Tensions are running high in Alexandria as the residents are trying to rebuild after the horde of walkers destroyed it. Will Rick be able to pick up the pieces of a shattered community, only time will tell.The story starts off with Carl still mourning the loss of Andrea and we get reminded of

The story starts off with Carl still mourning the loss of Andrea and we get reminded of an incident that happened a long time ago. For those who have been following the comic, you will no doubt remember the story he is telling. While fans of the TV show will remember the polarizing episode with Carol.

In the meantime, Maggie has some questions for Rick concerning Negan. While Dwight, seems to be holding in some anger towards Rick and his decision makings. I’ve mentioned on my podcast, that it looks like Dwight will be turning on Rick soon and this issue has only given that suspicion more fuel.Rick approaches Eugene about the radio and who has been speaking to for quite a while. Rick decides that he wants to speak with them about a possible deal where they can work together. Which leads to Rick trying to find a small group who will head over to their location and begin the process of trading. Which leads to a very intense confrontation between Rick and Dwight and I must say it was very nice to see a rage filled Rick again for some reason.

Kirkman and his team delivered on all cylinders in this issue. If you are a fan of this comic because of Adlard’s amazing action sequences then you will be disappointed. But, these issues are important to regroup and focus on the characters.

At an early age I knew I loved two things more than anything else Comic Books and Video Games and no matter how hard my parents tried they couldn't keep me away from the capes and pixels. Now that I have a wife and child of my own I can't wait to share these vast worlds and experiences with them and hopefully you! With GWW I created and become editor of the comics section, which has now become the websites most popular area and features daily post with unique Comic editorials, reviews and previews. Along with Will Elizondo we started the GWW Capes Crew podcast. A weekly show dedicated to to all things Comics, Superheros and Sequential Art. After a year of creating content for GWW I was made its Editor in Chief. I love everything I do and can't think of a better way to spend my time than to spread every form of geekery to every corner of the globe. Comics will all be my passion though and were my heart lies.
