    It's some of Kirkman's finest writing and Adlard's best "acting" on the series to date. Read Full Review

    "The Walking Dead" provides an issue where Rick and Michonne reveal their darkest feelings to each other. This probably isn't the best issue to ship the same week as the premier of the TV show because it isn't new reader friendly. However, for the long time reader you will find some important moments that probably have needed to happen for years. The comic moves the plot forward a little with the tension between Rick and the town people that want action against Lydia's mom and her people. The artwork delivers extremely well for an issue that's absent action. Overall, this is worth a read but the new readers might not find the emotional punch that the issue packs that the seasoned reader will find. I recommend this comic book. Read Full Review

    This issue really wouldn't work with the the series long history. The conversation is powerful enough to reveal something about the characters, but without the long history it is nothing. Overall, this is an okay issue. It doesn't really push the story forward, but only a bit of character development. Read Full Review

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bored as of late, but that's because the series is still trying to recover from the traumatic deaths from a while back. By the end of 147 I think we're back into the good shit however and I'm hoping Eugene will get some of his vengeance " that dude doesn't get a break and he deserves it. Plus I hate that dumbass Lydia. There I said it. Read Full Review

    So this book was like reading a Brian Michael Bendis comic that contained a forward written by Woody Allen, so I wasn't overly enthralled this month. The good point is the art by Charlie Adlard was near perfect. I hope he never leaves this book. His style is absolutely perfect for it. The black and white format is also one of my favorite parts of the book as it allows the reader to pay attention more to it's contents. On the plus side, this does make me appreciate any episode of Fear the Walking Dead TV show more. Hopefully next month we will back to our regularly scheduled masochism, but we have Halloween and nightmares for that. See you on the hill next month deadheads" Read Full Review

    For fans of the show looking for a place to jump on and longtime readers of the series, The Walking Dead #147 is an issue that is probably best read as part of a broader collection. It moves characters and plot points in potentially interesting directions, but makes for a dull read on its own. Kirkman's strengths do not lie in dialogue and Adlard can only do so much with almost twenty pages of the stuff. It is an issue that rests between better things, which might to make its notable weaknesses a little easier to forget. Read Full Review
