In review: Walking Dead #113
Created and written by Robert Kirkman, illustrated superbly by Charlie Adlard, Walking Dead issue 113 takes us back to the action packed and riveting story line we have come to love from this book. What is even cooler is that there is not a single zombie in the entire book and that is why this comic has the readership it does and was turned into a comic.
The Walking Dead is about people dealing with the end of the world and it just so happens that it is a zombie apocalypse, but that is what makes this book different from any other zombie book, it’s about the characters, not the zombies.
This issue finds Rick and his band of fellow survivors under the heel of the Saviors, with impending and brutal death as a distinct possibility at the hands of Negan and his wooden girlfriend Lucille, the barbed wire bat he carries and loves so much.
We also see Andrea fighting for her life in the tower she was perched in, against one of Negan’s knife yielding and bad ass enforcers, with Rick seemingly helpless on the ground, watching as she seemingly falls to her death.
This story arc is heating up folks and we can expect it to get even hotter as full out war comes to the pages of Walking Dead again beginning in issue #115 and continuing for 12 issues. WOW!!! I simply cannot wait to be along for that ride and all of this will come out in only seven months.
I love it Mr. Kirkman, please give us more and go pick up this issue as soon as you can.
