Yeah, Adlard went overboard on that page. I didn't have a problem with Carl surviving, though. The Walking Dead's always been a comic where a few select people survive. Rick, Carl, Andrea, Glenn, Michonne. They're gonna be around a while. I never really feel like any of them are in danger at this point, given the length of time they've been in the comic and the ridiculous number of close calls they've had in that time.

Which will help that impact when one of them finally bites it.

You maniac! You jinxed it! Now my girls Andrea and Michonne are going to bite the dust in the next issue.

Well, technically, this doesn't necessarily mean that Carl needs to survive. Rick and Andrea can always do their part to contribute to the next generation, ahem.

God... waiting for 97 to come out is driving me nuts.

Has anyone else grown incredibly bored of WD?

I stopped buying it in January, and I still haven't gotten interested enough to catch up on it yet.

Last few issues have been fine for me, but I guess I'm just really looking forward to issue 100 dropping and seeing what they do there. Beforehand, before the debut of Jesus, it was getting a bit dull and long, but that seems to be Kirkman's way when he writes them getting comfortable so he can then amp it up with all the violence and corpses.

While I'll agree it was starting to become droll and redundant, the newest arc has a lot of potential. It seems a full-scale war is about to begin, and that has rekindled my interest in the book.

My wife and I are currently reading the series. Probably not as far along as you. So far I think the story is still exciting, although the TV show is superior to the comic book. Just my opinion. It will be great for season 3 to return in the fall.

Yeah, no, I found the series pretty damn exciting up until issue 85 or so. It's just since then that it's gotten stale.

But I do agree, this new arc does look like it could get the book back up to speed again.

I just don't TDK the interpersonal drama that's been going on currently is anywhere near as good as it was when they were in the prison or before.

I don't disagree with you.

Hah.

Yeah, the show's good, but it's nowhere near as good as those first 40 issues or so.

I don't even watch the show anymore. One season was enough to know it wasn't for me.

I'm just going to say the comic is one of my favorite books out right now and the show is one of my favorite shows. My interest in the comic hasn't been this high since the end of the prison, though I always love the comic.

I think it got a lot better during Season Two.

Season One was paced slow as ****, and nothing really ever happened.

In the second season, there's at least a good handful of shockers and cliff hangers like the comic.

There were some very good developments during season 2. And while I try to never miss it, I still enjoy the book more.

Even with its regular down times.

Probably one of the 5 best issues of the series. While it doesn't have nearly the emotional impact as my other favorite issues, the fast-paced, seemingly cover-to-cover action went a long way to make me forget about that. This was the perfect prelude to war. Kudos to Kirkman and Charlie.

My thoughts exactly. I really didn't want that to happen. This issue was just fantastic, like Mike said just non stop action. Leaves you feeling just like the characters at the end.

Even with that unfortunate death to a character I really liked, I can't wait for 3 weeks and see where this goes.

I'm probably a little behind you all in the reading of the comics. Just finished the issue in which the Governor finds the prison. Can't wait to pick up the next couple of volumes.
