Advanced Review: The Walking Dead #104
Wow! That's truly all I can say.
Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard are continually making their fanbase into emotional wrecks and it's the compelling stories found in issues like The Walking Dead #104 that are doing it to them!
I don't know what I can say without spoiling the feeling of utter dread you receive when reading this issue. It is an emotional rollercoaster and you will find yourself screaming, "STOP," at the top of your lungs because you are at the precipice of something completely horrific!
Normally, when Kirkman delivers a devastating blow to the audience, i.e.. the death of Glenn, there is a lull in the story afterward. A "grieving" time if you will, a few issues where the reader can collect themselves, refocus on the storyline and brace themselves for whatever may come next. This time however, Kirkman is pulling no punches and has been berating us with emotional haymakers with every issue! There is no chance to breathe, let alone ready yourself for new horrors -- the hits just keep coming! And I wouldn't want it any other way!
The Walking Dead #104 is a tale with a lightening pace, page after page of action, drama and suspense that culminates in an ending that will make you hate the next thirty days until issue #105! There is no time for more build up or characterization, that time has passed, and it is now a "fight or die" scenario that our characters are in. The tides of change are upon us and there is no turning back!
I can't give you spoilers without ruining the entire book, but I will give you a taste! Rick gets mad, Jesus fights and Carl carries one big @$$ gun! Hopefully that will satiate your curiosity until tomorrow!
Hold on tight, kids! This is one scary ride we are about to go on!
