    This issue is wonderful, and hits all the right notes of paranoia, even while making it clear that there doesn't seem to be anything to fear. Read Full Review

    The wait for issue #71 was a bit longer than I would have liked, but that in itself only heightens the tension even more. I fully expect the carnage to explode once more within the next few months. Part of me isn't sure I want to read the next issue, but I know full well I can't resist a book this consistently excellent. Just go easy on them this time, okay Kirkman? Read Full Review

    For 71 issues, we’ve seen Rick & company play the role of the good guys and the victims and now it seems like they aren’t going to be so passive. Granted, Rick didn’t exactly say that he’s planning any sort of attack on the townspeople, but that look in his eye was downright terrifying and he has never been so aggressive before. The fact that he was so calm and collected while telling Andrea how simple it would be to take the town for their own… that’s crazy right there. Rick’s lost it and that only means that we’re in for an even wilder ride than the one we’ve already been on. Can’t wait until next month! Read Full Review

    Walking Dead is building towards another massive confrontation. This issue builds some groundwork for that confrontation. Will it be an outside invasion? A zombie outbreak? A war from within? We don't know yet but this issue is showing how it will be a fun ride. Read Full Review
