Review: The Walking Dead Vol. 26: Call to Arms by Robert Kirkman

After being betrayed by members of his own community, Rick Grimes charts a new course and marshals his forces against the Whisperers. I find myself struggling with this current storyline. I know that it’s lasting about as long as every other major plot line in this series, but this war with the Whisperers just seems […]

After a devastating act of war by the Whisperers, Rick must chart a path for his community. But when his leadership is questioned, how will he respond?

Wolfen were the pinnacle of scientific achievement, redefining the limits of what it means to be human. Their counterparts, in turn, grew into the ultimate predators. Incapable of higher thought, converts were unstoppable in their need to […]

Review: The Walking Dead Vol. 24: Life and Death by Robert Kirkman

As the fair opens at Alexandria, old friends return from afar and new adversaries make their introductions. So it seems my hope that the Whisperers could find a way to be amicable with Rick and the rest of the colonies was short lived. It’s hard to describe them, because at times they almost seem savage-like. […]
