    Charlie Adlard gets the chance to explore new parts of the Hilltop, and his design work continues to impress. The buildings look beautiful and the community looks full of life which is accomplished by Adlard's unique character designs and realistic acting. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - RobertJCross Sep 12, 2014

    The art team brings the pain as usual. Everything is muted and hollow. The white space in every panel is probably symbolic, though I could just be over thinkingit. Either way, the art is harsh and desolate in its composition. This is where the story is told without words and the words are right in the panel. Black and white suits the mood though, better than anything. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 11, 2014

    The Walking Dead continues to be a worthy read, as though it's still falling closer to the realm of average, it is making improvements, feeling much fresher. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 15, 2014

    The upside of Kirkman's creator-owned status is the ability of this book to take an unexpected road and give us something that changes the status quo in meaningful ways (at least for a while.) The Walking Dead #131 is an impressive issue, with a lot of different elements percolating in the best soap opera fashion, and giving us new things to consider Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras Sep 12, 2014

    The Walking Dead #131 is a slow burn. Despite its slower pacing, Kirkman is able to take a number of characters and move them forward into a larger plot. The character development is natural and believable. With Adlard improving his iconic style, Kirkman has all the tools necessary to move into something larger in the oncoming months, but readers may lose patience if things continue to move this slowly.

    Walking Dead is one of the best comic books out there. If you are new to the book then just hang in there with these slower issues. Kirkman is trying to roll his cast out and it is taking some time to let the readers know them again. Hopefully things will pick up soon. A solid, but ordinary read. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Sep 14, 2014

    A messy issue… There is almost no momentum asstorylines seem to be randomly mushed together. There are about 4-5 really nice character moments that are getting lost in the plot mayhem. Why not let us enjoy those moments a little bit? Read Full Review
