    That gripe aside, The Walking Dead is currently firing on all cylinders, and Kirkman and Adlard are definitely providing one of the most exciting arcs in the series' history. I can't wait for next month. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 12, 2008

    My only worry about this book is that Kirkman might be planning a full reboot at #50. I'm almost sure we're down to single digit survivors for the prison and it could drop even lower by the end of this arc. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 12, 2008

    While this issue didn't stun me, it did what it usually does: entertain. We've finally got the battle we've been waiting for and while this is only the first half, there's already plenty of ramifications in store for the survivors. It all happens so fast, too, that we're barely given time to mourn the loss of those who die. But in true fashion, Kirkman reminds us that this is a war, and there'll be time to mourn the dead later. Right now, it's a desperate fight for survival (for both sides) and we've gotta wait another month to see who lives. Argh! Read Full Review

    The absolutely crushing, game-changing moment in this whole Governor arc came to its malevolent fulfillment when the Governor psychotically drove that tank through the fences. In that grim instance, the value of the prison as a safe haven from the horrors of the outside world was brutally stripped away. Without those fences, neither Rick’s group or the Governor’s can derive anything of significance from it. Few illustrations in fiction are more demonstrative of the utter senselessness of war. The more a prolonged engagement stretches on, the less rewards the winning side has to claim afterwards. In only a short time, both sides are playing a losing game. Lives are lost on both sides in the most meaningless of ways (poor Axel), and all o more
