    I have a hard time believing things will get better for Rick and his crew. When Kirkman built up to Issue #50, he had us thinking things were going great. Then everything went to hell, and Rick ended up losing those closest to him. The push up to Issue #100 has the same feel. I don't trust things will end well, and why would they? Kirkman has consistently written a bleak tale about humanity's attempt to survive after the world has ended. And as revealed by Rick early on in the series, the humans are the Walking Dead. As much as I fear what's going to happen, I can't turn away from this series. With consistently good plots and art, The Walking Dead should be a book on everyone's pull list. Read Full Review

    That's not saying the upcoming issues won't take a shot at surprising us with a kill or two… After all, Andrea talking about always being one that survives seems like heavy foreshadowing, but it very well could be a red herring. Either way, this new point of view from Rick and the actual potential of other “good guys” out there could end up being an explosive mix this series hasn't necessarily seen in a very long time.

    Rick feels he needs to be a better leader by being more proactive and we see traces of him unraveling. By the end of the issue The Walking Dead #94 accomplishes what all great comic books should do, immediately get you pumped for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 29, 2012

    This series continues to rock month after month. Because we're in the beginning of the arc, it feels like the calm before the storm. There is some action but we're just getting a taste of what's to come. The story is being set up and at times it can be hard not to be skeptical (just as Rick is in the story). Kirkman has been telling this story for over 90 issues and it's bound to be another stellar story but after so many great stories, there's the fear of things going the wrong way. The possible outcomes of this story are both scary and exciting for readers and the characters. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Mar 2, 2012

    It's a pretty sure bet that issue #100 of The Walking Dead will be a game changer and Kirkman seems to be putting pieces in play that will test Rick Grimes beyond anything else. Will he survive? Will he maintain his sanity, or could issue 100 be our last dance with a man we've come to know and love over the last several years? This kind of smart writing and layered plot is what keeps Walking Dead so interesting. Read Full Review

    Walking Dead is an excellent read. It is each and every month. This issue passes for slightly better than average because the book is kind of slow and doesn't fully explore the tension that this journey should entail. I liked the book and definitely recommend checking it out. You will also find some decent zombie action in the book as well. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 2, 2012

    A little slow. I know there'll be a big explosion of stuff around issue #100, but I really don't want to wait 6 more issues for something to shake this book up. I need an appetizer before the meal. Nevertheless, a weaker issue for TWD is still pretty good. Read Full Review
