    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 17, 2008

    Another stellar issue that introduced some much needed supporting cast members to the now culled group and they end up being some familiar faces to boot. Lots of great character moments, specifically with Carl, too. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Sep 18, 2008

    While I could potentially knock this one for heading back into some extremely familiar territory, it works so well and is handled so skillfully that I can't possibly allow myself to do that. Why you ask? Because, in my opinion, this is The Walking Dead at its best. Read Full Review

    Again, it's a tough book to review, especially without revealing too much. I can say that there is a few of those expected and obligatory zombie killing scenes that we all love, and that Rick and Carl's relationship continues to progress into some interesting areas. The true point of the issue, however, is for the series' story to take a few sharp turns, and get us eagerly anticipating what awaits our heroes at the next set of turns. And in that regard, it succeeds wonderfully. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Erik Norris Sep 18, 2008

    Everyone picking up weekly comics should be reading Walking Dead. There is no reason not to be. If you want a soap opera in written form, look no further. Crazy crap happens mostly every month that will give you something to discuss around the water cooler the next day at work just like your favorite prime time shows or soaps. So go to the store, buy all the back issues or hardcovers, get caught up, and enjoy one of the best rides in entertainment. Read Full Review
