    There's a lot to like as we watch what a well-oiled machine Rick has turned his group into. He operates like any general in a war room, delegating as necessary and placing people where their strengths will be best put to use. It's cool to see what these characters have become on this long journey, and as always it's Kirkman's strength with these characters that carries us through one ebb and into the next flow.

    Rick's experiences has made him a great leader, very considerate toward others, and honestly wanting to protect others from the horrors of the walkers. All this said, he's had to deal with some particularly horrific things and has lost many friends and loved ones. He's hardened, but instead of being an even stronger and more competent leader, he's chilled to reality. His coldness is really starting to take over. It's one thing to be numb and courageous, but it's another thing entirely to be untrusting and stubborn. Seeing how this arc has begun, it's hard to see what the future for this series only lead character to come out of it unscathed or maybe even alive. Read Full Review

    Walking Dead #93 is a solid entry for the series, but not necessarily as fast-paced or exciting as it could have been. The plot only lightly pushes forward by the end. Given how slow the book has been moving since the end of "No Way Out," it's more than time for Kirkman to kick things into gear again. Read Full Review

    After sucking wind for a few issues, TWD has a nice bit of forward momentum again and that's great. This series has a wonderful quality where Kirkman could probably just ad lib for years because we'll always want to know what happens next. Still, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they stepped on the gas a little bit. Read Full Review

    Walking Dead feels like it keeps telling the same story. There is some level of safety followed by a threat and then a bunch of characters die. However, this issue really digs deep into Rick's mindset and it shows a real turning point for the character. The book is a good start to what promises to be a great arc. Read Full Review

    When the backbone of a series is one event it can be hard to keep it going. I'm fairly certain Walking Dead has progressed beyond the original scope of the story and I applaud Kirkman for that. However, now it's time to move on, either really shake the series up or end it before it becomes boring. Either way, something needs to go down and I hope it does by issue #100. If not, the Walking Dead series may be as predictable and slow moving as the zombies that inhabit it. Read Full Review
