    Charlie Adlard work does struggle at times to make his cast look different enough that there is never any confusion about cast members. If one does make the effort and has strong memory skills then this isn't an insurmountable problem. The art impressively delivers the more unsettling moments, as I loved the jump shock moment where the heads spring to life, and the reveal shot of what the men find inside the gym was nicely presented by the art. Also while the reveal moment was rather disappointing, I can't deny that the art wonderfully conveys that the murderer is one evil creature. His look of anticipation in the final pages is really quite effective. The cover image is also very impressive, as while the zombies don't really play much of a role inside this issue, one can't deny how effectively this cover manages to sell the nightmarish quality that these creatures present.

    The The survivors are finally accepting their dark new world wont change anytime soon. The cliffhanger and next issue teaser promise a higher body count next issue. This is a good thing for readers, because it keeps us coming back for more. Read Full Review

    This issue provides a lot of insight. There are a lot of good quotes that really hit hard in this issue. The one problem I have is that there might be a little two much going on at once and the crew are trying to deal with 2 or 3 big issues all at once. The next issue should be a good one.

    Rick comes back from his cathartic Shane trip only to be greeted with an extraordinarily depressing string of bad news. Susie and Rachel have been beheaded, and oh yeah, we kind of lost Tyreese too. If it weren’t so tragic, it would almost be kind of be funny. Rick leaves this group for like a little over a day, and three people die. Things simply fall apart when Rick is not there to oversee everything. This is both a compliment to Rick as a leader and an acknowledgment of the momentous burden that leadership must be to him at times. However, a group that is often so paralyzed without its leader clearly has a lot of potentially fatal kinks that need to be ironed out.
