. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Apr 12, 2014

    Walking Dead is simply an unpredictable book. This issue is proof of that. The finale ships in two weeks and it's anyone's guess as to what happens. This is as good as it gets in comics. I'd check this issue out. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Apr 9, 2014

    The Walking Deadis obviously a strong book in the comic book market, both content and sales wise. It's a book that deserves to be read, now more than ever because the creative team is doing some pretty great and shocking things with this series and it's doubtful you'll want to miss where it goes.

    All in all, I'm glad the pace is picking up. A lot of what makes this book fun are here, zombie fights, characterization and a sort-of cliffhanger. So in all, I'd say at the very least, its a step in the right direction. Read Full Review

    For a character first writer like Kirkman, it's very odd that he struck out on such a big moment. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Apr 11, 2014

    A little disjointed and all over the place. Too many monologues and fake deaths… This event has so far shaped out to be basically entertaining if you aren't too demanding. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Apr 14, 2014

    In summary, "All Out War" has been a bit too big for its britches. It has reached too far and tried to rope in too many characters and too large a conflict and thus becomes less personal and emotionally resonant than the series usually is. Still, it's rather impressive that even when in the weeds, "The Walking Dead" remains solid reading. Read Full Review

    A f***ing TEN out of TEN! I couldn't be happier with how this war is panning out. This whole story arc has had my butt on the edge of my seat every issue and it keeps getting better. I would love to see the war go on a little longer, but it's almost over. If you haven't been following the story line, then now is not the time to start. Go pick up the trades and get caught up.

    It's a bit of a cliched observation to say that this arc has had too much talkin' and not enough all-out-warrin'. This issue proves to be no different, with an extended bubble-heavy conversation between Rick and Negan. Rick lays out his long-form grand opus on where humans are at at the moment in this changed world, and what the long-term goal is for humanity in the age of zombies. It was long-winded...and terrific! I really loved that speech. I wasn't sure if Negan really was being convinced and would agree to peaceful coexistence, or if he was faking it and was about to attack Rick. It was neither of those things. The Kirkman twist strikes again.

    Back to 'MEH-ville', as this issue only features about a page and a half of action. On the up-side, they get to fight zombies. On the down-side, there is no "war" action. Just plenty of BS babble and soap-opera. Even the 'shock' of the last page is too littlw & too late. 1 more issue before i decide if im dropping tWD after 126 issues of fan-dom. This 12 issue 'mega-arc' has been awfully stupid.
