    The Walking Dead is often at its best in unpredictable periods like this, where it's not clear if the addition of new characters means progress or war for our heroes. This issue stumbles a bit in its depiction of the Commonwealth characters, but that core appeal still remains. And between the stark visual overhaul thanks to this new setting and the major drama in Michonne's life, there's ample reason to be invested in the series right now. Read Full Review

    Robert Kirkman pulls on all the heart strings as Michonne and her daughter, Elodie, are reunited. He also builds suspense as aspects of The Commonwealth are hinted at. All of this is assisted by Charlie Adlard and Stefano Gaudiano's artwork. This issue is a must! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 7, 2018

    This issue, while simple, is all about that emotional journey and build up to the cathartic end. It's an emotional roller coaster that pays off in a build up throughout the issue. Kirkman is a master of this type of storytelling and here's a prime example of setting the mood, building tension, and letting it build to release. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Sardo Feb 7, 2018

    Kirkman knows how to pace a comic book series, and 176 is a perfect second issue of a six-part arc. He answers the primary question from part one and adds additional questions to pore over moving forward. Part three should introduce the conflict, and then we are off and running with the two-part finale. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Brandon Davis Feb 7, 2018

    The book finally decides not to hold back on delivering a specific moment fans are hungry for, and in true Kirkman fashion, gives just enough on the final pages to force a return for issue #177. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Feb 8, 2018

    Overall, this is a great issue that further expands the world of The Walking Dead. With a giant community like the Commonwealth, it's not hard to imagine where the story can take us next. The new characters are interesting, and with Michonne's family reunion, the story sure is one to be invested with. Read Full Review
