    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Feb 4, 2017

    Kirkman and Adlard could give a master class in comic writing and art and story cooperation. The consistency and emotive delivery of the story every month is unmatched in our current comic era. Getting this book should be a no-brainer, a must for all comic fans. This book also serves as a good introductory point for new readers, you get hooked the second you see the second double splash page of the book. Spend the quarter, but this book, read good comics, and you will not regret it. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Alex Bisignaro Feb 3, 2017

    For Image's 25th anniversary, THE WALKING DEAD #163 has the looming dread that fans have grown to love about this series. The artwork from Adlard is as compelling as ever, and Kirkman's plot appears to be capable of going in any direction. Read Full Review

    GWW - Sarah Payne-mills Feb 4, 2017

    For a twenty-five cent issue, Kirkman does not disappoint, not that we expected him to. This is a great start to the post-war arc. The chance for all of the characters to survive seems slim to none. I hope Kirkman continues on with the pacing and intensity he's set up thus far as the characters fight for survival in the issues to come. We get another issue this month, and I can't wait!

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 1, 2017

    "The Whisperer War" didn't reach the memorable conclusion it deserved, but at least the series is on the upswing again in issue #163. This issue kicks off an accessible new conflict that crams about as much drama and zombie carnage into every page as humanly possible. And with the price of entry being so low, there's really no reason not to give this comic a try. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Feb 2, 2017

    Where's the comic series going now? The series comes a long way with survivors on the road trying to find a safe haven, and after the status quo changing “All Out War,” the series is all about how to build a society in a world like this. However, as the community is destroyed the survivors are forced to be back on the road again. This feels awfully familiar. Then again, both The Kingdom and Hilltop are still around, and the Saviors are coming in as the big boss, maybe the series is still heading towards a fresh direction. We will have to wait and find out. Read Full Review
