IGN: The Walking Dead #163 Review

Recommended Posts

If the purpose of these reviews is simply to establish whether or not a comic is worth buying, then The Walking Dead #163 hardly needs the attention. This new issue is priced at a measly 25 cents. You literally can't go wrong at that price, unless you somehow manage to put yourself in the hospital from an infected paper cut or something. Cover price aside, this issue helps the series regain some of the momentum it lost at the tail-end of the "Whisperer War" crossover, though there is still reason to worry about The Walking Dead's current direction.

"The Whisperer War" ended on more of a whimper than a bang, but with the promise that Rick Grimes and the people of Alexandria were about to face their largest zombie attack ever. That attack forms the backbone of this issue, as Rick and the gang scramble to mount a last-ditch defensive against the endless horde. This issue definitely succeeds in terms of offering new readers an easy jumping-on point. The conflict is immediate and visceral, and it doesn't matter a great deal how familiar readers might be with individual characters.
