The fate of Carl has, at least so far, been determined and all has turned right with the world again. Or so you think!

Robert Kirkman does what he does best in issue #108 of The Walking Dead. He has slowly built a story that is multi-faceted and wholly engaging! In this issue we begin to see an array of future possibilities, not only for Rick and Carl, but the entire cast of the book. Extremely character driven, Kirkman takes his time delving into the inner most thoughts of the group and some of it's villains'. 

There are some great moments in this issue, beginning with a few pages of Carl and Michonne building a rapport that fans of the AMC television series will surely appreciate! But, it is not just this fierce duo that takes the spotlight. A bevy of characters try to work through some emotional turmoil, creating an issue that truly immerses the reader into the inner workings of these characters. It is robust with dialogue, seasoned with all the gory action we have come to love and doused with a shocking revelation that, may or may not, bring the end to a brand new beginning.

Along with the surprises, Kirkman has also introduced not only some new characters, but essentially a whole other "world" in this issue. I do not want to spoil anything regarding this intriguing place but I will say, "Hail to the King!" It is somewhat amusing at first but once you have entered this "other realm", your penchant for laughter will abruptly stop and you will be as enthralled and intrigued as you were the first time you read an issue of TWD

It is a glorious time to be a fan of The Walking Dead and this issue goes to show that the possibilities for it's continued growth are endless!
