The Walking Dead #113 Review

The Walking Dead #113
Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard
Image Comics (Skybound Imprint)
No comic book gives me a heavier dose of anxiety than Walking Dead. This month, Kirkman puts three of the main characters in mortal danger and keeps them there in ways that keep your stomach in knots the entire issue. I’ll go on the record and say that Negan is the officially the scariest villain going in the comic world right now. If you read issue 100 you know he’s a cold-hearted killer, but it’s the restraint and intelligence that he’s shown since then that show that he’s much more than that. The WD creative team may not always hit the mark, but when they get it right - boy do they ever.

If you’re a lapsed reader or a fan of the show and want to catch up, go back and start with the “A Larger World” arc, beginning in issue 95 (available in trade as well). With a little bit of Wikipedia research, it’s a great place to jump on.

Rating: 5 out of 5 reanimated corpses
