    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 2, 2008

    It's a true character piece and one of the best looks at how people, especially children, are dealing with this world gone mad in this series and a nice change of pace from the action oriented No One is Safe arc. Read Full Review

    The issue itself will either move The Walking Dead slowly down an entirely different path than we've seen before, or it will mark a powerful and moving moment in one character's journey. Either way, it's an absolutely engrossing read that's emotionally resonant in more ways than one. Kudos to Kirkman and Adlard for another wonderful issue. Read Full Review

    MF: If Robert Kirkman decides that you're dead, you are dead as a doornail. [laughs] Good thing he don't write the book of our real lives. Read Full Review

    I actually applaud Kirkman for telling the story that he wants to tell and not giving into the temptation to shake things up just because this is a milestone. The Walking Dead #50 is all about the emotional toll the recent events have had on Carl and it works extremely well in that regard. Congrats Mr. Kirkman, it has been a great ride so far.

    "The Walking Dead" is at a great crossroads now. There's a new cast to be lined up as well as a new location. And we can't even be sure that the star of the book for the last 50 issues will be around for any of it. At a time of great unease, Kirkman does a great job in creating a smaller and very personal story that gives a reader plenty of reasons to keep turning the page and waiting for the next issue.

    Issue #50 was great. Even if you don't like The Walking Dead (comics or show) this should impress you. The art and writing is awesome.

    In this emotionally poignant issue, it is clear that there was yet another casualty in the prison assault. Carl Grimes’ childhood died as well. Children in the zombie apocalypse must either grow up and adapt at a rapid (and decidedly cruel) rate, or they simply will not last very long. Thankfully, Carl seems to have adapted exponentially since the zombie outbreak began. While he is quite handy with his pistol, Carl has learned even more nuanced survival skills from observing his father and former community as they dealt with roamers. Not only is he relatively calm around them, but he is able to invoke a little bit of strategy in dealing with them. Sure, that strategy fell apart with the addition of an unexpected roamer (don’t you just h more
