    The only reason I can imagine a reader being disappointed in this issue is if they had their heart set on a full-fledged appearance by the mysterious Hunters the ads have teased. Or maybe they're just tired of all the carnage. If it's the latter, you might as well get out while you still can. The rest of us have no choice but to eagerly await the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Michael Smith May 16, 2009

    There are a lot of books out on the market today that are full of shock and awe for no other reason than to push the limits. I have to commend Robert Kirkman because time-after-time he delivers shock for relevance and when people die you actually feel it emotionally. He has developed a world of characters that are highly relatable and seem to be genuine and real. If there is one book that I continued to be shocked that people do not read based on story and diehard fan dedication it is The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman really is an excellent writer and this title may be the best of any of his books. If you are not reading this give it a shot and pickup the first trade. I’m almost certain that you will be glad you did! Read Full Review

    "The Walking Dead" is a hard book to both read and recommend. It is uncompromising, and in some ways almost ludicrously uncompromising. (Like, I don't think there was ever a Brother Disembowling His Brother Barrier in comics that needed to be broken.) And yet, issue after issue, it remains compulsively intriguing. These collaborators have built a relentlessly grey America that, in its own way, is beautiful enough to keep coming back to. Read Full Review
