    Comics: The Gathering - RobertJCross Apr 9, 2015

    Black and white never looked so good as it does in this comic. I always assume it would be a lot easier since you don't need to figure out colors for everything, but this art team has to trick the reader into inserting their own colors. They do a great job of it as always and the facial expressions are still some of the best I've seen in any comic the past 10 years. Always impressed. Read Full Review

    Robert Kirkman has been slowly rebuilding the world of the Walking Dead. The fast pace of this series has slowed significantly, but this issue changes all of that. There are several elements that all take intriguing steps forward including a cliffhanger that will leave fans wanting more. Charlie Adlard produces some great layouts and realistic facial expressions, but some of his other shots come off with a little less control. Read Full Review

    The ending… oh man. I don't know what to think about it, but Kirkman usually likes to have cliffhangers that turn out to be nothing, so it's possibility that Negan will simply close the door and pretend nothing ever happened. Or he could sneak out, steal a gun and start killing anyone in his path. Yeah, I guess we will have to wait to find out. Read Full Review

    Overall a solid and enjoyable issue, the series is starting to pick up the pace. I just wonder though how much longer they can stretch things out that maybe should have been resolved a couple of issues ago. However when issues are coming out every two weeks as they have lately; they can afford to go as slow as they like. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead's strength is when the focus is on Maggie and her community. Kirkman has done a solid job of creating a couple of plots that are working against Maggie and putting her in a couple of potential no-win scenarios. This comic also provides glimpses into each of the plots, but not in a clunky way. This is a very good read with a nice bang at the end to keep you wanting more. I recommend checking this out.

    As The Walking Dead goes on, it continues to impress. This wasnt the best issue in the series, but it was still engaging in large part to the writing and art. Robert Kirkman is a man who knows how to write good and likable characters. Charlie Adlards work is always amazing and one of the reasons this book is so great. The Walking Dead remains a must read every week. Read Full Review
