The hardbacks are absolutely gorgeous, 10/12 (can't remember) issues per book, one a year, large format and glossy pages. You can get them for 16/17 quid each new and they are totally worth it.

That lastest issue is stretching things;

In a world where there would be next to no background noise, the big bad baseball baddie drives a couple o monster army truck up to the walls of Rock's compound as surprise attacks 'em sigh

But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Have to agree. Includes cover art, sketches and plenty of written creative info.

Also, what exactly was Rick's grand plan that this turn of events was a surprise?  Even if Ezekiel's group had succeeded and the outpost hadn't come to his aid, wouldn't the Governer Negan have got rid of his zombie problem sooner or later?  Everyone always has, even without ammo.  Even without Negan's clever ploy, Alexandria's gate is completely undefendable because you can shoot and/or drive straight through it.  Defense in depth, people! 

And again I ask, where are the walkie talkies?  One call from Ezekiel to Rick and there are no surprises.

i think he was aiming for a war of attrition, with the herd wearing down Negan before he sent in his troops again, best laid plans etc

Those walkie talkies or their batteries could be powered by one of these solar thingies:

Or indeed Alexandria's own power supply.

Issue 131: one panel of zombies out of 22 pages. I'm starting to get this confused with my Radio Four Archers story lines...

There's more of em and they are pretty good at what they do, not to keen on the teen love element creeping in, but overall great to see a new and different threat.

Thought it was clever but ultimately disappointing. Had it actually been whispering zombies then that would have been creepy. As it is it looks like another human group v human group thing coming.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

I've just finished the two ALL OUT WAR trades and ended up more than a little confused.  There are some good individual small moments of conflict but the overall battle/war is poorly sketched out without much sense of place or time.

And after another "You kill, you die!" statement at the start of the War, Rick changes his mind and decided to bore the sweary Governor to death (before sneakily slashing his throat confident that his Doc can fix it???!!).

I haven't enjoyed this (long) storyline at all but am looking forward to some new stuff.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!
