  1. So tired of Negan, if this issue doesn’t start to pick this story up a little, I’m dropping.

    • Funny, there is no in between feelings on Negan. Some people love the character and others loathe him. I can see why people dislike him but I for one like him. Excited to see what Kirkman has around the corner.

    • That does seem to be the case.

      I’m waiting on Negan. I was terrified of him during his issue #100 actions but have found him a bit much to take lately.

  2. I don’t think this qualifies as a spoiler, but just in case SPOILER:

    So what do you think he did to Carl?


    • something to do with his eye? He seems obsessed with it. Probably put a fake eye in or even probably took the other eye out.

    • Taking out the other eye would be appropriately fucked up, but possibly too predictable. Suggesting castration might be the most disturbing thing I’ve ever heard from you, Stu. It would definitely be evil, and I wouldn’t put it past Negan, but I’m not sure they’d go there.

      Maybe his right hand so both Grimes match?

      I dunno.

    • yeah castration is a little far out there with Carl. Interesting I hadn’t thought of that amputation and that would be messed up, but seriously how much more crap can they do to poor little Carl lol

    • I know castration was a messed up guess, but it is significantly less messed up than the first thing that came to mind: Putting something into the eye socket. Don’t think too hard about that.

    • I did. I couldn’t help it. And now my eye hurts.

    • Mine, too.

  3. Man not much really happened in this issue – more of a set up for next month!

  4. I think I may just drop this entirely and come back after a few trades. I dont know for me the Walking Dead seems to be just treading water. I think Kirkman has taken Rick as a character as far as he can go with him. Maybe its time to start thinking about the end game for this series. It probably wont happen because the book is making Kirkman and Image a crap ton of money but I find myself just getting bored with it. I probably came off as a bit hipsterish but I really do love this series and dont want to see it go the Fables route.

  5. i am loving this so much. the panel of carl sitting in the back of the truck a few issues ago was soooo awesome. “no seriously kid……fuck you” 🙂

  6. I’m not sure why we’ve seen so many “treading water” complaints month in and month out lately. To me, the book is moving at the same pace it always has. Is it our memory? Are a lot of fans recollecting the blend of action and down time differently in retrospect? I’d be curious to see how many of these complaints are coming from people who started in trade. I’ve been reading since #1, and I honestly don’t notice a difference in formula. There are ebbs and flows in both quality and action, but that’s the way it’s always been. Personally, the important thing is that this book has never dipped below a 3/5 for me, and that’s astounding.

    Good issue. Looking forward to the next one, as always.

  7. Nothing happened this issue. SPOILERS: Negan said he would do something to Carl to Carl. Ten he told Rick he did something. Nothing shown. No character development. Complete filler issue. This takes decompressed to a new level. I’m probably gonna drop off single issues if there’s not some serious move on the story in the next issue.

    • Carl telling Negan to jump out the window = character development.

      The new lady telling Spencer to forget about Andrea, and Spencer staring like a psycho through the gate = character development.

      Aaron and Eric arguing over whether or not to leave the community = character development.

      Jesus coming to Rick with the location and layout of Negan’s compound = character development.

      Rick coming face to face with Negan on the road to the compound = character development.

      Everything that happens in EVERY issue is plot/character development, no matter how small. Sure it varies, but that’s always been the case. Kirkman loves building tension, but you and I both know that when the shit hits the fan, it’s going to be explosive. Unless you have a crystal ball, you have no way of knowing what events from this issue wil come into play down the line.

    • Agree that people were saying they are going to do something, but it seems like Negan didn’t just say he would but did.

      No character development…

      Wow, davidtobin100.

      Lets try not to complain just to complain.

  8. im loving walking dead right now
