    Comics: The Gathering - RobertJCross Jun 11, 2015

    The art team continues to shine monotone treasures all over the page. I can never find anything wrong with what they do. The facial expressions are all masterful, the foiliage is all masterful, the buildings are all masterful, the movement is all masterful, the complete package is all masterful. And yet, even devoid of color, it adds so much to the plot. Perhaps it's my own bias but I believe this is the best black & white comic ever produced. Other companies could learn a thing or two from draining the color out of there franchises. I would imagine that a Batman or Venom comic would be amazing in black & white. Love it. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead #142 is a throwback to a simpler time. There is a single motivation that is shared by almost the entire cast and it gives the creative team a wonderful platform to tell a riveting story. Read Full Review

    Even with so much hope and progress, there's always the looming danger of everything being torn away. On that front, Kirkman briefly addresses last issue's incredible cliffhanger, but it's clear that door isn't yet closed. It's some terrific story seeding, and promises that this status quo still has a way to go. Read Full Review

    We also got a glimpse of how the Whispers skinned the walkers. We still don't quite know what their deal is, and I definitely don't know why Alpha decides to visit Rick's community. All I know is, this cannot be good news and what's going to happen next is going to be shocking. Hopefully Rick can find Carl soon. Read Full Review

    So overall a really good issue, with some of the stories starting to overlap and bring everything together; after a few hectic issues that have been all over the place and lacking any real direction. Read Full Review

    "The Walking Dead" is the best comic book I read month after month. This issue is about as average as it gets. With some clunky dialogue, low points in the plot threads and limited drama or action you don't have a whole lot of entertainment in this individual issue. Hopefully, things will pick back up next issue. This is a very average comic book. Read Full Review

    Because of the results regarding the All Out War event, we now are left with too many interesting characters and not enough time to do anything ultimately that interesting story-wise with most of them, which leads to way too many slow-moving chapters such as this. Kirkman should have killed a few more in order to get us back to that headspace where we can care about these people. At this point Im starting to not care for any of them except Negan and hes the psychopath in lockup. Its because hes the only one who has a clear goal freedom. Everyone else is so comfortable that Ive grown tired of giving a shit what happens to them, whereas the maniac who is in a cage in Ricks basement has something to work towards. Either free Negan, or let those dickhead whisperers cull the herd a little more. Thank you please. Read Full Review
