    By now we know issue #100 is going to be impressive. I'm already bracing myself for tears and disbelief. And we already know Negan's group is planning an attack. It'll be fascinating to see how Andrea acts as the sole protector of the community. You know next issue will be good. I give this issue a 9/10. Read Full Review

    I can tell you one thing for sure… If we aren't listed in the front cover of Walking Dead #100, none of us will know until the day the issue comes out. That makes this book truly exciting on a level that goes beyond the excitement nearly every other comic series can generate. Read Full Review

    This issue was mostly reminding us of a bunch of characters who will probably die in issue #100. It's all prologue. Read Full Review

    Hopefully Kirkman wont kill off Andrea, as shes probably the best character in the series, in a tie with Carl and Glenn. Personally, I dont care if everybody else dies, as itll make the series all the more interesting. Hell, they can kill off Rick at this point, placing Andrea, Glenn, and Carl as the series primary protagonists. Its possible putting an emotionally disturbed adolescent into the drivers seat would make the series extremely interesting. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 20, 2012

    Unfortunately, the art quality is fairly sporadic this month. It's always impressive when a series can ship at faster-than-monthly speed without changing up the art crew, but in this case the rushed schedule really seems to take its toll on Charlie Adlard. Some panels and scenes look fine, while others are too loose or murky in their detail. Hopefully Adlard has been saving his energies for issue #100, because the book deserves to look its best at such a major point in its history. Read Full Review

    Comicville - Chris Blackwell Jun 20, 2012

    We are all very anxious to see what Walking Dead #100 will bring next month. This wasn't exactly the issue I was looking for to tie me over until then, but it does still serve a purpose. You don't really need to read this issue to enjoy next month's, but if you haven't read a Walking Dead issue in a while, this will fill in as a good catchup issue to tell you where everyone is at in their lives and who everyone is with.

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Jun 22, 2012

    Walking Dead #99 isn't the most exciting issue, and I would have liked to have seen Kirkman do something a little more interesting than a page by page look at who may or may not die come issue #100. That being said, the issue does what it set out to do. I have a full scope of all the people that are on the line and my anticipation for what comes next is palpable. If Walking Dead #100 is Christmas morning filled with toys, then issue #99 is Christmas Eve when you get socks and pants from Grandma. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Jun 23, 2012

    This issue is a good read and it builds some of the tension, but the tension and build up has been done outside of the comic with all of the hype already. I wish this issue would have launched into the action to make issue 100 attempt to top it. Instead, Kirkman punts here and gives a filler issue. It's an entertaining read that could have been more.

    Comic Book Resources - Augie De Blieck Jr. Jun 20, 2012

    "The Walking Dead" #99 can be judged as either a part of the whole or as a single thing. The art carries it nicely either way, but your ultimate enjoyment will depend on which angle you take. I have to choose the latter, and grade the book as highly as I do based on the art and the smaller moments/revelations that we do get. Read Full Review
