    If anything, Kirkman overplays his hand towards the end. As much as he struck the right chord with Douglas and the other new characters, Kirkman goes too far in hinting at their darker natures. I just hope he has a few more surprises in store when it comes to the new cast. But looking back at these past 70 issues, it's rare to find a point where The Walking Dead played to reader expectations. This should be an interesting ride for our poor heroes. Read Full Review

    This issue is more of the good stuff from Kirkman and Adlard. A new storyline is opening up and so far we’ve got the promise of intrigue, tension, trust issues and most likely, a whole bunch of zombies and slaughter. Oh who are we kidding? There’s gonna be a LOT of zombies and slaughter. Wouldn’t be The Walking Dead without it. Read Full Review

    This is only a comic that gets better with age and this story arc is a great jumping on point for anyone not yet acquainted with The Walking Dead. But make sure to catch up with the series in trade paperback at some point. For those who have followed the trials and tribulations from the beginning there is an added sentimental enjoyment to seeing these tortured souls get a chance at happiness. I say, buy it.

    This comic book introduces the next big character, Douglas, and begins to reveal the nature of the town and its residents. It might sound boring but there is a great exchange between Douglas and Rick and then between Douglas and Andrea that keeps the issue on a high level. Add in that there is a preview of a series called Turf and you have a very good read. I definitely recommend this comic book. Read Full Review
