    Pop Culture Uncovered - Pauly D Jun 2, 2016

    The Walking Deadcontinues to be excellently written and drawn with plot lines that are action packed, thought provoking, and terrifying. Kirkman is a master of character development, even when we think we know the players by heart. Rick's personality ebbs and flows throughout the years between being the standard barer of the moral high ground and being downright cold and ruthless. Negan is a straight-up Jedi when it comes to using his oratory gifts to feel out weaknesses in others and then manipulating those soft spots to his advantage. He is the ultimate survivor. Adlard never lets up with the artwork, delivering spectacular panels every issue. Every form of media suffers from fatigue when it is a long running medium but there appear to be no chinks in the armor ofThe Walking Dead. Read Full Review

    At first glance, all the plots intertwined in this issue of THE WALKING DEAD seem like Kirkman has bitten off more than he can chew. Quite the opposite. These plotlines all make the issue more exciting while setting up for the future of the series. I'm excited to see all of these plots play out in future issues. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson Jun 7, 2016

    The idea that Negan would side with the Whisperers just to get back at Rick has never sat well with me. I just can't imagine that Negan would abandon all his desire for power just to burn everything down; it would send him down the path the Governor trod, and we've already seen that narrative arc. Instead, the idea that all of this is as series of mistakes leading to calamity seems more like The Walking Dead than just a simple war. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Jun 2, 2016

    This book shows that Kirkman and team still have it, and this comic is impactful as ever at making readers scared about what is coming and excited for it at the same time. The Walking Dead #155 continues the thrills and excitement this comic is known for. With the upcoming events that are sure to bring some loss of life it is wise to start getting caught up now before any spoilers come out. The story and art that are consistently featured issue after issue in The Walking Dead makes this a great read month after month. With the upcoming The Whisperer War arc to look forward to, there is a lot to look forward to from this creative team. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Jun 4, 2016

    The Walking Dead # 155 is pretty much a transition chapter. It further sets up the conflicts between our survivors and the Whispers, and has us excited for the upcoming war between the two groups. At the same time, it also raises the question who the real villain is in this new world. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 1, 2016

    This isn't the strongest recent chapter of The Walking Dead by any means, but there's a lot to savor in issue #155 as Negan forges an alliance with Alpha and Rick's fall from grace continues. This chapter makes it abundantly clear that a massive war is drawing close, and when that happens the series will surely become even more exciting than it already has been these past few months.

    The Walking Dead #155 moves the story forward in an intriguing manner, as despite not captivating at the same level as recent issues, it builds towards the upcoming conflict. It also gives us some fun character development for Negan, with the growing relationship between him and Apha being interesting to say the least. Read Full Review

    GWW - Sarah Payne-mills Jun 6, 2016

    This was a solid issue that mostly moves the story forward toward the Whisperer War in issue 157. The dynamic between Alpha and Negan is interesting"and a tad disappointing"but I do want to see more. Negan's commentary shines again, and it's good to see more of Dwight. We didn't see Eugene in this issue, but it'll be interesting to see the part his mystery girl, Stephanie, plays in the war, if anything. Read Full Review
