Walking Dead Issue 113 Is Out!

walking-dead-113After many months of waiting, and doing as many comparative reviews between the comic and show to pass the time, the latest issue of the Walking Dead is finally out! And I’m looking forward to this and the next issue, as they provide the thrilling conclusion to yet another action-packed volume! This volume is entitled March to War, the 19th in the ongoing series, and it will be interesting to see just how much father he goes with it…

Without giving too much away, I would like to share with people what happens after the story involving the prison and the Governor ended. In terms of the comics, this would mean everything that took place after Volume 8 – Made to Suffer. In terms of the show, this covers all the material that is to come after season three, though there are likely to be some big time departures. So perhaps the spoiler alert is premature…

They eventually made their way back to Hershel’s farm, where they found the members of their crew that had left after the Governor’s first assault. Andrea and Dale were there too, which brought every surviving member of their crew back together.

After being joined by some wanderers, they began working their way to the East Coast (for reasons that shall remain a secret). After realizing the journey was not going to work out (secret!), they eventually found there way to another settlement and began to make a life for themselves again. Naturally, complication ensue, but all seems relatively good until they meet a new enemy, one that (as Khaalidah said) made “the Guv look like a little girl in a tutu.”

the-walking-dead-112-coverBoy was she right! People died, main character people, and all hope seemed lost. But of course, Rick had a plan and they began putting it into action. And after many issues of  trying to buy time and get ready, the stage is finally set for a big showdown. No telling how it will go, and as of the last issue, Rick found himself in some serious hot water with their newfound enemy.

This is also important to me because I’m thinking that as of issue 114, the conclusion to Volume 19, I might hang up reading the series for awhile. It’s been a blast, but its like watching an entire series on DVD and then being forced to wait a full year for a new season to air. It’s frustrating! Far better to get into something else and come back to it later, am I right?

  1. I’ve taken breaks from TWD comic in the past, let a few issues pile up, but its hard. In a couple of weeks the We’re Alive podcast will gear up again giving me a good zombie fix for a few months before they go on their hiatus. I’ll likely break from the comic while I listen to that. As for the show, I’ll be watching come October but not from the edge of my seat. Its passable entertainment, certainly, but in light of the comic it falls way way short.
    This is one time I don’t mind saying I told you so.

    1. Oh, tres drole, lady! And yes, you were right. I kind of have a rule of threes about this. That if three friends I know, trust and respect tell me I need to read something, I will. I think you were the second, but you’re vote does count as more than one 😉
