    The Walking Dead is a must own for the art alone but the story is excellent as well. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras Feb 12, 2015

    The Walking Dead #137 doesn't shy away from teasing readers. By the end of the issue, readers will be clamouring for more and agree that four weeks is not enough time. Kirkman has set the stage for quite a conclusion. As long as the direction stays focused as it did this month, The Walking Dead could be seeing an entirely new and ambitious future. Adlard remains a constant asset to the book, and really brings the tone home. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - RobertJCross Feb 12, 2015

    This was a really stellar issue. I wonder if Kirkman is trying to use the same techniques that Linklater used in Boyhood, I can see some similarities between it and the story developing with Carl. In this issue we get a LOT of insight into Carl's growth. There's some stuff with Maggie, and it's VERY important, but this is purely a Carl issue. Again, no zombies. No surprise there though, this comic has become more about the inner turmoil of the humans rather than their struggle to take down the zombie hordes. This issue is more of the same. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Jonathan Schultz Feb 14, 2015

    Robert Kirkman does a great job of giving these characters personal struggles to overcome and not making it all about the walkers. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead #137 is full of more than one shock and possibly the catalyst of the next major event in the series. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Feb 12, 2015

    Another great issue this month. Both Carl and Maggie's storylines are great, and I can't wait to find out how the societies are going to last, or what the Whispers are going to do next. Read Full Review

    Walking Dead is one of the better comics on the stands today. There is rarely a bad issue. This comic moves two plots forward, one of them could be a game-changer. The book moves along at a good pace despite the lack of action. The comic book dives into some risky areas at the end and might shock the reader a little bit. Overall, this was an entertaining read as always. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Matthew Tupper Feb 12, 2015

    The Walking Dead is still going strong. Readers who criticize the lack of action need to remember who they are dealing with here. As soon as things get a little too calm, all hell will break loose. The Hilltop is the weak point in Rick's alliance of communities and it looks like that's where things may start unraveling. We'll see soon enough if Jesus, Maggie, and Carl can handle the Hilltop without Rick. Let's just hope that all of this somehow doesn't lead to Negan getting loosebecause then we could be in for a bloodbath as we head towards Issue #150. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Feb 13, 2015

    All in all though, it's another enjoyable yarn. "The Walking Dead" won't return to its Eisner winning roots, more than likely, but you also aren't likely to find stronger fictional zombie drama anywhere, including its enormously rated TV show. It's well worth paying attention to all these years later. Read Full Review
