    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 5, 2019

    Honestly, that should be the lasting legacy for The Walking Dead - consistency. Consistent shocks, consistent stakes, and consistent surprises. It was only fitting that their last one be the finale. And wouldn’t you know it, even that is a rock-solid experience, paying loving tribute to the universe it created and its characters. They say part of the journey is the end, and Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Cliff Rathburn made both worthwhile. Putting a heartfelt capstone on an incomparable achievement in creator-owned comic books, The Walking Dead has more than earned its time to rest in peace. Read Full Review

    If you haven't read a single panel of TWD I suggest pl1opping down the money for the omnibi and digging in brothers and sisters. The Walking Dead haas earned its spot in the pop culture zeitgeist for all eternity. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 3, 2019

    Fans of The Walking Dead might be both sad and happy with how things have wrapped. We're not totally without future stories. From television shows to books, there's much more life into this world yet to come and experience. And we can go into that with the knowledge that there's hope for a future that's a little better. A series whose message is that through trials and tribulations we can all make a better future. For a world built off of a bleak premise, its gift is one of a brighter future we can all make together. Read Full Review

    This is an easy book to recommend and not just for Walking Dead fans. It's a book that deserves a place in just about every collection. An end to an era that won't soon be forgotten. Read Full Review

    They could have easily milked it for another five or even ten years. But they opted not to ruin their legacy and go out with a bang. Kudos. Read Full Review

    The Walking Dead #193 wraps up the story neatly, but fails to recognize the early ambitions that made this series great. Read Full Review

    Is any of this curtain call good? To paraphrase another negatively-received finale in 2019, ask us again in ten years. Or rather, don't. Read Full Review

    Fair ending for this great comic series. I love how Robert managed this themes post apocalipsis, and the rebuild of society.

    GTMedia Reviews Jul 4, 2019

    I just reviewed The Walking Dead #190 last week and upon reading that issue I never got the impression that the series was about to end. I'm fairly behind on my reviews as you may have probably noticed if you check out my timeline. I saw that something big happened in #192 but I managed to avoid spoilers. You would think that the events would have been bigger than they are. 

    I haven't seen anyone covering this issue which is surprising. 

    I was on twitter and totally got blindsided by the announcement that the series was ending. It was actually surreal and kind of shocking that a series would end so close to a perceived milestone, IE #200. 
    There's no way to offer an actual review without spoiling the ma more

    Despite losing interest in this series and really not being too invested lately, this ending actually really resonated with me. I thought it was really well done.

    I have to say that I did see this coming. The title didn't seem to have anywhere else to go without repeating itself. This was a decent ending to a great series.
